ETSI Next Generation Protocols Group

       Releases First Specification

       Scenarios for a 21st Century Internet

       On 10 October 2016, the ETSI Industry   GS NGP 001 scenarios comprise     standards bodies (e.g. 3GPP, ETSI, IEEE,
       Specification Group on Next Generation   addressing, security, mobility, context-  IETF, ITU-T) to shape their protocol
       Protocols (NGP ISG) announced the    awareness, performance improvement   evolution for 5G systems and 21st
       release of its first specifications, GS   and content enablement as well as   century networking technology so as
