The present writing various types of ETSI criteria, required for a telecommunication regulatory body to improve the cost-effective QoS of telecom services to the end-users. Various technical, economical and political challenges are to be faced by the FGI/NGI when the service delivery is to be made in an integrated environment with ISP, PSTN/ISDN and cellular Networks. NGI deployment presents a range of challenges to regulators due to implications of technical differences between Circuit-Switched (CS) and Packet-Switched (PS) transmission. Nowadays, various tools and equipment used in telecom sectors are integrated with varied technical feature, arising from the network structure and design aspects as per requirements of traffic modeling and routing. These will warrant the use of appropriate network design and dimensioning algorithms by the telecom regulatory bodies to play as the level player agent in the market. They are to have also the knowledge of cost and pricing models for the techno-economical evaluation of the interconnection scenarios.
