Future Networks: Objectives and Design Goals
|Publication Date:||1 May 2011|
This Recommendation describes objectives and design goals for future networks (FNs). The scope of this Recommendation covers:
• Fundamental issues to which insufficient attention was paid in designing current networks, and which are recommended to be the objectives of future networks (FNs)
• High-level capabilities and characteristics that are recommended to be supported by future networks (FNs)
• Target timeframe for future networks (FNs).
Ideas and research topics of future networks (FNs) that are important and may be relevant to future ITU-T standardization are included in Appendix I.
