NEW DELHI: IP inter-connection issues including the co-existence of legacy network with IP based networks and requirement of regulatory intervention in IP based interconnection have been raised in a new consultation paper by the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India.
The paper also wants the opinion of stakeholders on interconnection requirement for application and content service providers; quality of service issues; and various other operational issues- sharing of network elements, emergency numbering etc.
The consultation paper on ‘Migration to IP based Networks’ wants stakeholders to file their views by 21 July and counter-comments by 28 July.
Traditional telecommunication systems are migrating towards more powerful and viable internet protocol based telecommunication systems. Migration to IP based network will result in co existence of legacy network along with IP based network. The new IP based network as well as its co-existence with legacy network will give rise to several operational, interconnection and quality of service issues which needs to be addressed for the successful migration to IP based networks.
