1 Bernard BARANI EC INFSO D Directorate Network and Communication Technologies STANDARDS AND INTEROPERABILITY IN ICT ETPs ETSI, October Sophia Antipolis - France ICT R&D and standards: From experience to prospects

2 From a policy perspective Support Internal Market and deployment of pan EU systems/services; Open standards facilitate competition and consumer protection; Promote global solutions, and support emergence of EU positions on global issues; From a research perspective a powerful consensus making instrument; an instrument to catalyse exploitation of research results; an efficient co-operation platform with other regions of the world; A natural link to research for those issue that are system oriented From the inception of the Framework Programme in the 80s, ICT R&D has been systematically encouraged to generate standardisation spinn offs, especially in the telecom, broadcasting, and audio visual domains, mainly through ETSI, DVB and MPEG groups. The Importance of Standardisation

3 OFDM on copper pair, ADSL, then VDSL: RACE, ACTS ADSL deployment success worldwide, EU companies at the forefront; BRAN, HiperLan, HiperMAN: RACE, ACTS WiFi and WiMax deployments/prospects; Fiber to the Cabinet/curb/…/Home: from RACE to IST FP6 prospects for FTTH are now becoming real, European deployment initiatives and clarification of regulatory regime 3G/UMTS: RACE, ACTS EU success at standardisation level; Y2005: significant take off of UMTS world-wide, exceeding EV-DO. Strong position of EU industry leveraging the GSM expertise B3G/4G: ACTS, IST FP5, IST FP6 issue still developing, EU FP actions support partnership with Asia (CJK, mITF, FuTURE, NGMC) Broadband Satellite: ACTS, IST FP5, IST FP6 High expectations, high investments, still niche markets. Availability of DVB-RCS and DVB S2 standard DTV-HDTV: from RACE to IST FP5 world-wide success of DVB standard; promising prospects for EU led technology like MPEG4 for HDTV; MHP gaining momentum. Strong EU industrial leaders. Mobile TV, DVB-H : from ACTS to IST FP6 promising technology developed in the EU, need to progress on the regulatory/spectrum front. PLC: IST FP6 consolidated EU expertise, even if PLC at the access level may be less prominent UWB: IST FP5, FP6 better positioning of EU industry and regulatory regime being clarified EU R&D: Broadband Technologies

4 Competition bearing fruits. 15% (of EU population) penetration. Incumbents: less than 50% of the access share. Costs of LLU and shared access have dropped by more than 30% between 2002 and Access rates in the DSL range, FTTx plans. Uneven situation across MS. Resulting landscape

5 : GSM R&D : COST 207 contributions to GSM Radio; 1987: GSM Directive requesting MS to reserve frequency band in the 900 MHz range 1988: ETSI creation and Special Mobile Group (SMG) : COST 231, definition of multi-band radio handsets : RACE phase II, launch of exploratory 3G EU projects on TDMA CDMA options 1992: First Commercial GSM network opens 1992: ITU WARC FPLMTS allocation 1994: Industrial RACE UMTS Vision : ACTS, launch of a consistent series (40M+) on 3G ACTS Contribution to CAMEL under SMG, through Intelligent Network R&D 1997: Creation of UMTS Forum out of the ACTS UMTS Task Force 1998: ETSI UMTS standard from FRAMES project, Rel 99 from RAINBOW project 1999: EU Council UMTS Decision, not retaining licensing harmonisation across EU : IST launch, 120 ME investments in early Beyond 3G R&D 2000: ITU allocation of IMT 2000 Extension bands 2001: WWRF creation, out of an IST initiative; 2002: 1 st EU CEPT mandate to harmonise extension bands 2002: ITU WP8F 4G Vision document based on IST work: interop, SW radio, multi layer radios, all IP : Launch of IST FP6, 300 M+ dedicated to SB3G 2003: WRC 2003 opens an agenda item under WRC 07 to explore 4G allocations 2004: Launch of the Wireless World Initiative, IST sponsored 2005: Launch of the eMobility ETP 2G 3G B3G EU R&D: Mobile Technologies

6 Mobile: a continuous success. All Member States at least at 80% penetration (Poland a little lower), and growth rates still above 6%, some MS above 10%. Increased competition, 79 operators, 214 MVNOs. Take off of 3G: 79 licenses 59 commercial networks (09-05). Video very popular. Source: EC, 11th implementation report Resulting landscape

9 Reducing churn, Capex, Opex and opening new Networked business opportunities From Single technologies as business, social and growth enablers to integrated complex systems as enablers; Converged systems and offers have become integral part of the evolution strategies put forward by ICT players and are getting increased recognition from the markets; Convergence has been recognised as an important trend and policy enabler under the i2010 ICT Policy Framework proposed by the EC. It cuts across the 3 pillars (Information space, Innovation, Inclusion); In other regions of the world, this trend has also been recognised as a driver for R&D policies (839 initiative of Korea, u_Japan…) - Cross cutting issues become more systematic; - Impact on the siloed networks, and on the siloed standards Context for Future Research

10 Proliferation of connected devices, from passive RFID to active sensors; Edge networking, context awareness, event filtering, event management through distributed middleware; Service architectures, from syntactic description and static programmed services to semantic modelling and dynamic service discovery; Networked distributed computing platforms, Grid computing Content explosion, long tail, Web 2.0. From content search protection and delivery to (user ctrld) content management; Trust in the Net Wireless, from last mile to last meter: multiplicity of topologies, ad-hoc, meshed..Cognitive radio, spectrum. Internet limitations Broadband, broadband, broadband... Pervasive Networking: a sample of R&D Technological Drivers + Regional Initiatives: GENI, u_Korea, u_Japan, 863..

12 Consumer control Access to advertising budgets with value models valuing the addressed customer base; Telco models vs Internet models; Cellular models vs Fixed-mobile convergence models; Access to spectrum, broadcast vs mobile vs satcom; Access to content owners; Open models vs closed models Making the various models possible whilst ensuring level playing competition and customer protection are at the heart of the EC technological and regulatory actions. Standards have a role to play in making possible a variety of converged business models These are possible topics for X Platform issues Implications and Challenges

13 Technological pace: the various dimensions of standards Source: WWRF Networks Policies Long cycles – up to ~ a decade Investigation and test of new radio technology Regulation and allocation of spectrum Development of new generation radio products Medium cycles – ~7 years for IP based functions (e.g. for mobility) Introduction of IPv6 will last longer Terminals Short cycles – up to ~2 years Moores Law, Hardware changes, new peripherals and innovative form factors Terminals Shorter cycles – up to ~1 a year Dynamic evolution of services Regular updates of targets required Services Different innovation cycles – and of market entry barriers - may imply different approaches to standardisation, from ex ante to ex post.

14 Convergence and diversity of players brings about different approaches to standard related issues : Classical FRAND IPR model, with patent royalties considered as the fair remuneration of research. Model getting increasingly complex, due to emergence of myriad of players and possible instability; Emergence of new models, e.g OSS model or royalty free models; consumer interests (open standards), vs Differentiations (close business models?); Time to market and economic efficiency (standards e.g. de facto, not necessarily open) Importance of Software, from system standard to interface standard Is the classical model of collaborative R&D feeding industrial consensus and standards still appropriate? How can converged platforms with varying srd models be sustainable? How to best couple R&D with standardisation? Can the Platforms help? Implications and Challenges

15 - From a mainly Internal market driven perspective (EU wide harmonisation) à la GSM with single std approach - Towards a market driven pro competitive environment where several standards may co-exist. - Whist there is a tendency to oppose these approaches, they are not necessarily exclusive: …. It is often asked whether, on balance, standardization acts more to constrain innovation or to enable innovation. From our perspective these two activities are inextricably linked. Standardization does constrain activities but in doing so creates an infrastructure for subsequent innovation. Well-designed standards should be able to reduce undesirable outcomes. Moreover, standardization is not just about producing norms for given technologies in given markets. Standardization helps to credibility, focus and critical mass in markets for new technologies….(Manchester Business School, report for DTI). - Deployment of pan EU widely adopted standards remains an option, e.g. mobile TV on-going debate; - -In this case, a co-ordinated approach of industry towards the regulator is key (see creation of EMBC). Role for Platforms? The Changing environment

16 IST FP6: a significant effort has been devoted to co- operation with third countries; In standard related areas, Asia and South America have received particular attention (e.g IST call 6); Several approaches to standards co-operation: ex ante (std not yet existing), ex post (existing standard); Varying levels of results and experiences; A solid approach to International co-operation and standards is required for IST FP7. ETP contribution in this field would be very desirable. Standards, R&D and International Co-operation

17 The Bulk of this R&D or co-operation activity is directly or indirectly related to standards, with significant participation of industry A Typical example: China in IST FP6

23 Strong interactions between ICT R&D and standards has proved to be an efficient way to valorise research results; Changing environment through convergence and complexity: different approaches to stds will co-exist; Very competitive environment and sector getting mature, implies that pan EU deployment of standardised systems and technologies should be approached on a case by case basis In this context, strong industrial consensus and orientations towards regulators are key; With partnership in the order of Members, European Technology Platforms are well placed to initiate the discussion on standards already at R&D level Conclusions

26 Recommendations of the ICT Task Force: Industry recommends that any policy effort relating to technical interoperability should encourage broad stakeholder cooperation and voluntary market-oriented solutions to achieve the goal of interoperability rather than legislate the specific means to achieve it. In support of industry-led efforts, the EU and the Member States should maintain a policy priority for interoperability along other key objectives such as innovation and security, support industry-led standardisation and promote the widespread adoption of standards in products and service implementations. Policy measures should allow for temporal and business considerations in a competitive marketplace and may include, as appropriate, active dialogue with industry on challenges in formation of value networks and other potential barriers to implementation of interoperability as well as maintaining an agenda of priority identification, target-setting and monitored progress of interoperability in respect of an evolving priority list of functional digital enablers of ICT innovation and uptake. ).
