1 GSC: Standardization Advancing Global Communications Home Networking in ITU-T An overview of the Home Networking studies in ITU-T and of the Joint Co-ordination Activity which has been set up to harmonize these studies across the various ITU-T Study Groups and seek co-operation with outside Home Networking bodies SOURCE:ITU-T TITLE:Home Networking in ITU-T AGENDA ITEM:GTSC-4, agenda item 5.7 CONTACT:Andrew Nunn, Convener ITU-T JCA-HN (Joint Co- ordination Activity – Home Networking) GTSC4(06)_09

2 GSC: Standardization Advancing Global Communications Current Home Networking Activity in ITU-T (1/4) Question NumberTitle 8/5Home Networks 4/9Application programming interfaces (API) for advanced cable television and sound programme distribution within the scope of Study Group 9 5/9Functional requirements for a universal integrated receiver or set- top box for reception of cable television and other services

3 GSC: Standardization Advancing Global Communications Current Home Networking Activity in ITU-T (2/4) Question NumberTitle 10/9The extension of cable-based services over broadband in Home Networks 13/12Multimedia QoS/QoE performance requirements and assessment methods All/13NGN is an end-to-end project. Home Networking is one component in many aspects of NGN, e.g., architecture, performance, security

4 GSC: Standardization Advancing Global Communications Current Home Networking Activity in ITU-T (3/4) Question NumberTitle 1/15Coordination of Access Network Transport standards 2/15Optical systems for fibre access networks 4/15Transceivers for customer access and in-premises phone line networking systems on metallic pairs

5 GSC: Standardization Advancing Global Communications Current Home Networking Activity in ITU-T (4/4) Question NumberTitle 10/15Optical fibres and cables for the access network to and in buildings and homes 21/16Multimedia Architecture 22/16Multimedia Applications and Services 24/16QoS and End-to-End Performance in Multimedia Systems 9/17Secure communication services

6 GSC: Standardization Advancing Global Communications Joint Co-ordination Activity (1/4) JCA–HN established by TSAG in March 2005 Dedicated reflector and website set up Initial membership consists of ITU-T Study Group Chairmen, Chairmens nominees and Study Group Counsellors Progressing work via correspondence Face-to-face meetings when necessary

7 GSC: Standardization Advancing Global Communications Joint Co-ordination Activity (2/4) First meeting of JCA-HN on October 2005 reviewed ITU-T workshop Opportunities and Challenges in Home Networking The HN Workshop identified a number of issues requiring resolution, and of these the JCA-HN considered the following to be priorities: –Need for a network independent and service independent architecture –Quality of Service (QoS) –Need for spectrum allocation for Wi-Fi in the UHF television band –Need to align HN terminology between the various bodies working on Home Networking

8 GSC: Standardization Advancing Global Communications Joint Co-ordination Activity (3/4) ITU-T SGs 9, 13, 15 and 16 asked to establish a task force to develop a network independent and service independent architecture for Home Networking ITU-T SGs 9 and 12 asked to establish a task force to look at QoS and terminology issues The scope of the JCA-HN was finalised following the first meeting of the JCA-HN and discussions at the TSAG meeting in November It was agreed that the name Home Network Initiative will be used to describe work in this field across all the ITU-T Study Groups

9 GSC: Standardization Advancing Global Communications Joint Co-ordination Activity (4/4) JCA-HN will: Co-ordinate the Home Network Initiative activity across all the relevant ITU-T Study Groups (e.g. currently ITU-T SGs 4, 5, 6, 9, 12, 13, 15, 16, 17) and liaise with relevant ITU-R SGs (currently, SGs 1 and 6) Seek co-operation from external bodies working in the field and disseminate information received from these bodies to the relevant ITU-T Study Groups Identify what should be standardised by ITU-T Prepare a roadmap for this standardisation activity

10 GSC: Standardization Advancing Global Communications Co-operation with outside bodies (1/2) Bodies who have agreed to co-operate with ITU-T Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) CE-Powerline Communication Alliance (CEPCA) DSL Forum Home Gateway Initiative HomePNA Open PLC European Research Alliance (OPERA) UPnP

11 GSC: Standardization Advancing Global Communications Co-operation with outside bodies (2/2) At the World Standards Co-operation (WSC - a co- operation between ISO, IEC and ITU) workshop on digital technology in the home held in February 2006 in Geneva, it was agreed that WSC co-operation with outside Home Networking bodies should be carried out under the existing ITU-T JCA-HN At the ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 25 meeting held in March 2006 in Munich, it was agreed to jointly work with the ITU-T on a number of Home Networking topics

12 GSC: Standardization Advancing Global Communications Joint work with ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 25 Network and service independent systems architecture Aim: Standard, common text Taxonomy/classification as a tool to develop a roadmap that may need to fill gaps and harmonise multiple options Aim: Common living document Alignment of terminology Aim: Technical alignment Standardisation roadmap Aim: Common living document

13 GSC: Standardization Advancing Global Communications Conclusion The ITU-T has established a co-ordination activity on Home Networking which enables them to work with the relevant outside bodies The JCA-HN encourages Participating Standards Organizations (PSOs) and other standards bodies to work with the ITU-T to develop harmonized Home Networking standards JCA-HN website: projects/jca-hn/index.phtml projects/jca-hn/index.phtml
