1 ETSI Conference Standards & Interoperability in ICT ETPs October, 2006 Panel 3 Moderator: Anthony Wiles, ETSI PTCC Standards and Interoperability - do they matter for ETPs? If so, how far can we/should we go?
2 The Panellists Brigitte Cardinaël Head of Cooperative Research, FT R&D, Orange Christian Rigal Standards Technical Manager, Alcatel Alenia Space David Kennedy Director, Eurescom Fiona Williams Research Director (Networks and Applications), Ericsson Jochen Friedrich EICTA Interoperability Task Force (IBM) John Boggis Head of Standards, Vodafone Group Roman Kužnar Director Sintesio, Iskratel
3 Interoperability is the Ultimate Aim of ICT Standardisation Interoperability is the red thread running through the ETSI Standards Making Process Not an isolated issue to somehow be fixed at the end! Especially relevant in the context of multi-SDO standardisation ETSI approach Manage for interoperability! Design for interoperability! Validate for interoperability! Test for interoperability! Maintain for interoperability! Download the ETSI White Paper #3 Achieving Technical Interoperability – the ETSI Approach
4 Some Issues for Panel 3? Do standards enable or hinder interoperability? How to recognize which areas of an ETP should be standardised? How to capitalise on the practical activities of ETPs (prototypes, platforms, testbeds) to ensure feedback into standardisation (validation)? How to effectively involve standards bodies in ETPs from an early stage (and vice versa)? How to ensure that ETP results can easily be assimilated into standards? How to ensure consistent standardisation in a multi- SDO environment, also taking ETP input into account? Ensuring interoperability between ETPs (for example e-mobility and NEM) Maintenance? Standards must live a long time!
