  4. 4. Strategic Direction <ul><li>Soliciting broader involvement of non-traditional operator/vendor sectors; e.g., entertainment (content developers, aggregators, distributors). </li></ul><ul><li>Enabling the NG-service oriented network; e.g., programs/ application/ software development and developers. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Marrying the Worlds of the Web and the Traditional Telco </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Identifying the characteristics of an ideal service creation and delivery environment where industry utilizes the combined strengths of the traditional telco’s (five 9s) reliability with the Web/Internet’s flexibility and scalability . </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Creating venues/processes which more effectively enable ATIS’ committees to take an approach to standards that crosses network/service domains. </li></ul><ul><li>Implementing greater Green efficiencies in not only the standards development process but in considering what technology aspects to standardized. </li></ul><ul><li>Continuing emphasis on the business implications of technology choices – the intersection of where technology meets business. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Challenges <ul><li>Initiating industry’s paradigm shift away from (network/service) domain specific ideologies, allegiances and thus standards to an unified cross-domain converged approach to communications. </li></ul><ul><li>Delivering implementable standards when and where needed, given the increased complexity of the network, the technology and the overall industry landscape. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Industry stakeholders are expanding and evolving </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Network is radically changing/transforming, marrying the worlds of telco and web. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Engaging the open source (i.e., web/Internet) community to enable greater accessibility/availability for developers while maintaining the strengths of the traditional telco’s (five 9s) reliability. </li></ul><ul><li>Creating standards to enable industry to develop new services which attract users (and applications with their developers) and monetizing on those services. </li></ul><ul><li>Involving/retaining experienced standards participants (i.e., resources) with a good understanding of the converged network, the technologies, and overall direction of the industry. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Next Steps/Actions <ul><li>Enlist broader involvement/participation of the non-traditional telco sector in the standardization process; e.g., the entertainment and applications developers communities. </li></ul><ul><li>Implement actions resulting from ATIS’ initiatives on the Home Network, Service-Oriented Networks, and Green . </li></ul><ul><li>Continue to engage ATIS’ executive-level Board to assess industry’s strategic business direction and subsequent technical/ operations needs. </li></ul><ul><li>Continue to assess new models by which standards can best be developed to respond to marketplace opportunities and demands. </li></ul><ul><li>Foster continuing collaboration amongst industry’s standards developers. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Supplemental Slides
  8. 8. Exploratory Group on Convergence (EGC) <ul><li>The Exploratory Group on Convergence (EGC) released its Report and Recommendations in September 2007, defining the scope and meaning of convergence and identifying high level issues and recommendations for standards, requirements, and architecture to support NGN inter-working. </li></ul><ul><li>The EGC concluded: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Realizing the full potential of convergence will require a fundamental shift in the industry’s approach to traditional wireless, wireline, and service silos. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Standardization programs must broaden their efforts from a technology or service specific (vertical) approach to that of a comprehensive holistic end-to-end (horizontal) standpoint. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>There is no clear mechanism to ensure that service interaction can be effectively managed across service types or service domains (e.g., a combined Multimedia Sub-system (IMS) + Web Services architecture). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>ATIS is well-positioned to demonstrate solid leadership in the area of convergence. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Recommendations outlined in the report are now being implemented within ATIS committees. </li></ul>
