Agenda Why NGN? Standardization process ITU-T NGN NGN standardization in Japan

5 Why NGN?

6 Technological necessity of NGN
Does the Internet continue to evolve? The Internet created various applications thanks to the freedom of end-users. Does it apply to IPTV, Web 2.0, or FMC? Best-effort QoS: New applications are hard to develop Commercial quality real-time communications are difficult to provide TV conference, streaming, … Security/Reliability: Not carrier-grade Children/elders can’t apply patches everyday Mobility: the next bonanza will be in mobile gadgets Current (ordinary) IP assumes fixed network Discussions at Linux Symposium (2006)

7 Limitation from IP’s principle
router Principle of IP router TE router TE Routing table Packet (header + payload) Routing table are updated in local manner; no network-wide, no equipment-wide sync  scalable and cheap, but no QoS guarantee becomes possible No state in routers; minimize memory access  expandable and faster, but traffic engineering becomes unavailable Very limited functions in networks  interoperable ‘Internet Protocol’, but no security, no QoS-awareness The problems tightly linked with IP principle and merits

8 IP Design Philosophy: Main Goals
Effective multiplexed utilization of existing networks Packet switching, not circuit switching Continued communication despite network failures Routers don’t store state about ongoing transfers End-hosts provide key communication services Support for multiple types of communication service Multiple transport protocols (e.g., TCP and UDP) Accommodation of variety of different networks Simple, best-effort packet delivery service Packets may be lost, corrupted, or delivered out of order Distributed management of network resources Multiple institutions managing the network Intradomain and interdomain routing protocols Grosshauser (2002)

9 Characteristics of the Internet
The Internet is Decentralized (loose confederation of peers) Self-configuring (no global registry of topology) Stateless (limited information in the routers) Connectionless (no fixed connection between hosts) These attributes contribute To the success of the Internet To the rapid growth of the Internet …and the difficulty of controlling the Internet :< Grosshauser (2002)

10 Operator Philosophy: Tension with IP
Accountability of network resources But, routers don't maintain state about transfer But, measurement isn’t part of the infrastructure Reliability/predictability of services But, IP doesn’t provide performance guarantees But, equipment is not very reliable (no ‘five-9s’) Downtime: IP networks: 471min/year, POTS: <5min/year Fine-grained control over the network But, routers don’t do fine-grain resource allocation But, network self-configures after failures End-to-end control over communication But, end hosts adapt to congestion But, traffic may traverse multiple domains Grosshauser (2002)

11 But operators cannot rely on PSTN services any more
# of calls in Japan (from MIC’s white paper 2005) (1e8) (fiscal year) PDC mobile fixed Total In most developed countries, 2000 or around was the peak of telephone traffic

12 We must make Operator-friendly IP networks
IP traffic > telephone traffic May 2006: 524Gbps (Public Internet in Japan) > 20%/year Fiscal 2004: 34.1Gbps (in Japan: converted 533k Erlang using 64kbps/call) > -5%/year IP must be the base of future networks NTT: trial starts by the end of fiscal 2006 KDDI: Fixed network becomes all-IP by fiscal 2007 BT: by 2008 Korea: long-distance is by 2007, local by 2010 Timeline

13 NGN: best mix of packet and circuit
"Service Stratum" for per-session control of packet transmission Data is transmitted with IP packet for interoperability All necessary functions are in the network (fat network approach) Operators can maintain every aspect of functions  increase reliability All the terminals can do is just to call network’s functions  increase security Control interface is open  promotes development of applications Video Services (TV, movie, etc) Data Services (WWW, , etc) (Any/All Applications Telephone Services e.g. voice , data , video) NGN service control functions Anything & Everything "Service Stratum" (Session control by using SIP, etc.) Scope Internet Protocol Of (IP) "Internet" NGN transport functions Everything (Any & All Network technologies) "Transport Stratum" (managed IP network) Hourglass model of IP ITU-T Y.2011 "General principles and general reference model for Next Generation Networks"

14 2. Standardization process

15 De jure standards v. De facto standards
Open and fair process Results are shared among all participants (usu. without charge) Reflects broader opinions Operated by highly motivated volunteers Faster standardization Currently very popular ITU, ISO, TTA, TTC, .. IETF, TMF, WiMAX, .. framework Individual components and technologies In NGN NGN framework includes regulations and policies (e.g., how to standardize emergency services, how to design market regulations considering network architecture)  De jure standards becomes important

16 NGN related standard bodies
International De Jure SDO Standardize NGN in NGN-GSI, esp. SG13. Issued first recommendations in July 2006. ITU-T TISPAN project standardize NGN, esp. VoIP.

Below are the first 3 NGN management capabilities shall support the aims of the NGN by: 1. Providing the ability to manage, through their complete life cycle, NGN components, both physical and logical. This includes resources in the transport stratum and the service stratum, access transport functions, interconnect components and user networks and terminals; 2. Providing the ability to manage NGN service components independently from the underlying NGN transport components and enabling organizations offering NGN services (potentially from different service providers) to build distinctive service offerings to customers; 3. Providing the management capabilities which enable organizations offering NGN services to offer users the ability to personalize user services and to create new services from NGN capabilities (potentially from different service providers); (9 more requirements cont.)

26 NGN functional architecture (Y.2012)
Transport stratum for managed IP packet transfer, and Service stratum for session control and for additional services, are clearly separated. (Does not align with OSI model; e.g., transport stratum includes session) Transport stratum: composed of Transport Function for IP packet transmission, NACF for user attachment (authentication, IP address assignment, etc.), and RACF for QoS Service stratum: composed of SCF for IMS and PSTN/ISDN emulation, and support functions for developing applications Terminal: for 3G terminals: IPv6, for traditional fixed-network terminals: IPv4 3rd Party applications for Open Mobile Alliance (OMA) works on Application Network Interface (ANI) Applications A NI Application Support Functions & Service Support Functions Service User Service Control Service User Profiles Functions (SCF) Management Functions Service stratum Network Attachment Control Functions (NACF) Network Attachment Resource and Admission Control Functions (RACF) Control Functions T ransport User End- Transport User Profiles User Transport Control Functions Other Functions Networks Transport Functions UNI NNI Transport stratum Control Media Management NGN architecture overview From ITU-T Y.2012 (06/07)

28 IMS (IP Multimedia Subsystem) overview
Provides various SIP-based services Provides session control, charging, security functions Increase end-user’s experience by unifying registration, authentication and charging Provides interfaces to control transport functions QoS, media gateway, alignment of charging on transport functions and service functions Provides interfaces not only to operators, but 3rd party application vendors Clearly defined SIP from operator’s point of view IETF SIP is not enough for network operators e.g., IETF SIP does not define the start and the end of charging ITU-T NGN refers 3GPP Release 7 IMS

29 IMS for NGN (Y.2021) CSCF (Call Session Control Function): SIP server, the core of this architecture. P-CSCF (Proxy CSCF) is a sip server that communicate with user terminals Various functions are defined as the gateway to other networks

30 Per-session Resource and Admission Control Functions (Y.2111)
End-user (terminal) requests SCF a session establishment RACF manages the current network resources, and grant/reject the request to achieve QoS guarantee Relative QoS (e.g., diffserv’s CoS) is acceptable Various message flow and protocols are defined, operators will choose ETSI NGN Release 1 defines RACF for access network only ITU-T defines core network RACF as well SCF AP server SIP server DIAMETER, etc. SCF : Service Control Functions (IMS and PSTN/ISDN emulation function on IMS) RACF : Resource Admission Control Functions Access-RACF Core-RACF Other NGN networks Session establish Request by SIP Resource control server Resource control server PDF PDF Access network (e.g, metro ethernet) Core networks (e.g., MPLS)
