How To Successfully Implement IP Video SURA/ViDE 5 th Annual Digital Video Workshop March 26, 2003 ED STOCKEY IHETS Assistant Director, Product Research And Development
AGENDA HISTORY AND BACKGROUND QUALITY OF SERVICE (QoS) FIRE WALLS & PROXYS GATEKEEPERS/GATEWAYS DIAL PLAN CODECS DIRECTORY SERVICES REGISTRATION/SCHEDULING
IHETS: Basics Indiana Higher Education Telecommunication System Consortium of all accredited public and private postsecondary institutions in Indiana Created by enabling legislation in 1967 INDNET begun 1995 IHETS becomes Manager of the Indiana Telecommunications Network 1997 ITN serves all public institutions – this includes: Higher Education, K-12 schools, Public Libraries, State, County and Local government Total Sites Connected to ITN > 1,800
BACKGROUND TWO-WAY INTERACTIVE VIDEO –H.323 – IP VIDEO 2001 MCU TESTING – FALL 2000 RESULT: THEY ACTUALLY WORK!! RECOMMENDATION: Accord MGC 100 NEED TO LOOK AT THE VARIOUS ISSUES AND COMPONENTS NEEDED TO IMPLEMENT H.323 ON THE NETWORK – IP VIDEO TASK FORCEIP VIDEO TASK FORCE
Quality of Service (QoS) Challenges providing QoS for IP video –Head of line blocking (HOLB) –IP video uses UDP (universal datagram protocol) for transport of video and only uses TCP for control data – cannot resend lost video packets –Video uses large, variable length packets Bandwidth is not the complete solution
Quality of Service - Approaches Big Pipes QoS Both
QoS – How We Do It ACLs (access control lists) –to identify traffic and set IP precedence. For video and/or voice precedence is set to 5. Service policies push traffic into: –Low latency queuing (Priority queue) –Reserve bandwidth for RAS –Data queues which use RED Caveat – hardware limitations – example: Cisco 25xx routers
QoS Bandwidth guarantees for a T1 (1.544 Mbps): 512 kb/s for video 128 kb/s for voice 64 kb/s for SNA Remainder for everything else
FIRE WALLS Used to block traffic by disabling ports that allow traffic to come in to a users intranet. Usual strategy –Incoming: Block everything coming in. Open ports only as necessary based on need. –Outgoing: Allow everything. H.323 Video requires the following ports to be open in both directions to allow for optimal two way videoconferencing. –1718, 1719, 1720
PROXYS Allows a user to be anonymous to the outside world. Acts as a filter for incoming traffic. Requires a proxy server on both sides of firewall for H.323 video
INDnet Dial Plan E[T]CCCZZZNNNNNNN E = Exit Zone Prefix. 1 (Optional) T = Technology Prefix (Optional) CCC = Country Code ZZZ = Area Code NNNNNNN = Seven digit E.164 number Based on North American Numbering Plan (NANP)
Dial Plan Dialing between all protocols supported 13 digit E.164 number required in order to register with IHETS core gatekeeper First three numbers must match a valid country code as defined by E.164 ITU-T standard. (Default will be 001 for all calls made in the US and its territories) Next three numbers must match a valid area code as defined by NANP Next seven digits can be either: a user defined number or a valid seven digit Direct Inward Dial (DID) number such as the phone number on their desk
Dial Plan Seven digit number on desk ensures uniqueness of 13 digit number within an area code Technology prefix required in order to dial off net to ISDN endpoint Automatically scales to national and international dial strings based on E.164 Allows for future migration to ENUM standard when implemented GDS Compliant
Codec Recommendations That a vendor have both a desktop (PC based) and a room system in their product line Support interoperability Ease of Support Financial considerations Based on IPVTF
Codec Recommendations Room Systems –Polycom Viewstation FX (Appliance Based) –VCON Media Connect 8000 (PC Based) Desktop Systems (PC Based) –Polycom ViaVideo –VCON ViGO Based on IPVTF
DIRECTORY SERVICES Click To Meet TM Connects Point-to-Point any protocol –IP – ATM, IP – ISDN, ATM - ISDN Creates multipoint conferences on the fly Can schedule Point-to-Point or multipoint conferences in the future Sends out e-mails notifying end users of upcoming meetings Can program all calls to go through a gateway or bridge
DIRECTORY SERVICES Click To Meet TM Continuous presence built in Will handle streaming media Supports firewall NAT/proxy/VPN transversal Connects to a gatekeeper CTM Premier V 3.17 uses Microsofts Active Directory for user accounts –LDAP support provides the capability to support connectivity to external, 3 rd party data stores like Novells eDirectory, Sun ONE Directory Server (formerly iPlanet LDAP Server) and Netscapes Directory Server
