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.
B roadband is an accelerator of social and economic development:
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
B roadband applications enable economic and social benefits such as:
Public safety and national security
Distance learning/educational tools
Accessible communications for persons with disabilities
May 7 FCC Summit, VoIP and persons with disabilities
W ide variety of broadband platforms:
DSL/fiber to the premises (FTTP), Fiber to the Zone
Mobile wireless networks (3G)
Fixed wireless (licensed, Wi-Fi ® , WiMAX)
"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
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.
