1 ©Patrik Fältström 2000 Document IPW-8 IETF - Areas of Work Patrik Fältström Area Director, Applications Area

2 ©Patrik Fältström 2000 What are we doing? Work is done in Working Groups Work is done in Working Groups –Specified by charters –Specification + Work Items –Work items according to timeline Internet-Drafts do not specify what the IETF is doing, among them are though working documents for the working groups Internet-Drafts do not specify what the IETF is doing, among them are though working documents for the working groups

3 ©Patrik Fältström 2000 Areas in the IETF Applications Applications General General Internet Internet Operations and Management Operations and Management Routing Routing Security Security Transport Transport User Services User Services

4 ©Patrik Fältström 2000 SpecificsSpecifics IETF works with a layered modular model, with IP in the middle IETF works with a layered modular model, with IP in the middle –IP on top of something –Something on top of IP Communication between layersCommunication between layers Reuse of existing solutionsReuse of existing solutions

6 ©Patrik Fältström 2000 Specifically for ITU FAX over Internet FAX over Internet –SG8 Media Gateway Control Media Gateway Control –SG16 PSTN and Internet Internetworking PSTN and Internet Internetworking –SG11

7 ©Patrik Fältström 2000 Other contacts Telephone Number Mapping Telephone Number Mapping –SG2 Service in the PSTN/IN Requesting Internet Service Service in the PSTN/IN Requesting Internet Service –SG11 Signaling Transport Signaling Transport Multiparty Multimedia Session Control Multiparty Multimedia Session Control Audio/Video Transport Audio/Video Transport IP Telephony IP Telephony Session Initiation Protocol Session Initiation Protocol Internetworking Over NBMA Internetworking Over NBMA Electronic Data Interchange-Internet Integration Electronic Data Interchange-Internet Integration …and maybe some more...

8 ©Patrik Fältström 2000 New work in the IETF Anyone can propose a WG Anyone can propose a WG –Normally they first get a BOF IESG decide if it looks ok IESG decide if it looks ok Question goes to "new-work" list and IETF as a whole Question goes to "new-work" list and IETF as a whole Input is requested - also from ITU Input is requested - also from ITU –Overlapping, not clear enough charter, impossible milestones, forgotten issues, just plain stupid IESG then makes a decision IESG then makes a decision

9 ©Patrik Fältström 2000 When wg exists Liason can be appointed Liason can be appointed Contact point for information to/from other organization Contact point for information to/from other organization Liasons appointed in pairs Liasons appointed in pairs –Org A assigns Foo as liason to B –Org B assigns Bar as liason to A Documents should only be created in one of the organizations, and referenced from the other Documents should only be created in one of the organizations, and referenced from the other

10 ©Patrik Fältström 2000 Not carved in stone Exactly how liasons and wg work has changed from wg to wg Exactly how liasons and wg work has changed from wg to wg It depends on how the wg work, and what the wg do It depends on how the wg work, and what the wg do We are still trying to find the way of cooperation which creates minimal friction We are still trying to find the way of cooperation which creates minimal friction –We eq IETF and ITU

11 ©Patrik Fältström 2000 New areas "Parallel" technologies like WAP "Parallel" technologies like WAP –Is this because "glue" between layers in the IETF is not good enough? New carriers of IP New carriers of IP –UMTS, GPRS Addressing, IP and lower layersAddressing, IP and lower layers Routing of IP, and "application"Routing of IP, and "application" Layering issues must be resolved! Layering issues must be resolved!

12 ©Patrik Fältström 2000 Layers in the IETF? Telephone call Telephone call –Addressing, routing, QoS Transport mechanism Transport mechanism –Connection oriented ("a call") IP layer IP layer –Addressing, routing Link layer, UMTS, GPRS Link layer, UMTS, GPRS –Addressing, routing, QoS ITU? ITU? IETF?

13 ©Patrik Fältström 2000 No borders! We need to cooperate We need to cooperate Several things are Several things are –Clearly IETF –Clearly ITU Note that addressing was mentioned in many layers Note that addressing was mentioned in many layers –E.164 number, IP address, wireless end node identifier How do we create correct glues? How do we create correct glues? –QoS is one such issue How do we reuse technologies? How do we reuse technologies? –FaxIP is of TIFF image

14 ©Patrik Fältström 2000 What is NNR? Depends on what layer one talk about Depends on what layer one talk about One do easily create "layering violation" One do easily create "layering violation" –Mix up link address with IP address with name for example Decide before starting discussing Decide before starting discussing Or, is the NNR discussion a meta discussion by itself? Or, is the NNR discussion a meta discussion by itself?

15 ©Patrik Fältström 2000 Contact points Don't hesitate contacting IESG, or rather, relevant Area Directors Don't hesitate contacting IESG, or rather, relevant Area Directors –http://www.ietf.org Contacts from ITU should be coordinated, if possible Contacts from ITU should be coordinated, if possible Patrik Fältström Patrik Fältström
