ETSI New Internet Forum

ETSI and the NGP ISG are pleased to invite you to the ETSI New Internet Forum taking place on 12 October 2018 in the Hague (NL) in co-location with SDN NFV World Congress.

The purpose of the ETSI NGP ISG (Industry Specification Group on Next Generation Protocols) is to review the future landscape of Internet Protocols, and network architectures, analyze their applicability to future use cases, identify and document future requirements and trigger coordinated follow up activities. The driving vision is a much more efficient system that is far more responsive to its users.

The ETSI New Internet Forum is intended to provide an open platform for users and operators to explore technical issues with the current network technologies and the capabilities of new protocols, while constructing a more powerful and intelligent network that can support more future application scenarios.

Emerging technology requirements from different market segments, such as Holography, industrial networks, vehicular networks, IoT, and 5G networks and services, offer initial scenarios where the next generation protocols should significantly simplify solutions.

How you may benefit

  • Meet the industry leaders and experts
  • Exchange and expand your own knowledge on next generation protocols
  • Develop a clearer understanding of the innovation in technology and applications
  • Expand the connection with potential various partners
  • Improve the influence in vertical industry

Target Audience

The event will be of particular interest to technologists, engineers, researchers in digital society who can provide inputs to new IP.

The event audience from communications field such as below will particularly find it interesting:

  • Operators, looking for ‘network technologies’ to help them solve limitations of current Internet – complexity, security, IoT, scale better integration of fixed and mobile infrastructures.
  • Operators looking for new vertical solutions (such as edge services, vehicle to infrastructure, smart-cities and other smart society scenarios).
  • Vendors, interested in innovation and collaboration on new packet forwarding, processing, scheduling technologies. (e.g protocols, NPUs, memories).
  • Researchers, keen on sharing their ideas – from research to commercial landscape on the topics of Internet architecture, protocols (e.g. Future Internet architectures)
  • Application and content providers, who generate content that need new communication mechanisms (such as live or connected AR/VR).

09:00  Opening Remarks

  • John Grant - ETSI NGP ISG Chair, UK
  • Richard Li (ETSI NGP Vice Chair, Huawei US)

09:10 Session 1: Network Challenges and Requirements for Future Applications
Chaired by John Grant, ETSI NGP ISG, BSI

New applications (Vehicular networks, tactile networks, industrial networks, holography, remote surgery, etc.) propose many challenges and requirements to the network, such as massive connections, ultra-high bandwidth, deterministic, ultra-low latency, inherent security, etc.
