2009 Global Network Interconnectivity (GNI) Symposium
Telecommunications technologies and Internet services are experiencing unprecedented growth. Technological advances together with the growing scale of deployments are driving rapid change in the telecommunications arena. All these factors contribute to the push towards convergence on the network core. Next generation networks, programmable networks, and the converged core opens up and provides new network architectures and new converged service opportunities. The Global Network Interconnectivity (GNI) Project was established at the University of Otago in 2006 to develop expertise, provide knowledge sharing and conduct activities supporting new ICT technologies that contribute to telecommunications, multimedia, and information systems convergence. The aim of the GNI Symposium was to bring together academic and industry leaders for one day to discuss current and future issues relating to convergence in the ICT and Telecommunications arena. This report provides a summary of the day’s presentations and discussion sessions.
