Liaisons referring to this one Liaison Statement to ETSI NGP ISP
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: 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, who will then arrange for the input to be
presented at the forthcoming meeting.

For further information please consult: 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

Best regards,
Andy Sutton
