5 BT 21 CN Advanced network based on intelligent systems using key technologies: IP is key as common transport protocol for all types of communication and applications SIP allows service provider to control the communications activity to meet a customers requirements MPLS enables the efficient designation and routing of BB IP traffic flows IP Multi-media Sub-system (IMS) to support innovative services Also: SDH, Virtual LAN, WDM With the migration of its network to NGN (21 Century Network), BT expects savings in operating expenses of £1bn (about 1.5bn ) starting 2008/09. The expected investment amounts to £10bn (about 15bn ) (KIRSCH, HIRSCHHAUSEN, 2008) December 2009ITU-D Regional Workshop, Cairo5

7 IMS is central to plans: once in place, will deploy fixed and mobile IP-based services, starting with simple voice services and moving to VoIP-based IP Centrex, wireless virtual PBX and messaging services Issues: regulatory confusion How are VoIP calls classified and charged for? Is it voice, or is it data? Net neutrality and IP interconnect: who gets paid for what when an incumbent shares its network with 3 rd party service providers? December 2009ITU-D Regional Workshop, Cairo7

8 KPN estimated that the network would require an additional 1.5 billion in capex. KPN focused on building an all-IP backbone first and then an all-IP access network on top of this. The backbone is now largely completed and the access network underway. KPN has revised its capex spend for the transformation to 0.9 billion. expects a reduction in operating costs of 850 million up to 2009 while the total capital expenses for the migration are estimated to be 0.9 billion. The extension of fiber to the street cabinets renders the MDFs obsolete. About 200 of the 1,391 MDF locations will remain in operation as interconnection points to the backbone (HENDRIKS, 2007, OPTA, 2006b). KPN expects an additional revenue of 1 billion from sales of the MDF real estate (KIRSCH, HIRSCHHAUSEN, 2008) December 2009ITU-D Regional Workshop, Cairo8

10 15-16 December 2009ITU-D Regional Workshop, Cairo Shenzhen NGN commercial pilot network represents the largest achievement in bringing about the evolution of PSTN from its current state, to that of NGN. In this network, the softswitch acts as the control center, the SHLR acts as the data center, and the ENIP acts as the unified service platform. The overall capacity of the entire network reaches up to 600,000 lines/300,000 trunks, with 150,000 actual subscribers accessed through AGs. Some of the reasons to be proud would include the following: It greatly improves network performance. At present, it gives birth to the largest NGN end office (33,000 lines). It breaks Shenzhen Telecoms current record of PSTN end office cutover efficiency. Two end offices (42,000 lines in total) were cut over with high QoS in two consecutive days. From equipment installation to operation after cutover, it takes less than 20 days. It boasts the largest commercial IP Centrex group in the world. Only, RBT, UC, and Real-Time multimedia services exhibit similar vitality. As an intelligence platform, it provides new intelligent phone call services and other value-added services for its three million AND subscribers in the network. THE PROJECT STARTED IN 2002 by China Telecom and finished in (Huawei Service, Multimedia library, Issue 20, 2005 ). 10

11 On September 18, 2004 the first NGN end office was established in Fuyong. Some 15,000 subscribers from the original TDM switch were transferred to the NGN network in a matter of minutes. Although the cutover lasted less than 10 minutes, it was a historical moment in the development of the China telecommunications network, because it marked the first time that NGN was able to replace the TDM end offices in the PSTN Three more end offices (the Boling office - 16,400 lines, Nanyou office - 26,000 lines, and Huangmugang office - 33,000 lines) were cutover within half a year. The cutover of these four offices were quick and orderly, and perhaps are best exemplified by the idea -- "from suburb to downtown"and "from small to large". By April 2005, Shenzhen Telecom successfully established a commercial NGN that accommodates more than 150,000 subscribers December 2009ITU-D Regional Workshop, Cairo11

12 While rebuilding the end office, the idea of NGN to separate call control from media bearer was brought into actual play. For the first time, high-capacity AGs were put into the original TDM switch room. As a result, subscribers under the original TDM switch were successfully transferred to the AGs within a matter of minutes. Furthermore, the AGs inherited all the access modes of the traditional TDM network such as; ordinary subscriber line, long-distance subscriber line, polarity reversal subscriber line, ISDN subscriber line, analog PBX trunk, digital PBX trunk, and V5 trunk. Also, the end users were shielded so that they were not aware of any changes in the core network. As for operation and maintenance, the distributed client mode was adopted in order to retain the original maintenance habit December 2009ITU-D Regional Workshop, Cairo12

13 Schenzhen Telecom Improved network operation quality: Operation records from the four NGN end offices of Shenzhen Telecom are convincing proof of an improved network operation quality. For instance, the 33,000-line Huangmugang office (the NGN end office with the largest capacity) serves as a good example. The operation indices from the NGN end office are much better than those of the original office, and the call completion rate showed an increase of 12%. Even with an increase in traffic, the softswitch system continued to run stably and the indices were much improved. Lower maintenance cost: After the original end office was converted into an NGN end office, indices like integrity, occupied space, and power consumption of the NGN equipment proved to be superior to those of the original TDM switch. After rebuilding, the occupied space was reduced by 40%, and power consumption by 63%. Hence, in a large-scale NGN, the maintenance cost will obviously be much lower. With its innate advantages in services like, IP Centrex and video services, NGN will quickly become the first choice in the rebuilding of the TDM network.

16 Korea can serve as a good example for developing countries in whole or in part in this arena as it is in the midst of migrating to its own next generation network referred to as BcN or Broadband Convergence Network. The key drivers of deploying NGN December 2009ITU-D Regional Workshop, Cairo16

18 15-16 December 2009ITU-D Regional Workshop, Cairo The BcN Roadmap shows the different phases in the different networks that incorporate the whole BcN. From 2004 and 2005, four consortiums were formed (made up of major telecom companies and local cable companies who all had a stake in nurturing the market) and first set up pilot projects/test beds in order to test potential applications and business models of convergence services including video phones, IPTV, VoIP, wireless sensor networking, etc. A public-private-partnership (PPP) model has been activated in the implementation of the BcN. This basically means the private sector builds and commercializes networks and services, whereas the government arranges laws, polices and the necessary standardization conditions for new services.
