ATIS IPTV Standards Development via ATIS IPTV Interoperability Forum (IIF) Submission Date: July 1, 2008 PresentationFOR: GSC13-PLEN-38DOCUMENT #: Dan OCallaghan Plenary; IPTV; 6.6AGENDA ITEM: ATISSOURCE:
2 Highlight of Current Activities (1) Completion or nearing completion of Phase 1 work activities –Standards related to Quality of Service Metrics for 1) Linear Broadcast TV and 2) Public Services –Metadata specifications for 1) Emergency Alert Provisioning and 2) Electronic Program Guide 3) Consumer Domain Device Configuration –Remote Management of Devices in the Consumer Domain –Interoperability for Secure Download and Messaging –Trial-Use Standard for an Estimated Peak Signal-to-Noise Ratio algorithm –IPTV Linear/Broadcast Service; Attachment and Initialization –Interoperability specifications for 1) Certificate Trust Management Hierarchy 2) Standard PKI Certificate Format –IPTV Media Protocols
3 Highlight of Current Activities (2) Phase 2 work is underway –Server and Client Side APIs –Security Robustness Rules –Distribution of Content in the Subscribers Authorized Service Domain –QoS Metrics for On-Demand Video Content Recent partnership agreement signed with MultiService Forum (MSF) for Global MSF Interoperability event in October 2008 –Will test key IPTV building blocks related to authentication and initialization at five test sites: Verizon, NCS and UNH-IOL in the USA and BT/Vodafone in Europe and China Mobile in Asia At the time the IIF was created, interoperability verification was included in the scope of its work –This verification required major specification work to be completed in order to define parametric test points for interoperability –IIF documentation has progressed to the point of interoperability verification and now allows for this aspect of the IIF work to proceed
4 Strategic Direction (1) The ATIS IIF standards development has been defined in three phases: –Phase 1: Implementation of a standard TV service experience over IP networks. –Phase 2: Transaction-based services, such as VoD (Video on Demand), IPPV (Impulse Pay-Per-View). –Phase 3: Interactive TV services, including consumer originated video, multiplayer games. Whenever possible, IIF standards align with the work of other SDOs, including the ITU-T, DVB, CEA, DSL Forum, and ETSI. –Continue with SDO and ITU-T coordination and collaboration. –Established important relationships with all of the leading organizations working in the IPTV realm to share our end-to-end view of the standards being developed.
5 Strategic Direction (2) ATIS IIF is developing standards within and across all of the domains. Support both the IMS and web services approach to IPTV in the NGN framework. –The IIFs High Level Architecture shall allow for both core IMS and non-IMS approaches for IPTV in the NGN framework. –The core IMS and non-IMS approaches shall be able to co-exist on the same NGN framework. –The core IMS and non-IMS approaches shall use common components where possible. Timely completion of deliverables to support early deployment of standardized IPTV. Source: IPTV Architecture Requirements, ATIS , May 2006 Content Provider Service Provider Network Provider Consumer
6 Challenges In 2007 IIF agreed to develop and harmonize both IMS and Non- IMS (web services) approach to IPTV. The IIF approach is based on different signalling and transport protocols being used to access COMMON data structures. IMS and Non-IMS are not tangential approaches to the same application rather, applications are driven by common data structures that can be acquired via multiple methods.
7 Next Steps/Actions Complete currently defined work program (Phase 1 work, per IIF Architecture Requirements and Roadmap). Creation of Phase 2 work items (Issues) has already begun (VoD, Fast Channel Change, Hybrid networks etc.). Continue IPTV OSS/BSS work program. Continue to work cooperatively with external organizations, especially the ITU-T, on aligning efforts and work products. Strategic agreement with the MultiService Forum (MSF) to test IIF Phase 1 specifications at the Global MSF Interoperability (GMI) 2008 event.

10 IIF Committees IIF Architecture (ARCH) Committee IIF IPTV Security Solutions (ISS) Committee –Formerly the Digital Rights Management Task Force IIF Metadata (MTD) Committee IIF Quality of Service Metrics (QoSM) Committee IIF Testing and Interoperability (T&I) Committee
11 Committee Work Program Comprehensive Work Program –The ATIS IPTV work program is comprehensive, including work planned or underway in areas such as architecture, multiple access network technologies, security and digital rights, testing, interoperability, metadata, operational support systems/business support systems (OSS/BSS), identity management, quality of service (QoS), and quality of experience (QoE). Aggressive/Robust Program Management –The ATIS IPTV Interoperability Forum (IIF) has an aggressive program management approach to driving standards development. This robust program drives the development of IPTV standards in the time and manner demanded by the business objectives of the ATIS member companies and the global marketplace.
12 ATIS Market-Driven IPTV Work Program Broad industry representation –ATIS has representatives from the requisite industry sectors (service providers, vendors, customer equipment manufacturers, etc.) leading, supporting, and driving the IPTV work. Broad industry liaisons –ATIS has established important relationships with all of the leading organizations working in the IPTV realm to share our end-to-end view of the standards being developed.
13 ATIS Committee Involvement IPTV, Primary (End-to-End) Responsibility: –IPTV Interoperability Forum (IIF) IPTV OSS/BSS Work: –Telecom Management and Operations Committee (TMOC) –Ordering and Billing Forum (OBF) –ATIS CIO Council (IPTV Working Group) IPTV Identity Management –Packet Technologies and Systems Committee (PTSC)
14 IIF Mission The IIF enables the interoperability, interconnection, and implementation of IPTV systems/services by developing ATIS standards and facilitating related technical activities. The IIF will place an emphasis on North American and ATIS Member Company needs in coordination with other regional and international standards development organizations.
15 IIF Scope 1. Coordinate standards activities that relate to IPTV technologies. This includes providing a liaison function between the various SDOs and forums that are each working on important components for multimedia, but may not have visibility to other aspects of the application. 2. Develop interoperability agreements, technical reports, or other types of ATIS standards where appropriate. 3. Provide a venue for interoperability activities. 4. Provide a venue for the assessment of IPTV issues in the context of NGN directions.
16 IIF Committees IIF Architecture Committee The Architecture Committee develops IPTV architecture requirements and specifications required to enable deployment of a standardized, interoperable, access agnostic NGN IPTV service. IIF IPTV Security Solutions (ISS) Committee The IPTV Security Solutions Committee works with other standards groups involved in content security activities, with the end goal of selecting a single security method or establishing a framework where multiple methods can be utilized for an interoperable standardized security solution for IPTV services.
17 IIF Committees (contd) IIF Metadata and Transaction Delivery (MTD) Committee The Metadata and Transaction Delivery Committee investigates the IPTV architecture to identify metadata elements which require standardization including security, connectivity and transport, and performance metric metadata required for transport of time sensitive information. In addition, the Committee shall specify the encoding format for the metadata. IIF Quality of Service Metrics (QoSM) Committee The Quality of Service Metrics Committee develops metrics, models, tools, and techniques for measurement for quality of service and quality of experience for IPTV services.
18 IIF Committees (contd) IIF Testing and Interoperability (T&I) Committee The Testing and Interoperability Committee addresses IPTV interoperability issues identified through analysis, planning, trials, deployments, and operations, and provides recommended courses of actions. In addition, necessary test scripting and test planning for post-standards- development testing-events are developed to mitigate field deployment issues.
