SYSTEMS BEYOND 3G: SOME
DRIVERS

Manufacturers:

Looking for innovative system concepts
allowing introduction of new, mass market equipment;

Operators:

interest in introduction of new services still
without having to throw away existing infrastructures and
maximising efficiency in the use of their networks;

Users:

affordable new services without access restrictions;

Challenge:

introduction of innovative systems and
services with backwards compatibility;

Requirement:

proliferation of wireless devices implies
optimised use of spectrum: the right service should use
the right access network in the right frequency band.

In the context of the e
-
Europe 2005 Action Plan and the
Lisbon Strategy 2010:


Implementation of a widely available broadband
infrastructure is probably the key technology challenge for
the Information Society and telecommunications in Europe,
over the next 5

10 years.



IST WP2003

4:
2.3.1.3 Broadband for All:


Objective: To develop the network technologies and
architectures allowing a generalised availability of broadband
access to European users, including those in less developed
regions. This is a key enabler to the wider deployment of the
information and knowledge
-
based society and economy.

SA Research Objectives:

Are framed in a system context and are required to address the
technological breakthroughs in support of the socio
-
economic evolution
towards availability of low cost and generalised broadband access. This
should therefore lead to:


-

Optimized access technologies, as a function of the operating
environment, at affordable price allowing for a generalized introduction of
broadband services in Europe and in less developed regions;

-

Technologies allowing the access portion of the next generation network
to match the evolution of the core network, in terms of capacity,
functionality and Quality of Service available to the end users;

-

A European consolidated approach regarding regulatory aspects, and
for standardized solutions allowing the identification of best practice, and
introduction of low cost end user and access network equipment;


NB:The views expressed herein are those of the authors and are not necessarily those of the European Commission

Technology Focus (1)


Low cost access network equipment, for a range of
technologies optimised as a function of the operating
environment, including optical fibre, fixed wireless

access, interactive broadcasting, satellite access, xDSL and
power line networks.



New concepts for network management , control and
protocols, to lower the operational costs, provide enhanced
intelligence and functionality in the access network for
delivery of new services, and end
-
to
-
end network
connectivity.


NB:The views expressed herein are those of the authors and are not necessarily those of the European Commission

Technology Focus (2)



Multi
-
service capability, with a single access network
physical infrastructure shared by multiple services allowing a
reduction in capital and operational expenditures for
installation and maintenance. It includes end to end IPv6
capabilities;




Increased bandwidth capacity, in the access network as
well as in the underlying optical core/metro network
(including in particular optical burst and packet switching),
commensurate with the expected evolution in user
requirements and Internet
-
related services.

NB:The views expressed herein are those of the authors and are not necessarily those of the European Commission

CONCLUSION


Federating RTD work in the area of future communications
networks is crucial to develop a European position in the
world scene;


For example, systems beyond 3G are considered as a key
technological challenge for Europe;


Partnership beyond Europe will be an asset;


The upcoming FP6 opens a range of opportunities for
collaborative work in an area with an already established
collaboration “culture”;


With a 10 years time frame perspective to deploy new
communication systems, the time is right to start ambitious
EU initiatives in this field;
