The authors propose for the new document a narrow scope on methods to achieve the socio-economic design goals and objectives outlined in Y.3001 – “Economic incentives” (Section 8.7 in Y.3001) and “Social and economic awareness” (Section 7.4), respectively. Consequently, the new document is proposed to be entitled “Methods to Achieve Socio-Economic Design Goals and Objectives for Future Networks”. As a suited method to be covered the authors propose to include the tussle analysis method .
The discussion during the SG13 meeting revealed that the interest level in SG13 is high. Furthermore, the need for such a document was accepted, the new documented was opened as Y.FNsocioeconomic, and the document’s scope was agreed upon as follows:
“This Recommendation lists methods to achieve socio-economic design goals and objectives for Future Networks (FNs). When a candidate FN technology is provided, the methods listed provides a structured manner
· to analyze the socio-economic effect of the technology,
· to find relevant stakeholders,
· to identify tussles/conflicts between them,
· to help assess the expected level of achievement of a technology,
and help design/select appropriate technology for Future Networks.”Y.FNsocioeconomic will see the tussle analysis method being covered. Finally, the request was issued to include a number of SG13-external experts on this field, to ensure the broadest possible background and expertise to be available for the work on such a document.
