In these network protocols like PIM, IGMP and BGP should be activated. Different levels of a NGN Network.

Havana, Cuba, 8-9 February Obtaining of the information for the validation of the quality of the video signal. A video signal to be transmitted over a IP network should be compressed. The codec MPEG defines a sequence of images I, B and P, which a GOP conforms. In the header of these packets they are fields that possess outstanding information's to be able to make the validation of the quality of the video signal Source: Shenick.

Havana, Cuba, 8-9 February Here the impact of the transcodificación of the signal was evaluated due to not having the contents the same code format as well as the employment of a Hybrid solution in Havana City and its repercussion starting from the behavior of the error accountants SAE, SDE and SIE in the period of evaluation of the quality and its correlation with the subjective observation of the sign. This test allowed the evaluation of the potentialities and the weaknesses of the ETECSA access network to support a service of BTV, MPEG-2, and it consisted on the design of a Hybrid Network that simulates the solution used by Orange in its service of IPTV, which allows to increase the covering of a service of BTV in areas where you cannot offer an appropriate band width for this service. It facilitates the determination of Eligible and Not Eligible Users Test with the FreeProbe (T-factor), simulation of the solution of Orange. Source. VPDT.

The introduction of the metric MDI in the Freeprobe and the necessity of making experimental tests to define the necessary objective-subjective correlation and to determine the respective thresholds in each disturbance type, made necessary the design of a laboratory testing model.

Havana, Cuba, 8-9 February Results of the Simulations Tests. Uniform packet loss: Superior losses to 0.001% are inadequate for a service of IPTV and they have bigger impact in the audio one that in the video. Packet Loss in Burst: Bigger affectation in the video that in the audio one, however they are less annoying for the user than the uniform losses. Delay and the Jitter: Affectations are not observed in the range between 0 and 50 mseg, what demonstrates the recommendations of the WT-126 of the DSL Forum´s.

Havana, Cuba, 8-9 February Conclusions. The design of the IP network of broadband in ETECSA with the implementation of protocols like the PIM, IGMP and BGP among others constitutes the fundamental pillar of the development of the Objective Network of ETECSA, allowing the expansion of the NGN and the possibility of offering novel services like the IPTV. The valuable theoretical and investigative experiences developed for the appropriate correlation of the QoS and the QoE with the employment of the probe FreeProbe, with metric T-factor and MDI, they have allowed ETECSA to have a tool personalized for the validation of the quality of the service of IPTV, which was extended, with the addition of new metric in the Freeprobe that include the validation of the service of ToIP (at the moment in test). The Platform of Services of IPTV developed in ETECSA, jointly with the laboratory testing model that incorporates a IP network emulator was an important aspects that minimized the costs of the investments of the investigative stage were and they allowed to obtain important theoretical and practical results. The proposal of use of the FreeProbe (MDI) to validate the Profile of Quality of the IP Network of ETECSA, it transforms it into an important alternative in front of the expensive acquisition of the Shadow Router dedicated to this only function.
