>after a busy week, last Friday TSAG approved the report of WP2 on
>"Work Programme" (TD 455). This report contains also the results of
>the discussion on the restructuring issues.
>For SG16, I would like to draw your attention to the following results:
>1) The new SG structure includes a SG F - "Multimedia Terminals,
>Systems and Applications" (this is agreed and not questioned
>2) SG E "Integrated broadband cable networks and television and
>sound transmission" (former SG9) remains separate, with the
>requirements to improve the coordination with other SGs, in
>particular with SG F. The provisional meeting schedule includes
>collocated meetings in November 2004 and July/August 2005 (see
> I have agreed with Richard Green/Chairman SG9, that we should
>before November 2004 already identify issues for coordination and
>initiates joint activities if needed.
>3) Q 3/16 and 5/16 have been redrafted to clarify the interface with
>SG11. Both questions remains in SG F. The new draft can be found in
> It is my understanding, that we have still not the same vision as
>SG11 concerning future work on Q 3/16, so that we will have to
>improve the coordination with them. According to the present
>provisional meeting schedule we have 3 days of overlap in November
>2004 (see TD402Rev1). We should also consider the possibility to
>hold Joint rapporteurs Meetings in future with SG11.
>4) Q K/16 remains in SG F. A good coordination with the SG J "Mobile
>Telecommunications Networks" is required.
>5) WP15/C is transferred to SG F. We are requested to work in close
>cooperation with SG G (former SG12).
>- Q I/16 remains in SG F
>- TDR/ETS basic requirements are not yet allocated, they are three options:
>1. SG M "Operational aspects of service provision, networks and performances"
>2. SG K "Security, Languages and Telecommunications Software"
>3. SG I "Architecture and convergence for NGN"
>- PCP-TDR will report to the SG responsible for the basic ETS/TDR
>We should also note, that there are still three important open issues:
>i) the future of SG2
>ii) the three options for the allocation of the TDR/ETS requirements
>iii) the components of NGN SG
>The consequence from iii) is that is is still open whether SG 11 and
>SSG will remain as stand alone SGs or not!
>From SG16 perspective, we have reached the objectives agreed upon at
>our last plenary session in January as described in our liaison to
>We should however not forget that the final decision will be made at
>WTSA-2004 in October (e.g. we already know that regional groups are
>preparing proposals to the WTSA on this restructuring issues!).
>I would like to take the opportunity to express my sincere thanks to
>those present at TSAG who have helped me in representing SG16 views
>during the meeting, in particular to Messrs Istvan Sebestyen, Dave
>Lindberg, Patrick Luthi, Leo Lehmann, Yushi Naito, Simao Campos Neto
>and Keiichi Hibi.
>Also my best thanks to Yukio Hiramatsu/Chairman SG11, Val屍ie
>Barnole/FT and Stewart Alexander/BT to have been open to a
>compromise solution on Questions 3/16 and 5/16.
