    IPTV Interoperability Forum (IIF)
• March 2005 - IPTV Exploratory Group (IEG) established by the ATIS
  Board of Directors to assess the technical and operational opportunities
  and challenges surrounding deployment of IPTV.

• June 2005 – On recommendation of IEG, ATIS Board established the
  IPTV Interoperability Forum (IIF) as part of ATIS Board’s priority work to:
    –   Bring focus and coordination to standards work needed for IPTV.
    –   Resolve issues that may impede adoption of IPTV.
    –   Provide venue for interoperability activities.
    –   Assess IPTV issues in light of NGN directions.

• IIF Mission: Enable the interoperability, interconnection, and
  implementation of IPTV systems/services by developing ATIS standards
  and facilitating related technical activities.

                    IIF Focus
Address the Highest IPTV Priority Items for the
  1. Overall reference architecture for IPTV.
  2. Industry accepted standardized metrics and
     requirements for content security (digital rights
     management) and the quality of content delivery
     (Quality of Customer Experience).
  3. End-to-End QoS functionality to support multiple
     services (voice, video and data) on the same network.
  4. Interoperability standards and testing of components
     in the video delivery network.

                    IPTV Definition
• Secure and reliable delivery to subscribers of entertainment
  video and related services.
   – Live TV, Video On Demand (VOD) and Interactive TV (iTV).

• Services are delivered across an access agnostic, packet-
  switched network that employs the IP protocol to transport
  the audio, video and control signals.
   – Not Video over DSL.

• In contrast to video over the public Internet, with IPTV
  deployments, network security and performance are tightly
  managed to ensure a superior entertainment experience,
  resulting in a compelling business environment for content
  providers, advertisers and customers alike.
   – Not Video over Public Internet.

                  ARCH Task Force
• Requirements & Roadmap document – March 2006
   – Define roadmap and requirements for IPTV architecture as it evolves
     over time, considering
      •   Service Descriptions and Capabilities
      •   Models for Content Sourcing
      •   Models for billing and settlement arrangements for video services
      •   Content security
      •   Network Architecture models (Core, Access, Home) [not just network
          layer and below]
      •   Application Architecture models (Service Enablers, App servers,
          Resources, API and Protocols models, Device functions models)
      •   IP network supporting infrastructure required to support IPTV. E.g.,
          Domain Name Services (DNS), Network Time Protocol (NTP), network
          access authentication (RADIUS/LDAP).
      •   Evolving nature of terminal devices (multi-resolution support)
      •   Models for advertising insertion

         ARCH Task Force (cont.)
• Requirements & Roadmap document – March 2006
    (Continuation of previous slides’s list of considerations addressed by document.)
        • Models for viewership reporting to advertisers
        • Service integration (e.g., caller id on the TV screen)
        • Content location mechanisms (e.g., Electronic Program guides, search
           capabilities, directories)
        • Content metadata assumptions and requirements ( e.g., XML/MPEG 7)
        • Content transformation services (e.g., changing resolution via MPEG 21 Digital
           Item Adaptation)
        • Interactive TV services (e.g., audience polling, information services15, games)
        • OAM of the IPTV infrastructure ( e.g., at the MPEG layer)
        • IPTV protection/redundancy mechanisms (e.g., at the MPEG layer)
        • IPTV interworking between wireline-based distribution networks and wireless
           access networks.

• Phase 1 Architecture Reference Model – October 2006

                    DRM Task Force

       environment requirement specification
     – Scope: for initial receiving set-top box or digital video recorder in
       customer premises (home, business, etc.).

• Requirements for sharing to other devices on premises to be
  addressed next.

               QoSM Task Force
• QoSM Requirements document addressing
   –   Quality of Customer Experience (QoE)
   –   Head End
   –   Access

          Services- Service-Neutral Architecture and Protocol Requirements)
        • ATIS document ATIS-0300075.1 (Usage Data management for Packet-Based
          Services-Service Neutral Protocol Specification for Billing Applications)
        • These are approved ANSI standards for trial use, and utilize the ipdr protocol.

• Benefit to and the industry: Provides expedited
  incorporation of ipdr protocol in appropriate national and international
  billing, accounting, and settlements standards.

                ATIS - process
• collects IPTV requirements for protocol and encoding on billing and
    accounting related issues. These requirements are used to enhance the IPDR
    documents for IPTV.

• provides protocol and encoding requirements to ATIS committees.

•   ATIS committees (TMOC, IIF and OBF), working with, develop
    IPTV-specific supplement to TMOC requirements documents for all packet-
    based services and incorporate information into the IIF Reference Architecture.

•   ATIS committees define intercompany business applications for IPTV
    billing/accounting and settlements, ensuring compatibility with TMOC
    architecture interface protocol and requirement specifications for packet based

•   ATIS committees obtain international standardization from the ITU where
