Private Integrated Services Network (PISN); Mapping functions for the tunnelling of QSIG through H.323 networks

Published by: 2004-03-01 / 2004-03-01 / 26 pages
The present document specifies functions for using an H.323 packet network in order to interconnect two Private
Integrated services Network eXchanges (PINXs) forming part of a Private Integrated Services Network (PISN).
Interconnection is achieved by carrying the inter-PINX signalling protocol over the H.323 call signalling channel,
making use of the protocol tunnelling facilities of H.323, and inter-PINX user information (e.g. voice) over logical
channels established through H.323. Each logical channel usually represents a unidirectional media stream conveyed by
means of the Real-time Tranport Protocol (RTP). The inter-PINX signalling protocol is assumed to be QSIG, as
specified in ECMA-143 [2], ECMA-165 [3] and other standards.

The present document provides for an on-demand type of interconnection, where a separate H.323 call is established at
the start of each PISN call and cleared down at the end of that call. A semi-permanent scenario where a single H.323
call with an indefinite lifetime carries QSIG on behalf of many PISN calls is described as an additional option.

In the scenarios covered in the present document, the PINXs participating in a call are not necessarily aware of the
H.323 network providing the interconnection, and the features available are those of the QSIG network. This is different
from a scenario where true interworking between QSIG and H.323 (i.e. QSIG-H.323-QSIG) is used to connect two
PISNs or two parts of the same PISN. In this latter case all networks participate in a call on equal terms, and features are
limited to those available in all networks and supported by the gateways. This latter scenario is outside the scope of the
present document.

The present document is applicable to PINXs that can be interconnected to form a PISN using QSIG as the inter-PINX
signalling protocol.

Digital Video Broadcasting (DVB); Multimedia Home Platform (MHP) Specification 1.0.3

Published by: 2006-08-01 / 2006-08-01 / 787 pages
The present document defines the DVB solution for Multimedia Home Platforms (MHPs) that was developed to fulfil the
related DVB commercial requirements MHP045 [A]. It relies on the use of appropriate DVB specifications for digital
video broadcast and associated interactive services ETSI TR 101 200 [47]. The MHP is applicable to all DVB defined
transmission media and networks such as satellite, cable, terrestrial, microwave.

The final DVB MHP solution is intended to cover the whole range of implementations including Integrated Receiver
Decoders (IRDs), integrated TV sets, multimedia computers and local clusters of such devices connected via In-Home
Digital Networks (IHDN). This first release focuses on single MHP terminals and does not include such local clusters.
Chapters 1-14 specify the applicable technologies and technical definitions in a generic way. Chapter 15 provides
detailed profile definitions for the initial profiles Enhanced Broadcasting 1 and Interactive Broadcasting 1, which can be
extended with future additional profile definitions.

This specification is firstly intended for implementers of MHPs on various hardware and software platforms. Secondly it
is intended for developers of applications that use the MHP functionality and APIs.

The MHP specification aims to ensure interoperability between MHP applications and different MHP implementations.
Implementers should consult the publisher of this specification regarding conformance.

NOTE: This specification defines the interfaces visible to applications. Application developers should not
assume that other related interfaces are available unless they are specifically listed.

Digital Broadband Cable Access to the Public Telecommunications Network; IP Multimedia Time Critical Services; Part 4: Network Call Signalling Protocol [Partial Endorsement of ITU-T Recommendation J.162 (11/2005), modified]

Published by: 2006-08-01 / 2006-08-01 / 28 pages
The present document is a multi-part deliverable belonging to IPCablecom. The present part (part 4) specifies a profile
of an application programming interface, Media Gateway Controller Interface (MGCI), and a corresponding protocol,
Media Gateway Control Protocol (MGCP), for controlling Voice over IP (VoIP) embedded clients from external call
control elements. The MGCP is based on a call control architecture, where the call control “intelligence” resides outside
the gateways and is handled by external call control elements. The profile, as described in the present document, is
referred to as the Network Call Signalling (NCS) Protocol.

Annex B of the present document specifies an expansion of the NCS protocol to emulate an Access Node of an ETSI
compliant local exchange. This annex specifies the mapping of expansion of the NCS protocol to V5.2.

Annex F of the present document specifies optional NCS components for the delivery of metering pulses.

This multi-part deliverable specifies IPCablecom, a set of protocols and associated element functional requirements.
These have been developed to deliver high Quality of Service (QoS), enhanced secure IP multimedia time critical
communication services to a consumer’s home over a cable television Hybrid Fibre/Coaxial (HFC) data network.

NOTE 1: IPCablecom defines a set of documents in the framework of a network superstructure that overlays the
two-way data-ready cable television network, e.g. as specified within ES 201 488 [5] and ES 200 800 [3].
While the initial service offerings in the IPCablecom product line are anticipated to be Packet Voice and Packet Video,
the long-term project vision encompasses a large family of packet-based services. This may require in the future, not
only careful maintenance control but also an extension of the present set of documents.

NOTE 2: The present set of documents aims for global acceptance and applicability. It is therefore developed in
alignment with standards either already existing or under development in other regions and in
International Telecommunications Union (ITU).

NOTE 3: There may also be relevant equivalent studies on-going in IETF or ITU specific to the needs of European
IPCablecom. Where possible ETSI TC AT-D working group for IPCablecom should align annex B
package annex or similar packages addressing the specific needs of European IPCablecom with work on
going in IETF, Cablelabs, or the ITU.

ETSI TR 123 039

Digital cellular telecommunications system (Phase 2+); Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS); Interface Protocols for the Connection of Short Message Service Centers (SMSCs) to Short Message Entities (SMEs) (3GPP TR 23.039 version 5.0.0 Release 5)

Published by: 2002-06-01 / 2002-06-01 / 9 pages
The present document describes a range of alternative interfaces which may be utilised by Short Message Service Centre (SMSC), and Short Message Entity (SME), developers for the connection of SMEs to SMSCs.

The purpose of the present document is to provide a single document within which the various proprietary SMSC to SME interface standards may be accommodated as optional implementations.

As stated in 3GPP TS 23.040 [1], the functionality of the SMSC is outside of the scope of the 3GPP Technical Specifications. As a result, no standardised interfaces have been specified for the connection of SMEs to the SMSC. In the absence of a prevailing standard, SC (Service Centre), developers have devised their own protocols which have not necessarily been based on any existing standards and are therefore largely incompatible with one another.

This document by referring to the various de-facto protocols will limit the further proliferation of proprietary standards and will benefit new SC/SME developers who may then adopt one or more of the existing protocols outlined in the present document.

This document does not provide recommendations, as to the preferred protocol implementation as all are regarded as being of equal merit. SC/SME implementors should therefore adopt the protocol most suited to their particular implementation, application or market.
