SOPHIA-ANTIPOLIS, France -- A technical workshop to identify potential relationships and to discuss common activities on IP based Multimedia Services (IMS) between 3rd Generation mobile standardization and the next generation fixed network standards makers attracted some ninety (90) engineers to the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI), in Sophia Antipolis, France.

One of the objectives of the workshop, jointly chaired by Alain Le Roux - ETSI TISPAN Chair and Magnus Olsson - 3GPP SA2 Chair, was to review high level requirements to accommodate xDSL Access to IMS service capabilities and to discuss potential relationships and possible collaboration arrangements between the Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) and ETSI Technical Committee TISPAN.

On the technical side, discussions have been started and will continue on a new mailing list that will be open to all parties, including other standards developing organisations. The mailing list will focus on the possibility of incorporating the needs of the fixed network in to the core 3GPP IMS specifications.
