Tuesday 22 August, 2006 Chair: Prof dr E Dommering


Introduction: Professor Erik Bohlin

Chair of ITS


Key note speech: Professor Dr. J. Arnbak



Key note speech: Professor Dr. E. Huizer "The invisible infrastructure"



Keynote Prof. dr. J. Arnbak

Europe ’s present regulatory framework for electronic communications is being replaced by new rules and regulations, expected to enter into
force in EU member states by 2008-9.
After the cumulative previous experiences with (i) the regulatory generations of Open Network Provision (ONP) from 1990 until 2003,
followed by (ii) the New Regulatory Framework (NRF) in force since 2003, discussion about the next regulatory package (iii) is now starting.
Will this package be lighter on ex-ante regulation than the NRF, as so vigorously advocated by many incumbent operators in legacy markets?
And should the many “new” entrants, still relying on carrier (pre-) selection in the circuit-switched narrowband networks of incumbents,
perhaps start to look for more viable business propositions for the longer term?

Faster and more effective institutional arrangements may also prove valuable in the area of complaints and appeals about a decision by a
National Regulatory Authority (NRA).
Expert complaints commissions, entitled to hear appeals of decisions by NRAs, are in place in only very few EU member states. In the
many EU countries with lengthy procedures for judicial reviews of NRA decisions, judges might perhaps do more to learn from best
practices of their colleagues in other countries. In short, there is a need for more international consolidation of experiences and best practices,
which might be satisfied without necessarily having to go all the way to the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg.

The presentation and full paper will attempt to describe modes of regulatory and appeals procedures that could deliver results in faster,
less bureaucratic ways than encountered in most EU member states at present. This would benefit not only the electronic communications
sector itself, but also its many suppliers and – not in the last place - both professional
users and private consumers.

Prof dr. J. Arnbak is professor at Delft University of Technology. From 1997-2005 he was the Chair of Onafhankelijke Post en Telecommunicatie
Autoriteit (OPTA, The Dutch Post and Telecom Regulator). From 2002-200 he was Chairman of the European Regulators Group (ERG).

Keynote Prof dr. E. Huizer

The invisible infrastructure

Over the next few years the demand for bandwidth will keep increasing to a level that can only be supported by optical infrastructures.
Laptops will have 10Gbit/s interfaces.
Extrapolating the success of YouTube the amount of Video streams in the Internet at any point in time will probably reach 600 Gbps.

There are technological developments to address this demand, such as Lambda grids (lightpaths, bandwidth on demand) Link capacity
Adjustment scheme (LCAS) and Ethernet over SONET/SDH.
But there will also be operational policy developments that will affect traffic behavior for certain applications and services.
This affects the neutrality of the Net.
We will briefly look into the technological developments and discuss operational consequences.

Prof dr. E. Huizer is Director Strategy, innovation and Business Development with NOB Cross Media Facilities.
Huizer is also a part-time professor Internet Applications at University of Utrecht. One of the topics Huizer is currently involved
in is the introduction of HDTV in the Netherlands

Concluding remarks: Professor  R. Wagenaar



Next Generation Infrastructures
Venturing beyond IT and telecommunications infrastructure: the challenge of cross-sectoral learning.

In comparison with the information and telecommunications sector where technology and infrastructures leap through a fast succession of innovation cycles,
other infrastructure industries may seem far less turbulent. However, in view of their capital intensity and embeddedness in the social, physical and economic
structure, many infrastructure systems other than IT and telecommunications can be considered to be in a similar state of turbulent transition, as they are
coping with urgent innovation demands and coping with a variety of new challenges emerging from technological and institutional innovation. To what extent
can they learn from the IT and telecoms experience? And to what extent may the IT and telecoms sector benefit from lessons learned and being learned in
other infrastructure sectors? This paper will explore analogies and interactions between different infrastructures and illustrate the necessity of cross-sectoral
knowledge development and learning.

Prof dr M. Weijnen is professor of energy and process systems engineering at the Faculty of Technology, Policy and Management, Delft University of Technology.
She is the founding and scientific director of the TU Delft interfaculty research center for Design and Management of Infrastructures.

Keynote Professor A. Renda

NGNs, digital platforms and next generation regulation: the post-Lisbon agenda

Already in 2006, it is fair to conclude that Europe has missed its ambitious goal to become “the most competitive and dynamic knowledge based economy by 2010”, set in Lisbon in 2000. Faced with such disappointing evidence, the Commission has presented its recipe for the future regulation of e-communications in June 2006. However, the new rules appear too shy and sometimes misplaced. In addition, they will not enter into force before 2010 – a time in which the European ICT sector will look quite different from what it is today. This is why Europe needs a post-Lisbon agenda. The main pillars of this agenda should be the economics of multi-sided digital platforms, the update of regulatory and competition policy tools applied by NRAs, the encouragement of investments in NGNs, the adoption of a layered approach to regulation, the development of a clear policy on DRM and interoperability, and more generally the removal of all obstacles that hamper the take-up of new digital platforms and the development of inter-platform competition to the long-term benefit of consumers.

Professor Renda is teaching economics at LUISS in Rome, Italy , and works as a Senior Researcher at the Centre for European Policy Studies in Bruxelles.
