ETSI releases key next generation network standards

By
The European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) will officially launch, on 5 December, a comprehensive set of set of standards for the operation of next generation networks.

There are 20 separate specifications developed by the ETSI TISPAN technical committee since September 2003. They will be the core standards underpinning Telstra's next generation network evolution announced last week.

According to ETSI, "Next Generation Networks will offer the platform for convergence between the traditional public switched telephone networks (PSTNs) and the new IP-based data networks. The operators, vendors and government representatives driving this standardisation work believe harmonised NGNs are the way forward to improve the delivery of current network services and enable the rapid deployment of innovative new IP based services to the market place."

According to ETSI, "The high level of participation in TISPAN meetings, which generally attract representatives from over 45 telecommunications companies, illustrates industry's commitment to making the open standards that benefit the entire sector. It is proof also that it is only with a clearly defined set of detailed technical standards that complex, multi-vendor networks will be able to coexist and interoperate successfully."

Alain le Roux, Chairman of the ETSI TISPAN said: "ETSI TISPAN was set-up with the objective of developing a first package of implementable NGN specifications within two years. Here we are after 26 months of intense activity, [at the TISPAN#9 meeting] we will complete and deliver the TISPAN NGN Release 1 specifications that our industry is eagerly waiting for, to turn NGN into reality."

The TISPAN NGN definition of Release 1 is available here.
