  1. Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions (ATIS)Update Art Reilly ATIS Head of Delegation Global Standards Collaboration (GSC) GSC-15

  2. ATIS identifies and addresses the industry’s and its members’ market-driven, business priorities. Led by its blue-ribbon Board of Directors, its Technology and Operations Council of CTOs, and its CIO Council of exclusively operators. This leadership structure acknowledges the integration of network and IT by companies and as it is occurring in the marketplace. ATIS’ objective is to develop technical and operational solutions – standards and beyond – business use cases, best practices, requirements, road maps, definitions, interoperability tests, market analyses, policy/technology positions, etc. Highlight of Current ATIS Activities

  3. Recently enhanced the processes of the TOPS Council and the CIO Council to identify and define priorities at the “intersection” of business and technology – including priorities impactful for the next year, as well as longer term (3 to 5 years). Current emphasis on being strategic, early, and fast – expediting the definition and study of a priority as well as the delivery of the output in a new landscape process (higher importance on business value, definition, and analysis, first steps “lighter” on standardization needs). Define industry strategic direction and position – decoupled from looking at just standards needs – a more expansive view. Standards remain a key part of the overall output, but are recognized as now not the only needed output. Highlight of 2010 ATIS Activities

  4. Two priorities are currently in Landscape process: Network Optimization and Cloud Computing/Services with objective to complete work in 4 to 6 weeks. Network Optimization definition and usage case scenarios completed in one month – Defined as dynamic and automated changes in network behavior (how traffic is routed, policed, shaped, prioritized, optimized, and manages resources) Purpose of optimization: achieve increased network performance, application performance, subscriber performance Now forming Focus Group for deeper study Highlight of 2010 ATIS Activities

  5. Cloud Computing/Services An integrated study of the network issues associated with cloud computing/services in collaboration with the ATIS CIO Council and IT aspects of Cloud Services. Assessment will include an evaluation of cloud services from a service provider business perspective – utilization of the SPI model (Software as a Service, Platform as a Service, and Infrastructure as a Service) as both a product to end-users and also used internally to streamline operations. Development of a “Common Telco Framework for Cloud” that will be use case driven and representative of the delivery of both business and IT Services from the network and the cloud, such as media rich content, mobile cloud services, telco API’s, and others. Other Priorities in Cue for Landscaping: Network Management; Identity Management; Machine-2-Machine; Cyber Security; The Networked Car; Smart Grid; Healthcare, etc. Highlight of Current ATIS Activities

  6. Completed Policy Management Focus Group Report Current policy standards have independent, divergent approaches for fixed access, mobile access, transport, border control and home networking – creates CAPEX and OPEX implications and impedes service velocity. Created operator-driven use cases to define standards requirements – coordinating work into 3GPP now already underway. Methodology focused on operator-proposed, end-user driven use cases to derive business requirements. Business requirements drove standards analysis and specific standards input. Highlight of 2010 ATIS Activities

  7. Consolidation and Convergence Task Force assessing the extent and complexity of the issues surrounding facilities consolidation; convergence, interconnection/interoperability, legacy networks, emerging technologies, business considerations, regulatory constraints, standards development, environmental sustainability. Output will be recommendations to achieve consolidation and convergence. IPv6 IPv6 Task Force again active to address impending exhaust including implementation issues. Developed Readiness Plan for IPv6 Transition (June 2008). ATIS IPv6 Task Force Report on Transition Challenges (July 2007). ATIS IPv6 Task Force Report and Recommendations on IPv6 Transition (May 2006). Highlight of 2010 ATIS Activities

  8. The pace of innovation, relevance, speed of work, and focus on output that delivers business value and impact is more important than it has ever been to ATIS members. Standards are an important piece of the value proposition, but not the only piece. Accelerated development cycles of needed standards to increase cost savings and efficiencies are essential. The integration of network and IT are more important and will enable companies to provide services with an interoperable, media-rich, service-oriented network. “Verticals” will be in play – Smart Grid, Telehealth, etc. Strategic Direction

  9. The standards landscape is shifting: greater focus on and value received from “standards for business sake.” Reset resource expectations; and contribution-driven models are being challenged, becoming more small-group, problem solving. Reinvent how we work – approaches, studies, tools, etc. Reshape and rethink about the “new networks” – many new forces in play. Traditional telephone – now media and entertainment IPTV, 3D TV, “TV Everywhere” and Holography IMS, Web 3.0 and IPv6 Broadband Everywhere Mobility is the future – new devices, services, and capabilities Challenges

  10. Think non-traditionally about who to engage (applications developers, verticals like Smart Grid, etc.) and new models on how to do the work. Embrace the business value that ATIS members need as defined by its Board, the CTOs, and the CIOs. Move swiftly to identify and address emerging priorities, being flexible and nimble in how it is done. Accept that now is very different than a year ago – and the future will be vastly different.
