Betreff: Telcos@W3C breakout at TPAC


Among the breakouts that were organized last week during TPAC, I organized one around the role of operators in W3C and for the Web.

I've finished cleaning up the minutes (thanks François for scribing!):

Some of the important messages I noted during the discussion:
* operators are already important players in W3C and to become more so and get recognized as such

* there are quite a number of technologies that W3C very relevant to operators business, incl. WebRTC, Web payments, Push, WoT, etc

* W3C is one of the place where operators can embrace the de facto merge between the IT and telco industries

* browsers and Web apps would benefit from better coordination with network management to optimize both performance and network usage

Toward the end of the breakout, I polled the room to get a feeling on whether a "Telecommunications IG" in W3C would make sense; there was some push back that this would in fact entrench telcos as separate species.

I'm interested in further feedback on where best we can continue the discussion — a task force of this very Mobile IG was another option that was discussed.

Another idea that came to my mind after the breakout (when we discussed a bit further the network management questions that were raised) was to have maybe a "Network IG" rather than a more specific "Telco" IG, where we could discuss how and when Web APIs need to dive into the deeper layers of the networking stack; I also welcome feedback on that idea.
 [Gludovacz, Dieter] Another idea behind the "push back" was to not create yet another IG but handle telco related issues within an already existing very telco specific IG, e.g. the Mobile IG. I need to get used to W3C's way of organizing work, i.e. if the majority feels we need another group for it, it would be fine for me.

Thanks a lot to all who contributed to the discussions, and in particular to Mohammaed, Claudio, Bryan, Dan and Jay for their presentations.


[Gludovacz, Dieter] Thank you,
