    • NGN Broadband Access: TIA Broadband Drivers, Principles, and VoIP Contact: David Thompson, TIA Dan Bart, TIA GSC9/Joint_026 Dan Bart, TIA, Dbart@tiaonline.org CONTACT: Joint 4.4 AGENDA ITEM: NGN Broadband Access TITLE: TIA, SOURCE:
    • U.S. Market Overview: New Trends
      • Bundled services, flat-rate pricing
      • Local/long-distance distinction disappearing
      • IP applications entering mainstream
      • Wireless data traffic growing
        • 3G deployments with enhanced data capabilities
      • Cable attracting voice customers
    • U.S. Market Overview: Network Equipment
      • Spending on network equipment fell 73% in last three years.
      • Rebound anticipated, but not a return to late 1990s spending levels.
      • New drivers: broadband, bundled services, data transport , digital video, VoIP .
      • High-speed access is growing.
    • Broadband: Benefits
      • B roadband is an accelerator of social and economic development:
      • Jobs multiplier
      • Increases in worker productivity, wages and more service offerings at lower prices
      • Creation of new or offshoot industries
      • Additional investment in R&D
      • Greater efficiencies in distribution of goods, services and information
      • Increased demand for equipment
      • Greater investment in next-generation networks
      • Reduction in the digital divide
    • Broadband: Benefits
      • B roadband applications enable economic and social benefits such as:
      • Public safety and national security
      • Telemedicine
      • Teleworking
      • E-Government
      • Distance learning/educational tools
      • Utility applications
      • Accessible communications for persons with disabilities
        • May 7 FCC Summit, VoIP and persons with disabilities
    • Broadband: Platforms
      • W ide variety of broadband platforms:
      • DSL/fiber to the premises (FTTP), Fiber to the Zone
      • Cable modems
      • Mobile wireless networks (3G)
      • Fixed wireless (licensed, Wi-Fi ® , WiMAX)
      • Satellites
      • Powerline technologies
      • What’s next?
      • "Wi-Fi ® " is a registered trademark of the Wi-Fi Alliance
    • Broadband: Sector Snapshot
      • High-speed access by consumers and businesses is growing.
      • Spending on services reached $13 billion in 2003 and is expected to grow to $25 billion by 2007.
      • Cable will retain subscriber advantage, but spending on DSL services will pass spending on cable in 2006.
      • Wireless and fiber access will generate $3.4 billion in revenue in 2007.
    • Broadband: Worldwide Deployment
      • U.S. Lags Behind in Broadband
      • Deployment
      • Other countries, led by Korea and Canada, have strategic vision for broadband deployment.
      • U.S. must not be outpaced by major trading partners in deployment of cutting-edge technologies and networks.
      • Lack of broadband connectivity inhibits job creation in the U.S.
    • Broadband: New Applications
      • Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP)
      • Personalized, unified communications
      • Integration of voice, data, other applications in a manner not previously possible
      • Flexibility and computing power not found in circuit- switched networks
    • Broadband: TIA Broadband Principles
      • The United States needs a national broadband policy to drive widespread deployment.
      • Affordable, highly advanced and secure communications services should be available to all Americans.
      • Competitive market forces, not regulations, should be the principal means of achieving this goal.
      • Governments should intervene only where such intervention (1) is necessary to effectively address a specific, critical problem and (2) is targeted and otherwise designed to minimize disruption to competitive market forces.
    • Broadband: TIA Broadband Principles
      • Governments should make available the necessary radio spectrum for the deployment of advanced communications services.
      • Governments should implement policies that encourage investment in new and diverse communications technologies.
      • All players — government, private sector and consumers — should participate in the formulation of broadband policy.
    • Broadband: TIA’s Broadband Mission
      • P romote ubiquitous broadband deployment globally.
      • Seek regulatory-free zone for new, last-mile broadband investments.
      • Work for removal of barriers to broadband deployment including rights of way, franchise fees and excessive taxes.
      • Support fiscal incentives, such as tax credits, grants, pilot-project funding and low-interest loans.
      • Assist international organizations to realize the economic and social benefits of broadband.
      • Encourage deployment of all broadband access technologies.
      • Seek additional globally harmonized spectrum allocations.
    • TIA VoIP
    • Broadband: TIA VoIP Policy Principles for the U.S.
      • Regulation should not be applied to VoIP without thorough justification that it is necessary as a matter of public policy.
      • A single federal policy for VoIP regulation is a must and, in fact, the nature of the technology demands such an approach.
      • All communications technologies should play a part in advancing core public interest issues, such as emergency response needs and universal service.
      • VoIP offerings should be marketed in a manner that allows consumers to make informed choices.
    • Broadband: TIA’s U.S. VoIP Mission
      • Promote growth of IP networks and applications unfettered by economic regulation.
      • Ensure one national policy on regulatory treatment of VoIP.
      • Seek industry-driven solutions for core public interest issues.
