1 1 Why ETSI is the place to bridge EU and LA initiatives on e-administration Francisco Da Silva Chairman of the Kick Off Meeting Sophia Antipolis, March

2 2 Problem?

3 3 Fragmentation of the standards making market and usage driven standardization (e.g. e-gov) huge consequences on Interoperability End to end monolithic standards are behind us Complex value chains Service platform approach with multiple layers Standard & non-standard building blocks

4 4 Standards and Interoperability The very meaning of Interoperability evolves with stakeholders and markets needs: From specifying end to end systems to a logic of building blocks From standardizing interfaces ex ante to addressing interoperability of components ex post Standardization has always been about ensuring interoperability A fundamental objective of all stakeholders (industry, policy-makers, users)

5 5 Where the Value Added is Networks infrastructure Terminals, Appli. & Services Hardware Soft Hardware Software Hard Software 60s 70s 80s 90s 90s 00s

6 6 Standardizing Interfaces ex-ante (traditional telecom approach) Ensuring Interoperability of components ex-post (ICT approach) Two ways to look at Standardization

7 7 Telecoms Network Services IT Middle ware IT applications Mobiles applications Multimedia applications Mobile Middle ware MM Middle ware Network Services Network Services Telecoms Convergence Network Services (IP) Middleware IT applications Mobiles applications Multimedia applications Telecoms Convergence emphasizes the role of middleware Copyright ITEMS International

8 8 What we are aiming at

9 9 Diversity of situations / We also have in common… Convergence of paths New telecom policies / New regulatory regimes The Objective: the Information Society for All The means: Ambitious ICT programmes The way: Create profitable industrial ecosystems that benefit private sector, governments and end users Virtuous circle Investments developments profits investments

10 10 Problem solver

11 11 ETSI, a track record of interoperable solutions for cross border services Mobile communications Fixed networks Next Generation Networks Digital and audio Broadcasting PMR/PAMR Emergency communications Satellite communications Security and Encryption etc

12 12 ETSI, a habit of working with international partners 3GPP, MESA ITU, ISO, IEC GTSC, GRSC Fora and Consortia Members from 55 countries …and a supporting organization with staff from more than 20 countries Nobody does it in isolation

13 13 ETSI, a set of technical bodies and competence centres dedicated to Interoperability MTS (Methods for Testing and Certification) Protocols and Testing competence centre Plugtests To validate and ensure interoperability i.e. sustainability, scalability, backward compatibility, security of investments

14 14 Protocol and Testing Competence Centre Assists ETSI Technical bodies in application of state of the art specification and testing techniques in a pragmatic and flexible manner to help ensure technical quality of ETSI deliverables Team of 4 leading experts, plus an assistant Complements the work of Technical Committee MTS (Methods for Testing & Specification)

15 15 Plugtests Created in 1999, specialized in the organization of test events Experts from ETSI and other technical communities Neutral and open to all organisations Synergy Conformance & Interoperability in close cooperation with ETSI Committees and PTCC 57 events in 5 years 3000 engineers 900 Companies

16 16 ETSI, in charge of the Dialogue on Standards within programme Usage driven standardization, a worldwide paradigm Aims at bridging initiatives dealing with interoperability profiling Inviting partner organizations to start exploring topics together…for mutual benefit Nobody does it in isolation
