  11. 11. Improving Access/Architecture Requirements  TR-126 documented the requirements for IPTV (both standard definition and high-definition) – This work was extensively liaised to standards bodies like ATIS and ITU who used it to inform much of their own work in this area.  TR-101 provided: – Blueprint for how to build a multiservice/triple-play broadband network and includes the functional requirements of all the key network elements (Residential Gatey/DSL router, Access Node/DSLAM, aggregation network and Broadband Network Gateway (BNG). – Functional requirements to cover the capabilities needed to deliver IPTV with multicast and QoS (see also TR-92 for more background on BNG QoS requirements such as hierarchical scheduling).  TR-101 architecture is currently being extended to encompass GPON access via WT-156. 11
  12. 12. Performance is key  Given a good architecture like TR-101 and good design implementation and capacity management then the delivery of IPTV over the core and aggregation networks should be well assured.  Then, the most likely root cause for IPTV QoE problems experienced by an end-user is likely to be the DSL line (copper) or home network.  Hence the Broadband Forum has put a huge amount of effort into the performance requirements and associated testing of the DSL layer transmission systems – TR-100 for ADSL2plus and – WT-114/WT 115 for VDSL2 12

TR-140: Storage Data Model 13
  14. 14. Quality Standards for the Home Work in development  More recent work is addressing QoS in home networks (in conjunction with HGI – Home Gateway Initiative). – Extend the geographic coverage of IPTV by extolling the virtues of various transmission approaches that can give improvements (PD-180). – Specific recommendations for DSLAM profiles to be used to deliver IPTV over ADSL2plus (WT-176).  Service providers are seeking to improve their business case for IPTV over DSL by enabling end-users to self- install the equipment. – It is important that this is done correctly to ensure the appropriate IPTV QoE is not compromised by such an installation. – Hence we are producing an IPTV Installation best practice guidelines in this area (PD-179). 14

  16. 16. Conclusion - Broadband Forum’s Role Industry Need DSL Forum Work Improvements in Speed Test Plans and Events to improve interoperability of various speed options Current work on VDSL2 test suite (WT-114, WT- 115) Improvements in Network Quality TR- 126: Compendium of measurements and provision guidelines to ensure quality of experience of certain applications TR-101: Migration solution to move from ATM access aggregation to IP Ethernet Simplifying management of the BroadbandHome family of TRs (TR-69, etc) Digital home New Common Object Models- STB, Storage, VoIP, etc Self Installation best practices IPTV takes center stage Speed, quality experience and management enhancements are taking broadband service delivery to a new level of excellence 16
  17. 17. Next Steps for our work in Triple Play  The Future of gateway/modem requirements – Broadband Forum will continue to add additional interface feature modules to maintain current with RG market demands  Add new features or network devices as service deployments require  Add new WAN/LAN interfaces as they are introduced to market (e.g. Bluetooth, GPON, WiMAX, etc.)  Full QoS in BroadbandHome – Refine Home Network Reference Model – Extend Broadband Forum Network Requirements (TR-059) to the Home – Adopt/Leverage QoS Specifications defined by other standards groups such as UPnP, DLNA, IETF, HGI  Continue to align with the industry – In regards to IPTV / Triple Play specifically, coordinate closely with ITU-T (SG9/SG11/SG12/SG13/SG15/SG16), ATIS IIF, UPnP Forum and DLNA to ensure we are closing any technical gaps within our remit and we are not duplicating any efforts 17
  18. 18. Strategic objectives overview
