2 France Telecom R&D ITU-T SG13 futures session – July 25, D2 Global requirements to support nomadic users  An extensive range of access networks and terminals –xDSL, WLAN, 3G mobile, etc. in addition to narrow-band access –PCs, laptops, PDA, handsets, etc.  Nomadism should be supported across heterogeneous environments :  consistent service presentation and execution, whatever the access network point  enhanced services, aware of the current user environment (e.g. location, bit rate)  Global users in the network & in the services

3 France Telecom R&D ITU-T SG13 futures session – July 25, D3 Minimum requirements to support nomadic users  User identification + authentication  Identify the user separately from the access  User access control  Allowed / banned access  User location management  Retrieve where the user is located, over which access he’s connected

4 France Telecom R&D ITU-T SG13 futures session – July 25, D4 Additional requirements to support nomadic users  Enhanced services for nomadic users  Virtual Home Environment concept : – users should experience consistent service execution – services should be adapted to the current user situation in real-time WLAN access network xDSL  VHE enablers: – know more about the user environment – Access network + Terminal capabilities – know more about the user preferences – General user preferences – User configuration for the access service – Presence and availability management

5 France Telecom R&D ITU-T SG13 futures session – July 25, D5  Objective: to design generic, re-usable network functions  Technical issues:  1. How to provide a simple & secure interface to users ? –How to provide 'Single Sign On' to users across various access means (fixed and mobile) ? Which interactions to be defined with services & applications ? –Which authentication schemes ?  2. How to enable the operator to be a trusted 3d party ? – when the operator has performed identification & authentication  3. Access control: – how to access the user profile during access control in the network, when the user requests session setup ? Technical challenges for User Identification, Authenti- cation and Authorization in heterogeneous networks

6 France Telecom R&D ITU-T SG13 futures session – July 25, D6 Technical challenges for User data in heterogeneous networks  Data related to user environment (access + terminal)  Information needed for VHE and enhanced services  Technical issues:  1. Extract useful information from protocols in the signalling path – e.g. access identification, access type, terminal type, etc.  define the minimum information needed in these protocols and propose protocols evolutions when necessary  2. Provide a view of active access sessions in real-time  define interfaces to allow services and application to retrieve data of user access sessions – e.g. user location, max. bit rate available  be able to notify user IP connectivity = “network presence” – easier presence management at application level

7 France Telecom R&D ITU-T SG13 futures session – July 25, D7  User profile is composed of – “dynamic data” – values change as users move – e.g. user location, bitrate available, user presence, etc. – “static data” – values do not change as users move – e.g. service subscription, user preferences, etc  Technical issues:  How to retrieve any user data in a simple manner ?  Define a minimum user profile, which can be known by the network operator, applications and services ?  A consistent and global approach for user profile is needed Technical challenges for User profile in heterogeneous networks

8 France Telecom R&D ITU-T SG13 futures session – July 25, D8 Synergy with mobile networks ?  How to handle nomadism across fixed and mobile access ?  Example 1 : – develop Mobility Management (MM) functions for fixed access … … and mobile networks are used as a simple access means.  Users are handled by these MM functions whatever the access  Example 2 : –develop MM functions for fixed access … … users rely on mobile network MM when using a mobile access  Develop specific coordination between mobile and fixed network  In any case, the realization of VHE requires that – consistent interfaces with users and with services whatever the access, fixed or mobile

9 France Telecom R&D ITU-T SG13 futures session – July 25, D9 Conclusions  Standardisation activities for mobility management in NGN  ensure a “global user” approach, independent of a specific access technology  define a reference architecture and network functions required to support nomadic users  define required interfaces for these functions in the control layer – with the terminals, with the application layer, with the transfer plane
