ICT R&D and standards: From experience to prospects

ICT R&D and standards: From experience to prospects Bernard BARANI EC INFSO D Directorate Network and Communication Technologies STANDARDS AND INTEROPERABILITY IN ICT ETPs ETSI, 23-24 October 2006 - Sophia Antipolis - France The Importance of Standardisation From a policy perspective Support Internal Market and deployment of pan EU systems/services; Open standards facilitate competition and consumer protection; Promote global solutions, and support emergence of EU positions on global issues; From a research perspective a powerful consensus making instrument; an instrument to catalyse exploitation of research results; an efficient co-operation platform with other regions of the world; A natural link to research for those issue that are system oriented From the inception of the Framework Programme in the 80s, ICT R&D has been systematically encouraged to generate standardisation spinn offs, especially in the telecom, broadcasting, and audio visual domains, mainly through ETSI, DVB and MPEG groups. EU R&D: Broadband OFDM on copper pair,Technologies ADSL, then VDSL: RACE, ACTS ADSL deployment success worldwide, EU companies at the forefront; BRAN, HiperLan, HiperMAN: RACE, ACTS WiFi and WiMax deployments/prospects; Fiber to the Cabinet/curb//Home: from RACE to IST FP6 prospects for FTTH are now becoming real, European deployment initiatives and clarification of regulatory regime 3G/UMTS: RACE, ACTS EU success at standardisation level; Y2005: significant take off of UMTS world-wide, exceeding EV-DO. Strong position of EU industry leveraging the

GSM expertise B3G/4G: ACTS, IST FP5, IST FP6 issue still developing, EU FP actions support partnership with Asia (CJK, mITF, FuTURE, NGMC) Broadband Satellite: ACTS, IST FP5, IST FP6 High expectations, high investments, still niche markets. Availability of DVB-RCS and DVB S2 standard DTV-HDTV: from RACE to IST FP5 world-wide success of DVB standard; promising prospects for EU led technology like MPEG4 for HDTV; MHP gaining momentum. Strong EU industrial leaders. Mobile TV, DVB-H: from ACTS to IST FP6 promising technology developed in the EU, need to progress on the regulatory/spectrum front. PLC: IST FP6 consolidated EU expertise, even if PLC at the access level may be less prominent UWB: IST FP5, FP6 better positioning of EU industry and regulatory regime being clarified Resulting landscape Competition bearing fruits. 15% (of EU population) penetration.

It cuts across the 3 pillars (Information space, Innovation, Inclusion); In other regions of the world, this trend has also been recognised as a driver for R&D policies (839 initiative of Korea, u_Japan) - Cross cutting issues become more systematic; - Impact on the siloed networks, and on the siloed standards Pervasive Networking: a sample of R&D Technological Drivers Proliferation of connected devices, from passive RFID to active sensors; Edge networking, context awareness, event filtering, event management through distributed middleware; Service architectures, from syntactic description and static

Implications and Challenges Convergence and diversity of players brings about different approaches to standard related issues : Classical FRAND IPR model, with patent royalties considered as the fair remuneration of research. Model getting increasingly complex, due to emergence of myriad of players and possible instability;

Emergence of new models, e.g OSS model or royalty free models; consumer interests (open standards), vs Differentiations (close business models?); Time to market and economic efficiency (standards e.g. de facto, not necessarily open) Importance of Software, from system standard to interface standard Is the classical model of collaborative R&D feeding industrial consensus and standards still appropriate? How can converged platforms with varying srd models be sustainable? How to best couple R&D with standardisation? Can the Platforms help? The Changing environment - From a mainly Internal market driven perspective (EU wide harmonisation) la GSM with single std approach - Towards a market driven pro competitive environment where several standards may co-exist. - Whist there is a tendency to oppose these approaches, they are not necessarily exclusive: .It is often asked whether, on balance, standardization acts more to constrain innovation or to enable innovation. From our perspective these two activities are inextricably linked. Standardization does constrain activities but in doing so creates an infrastructure for subsequent innovation. Well-designed standards should be able to reduce undesirable outcomes. Moreover, standardization is not just about producing norms for given technologies in given markets. Standardization helps to credibility, focus and critical mass in markets for new technologies.(Manchester Business School, report for DTI). - Deployment of pan EU widely adopted standards remains an option, e.g. mobile TV on-going debate; - In this case, a co-ordinated approach of industry towards the regulator is key (see creation of EMBC). Role for Platforms? Standards, R&D and International Co-operation IST FP6: a significant effort has been devoted to cooperation with third countries; In standard related areas, Asia and South America have received particular attention (e.g IST call 6); Several approaches to standards co-operation: ex ante (std not yet existing), ex post (existing standard);

Varying levels of results and experiences; A solid approach to International co-operation and standards is required for IST FP7. ETP contribution in this field would be very desirable.

In support of industry-led efforts, the EU and the Member States should maintain a policy priority for interoperability along other key objectives such as innovation and security, support industry-led standardisation and promote the widespread adoption of standards in products and service implementations. Policy measures should allow for temporal and business considerations in a competitive marketplace and may include, as appropriate, active dialogue with industry on challenges in formation of value networks and other potential barriers to implementation of interoperability as well as maintaining an agenda of priority identification, target-setting and monitored progress of interoperability in respect of an evolving priority list of functional digital enablers of ICT innovation and uptake. ).
