ITU-T NGN GSI £¨Global Standards Initiative£©Event took place in Beijing from Jan. 1st to 8th, jointly organized by CCSA and CATR of MII, with the attendance of 218 delegates from China, North America, Europe and Southeast Asia.
NGN GSI is the global standard action initiated by ITU-T, which expected to carry out research on NGN through joint study questions, with the involvement of ITU-T SG13 (Leading Group of NGN), SG11 (Leading Group of Signaling), SG19 (Leading Group of Mobile), as well as SG2 (Coding and addressing), SG12 (QoS) and SG16 (Streaming Media) in some of the questions. The delegates were divided into 13 groups to exchange viewpoints and discuss respectively about security, architecture, service and home network in terms of NGN. A number of proposals were approved at the meeting to promote the research and standardization of NGN technologies.
So far ITU-T NGN GSI has made definitions in 10 aspects, including coordination and scopes of topics, service requirements, capability and scene, architecture, QoS and network performance, control and protocols, management and OAM, security, numbering, naming and addressing, charging and accounting, interworking and evolution. Thereafter events related to NGN research were expected to take place quarterly.
It was the first time of NGN GSI event taking place in China, which attracted great attention from domestic industry, with support from China Telecom, China Mobile, China Netcom, Huawei, ZTE and Alcatel Shanghai Bell. The event in Beijing offered a great opportunity for Chinese standards research organizations, operators and manufacturers to participate the international NGN standardization activities, which was of significance for the exchanges between Chinese telecommunications industry and the counterparts of other countries.
