International Telecommunication Union Geneva, 20-21 July 2009 Overview of MRA and Framework for Interoperability Testing Standard Division Global ICT Strategy Bureau Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications, Japan ITU Consultation on Conformance Assessment and Interoperability Testing (Geneva, 20-21 July 2009)
International Telecommunication Union Geneva, 20-21 July 2009 1. Overview of Mutual Recognition Agreement 2. Framework and procedure for interoperability testing: Case Study for NGN equipment and terminals 2
International Telecommunication Union 1. Overview of Mutual Recognition Agreement (MRA) Geneva, 20-21 July 2009 3
International Telecommunication Union 3. Export 1. Application [Japan] [Foreign Country] Apply directly to foreign conformity assessment bodies CAB Before Implementation of the MRA Supplier s 2. Conformity Assessment CAB After Implementation of the MRA It can obtain certification for foreign country in Japan Assessment in Japan (shorter period and lower cost) Supplier s [Japan] [Foreign Country] 3. Export Market in Foreign Countries 1. Application Mutual Recognition Agreement Country shall accept mutually the results of conformity assessment procedures for Telecommunications equipment. Japan has conclude, Japan- EC MRA(Enacted Jan, 2002), Japan-Singapore MRA (Enacted Nov, 2002) and Japan-US MRA(Enacted Jan,2008) Market in Foreign Countries CAB: Conformity Assessment body Geneva, 20-21 July 2009 4
International Telecommunication Union Promote the international trade of Telecommunications Equipment Facilitate the use of telecommunications equipment such as mobile phone abroad Tested once, accepted everywhere [Before Implementation of MRA] Assessment only once in Japan allows the equipment to be used abroad. [After Implementation of MRA] Japan the US the EC Certification ofAssessment in Japan the US the EC Certification ofAssessment in Japan the US the EC Addition of states increases cost and time. Need for assessment in each country Certifications of each country obtained in Japan Geneva, 20-21 July 2009 5
International Telecommunication Union Considering positively to implement MRA with countries which will benefit Japanese industry and consumers judging from the cost-benefit analysis. Japanese CABs can accept test data from foreign countries without MRA. MRA is under implementation or consideration with countries that can implement mutual recognition of certification results. MRA with the EC, Singapore and US are under implementation (See supplementary slides). Japanese stance on MRA MRA relating to telecommunications equipment Geneva, 20-21 July 2009 6
International Telecommunication Union 2. Framework and procedure for interoperability testing: Case Study for NGN equipment and terminals Geneva, 20-21 July 2009 7
International Telecommunication Union If bilateral recognition framework such as MRA be applied to interoperability testing, while the number of countries increases, interoperability testing is to be implemented between countries for all combinations with different testing criteria; then the workloads and the cost for the achievement of interoperability increase. [A] [N] [a] [n] Country It is necessary to comply with technical standard based on the certification system of each country apart from the interoperability testing. Asia America Europe Africa Recommendations, common references and guideline for interoperability testing Interoperability Testing Once recommendations, common references and guideline for interoperability testing are defined, the workloads and the cost can be reduced by examining the tests according to them.

International Telecommunication Union Selection & Prioritization of Application VoIP, IP Video Phone, Service & application on NGN SIP Layer Application Layer Build test bed Test Environment -Temporary or permanent installation - w/wo remote connection -Execute tests -Examine results -Feedback to test specifications Link -SDP -Selection options - Session Control: SIP - Application: ? IPTV, FMC -Define specifications -Define profile Examine tests Step 1 Step 2 Step 3 Step 1: Define service & application scenarios on NGN Step 2: Define test specifications for the defined scenario in step 1 Step 3: Build up test bed and examine tests Procedure for NGN Interoperability Testing Geneva, 20-21 July 2009 9
International Telecommunication Union Geneva, 20-21 July 2009 10 Service scenario and its protocol Bearer (Transport) Layer: RTP, RTSP, MPLS Session Layer: SIP, HTTP Application Layer (Service Scenario, Use case): IP Phone (VoIP), IP Video Phone, IPTV, FMC Test Specification Physical Architecture Physical Architecture is defined depending on service scenario. Implementation Agreement Implementation agreement is defined for each interface such as UNI, NNI, and I/F between equipments. Test Profile Recommendation related to service scenario and implementation agreement and necessary options are selected.
