TRAI postpones NGN seminar to August 25-26


The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has
postponed its seminar on Next Generation Network – Implementation &
Implications to 25th and 26th August, 2011.


The seminar in New Delhi would explore technical and
regulatory issues governing migration from legacy to the Next Generation
Networks. It would offer an opportunity to examine how these networks would
challenge the traditional methods of handling interconnections, interconnection
usage charges, quality of service, numbering and security issues.


The event will provide a platform for discussion,
collaboration and intellectual exchange of information among professionals
involved with any aspect of NGN. Experts from India and abroad would be
available to share their experience with the participants during the two days
of deliberations.


Next Generation Networks (NGNs) provide technical
foundation for Convergence providing common infrastructure to carry previously
distinct service types together with the flexibility of developing services
independently of underlying transport and control mechanisms.


These networks offer promise of immense possibilities for
the consumers, service providers, telecom equipment manufacturers and the
application developers, but at the same time they raise challenges for the
regulators and policy makers.


As technologies and business models evolve, the NGN
landscape will continue to undergo dramatic transformation. NGN is seen by many
as a new opportunity for creating jobs and wealth, and enhancing the quality of
life for both the rich and the poor.
