Body
Dear Madam, Dear Sir,

We are pleased to inform you of a relatively new Industry Specification Group
on Next Generation Protocols, created in December 2015.
The ETSI Next Generations Protocols (NGP) ISG appreciates how the TCP/IP
protocol suite has enabled the evolution of connected computing and many other
developments since its invention during the 1970’s. We aim to gather opinions
on how we can build on this momentum by evolving communications and networking
protocols to provide the scale, security, mobility and ease of deployment
required for the connected society of the 21st century.

The objectives of ISG NGP are deliberately quite broad as we feel a holistic
review of functionality is required and new approaches will be necessary. Key
issues to be studied include; addressing, security, identity and
authentication, mobility along with requirements from Internet of Things,
video and content distribution, ultra-low latency use cases, network
operation, eCommerce and the need for increased energy efficiency within the
ICT sector.

We invite any interested parties from your ISG to follow our progress via the
ETSI portal, mailing lists or attendance at our ISG meetings. Participation in
the ISG NGP is subject to signature of an ISG NGP agreement you can find at:
https://portal.etsi.org/tb.aspx?tbid=844&SubTB=844 Explanation about those
agreements is also available from the same location.

In particular, in advance of the next ETSI NGP Face-to-Face meeting on 26th
July 2016, we would appreciate input from the IAB and/or IETF on our current
white paper, “ETSI White Paper – Market Drivers and Key Scenarios.” A copy is
attached for reference and we would be grateful if you could provide a
response via David Lake, dlake@cisco.com who will then arrange for the input
to be presented at the forthcoming meeting.

For further information please consult:
https://portal.etsi.org/tb.aspx?tbid=844&SubTB=844 else please do not hesitate
contacting our ISG NGP Support: Emmanuelle Chaulot-Talmon

In addition, I would be pleased to speak with you and/or your group by phone
or in person to explain further what we are doing and the progress we’ve made
thus far.

Best regards,
Andy Sutton
ETSI ISG NGP Chairman
