References and Standardization Bodies

The semantic IPTV infrastructure is designed to be compliant to relevant standards. Especially standards from the following standardization bodies are supported and/or implemented.

  • Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF)
    The IETF is a large open international community of network designers, operators, vendors, and researchers concerned with the evolution of the Internet architecture and the smooth operation of the Internet.
      Our focus relies on SIP and related protocol standards as well as the fundamental mechanisms for support of IPTV such as the protocols for the control of video streaming and of multicast flows.
    • 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP)
      The  3GPP is a collaboration of standards organizations, whose purpose is to prepare, approve, and maintain globally applicable Technical Specifications and Technical Reports.
        In our studies we focus on the 3GPP specifications for an evolved IMS developed in an access independent manner.
      • European Telecommunication Standards Institute (ETSI)
        The European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) produces globally-applicable standards for Information and Communications Technologies (ICT), including fixed, mobile, radio, converged, broadcast and Internet technologies.
          Our focus relies on the NGN standardization activities of the ETSI. Especially on the technical committee TISPAN that has adopted the 3GPP core IMS specifications using Internet (SIP) protocols to allow features such as Presence, IPTV, Messaging, and Conferencing to be delivered irrespective of the network in use.
        • Open Mobile Alliance (OMA)
          OMA is the leading industry forum for developing market driven, interoperable mobile service enablers. OMA service enabler specifications provide interoperability across different devices, geographies, service providers, operators, and networks.
            We focus on OMA specifications to build reusable and interoperable application layer components for our infrastructure.
          • Universal Plug and Plug (UPnP)
            UPnP describes a set of computer network protocols propagated by the UPnP-Forum. The goal is to connect different devices easily and to simplify the implementation of network in the domain of ambient homes or corporate environments.
          • Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA)
            The Digital Living Network Alliance is an international, cross-industry collaboration of consumer electronics, computing industry and mobile device companies.
          • Open IPTV Forum
            Open IPTV Forum was created in March 2007, to provide an IPTV solution enabling a plug and play experience for the end-users and filling a industry gap making it independent from the technology behind it.

          Detailed information about standards supported by our components are listed in the datasheets.
