3 Todays Agenda Video Conferencing Environment H.323 Video Conferencing Basics ITU Standard Addressing and Zone Management H.323 Deployment Internet2 Video Conferencing Service Applications in the Educational Environment

4 Video Conferencing Environment

5 Digital Video In The Educational Environment Classroom presentations- need for video clips Colloquiums- need to broadcast on the network Homework Assignments- Video-based reference material Collaborative classes- need for remote interaction between class participants Committee meetings- need for remote interaction between participants Informal collaboration- need for remote interaction between colleagues Conference presentations- need for remote interaction between presenters and audience

6 Parts of the Puzzle Web-based Virtual Classroom Collaborative Tools Application sharing White board Chat window Video Conferencing Real-time Streamed Video Archived Video

7 Video Conferencing Alternatives ISDN-based H.320 (Legacy) Internet-based Access Grid Virtual Room Videoconferencing System (VRVS) MPEG2 Multicast H.323

8 H.323 Video Conferencing H.323 Video Conferencing is becoming widely used in the educational environment. Staff meetings Working Group meetings Collaborations Interactive classes Conference tracks

9 ViDeNet: A Business Case ViDeNet is one current model for deployment Voice-Over-IP integration driving the business case Research applications driving video implementations

10 H.323 Video Conferencing Basics ITU Standard Addressing and Zone Management

11 H.323 Standard Umbrella set of standards defining real- time multimedia communications and conferencing over packet-based networks International Telecommunications Union (ITU) finalized Version 1 in 1996 Version 2 approved January 1998 Part of the family H.32x standards

12 H.323 Standard Version 2 added Security (H.235) –Authentication/Authorization –Integrity –Privacy –Non-Repudiation Fast call setup T.120/H.323 integration Supplementary services –Call transfer –Call diversion

13 H.323 Standard H.323 Components Terminals (Clients) Gateways GateKeepers Multipoint Control Units (MCUs)

14 H.323 Standard H.323 standard covers Voice- required Video- optional Data- optional

15 GateKeeper MCU H.323 Clients INTERNET H.323 Video Conferencing Real Video Web Browser H.323

16 Pieces of H.323 Audio Codecs G.711 (required), G.722, G.723, G.728, G.729 Video Codecs H.261 (required), H.263 Data Sharing T.120, T.125 Annex A (multicast) Call Control H.245

18 H.323 Standard Gatekeeper required functions Address translation Admissions control Bandwidth control Zone management Optional functions Call control signaling Call authorization Bandwidth management Call management

19 H.323 Zone Gatekeeper (master control) Multipoint Control Unit (MCU) Gateway Endpoints

20 Addressing H.323 Concepts Three intraZone Dialing Modes By IP address – not recommended By Alias (trjohns1 or By Extension ( ) Interzone Dialing Neighbor tables – current ViDeNet practice Automatic Destination Zone Resolution –Peer to peer –Hierarchical

21 Addressing Interfacing to the PSTN Exit Zone Prefix 0 ( ) Zone Prefix Extension +1 (919) Gatekeeper PSTN IP Network Gateway EndPoint

22 And Directory Services MetaDirectory LDAP ViDeNet Peer to Peer Gatekeepers

23 H.323 Standard Gateways are optional elements of H.323 that communicate with: PSTN analog terminals H.320 terminals via ISDN networks H.321 terminals over ATM H.324 terminals over PSTN networks Other

33 Internet2 Video Conferencing Service

34 Collaborative Video Conferencing Services over Internet2 Initiative Provide a service that is intended to enable one-to-one, one-to-group, and group-to-group collaborative conferencing in support of personal communication, meetings, conferences, and shared education for Internet2 members (primary and sponsored) and their international counterparts.

35 Basic Tenets of Service Independent of geographic or national boundaries Video conferencing viewed as current best collaborative environment Gateways between technologies will be necessary Gateways must be transparent to end users Need to consider voice/telephony integration

36 Key Technical Issues A Global Dialing Plan A Global Directory Service A Scheduling Mechanism for the use of shared resources Improvements and coordination in back room functionality and control Interoperability with other significant communication services (gateways)

37 Key Technical Issues (Continued) QoS Multicast H.235 Security Authentication/Authorization Integrity Privacy Non-Repudiation

38 I2DV Steering Committee I2DV-VC Sub-Committee White Paper Developers Implementation Plan Development Team Service Implementation Team Funding Task Force Operations Task Force Research & Development Task Force Outreach & Communication Task Force Collaborative Video Conferencing Services over Internet2

39 Proposed Prototype Service Focus on deployment not research Start with single technology Recommended that that prototype service be based on H.323 technology Based on contributed resources Based on distributed management Based on distributed systems Emphasis on Gateways (centralized if necessary)
