9 Numbering, Naming and Addressing TISPAN WG4 have investigated the need to introduce a Naming Address Resolution (NAR) framework into TISPAN NGN conformant communication networksThe following approach was adopted:Investigation of ‘use cases in the NGN environment’ to determine required NAR functionsGap Analysis of current TISPAN NGNs specifications - comparing them to existing/emerging solutions of NAR methods.Identification of items requiring further standardization based on the above analysisAnalysis of the consequences of creating a Naming Address Resolution framework.
10 NGN InterconnectionTISPAN is currently working on ENUM & DNS Guidelines that will enable TISPAN to evaluate their requirements against what is set out within the GSMA documents IR34 and IR37.That exercise will provide a firm basis for TISPAN examine their requirements for an Inter-operator IP backbone network and discuss the possibility of a common approach with the GSMA, or alternatively conclude why this isn't the case.ETSI to:Complete work on ENUM & DNS Guidelines, NGN evolution for interconnection, inter-domain and access reference points, numbering, naming, addressing, routeing and Naming Address Resolution functionalityIdentify any critical outstanding issues and propose a way forward, e.g. the need to develop further commercial and administrative arrangements required to facilitate the realisation of an IPX responding to TISPAN requirementsCompare detailed requirements and guidelines against other planned approaches e.g. GSMAConsider the likelihood of achieving a viable large scale global approach for common IMS providersETSI is supporting the view that all required parties need to move forward in a coordinated manner.ETSI is supporting collaboration with 3GPP, GSMA, SDOs, ITU-T.

It runs one of the most widely read blogs in the sector.
14 Network Management NGN Management Resource Management (IMS Management imported from 3GPP)Subscription Management (SuM)IPTV Management“JointSuM”collaboration between ETSI TISPAN WG8, 3GPP SA5, and TM Forum TIP, working on alignment of the Subscription Management and Service Activation specifications in these bodies. Recently, also ITU-T SG 4 has indicated their interest in this work.CollaborationTM Forum and other de facto bodies are important players in the global telecom management standards arena. Their work is being taken into account in TISPAN WG8.
15 Testing ActivitiesProduction of manual and automatic test suites to ensure the conformance to TISPAN, 3GPP and ITU standardised protocols.These tests ensurethe global interoperability for and between ISDN and TISPAN NGN Releases incl. PSTN/ISDN Emulation Subsystem,QoS between networks,performance benchmarking for NGNCo-operation with3GPPITU (SG 11, SG 12)
16 Next Steps (in Standards) As NGN networks are being rolled out and tested, TISPAN is seeing a large increase in the number of corrections (CRs) to NGN-R1 and R2. This is a good sign.TISPAN (and ETSI) recognises the importance of cooperation agreements and is identifying key bodies and works together to avoid duplication of effort.TISPAN’s members are now focused on Rel-2 completion and progressing new work areas for Rel-3.Push ahead with e.g. the Interconnection work, IPTV, home networks, next generation corporate networks, next generation access technologies.
17 Other PSOs/Challenges Noted that the work on NGN protocols in ITU-T SG 11 is progressing well.It is noted that caution should be taken to ensure that work is not duplicated in PSOs. In general, cooperation with other PSOs is working well.As new features and services are introduced using NGNs, more and more divers players are active on the playing field (e.g. NGN IPTV-Content suppliers-broadcaster etc). This has to be coordinated!
18 NGN Interconnection of Services ETSI Board Strategic Topic Source:Fernando SorianoClaudio Gentile
19 IntroductionWithin the topic of “Service level Interconnection of NGN Services” ETSI:Intends to give a step forward and to highlight the importance of interconnection at the service level for Next Generation NetworkShows its determination to take the required steps to lead the creation of the interconnection standardand wiliness to bring all parties together to collaborate in its realizationETSI identified three main areas of work:Need of Global Standard that covers IP interconnection of NGN services.Avoiding divergent implementationsAnd assuring the global interconnection of NGNNGN Interconnection of Services was approved as a strategic topic for 2008 by the General Assembly in November 2007
20 RationaleETSI goal is the re-assure the elaboration of a global Standard for Interconnection of NGN Services.Today interconnection of IP is optimized for Internet.Interconnection of NGN services must take in consideration Telco requirements:QoS across the whole chainPayments, according to principles of initiating party pays (or others), premium numbers,…Reduce complexity of interconnection among operators (and, potentially, thousands of players) to achievable targetsAnd this Interconnection has to be achieved at a global scaleInterconnection of NGN affects to a multiple players and organizations, and differences in their approaches may lead to duplication and divergenceOut of Scope: Commercial relation itself across the chain of IMS
21 GAP AnalysisHow identified requirements (business oriented) fit with current standardization work on interconnection?Are well covered all aspects?Are there overlapping among the work in technical organizations?Initial study done by TE and TITaking as reference the IPX model developed in the GSMAAnd the work under progress in 3GPP and ETSI TISPANAnalyzing aspects related to:Architectural models, network interfaces,…QoS values defined across the IP chain (access, carrier, peering point, codecs,..), including KPI measurement,Security: Define and manage different security levels and profilesConsideration the intermediate figure of the carrier/hubCDR specification and production within the technical infrastructure for settlements among participantsTesting to certify interconnection.Etc.Shows that technical work may need to be reviewed, prioritized and better synchronized.
22 GAP Analysis: Requirements GSMA IPX Requirements3GPP Rel-83GPP Rel-9Inter-Service Provider IP Backbone RequirementsAddressing and routingQoS, Authentication and Authorization, AccountingService AwarenessNNI interface enabling direct service interconnection.In Rel-8 no requirements for an IP backbone have been defined.Specification of intermediate backbone must be consideredSecurity:Public Internet, Integrity.Tunnelling, Traffic splitting (UE/SERVER)Requirements not defined in SA1. Network domain security is defined by SA3 (TS )Should be defined in Rel9Charging SpecificationRequirement specified in SA1. Offline charging specified in SA5.Should be enhanced in Rel9Addressing and RoutingRequirements partially defined in SA1Requirement partially specified in SA1Should be enhanced in Rel9 new scenarios.Transcoding and Media Protocol ConversionRequirement specified in SA1Should be adopted in Rel-9 new scenarios.22
23 GAP Analysis: Architectures GSMA3GPPTISPANDirect or Indirect Interconnection (Service/Transport Level)Direct Connection (Rel8) (between CS, IMS cores, not ISP/ASPs)Rel 9 (SA1 starting TR) will cover also indirect interconnection scenarios.Service Interconnection SoIX architecture and use case scenarios defined for both direct and indirect interconnection. Note that IMS Direct Interconnection was tasked to 3GPP (“II-NNI”)Proposal of a TISPAN IPX.E2E QoS is a must in IPX. Use of Internet discouraged.E2E QoS relies simply on overprovisioning and marking of User Plane IP packets (using DiffServ).Both Internet and e2e QoS based models (inter-RACS signaling is under definition)TISPAN IPX includes carrier grade service interconnectionMainly targeted to GPRS or I-WLAN roaming and interworking of data services.Direct Interconnection for both IP services or legacy PSTN/PLMN multimedia serv.Interconnection for IP services or legacy PSTN/PLMN.Numerous requirements over IPX Proxy.No technical definition for IPX proxyNo technical definition for IPX proxy.Some requirements over operator Border Nodes (screening, firewall, GRE tunnels)Border Nodes: IBCF + TrGW not fully defined.No Ix interface defined. No firewall/QoS control. No GRE support.Border Nodes: IBCF + RACS + IBGF highly defined.Gq’ interface: QoS/NAT/Firewall control.No support for GRE tunnels.Interconnection Interfaces (NNI): Radius, MMS, IMS…IMS-NNI (Ici/Izi) under specification SIP-I NNI only starting.NNI Definition ongoing (TR only): either IMS, SIP-I or BICC/IP
24 NGN Interconnection Workshop 9 June 2008 - Discussion Importance of IP interconnection growing at all levelsNGN operators, International Carriers, etc.RegulatorsVendorsPresentations from the various organizations provided snapshots of activitiesGSMA IPX model presented as major piece of requirementsIPI Alliance and i3 Forum recently established may provide additional requirements3GPP Rel 8 to coverIMS to IMS NNI for direct interconnectionCS to CS based on SIP-IMore complex scenario’s including eg use of IPX service/network to be addressed in rel 9Discussion on the need to look at interconnection of IMS to generic (basic) SIPRoaming support presentation from NTT DoCoMo. More activity to be done as it is expected to influence the evolution of interconnectionPresentation from TE and TI provided initial review of the gaps between the GSMA business requirements/models and the standardsInteroperability testing (eg in ETSI INT) will have increasing importance once the standards are finalized
25 NGN Interconnection Workshop 9 June 2008 - Output Leverage TISPAN experience in this area to cover NGN requirements, not losing the expertise of this and other organizationsNeed to be aware of developments also in other organizations including ITU and the regional SDOs partners of 3GPP and share ETSI findings also in GSCIt is proposed to develop a high level roadmap showing the programs of each organization and the critical relationships over time. This should possibly present the timescale relevant to the major requirementsWhat is the next step? Focus down on a specific case, on a service level NNI, which is critical to be put in place, to be standardized, and discuss that in detail as a next stepIt was proposed to establish a mailing list to progress the discussionDo not lose the momentum, don’t stop ongoing activities while looking at future improvementIt was supported the importance of seeking a coherent and coordinated set of standards with global value
26 What nextEstablish the foundations for interconnection of the new generation of IMS services beyond frontiersTechnical standard for NGN interconnection of services must be timely available for NGN, coordinated with Common IMS, and IMS services that will be standardize by 3GPP, SDOs, OMA and other organizationsNext work requires to continue in the coordinated way initiated in Workshop:Technical bodies will continue contribution driven from their participants according with their normal proceduresSynchronization through liaisons may have to be reinforce by mixed working groups, follow up sessions or whatever may be decided2626
