July 31, 2006 Page 3 IMS/MMD Background Goals –Operator cost saving (CAPEX & OPEX) –Flexible, fast service creation –Independence of access technology –Re-use IETF protocols (SIP/SDP/RTP/Diameter/etc.) 3GPP IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) –First All-IP Workshop in February 2000 –IMS developed in 3GPP Release 5 and 6 –Now working on Release 7 3GPP2 Multi-Media Domain (MMD) –Formed All-IP ad hoc group in 1999 –Published MMD Rev 0 in December 2003 –Published MMD Rev A in November 2005 –Now wrapping up MMD Rev B, starting Rev C PP/PP2 agreed to “harmonize” at OHG workshop in April 2002
July 31, 2006 Page 4 IMS is standardized in 3GPP, 3GPP2, ETSI TISPAN, CableLabs, and ITU-T (NGN) IMS defines a framework for delivering multimedia services over IP (Internet Protocol) Framework provides following Architecture (Defines Functional Entities and Interfaces) Security (Authentication, Authorization, Integrity Protection) Accounting (Offline, Online) Application Server Architecture IMS claims to be Access Network Agnostic Single IMS core can support devices on different access networks e.g. cdma2000, WLAN, WCDMA, cable-modem etc. Introduction to IMS (1)
July 31, 2006 Page 5 Introduction to IMS (2) Uses protocols defined by IETF –e.g., Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), Session Description Protocol (SDP), Diameter IMS defines a number of services –Services are delivered over IP –End to end IP between AT (or UE) and network Enables interaction of dissimilar user devices. Facilitates convergence of multimedia services, such as gaming, messaging, and voice.
July 31, 2006 Page 6 MMD (Multimedia Domain) Standardized in 3GPP2 Consists of following: –IMS (IP Multimedia Subsystem) –Packet Data Subsystem 3GPP2 IMS –3GPP IMS with added flexibility –Supports alternate authentication schemes –Access network specific changes –Single radio voice call continuity

July 31, 2006 Page 17 Policy Control Service-Based Bearer Control (SBBC) –Bearer QoS authorization and charging control at PDSN based on IMS service authorization –Tx interface connects the Policy and Charging Rules Function (PCRF) to an Application Function (e.g., P-CSCF) that is responsible for application level service decisions –Ty interface connects the PCRF to the AGW (e.g., PDSN) that is responsible for bearer resources policy enforcement. –Part of MMD Rev B. To be enhanced for Rev C (e.g., extend Ty to Packet Data Interworking Function (PDIF) for WLAN access)
July 31, 2006 Page 18 3GPP/3GPP2 IMS/MMD Differences
July 31, 2006 Page 19 IMS in 3GPP/PP2
July 31, 2006 Page 20 3GPP IMS Releases 3GPP IMS Release 5, 6 complete; Release 7 in progress IMS Release 5 – IMS Registration, routing and call flows, Security Architecture, Accounting (Offline and Online Charging), Application Server Architecture IMS Release 6 – Presence, Conferencing, Messaging, Flow based charging (Gx and Rx), Group management, Early IMS (security + IPv4 support), Interworking non-IMS, Service based local policy (Gq interface) IMS Release 7 –CSI - combination of CS and IMS services (parallel operation of a CS service and an IMS session between the same two users), FBI – IMS over fixed broadband, VCC – Voice Call Continuity, PCC – Policy and Charging Control, Emergency Services
July 31, 2006 Page 21 3GPP2 MMD Releases 3GPP2 MMD Rev 0, A complete, Rev B in progress MMD Rev 0 –Basic IMS as in Rel 5, SIP/SDP procedures, security, offline charging, service architecture MMD Rev A –Adds Presence, Conferencing MMD Rev B –Includes Optimized call flows, Service Based Bearer Control (QoS mappings), VoIP/1x call delivery and handoffs, online charging, messaging
July 31, 2006 Page 22 3GPP/PP2 differences 3GPP IMS and 3GPP2 MMD are very similar except for some differences noted in the next few slides The differences are essential for deploying IMS over CDMA-based 3GPP2 systems. –Access network specific changes The differences do not affect interoperability between 3GPP and 3GPP2 systems.
July 31, 2006 Page 23 IMS Technical Differences (1) Access Security –3GPP IMS mandates IPsec between UE and P-CSCF for integrity protection »3GPP2 allows for P-CSCF and UE to negotiate other security mechanisms using RFC 3329 (like ipsec-ike, tls, digest etc) –3GPP IMS mandates using AKA for authentication between S-CSCF and UE »3GPP2 allows for alternate authentication mechanisms like Digest
July 31, 2006 Page 24 IMS Technical Differences (2) Smart Cards –3GPP IMS terminals have smart cards (UICC) »USIM (UMTS SIM), ISIM (IMS SIM) applications –3GPP2 IMS does not require a UICC »IMS information can be stored in UE or R-UIM. –3GPP2 now supports UICC + ISIM for operators that choose that method.
July 31, 2006 Page 25 IMS Technical Differences (3) Temporary Public/Private Identifiers –3GPP creates temporary Public/Private IDs to support terminals without ISIM application. –MMD Rev 0 (first release of MMD) does not support temporary IDs –MMD Rev A supports temporary IDs »The method of generating these ID’s is different between 3GPP and 3GPP2 E.212 vs MIN based IMSIs. Anchored internet access point –In 3GPP, the GGSN is anchored for a given session. –In 3GPP2, the PDSN may change.
July 31, 2006 Page 26 IMS Technical Differences (4) HSS (Home Subscriber Server) vs AAA –In 3GPP2 IMS, AAA + databases represent an HSS. –Also in 3GPP2 IMS, HSS is used only for PS domain. –In 3GPP, HSS is used for both PS & CS domains. P-CSCF Discovery procedures –3GPP2 supports static configuration and DHCP for P-CSCF discovery –3GPP Rel-5 supports P-CSCF discovery through DHCP and PDP context activation. IMS Rel 5, 6, 7 roughly equivalent to MMD Rev 0, A, B respectively.
July 31, 2006 Page 27 Other Access Specific Info P-Access-network-Info –UE includes CDMA specific information in P-Access-network-info P-Access-network-charging-info –Included by P-CSCF –Contains access network specific information for charging HRPD-VoIP to 1X-CS interworking –Behavior specific to 3GPP2 systems –3GPP assumes dual-RF chain –3GPP2 allows architectures with both single-RF and dual-RF »(dual radio for WLAN/HRPD)
July 31, 2006 Page 28 Current Projects in 3GPP2 MMD X.P0013 MMD Rev B –Service Based Bearer Control (SBBC) –Optimized call flows »Optimize resource reservations to speed session setup »Show QoS procedures in PDSN and RAN Based on IS-856-A, IS-835-D AT can pre-configure QoS reservations for SIP and RTP flows –Online Charging –Messaging X.P0027 Presence X.P0029 Conferencing X.P0042 VoIP/1x interworking (voice call continuity) X.P0048 SMS over IMS X.P0049 MMD Emergency Calling
July 31, 2006 Page 29 New Projects in 3GPP2 MMD Security Enhancements Policy Enhancements Roaming MMD Rev C (under discussion) WLAN/HRPD VoIP/VoIP handoffs (current)
July 31, 2006 Page 30 3GPP2 Security Enhancements For both Multi-Media Domain and packet data network security. TSG-S will develop security requirements and the security architecture to support the following: –Methods to reuse authentication results to bootstrap keys for SIP and non-SIP applications. –Methods to detect security problems in the network –Methods to remediate problems, whether in network nodes or end- user devices –Ability to update security software on devices when required –Ability to distribute security policies throughout the system. IETF is developing some of the protocols needed for this.
July 31, 2006 Page 31 MMD Policy MMD Rev B defined Service Based Bearer Control (SBBC) which enables an operator apply policy to SIP services, and to provision flow based charging rules at the PDSN. SBBC provides the mapping between application layer signaling and resource management in the RAN via the Tx/Ty interfaces. SBBC is somewhat limited however, in that the PDSN is the only policy enforcement point. New work item expands the scope of MMD policy –to include overall coordination of network resource usage (for SIP and non-SIP applications) –to enable policy exchange with other operators for roaming subscribers.
July 31, 2006 Page 32 MMD Roaming Inter-operator roaming architecture and protocols to allow MMD operators to provide services to their customers roaming on other networks. Includes IMS and PDS aspects. The MMD system will provide home operator control of MMD services. It is expected that all bearer traffic is not required to be routed via the home system. This will allow for low latency of real time traffic in the visited system. This work item will result in a technical report or specification on MMD roaming.
