  • 10 ITU-T definition of NGN (Y.2001, Feb 2004) A Next Generation Network (NGN) is a packet-based network able to provide services including Telecommunications Services and able to make use of multiple broadband, QoS-enabled transport technologies and in which service-related functions are independent from underlying transport-related technologies. It offers unrestricted access by users to different service providers. It supports generalized mobility which will allow consistent and ubiquitous provision of services to users. One of the primary goals of NGN is to provide a common, unified, and flexible service architecture that can support multiple types of services over multiple types of transport networks.
  • Slide 11
  • 11 NGN is the public packet-based network with the following main features: Layered architecture Open interfaces between the layers and all other networks Seamless control of multiple transport technologies Centralized intelligence
  • Slide 12
  • 12 NGN Characteristics The NGN is characterized by the following fundamental aspects: Packet-based transfer in the core NGN network Support for a wide range of services, applications and mechanisms (including real time/ streaming/ non-real time services and multi-media) Independence of service-related functions from underlying transport technologies Separation of control functions among bearer capabilities, call/session, and applications/services Broadband capabilities with required end-to-end QoS Interworking with legacy networks via open interfaces Generalized mobility Unrestricted access by users to different service providers Services convergence between Fixed/Mobile Compliance with all Regulatory requirements, for example concerning emergency communications, security/privacy, etc.

  • Slide 17
  • 17 NGN Services Voice Telephony NGN will likely need to support various existing voice telephony services (e.g., Call Waiting, Call Forwarding, 3-Way Calling, various IN features, various Centrex features and etc.). Data Services Allows for the real-time establishment of connectivity between endpoints, along with various value-added features Multimedia Services Allows multiple parties to interact using voice, video, and/or data. Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) Voice VPNs improve the interlocation networking capabilities of businesses by allowing large, geographically dispersed organizations to combine their existing private networks with portions of the PSTN, thus providing subscribers with uniform dialing capabilities..

  • 18 NGN Services Public Network Computing (PNC) Provides public network-based computing services for businesses and consumers. Unified Messaging Supports the delivery of voice mail, email, fax mail, and pages through common interfaces. Information Brokering Involves advertising, finding, and providing information to match consumers with providers. E-Commerce Allows consumers to purchase goods and services electronically over the network. Home banking and home shopping fall into this category of services. This also includes business-to-business applications
  • Slide 19
  • 19 NGN Services Call Center/Web Contact Services A subscriber could place a call to a call/Web contact center agent by clicking on a Web page. Interactive gaming Offers consumers a way to meet online and establish interactive gaming sessions (e.g., video games). Distributed Virtual Reality Refers to technologically generated representations of real world events, people, places, experiences, etc., Home Manager With the advent of in-home networking and intelligent appliances, these services could monitor and control home security systems, energy systems, home entertainment systems, and other home appliances.
