  21. 21. IP Multimedia Subsystem - Suparna
  22. 22. Introduction to IMS <ul><li>IMS stands for IP Multimedia Subsystem </li></ul><ul><li>IMS is a key enabler of Fixed-Mobile Convergence </li></ul><ul><li>IMS is an architecture that merges the applications and capabilities of the Internet with both wireless and wire line telephony, and promotes fixed/mobile convergence. </li></ul><ul><li>An IMS/SIP approach enables both voice and data applications to run over IP, rather than locking it into the mobile carriers' legacy networks . </li></ul>
  23. 23. Layered Approach <ul><li>Access Network </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Transport ( Connectivity) layer </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Core Network </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Control Layer </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Service Layer </li></ul></ul>
  24. 24. IMS Architecture Overview
  25. 25. Functional Architecture
  26. 26. Horizontal Integration of IMS
  27. 27. Advantages of Horizontal Integration <ul><li>Service Enablers and common functions can be reused for multiple operations </li></ul><ul><li>Operations competence required is more generic </li></ul><ul><li>Helps to provide interoperability and reaming and other such functions more economically to the consumer </li></ul>
  28. 28. Interoperability in IMS
  29. 29. Advantages over Existing Systems <ul><li>The core network is independent of a particular access technology ( GSM, WCDMA, CDMA and also WLAN) </li></ul><ul><li>Integrated mobility for all network applications </li></ul><ul><li>Easier migration of applications from fixed to mobile users </li></ul><ul><li>Faster deployment of new services based on standardized architecture </li></ul>

  34. 35. FMC using SIP
  35. 36. FMC using SIP <ul><li>FMC solutions aimed at wireline operators take an opposite approach from those aimed at wireless providers </li></ul><ul><li>Wireline-oriented FMC solutions are based on SIP standards </li></ul><ul><li>SIP approach has benefits since SIP has already entered the emerging wireless network (via 3GPP) and is inherently compatible with IMS architecture </li></ul>
  36. 37. INTRODUCTION to SIP <ul><li>H.323 protocol </li></ul><ul><li>Session initiation protocol </li></ul><ul><li>SIP considered to be a simpler, more flexible alternative to H.323 with the ability to support advanced services. </li></ul>
  37. 38. What is SIP <ul><li>SIP or Session Initiation Protocol is an application-level control protocol for setting up, changing and terminating multimedia sessions between participants on IP data networks. </li></ul><ul><li>SIP is a text-based protocol, similar to HTTP and SMTP, for initiating interactive communication sessions between users. Such sessions include voice, video, chat, interactive games, and virtual reality. </li></ul>

  47. 48. SIP in IMS
  48. 49. SIP based FMC solution
  49. 50. SIP in FMC <ul><li>FMC is likely to bring to reality the following scenarios hitherto considered impossible. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A cell phone user may start receiving calls on his SIP home phone when he enters his home, saving spectrum and charges for the ‘home roaming usage’. This kind of hand-off is both extremely non-intrusive and cost beneficial. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Enterprise subscribers may roam their mobile number into a business environment via one to many SIP devices. This may be offered by a service bureau as a managed service . </li></ul></ul>
  50. 51. Contd… <ul><li>Enterprise subscribers may roam their mobile numbers in their enterprise network via one to several SIP devices. This further establishes that none of the existing infrastructure will be rendered a waste. </li></ul><ul><li>Mobile subscribers may continue enjoying all enhanced services available on their home PLMN networks in any roaming network they are visiting and on their landline networks as well. </li></ul><ul><li>Mobile subscribers may seamlessly roam between locations with calls transparently following them irrespective of whether they are in a cable zone or a public WiFi hot spot. </li></ul>
  51. 52. UMA
  52. 53. What is UMA? <ul><li>Unlicensed Mobile Access </li></ul><ul><li>Unlicensed Mobile Access (UMA) technology provides access to GSM and GPRS mobile services over unlicensed spectrum technologies, including Bluetooth and 802.11. </li></ul><ul><li>It establishes a standard for seamless hand-off and roaming between a cellular network and fixed IP-based wireless networks . </li></ul>
  53. 54. UMA (Unlicensed Mobile Access) <ul><li>UMA lets mobile operators deliver voice, data and IMS/SIP(IP Multi media Subsystem /Session Initiated Protocol) applications to mobile phones on Wi-Fi access network using dual-mode mobile handsets. </li></ul><ul><li>In order to promote the widespread adoption of UMA technology, a number of leading companies within the wireless industry have jointly developed a set of open specifications. </li></ul>
  54. 55. UMA Protocols <ul><li>UMA is on top of it at the transport layer (Layer 4) and has its own set of control protocols . </li></ul>
  55. 56. UNC <ul><li>The UMA specification is based around UNC. </li></ul><ul><li>What is UNC??? </li></ul><ul><li>A UMA Network Controller (UNC) acts as a virtual base station, </li></ul><ul><li>providing handoff </li></ul><ul><li>between cellular </li></ul><ul><li>and Wi-Fi networks. </li></ul>
  56. 57. Cellular /UMA
  57. 58. How UMA Technology Works <ul><li>A mobile subscriber with a UMA-enabled, dual-mode handset moves within range of an unlicensed wireless network to which the handset is allowed to connect. </li></ul><ul><li>Upon connecting, the handset contacts the UMA Network Controller (UNC) over the broadband IP access network to be authenticated and authorized to access GSM voice and GPRS data services via the unlicensed wireless network. </li></ul>
  58. 59. (Contd..) <ul><li>If approved, the subscriber’s current location information stored in the core network is updated, and from that point on all mobile voice and data traffic is routed to the handset via the Unlicensed Mobile Access Network (UMAN) rather than the cellular radio access network (RAN). </li></ul>
  59. 60. Roaming <ul><li>When a UMA-enabled subscriber moves outside the range of an unlicensed wireless network to which they are connected, the UNC and handset facilitate roaming back to the licensed outdoor network. This roaming process is completely transparent to the subscriber. </li></ul>
  60. 61. Handover <ul><li>Handover in: </li></ul><ul><li>The mobile station moves from macro network to a UMAN. </li></ul><ul><li>Handover out: </li></ul><ul><li>The mobile station moves from UMAN to macro network. </li></ul><ul><li>Handover UMA: </li></ul><ul><li>The mobile station moves with in a UMAN or from UMAN to UMAN. </li></ul>
  61. 62. Handoff Specifications <ul><li>Subject to mode selection, UMA shall support seamless handover in and handover out ,provided the following conditions are true: </li></ul><ul><li>The mobile station stays within the limits of service (pedestrian state of motion) </li></ul><ul><li>The mobile station remains during the time of handover within the coverage of both the networks. </li></ul><ul><li>UMA shall manage bandwidth during handover between macro network and UMAN. </li></ul>
  62. 64. Security in UMA <ul><li>Different security mechanism operate at different levels: </li></ul><ul><li>MS to AP – UMA does not mandate any security mechanism, but can coexist with those available, such WPA, WPA2, or WEP. </li></ul><ul><li>MS to UNC – The UNC includes a security gateway that provides mutual authentication and encryption for the traffic across the WLAN and the broadband connection. </li></ul><ul><li>MS to core mobile network – The encryption and authentication methods used by the MS when using the GERAN are also used to protect UMA connections. </li></ul><ul><li>MS to application server – An additional end-to-end data application mechanism (for example, HTTPS) may be used if needed. </li></ul>
  63. 65. Advantages Availability &Pricing <ul><li>UMA could be used to provide better in-building coverage for customers who don't get a good cellular signal in some areas, including basements. </li></ul><ul><li>It enables service providers to deliver voice at a lower cost when handsets are within range of an unlicensed wireless network. </li></ul>
  64. 66. Issues <ul><li>If a customer doesn't have a wireless network already in the house, a wireless access point would be needed in addition to a broadband link . </li></ul><ul><li>The most expensive and technologically challenging component of UMA solution is the Wi-Fi and cellular handset, because of battery-life limitations, cost, and size . </li></ul><ul><li>UMA cannot guarantee the quality of a voice call or the throughput of a data connection and traffic prioritization with QoS can significantly improve performance, especially in a residential environment where traffic is likely to be less heavy than in the enterprise. </li></ul>http:// =368
  65. 67. Conclusion: <ul><li>FMC will mean a greater flexibility, more freedom, lower costs and simplified communications and is more advance than many other technologies by giving the user best of both worlds. </li></ul>
