The International Packet Communications Consortium (IPCC) said today that it has established a new working group to define the reference architectures that will provide feature transparency and seamless mobility across wireline and wireless networks.
The organization made the announcement at the CompTel/ASCENT Convention & Expo in New Orleans.
The working group was founded by the following IPCC members: Alcatel, Brooktrout, Cisco Systems Inc., Convedia, eLEC, NexTel, Sonus, Tekelec, Time Warner Telecom, and UTStarcom.
“We are at an inflection point in our industry as various packet wireline and wireless networks are converging,” says Michael Khalilian, IPCC chairman and president. “Together with new revenue opportunities, this creates a strong need to address critical technical and business issues. We established this working group to foster industry collaboration in order to find the best solutions in these critical areas in the least amount of time.”
