Ovum, the analyst and consulting firm, announces that with national Next Generation Network (NGN) deployments proceeding rapidly, it is time for policy makers and regulators to consider carefully how to sustain and ensure fair, open and effective competition. According to Ovum Consulting Director, CW Cheung NGNs will require regulators to shift their emphasis from promoting infrastructure based competition to enabling services based competition. The challenge to policy makers and regulators is not the design of the next generation regimes but the evolution and transition management.
Ovum research on NGN cost modelling highlights the issues faced by regulators ensuring NGN service pricing is appropriately cost based according to established regulatory costing principles. NGN regulatory costing and service pricing remains an open issue still being explored by regulators and industry.
