  • StandardsWhat is a standard?Requirements of userActual requirement for the intended purposeQualityQuantitySafety & SecurityIs cost the decisive factor?Do we bother about quality?Quality is commensurate with costBangalore, India, 17-18 December 2012*

  • Need for StandardsEnsure conformance to desired requirementsEnsure qualityEnsure Repeatability forManufacturerUserNo compromise, even unknowingly or unwittingly, withPersonal safetyPersonal securityPocketBangalore, India, 17-18 December 2012*

  • TelecomTwo-way communicationAnyoneAnytimeAnywhereAny ScreenPredefined protocols essential for every deviceBangalore, India, 17-18 December 2012*

  • Necessity of standards for telecom devices?Can never be a stand-alone deviceHave to interwork with other devicesMust follow pre-defined protocols for any service or applicationConformance for PerformanceInteroperabilityEMI/EMC/EMFSafetySecurityHealthNo necessity of legislation, as standardisation is the only way to ensure performanceBangalore, India, 17-18 December 2012*

  • Standardisation in IndiaCreation of National StandardsHarmonisation of International StandardsBureau of Indian Standards (BIS)All products, except telecomTelecom Engineering Centre (TEC)All telecom productsFormulates technical requirementsTests and certifies telecom products, interfaces, and networksTelecom arm of DoTRepresents Government of India in international telecom bodiesBangalore, India, 17-18 December 2012*

  • Application of Standards in IndiaNo mandatory checks for conformance to standardsNo mandatory certification before induction in telecom networkProducts may not conform to all the desired specificationsMay not interwork properlyMay cause harm to other equipment or userStandardisation promotes, and does not hinder development in telecomMarket is mature nowBangalore, India, 17-18 December 2012*

  • Way ForwardShift focus from urban to ruralBottoms-up approachC-DoT RAX ModelAspirations will guide the developmentsRural-centricNetwork, Equipment, Services, Content, User InterfacesInnovate Ingenuous designs, conform to standardsNew services, applications, protocolsAffordabilityEnergy/power, environmentCapacity buildingSet-up labs for development and testing of productsTrain man-powerBangalore, India, 17-18 December 2012*

  • Mandatory CertificationAll telecom equipment to be tested and certified before induction in Indian telecom networkMinimum parameters to be tested conformance to standards, user and network safety, and integrityChanges in Telegraph Rules and Licenses to implement the schemeTesting by Conformance Assessment Bodies (CAB)Certification by Certification Body (CB) TECUse of Certifying LogoSurveillanceBangalore, India, 17-18 December 2012*

  • Way Forward forDevelopment of StandardsMotivate stakeholders (R&D centres, manufacturers, service providers, academia, users, etc.) to collaborate and channelize R&D activities for development of standards/IPRs for new products and servicesInvolve all academia and R&D centres for telecom products and servicesMotivate stakeholders to participate in developmental process of standards in national and international forumsParticipate in National Working Group (NWG) meetings in DoT/TEC to agree upon national stance on a particular standardParticipate in International Forums, like ITU, to project national standardBangalore, India, 17-18 December 2012*

  • Establishment of SDOEstablish a national telecom Standards Development Organisation, to focus on the country-specific requirements, especially on rural networks.Draw synergy of all the stakeholders, viz., R&D centres, manufacturers, service providers, academia, users, etc. Drive consensus on the deliverablesFocus energies on specific products and services to work on, and evolveSuitable methodologies for transfer-of-technology, manufacturing and commercialisation thereofSuitable mechanism for handling IPRs, without stifling the growthNew standards, national requirements, etc.

  • Development of new Standards and ProductsResearch on a new product or service, based on new specificationsDevelop prototypeLab testing for conformance, performance, interoperability, etc.Field trial and validationFile IPRValidate the new specifications as new standards TECGenerate revenue for the survival of entire processManufacturingCommercialisationDeploymentBangalore, India, 17-18 December 2012*

  • Conclusions & RecommendationsBridge Standardisation GapEnforce conformance to all standardsEnhance R&D and ManufacturingDraw synergy of all stakeholders in development and formulation of standards through national telecom SDORegularly participate and take proactive stance in international forums to project national perspectiveBangalore, India, 17-18 December 2012*
