 Summary
    •   IPTV standards have progressed to evolve from architectural scope and broadcast services
        to more advanced services and capabilities
    •   Delivery of Internet content is currently being undertaken – some variance across Internet
    •   Open security and secure DRM solutions for IPTV are critical challenges
    •   Future IPTV standards must continue to evolve to meet dynamic environment defined by
        NGN Convergence, IMS and web-based services and applications-oriented model
    •   Emerging device capabilities (e.g. 3D), expanding network capabilities (e.g. CDNs) and new
        applications like targeted advertising are driving new IPTV requirements
    •   It is important to ensure the alignment of IPTV architectures and interfaces with global
        aspects; and to continue to work cooperatively with external organizations, especially with
        the ITU-T on aligning and coordinating efforts and work products
    •   As IPTV standardization continues to progress, Interoperability events are critical to the
        needs of the market, as SDOs pursue harmonization and seek to avoid fragmentation
    •   IPTV standards must be sufficiently flexible to support unique needs of countries, service
        areas and regulatory frameworks
    •   New market requirements and standardization activities related to mobile applications of
        IPTV highlights the need for cooperation and information exchange across relevant SDOs

   Main observations
    •   M2M is a quickly emerging market driven by telecom operators, integrators,
        vendors, semi-conductor makers and regulatory
    •   M2M is becoming mainstream via major applications like Smart Meters, Smart Grid,
        eHealth, City Automation, Connected Consumer, Telematics to the Internet of
        Services, Things and Objects
    •   Many M2M standardization activities are spread over the globe
    •   Strong need for coordination of M2M standardization to avoid creating a multitude of
        non compatible M2M standards and keeping a good alignment between standards
        and market needs
   Resolution
    •   A new Resolution draft (GSC-15-PLEN-83rev1) proposes to establish a M2M
        Standardization Task Force to coordinate across interested PSOs. A drafting group
        to be set up to discuss offline, update the draft for decision by the closing plenary

         Service Oriented Networks
 Presentations
  • 2 SON contributions from CCSA (60) and ATIS (81).
 Summary
  • Frameworks facilitate integration and adaptation of service enablers
       A minimum set of common functions is required in the framework
       These frameworks allow interworking across technologies: IMS, SOA,
        Web 2.0, Cloud, etc.
  • Service Providers use the framework to integrate service
    inventories into multiple products
  • Support for flexible reuse of service enablers allows the same
    functions to be used for multiple retail and wholesale products
  • Service Oriented Networks are structured cloud implementations
 Resolution
  • Proposed new Resolution from ATIS (GSC15-PLEN-86)
                     Cloud Computing
 Presentations
   • Significant interest in cloud computing including 5 presentations from ETSI
     (61), ISAAC (62), ITU (63), TTA (64r1), and ATIS (82r2).
 Summary
   • There is a consistent high level understanding of cloud definition.
        The layers of IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS are widely recognized
   • There are many existing proprietary implementations.
        Implementable solutions of IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS are inconsistent and
        Many service components already exist but gaps are not clear because of
         multiple taxonomies
   • Standardizing taxonomy and identifying
        Cloud layers are more valuable if they are interoperable and consistent:
         standardized building blocks.
        Develop consistent requirements for cloud
        Focused effort on normalizing taxonomy
 Resolution
   • Proposed new Resolution from ISAAC (GSC15-PLEN-76)                             18
                New and Novel
 Policy Management Standards
  • ATIS provided a summary of the results of the ATIS
    Policy Management Focus Group (PM-FG). Service
    convergence is highlighting the importance of policy
    management to provide consistent performance for
    users across all technologies. In addition, rapid
    growth in data usage makes it important to use policy
    to efficiently utilize all available resources. Policy
    standards work identified in the PM-FG will continue
    to be progressed in 3GPP and in ATIS PTSC.
    Applications centric policy requirements will be
    considered in the next stage of this work.
