  • New ICT Operator Licensing Regime – NICTA
    • Horizontal and technology neutral
  • New ICT Radiocoomunications Licenses – NICTA

ict standardization challenges within
ICT Standardization Challenges – Within

Methodologies of adopting standards.

Maintaining and updating standards/ document archive.

Standard format for drafting of respective standards and codes

Audits of technical standards

Criteria & procedures for discontinuing legacy standards

Migration path from legacy systems to newer technologies

Developing technical codes and standards for emerging technologies. e.g., GPRS & 3G, IMT 2000, BGAN, HSDPA, etc…

ict standardization challenges with industry
ICT Standardization Challenges – With Industry

Untimely feedback/ comments from draft public consultation technical standard and code papers

Sometimes lack of compliance to technical ICT standards

Requires wider consultation and collaboration with ICT industry

Needs adequate human capacity in standardization arena

Strengthening of partnership with other National Standard agencies. E.g. NISIT

Isolated framework for collaboration/ partnership with all sector of economy.

ict standardization challenges international
ICT Standardization Challenges – International
  • Robust engagement with vendors to obtain industry standards system.
  • MRA preparation/requirement for phase 1
    • The build up of past events
      • 2000 – APEC MRA office set up within PANGTEL
      • 2001-2004 – Ground work for PHASE 1 including collation and formulation of technical standards and TA specifications

ICT Standardization Challenges – International (cont..)
  • The build up of past events (cont..)
    • 2005 – 2007 – Project became stagnant reason being;
      • Other higher priority regulatory functions eroded management will to pursue it further
      • There was no push from Industry where they could have benefitted from quicker transfer of Telecom technology
    • 2008 – As a means to revive and pursue it again, it was adopted into the TAPG and received management endorsement but went stagnant again for same reason.
way forward opportunities
Way Forward – Opportunities
  • National ICT regulation and licensing is becoming consistent with the current state of ICT: CONVERGENCE
  • Build human capacity to handle the dynamic ICT sector and standardization
  • Collaboration and partnership between all stake holders (operators/service providers, customers, regulator)
  • Participate in standards and other working group of ITU and Regional ICT Standardization Committee
conclusion
Conclusion
  • NICTA needs to develop clear strategies, action plans and an implementation ICT Standardization framework to suit the new ICT Licencing Regime
  • We are pleased to announce our official engagement with TTA on ICT Standardization Consultation & Collaboration Program for this year…
