  • 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.
