The 8th edition of Trends in Telecommunication Reform will examine the regulatory challenges and opportunities of Next-Generation Networks (NGN). This report is designed to provide regulators and policy makers with an understanding of the emerging NGN world, with a special focus on developing countries. It will examine NGN technologies and their regulatory implications, fixed mobile convergence (FMC), universal access, interconnection-both domestic and international, consumer protection and an NGN enabling environment.



‎Enabling environment for NGN

Today, the lines between traditional telecommunication services are blurred due to convergence in the Information Communication Technology (ICT) sector. The move to Next-Generation Networking (NGN) constitutes the latest step on the road to convergence of the ICT sector, as it will essentially enable consumers to receive a wide range of services all over a single, all Internet Protocol (IP)-based network.
