Cross-layer Monitoring in IPTV NetworkS

TELE 9752 – Network Operations & Control Group Presentation

Week 12 – S2, 2013


  • Introduction

  • Aims and Challenges - Why

  • Monitoring Metrics - What

  • In-network & Client-side Monitoring – How & Where

  • The ALICANTE Monitoring Approach

  • Conclusion and Our Opinion


IPTV: Delivery of multimedia content over IP-based networks

with guaranteed quality of service – paid service.

  • Why IPTV business is so attractive?

  • IPTV must compete with traditional TV delivery systems.

  • Very high reliability and QoS/QoE.









Traditional TV

To achieve comparable QoS/QoE IPTV needs:

Integrated service &

network management

Real-time monitoring

  • Monitoring must cover all layers in all system segments.

  • Cross-layer monitoring is essential!

Even Small Impairments should be detected and mitigated.

  • Hierarchical structure

Service Assurance for IPTV

Required Functionalities of an IPTV Monitoring System

  • Reactive

    • Response of the monitoring system to an abnormal situation.

  • Proactive

    • Behaviour of the monitoring system under normal operation.

Monitoring metrics

  • Cross-layer Monitoring

  • Parameters monitored in IPTV network:

    • User/QoE Metrics

      • User Perception

  • Application Metrics

    • During Decoding and Presentation

  • Transport/Network Metrics

    • Performance of the Corresponding Protocols

  • Other:

    • Protocol-Specific Metrics

      • FEC

  • User Behavior Metrics

  • In network monitoring
    In-network monitoring

    • Within the Distribution Network, Core, Edge, and Access.

    • Needs to be distinguished from overall network monitoring.

    • Mainly collects:

      • Transport/Network Metrics e.g. Packet Loss and Jitter

    • Packet filtering and sampling is often used due to huge traces.

    • Retrieval of measured metrics:

      • SNMP, IPFIX(Avoid overhead of SNMP/syslog)

      • Modern Routers and Switches

    • Higher-Layer Metrics

      • Application/Stream

      • Probe Modules

        • Number of Probes: Detection of Issue Vs. Cost and Complexity

        • Active Monitoring  Imposed Load /Traffic on the Network

    Client side monitoring

    • Performed at 3 points:

    Maximization of QoS and QoE of media services is achieved.

    • a) via dynamic adaptation of media streams, taking place in the network and also at the edges.

    • b) via content-aware mechanisms in the network, performing automatic service recognition and differentiation.

    alicante monitoring

    • Four sets of cross-layer metrics are identified corresponding to different elements:

    • Key feature: Decentralized Monitoring.


    • Thorough monitoring can only be achieved through cross-layer monitoring.

    • All domains involved in IPTV service provisioning must be monitored.

    • The Alicante monitoring approach is a practical implementation of the principles of end to end service monitoring.

    • Decentralized monitoring allows adaptive management and promotes collaboration among actors and across domains.

    Our own opinions
    our own opinions

    • Lack of experimental support for ideas presented in paper. The paper is more an opinion piece than a research paper.

    • Conclusions should include: Use of virtual networks allows data to be shared without exposing commercially sensitive information.
