      Telecom Industry Trends


Market
   Desire for both flat-rate and usage-based billing
   Complex content/connectivity partnerships deliver
    value-added services
   Industry mergers and acquisitions

Technology
   Opportunity for convergent networks
   Rapid service evolution
   Diverse accounting requirements of next-
    generation services
To Collect or Not to Collect…

A product manager in a service
  provider near you…


            “Wow – what a cool new
              offering I’ve thought up…
            This will generate millions in
              new revenues!”
Service Usage and Billing
The Solution?
    The Solution: Internet Protocol Detail Record
              Organization (IPDR.org)




Mission
   To enable cost-effective usage measurement and
    exchange for next-generation services.

Method
   Implement de-facto open standards for IP-based
    support system interoperability, enabling providers
    to deploy next-generation services rapidly and
    profitably.

           IPDR v3 Reference Code


   Read/write IPDRs as easily as plain text
   Supports all IPDR flavors
   Available in C and Java
   Liberal license permits use and modification
   Simple API’s hide complex logic:
     Read foreign schemas to absorb custom IPDR records
     Manage rolling log files and automatic updates to
      partner systems
    Streaming IPDR for Network
            Equipment

   v3.5 adds Streaming IPDR:
     Enhanced interface for high-speed equipment
      eliminates file management
     Real-time, reliable, efficient transport

   Joint projects refine and apply service specs for
    manufacturer communities
     Cable Labs
     IPCC (?)
     3GPP (?)
    IPDR for Inter-Carrier Exchange


   NDM-U technology fully supports exchange
    scenarios.
   Key work today: Public WLAN Roaming
   Joint work ensures support of existing settlements
    networks and technologies
      ATIS OBF EMI settlement - TMOC
      ITU-T Study Group 3
      CIBERNET mappings to CIBER and MXP
      Other open dialogs: GSM TADIG, ETIS, etc.
A Few IPDR Partners

   ATIS recognized IPDR as one of 5 top partners
    and technology providers and offers proprietary
    EMI mappings.
   CableLabs employs IPDR in the DOCSIS standard
    used by every cable modem worldwide.
   CIBERnet participates in the IPDR WLANAS effort
    and offers proprietary IPDR VOIP mappings.
   ITU-T Study Group 3 officially recognizes IPDR
    as a technology provider for VOIP.

   TMF has used IPDR in multiple Catalyst
    interoperability projects.

   WFA recognizes IPDR WLANAS as the preferred
    medium for inter-industry PWLAN roaming.
                    Recapitulation

   Usage metering is overly complex; standards
    provide the solution
   IPDR NDM-U v3 is tried and proven
   What can you do?

The Model Driven IPDR Approach


Data Model
   Service       • Service Definition
    Service
  Definition      (Subset of W3C XML-Schema 1.0)
   Definition


                 Alternative Encoding:
                 • XML Document
   Service       • XDR based binary encoding
Data Encoding    • Others (e.g. RADIUS, Diameter AVP)


                 Alternative Transport:
   Service       • File based exchange (of XML or XDR)
Data Transport   • Streaming (XDR only)
                 • Others (e.g. RADIUS UDP, Diameter TCP/SCTP)

                 WLANAS Benefits

   Overall PWLAN industry profits depend on convenient
    roaming and revenue-sharing.
     Customer-benefit of “silo” PWLAN is limited
     PWLAN Settlement permits operators to expand footprint
      with minimal CAPEX.
   IPDR WLANAS is the only group focused on cross-industry
    public WLAN settlement.
     Supports native environments for every class of operator in
      PWLAN: GSM, CDMA, WISP, ISP, and Wireline.
     Opens every public hotspot worldwide to PWLAN users.
     Helps resolve technical limitations of cross-industry RADIUS
      interoperability.
   Supports variety of price schemes implemented on
    different continents by different types of operators.
