TRAI extends deadline for comments on ‘Migration to IP-based Networks’

MUMBAI: The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has extended the deadline for giving comments on its consultation paper on ‘Migration to IP-based Networks’. Stakeholders can send in their comments by 19 August and counter-comments by 26 August.

The authority had issued the said consultation paper on 30 June.

Following are the important issues raised in the consultation paper: IP inter-connection issues, co-existence of legacy network with IP-based networks, requirement of regulatory intervention in IP-based interconnection, interconnection requirement for application and content service providers, quality of service (QoS) issues, and various other operational issues, such as sharing of network elements, emergency numbering, etc.

In its explanatory memorandum, the authority had said that 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 QoS issues which need to be addressed for the successful migration to IP-based networks.
