Tatiana Kurakova, Telecommunication Standardization Sector Engineer 24 June 2004, Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe

2 A View of Terminal Mobility Versus Personal Mobility
must carry a wireless terminal must be within radio coverage Network wireless Personal mobility need not carry a terminal must have a personal number Network wireline A View of Terminal Mobility Versus Personal Mobility

3 Definitions Mobility is the ability to provide services irrespective of environment changes that may occur by mobile user/terminal/network's activities. Personal mobility is the ability of a user to access telecommunication services at any terminal on the basis of a personal identifier, and the capability of the network to provide those services delineated in the user's service profile. Terminal mobility is the ability of a terminal to access telecommunication services from different locations and while in motion, and the capability of the network to identify and locate that terminal.

26 What is NGN ? A full (carrier class and business class) service network Telephony and other Legacy (including Internet access) services Data, including High speed access to Internet and its applications Video (VOD, Streaming) Digital TV Broadcast, Multimedia (combining all of the above) Mobility and Nomadism. Interworking with Legacy services for Human and Machine users (including RFIDs machines) Network features and technical characteristics Packet-based (IP, MPLS, ATM, Ethernet) transport IP and service intelligence, in an IP-managed network Distributed, transport-resource-session-service independent control Using IP-friendly (well defined profile) protocols

27 The Transformed Network
Always on Anytime, anywhere and in any form Voice and multimedia Self service, intuitive Simple for the end user Secure, trusted and reliable So - what’s a transformed network all about? This is a spec. And this is actually very different from today’s network. Looks a lot the same, very different. Dramatically lower in cost and that’s going to happen because the technology is going to keep moving, just like it has for PCs. “Always-on.” Networks aren’t always on today. Be reached anytime, anywhere, in any form. So we have voice mobility today, we need to be able to take our work and our play with us. Voice + Multimedia. Inherently voice + multimedia. So some people say ‘why do you put voice in there because multimedia includes voice?’ Yes, but let’s make the point. Voice is just another applications but it’s a very stringent application that requires demanding things of the network. And right now, voice is on a separate network and if you want to have a multimedia experience, you, the user, are coordinating the voice bridge with a bunch of digits to dial, the desktop with a bunch of applications to figure out how to use. And we have the capability now to do that as simply as dialling a phone. So the technology exists, we just need to roll it out in the network. Self-Serve and Intuitive: the networks need to be self-serve. Everybody, whether they’re an enterprise or a carrier, tells me everyday ‘the networks cost too much to operate.’ And the long run solution over that is make them self-serve. So, as in the example I mentioned, use IMS so that I can configure my communications configuration, not cause the carrier to have to pick up the phone and I’m going to ask him to run these three numbers to one voic . One. Then they have to have people to take the order. And if you go back far enough, you get John’s work order when the cord-boards were around. So just as that couldn’t survive, the carrier having to take the order for these things today can’t survive, the network’s got to be self-service. It needs to be simpler for the end user. It needs to be secure, trusted and reliable. And it’s not in a lot of place, a lot of the network we use today is best efforts. And the voice network is pretty secure, trusted and reliable, a lot of the networks are not. And it needs in fact to be a platform for services creation, it needs to be more sophisticated itself, the network has to have services in it itself.

28 When is NGN coming in ? Some (pre-NGN) pieces are already there:
PSTN (VoIP, VoATM) trunking, some VoIP offers Private/corporate network solutions (Centrex IP, IP VPN…) A long way to the 21st Network. Convergence of Telephony and Data (IT, Internet) approaches: PSTN/ISDN evolving towards NGN oriented platforms Replacement of obsolete PSTN/ISDN network elements: 2005 onwards Packet Data networks evolution (Fixed-Internet convergence) Evolving from the current High Speed Internet access (ADSL, WLAN …) platforms To offer new generation Services: 2005 onwards Mobile convergence (IMS): 2006 onwards

29 How will NGN be developed and deployed ?
Replacing progressively legacy PSTN elements/areas Only when becoming obsolete (too little OPEX/CAPEX gain, particularly in Core) Migration of PSTN->NGN might accelerate after 2010 (PSTN lines moved to DSLAMs -> VoIP) Green field deployment (today) Overlay deployment, building over xDSL and Fiber-based access to Internet ADSL is being deployed fast, with huge investments Opportunity to provide new (audio-data-video) services Convergence between Fixed-Mobile and Internet services/applications Nomadicity (Mobility Management for Roaming) Mobility through Fixed WLAN (spectrum from Fixed ->Nomadic->Mobile) Harmonizing/Converging with Mobile IMS and IP-Cable

30 Recommended follow-up Actions
Define Services Framework Generic service Building blocks (or Capabilities) Harmonized with Mobile and Cable/Broadcast Define reference Architecture Built upon IMS, adapted to accommodate xDSL access Identify Scenarios and Evolution Steps Identify Interfaces subject to standardization Prioritise Standardization areas and requirements Select protocols and specify their profile(s) Interact (and share) with relevant SDOs (IETF, 3GPP) and Fora (e.g. DSL, MSF …)
