Telcordia Announces Extension of Generic Requirements Program to Wireless Network Infrastructure

Technology Forum to Create Industry Specifications for Wireless Outside Plant Network Elements; Soliciting Global Service Providers & Equipment Vendors to Participate

PISCATAWAY, N.J., Nov. 15, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Telcordia, a global leader in the development of IP, wireline, and mobile telecommunications software and services, announced today the extension of its Generic Requirements (GR) program to wireless network infrastructure, beginning with requirements for wireless outside plant (OSP) network elements. Written collaboratively with global communications service providers (CSPs) and equipment vendors, GR documents provide generic criteria for telecommunications equipment and systems that consider a wide variety of factors, including interoperability, network integrity, expressed needs from those CSPs and vendors, and other types of input.

"For two decades, Telcordia has been a trusted source for providing industry specifications for network elements that help streamline development and procurement cycles across the full spectrum of a communications infrastructure," said Zach Gilstein, Vice President, Service Assurance, Telcordia. "Driven by demand from our major customers, this extension of our GR program will help wireless operators and vendors benefit from our experience in defining common industry needs."

According to Gilstein, as traditional fixed line and wireless markets converge, there are opportunities for greater speed and efficiency by standardizing requirements to fit the distinct and specific needs of today's wireless industry. This GR will help raise the performance and reliability of the wireless network infrastructure to support the exponential growth in data traffic from wireless customers, which is driving the need to provide much higher bandwidth in the terrestrial backhaul network.

"CSPs can leverage Telcordia GRs to qualify the features, functions and performance characteristics of the various network infrastructure products that they purchase to help ensure that they deploy only solutions that will meet the network integrity demands of the convergent network. Similarly, equipment vendors can leverage those same requirements to perform targeted product development to build the necessary features and capabilities into their products and solutions," Gilstein added.

Work is already underway on the "GR-3171: Wireless OSP Network Element Requirements" document, as Telcordia solicits CSPs and equipment vendors to participate in a technology forum that will evaluate, define and record the requirements criteria. Interested parties should contact Ernie Gallo, Project Manager, at [email protected]

Besides the wireless OSP document, the list of GRs that Telcordia plans to update or develop in 2011 can be found at http://www.telcordia.com/services/genericreq/2011grmatrix_topic.pdf.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people.

Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
