Presentation Transcript
msf an overview
MSF: An Overview
  • International forum of global carriers, equipment vendors, high-tech companies
  • Define end-to-end service and system specifications for global networks
  • Showcase interoperability via GMI (Global MSF Interoperability) demonstrations
ip gains obstacles remain
IP Gains; Obstacles Remain
  • Is IP ready for prime time?
    • Promise of new services, new revenue streams
    • Massive investments in initiatives and equipment
  • IP obstacles
    • Unsophisticated Quality of Service (QoS)
    • Inadequate, inconsistent security
    • No end-to-end management
    • Inconsistent value-added experience
msf the value add
MSF: The Value-Add
  • Encourage a diverse community to work together productively
  • Identify and supply missing pieces in emerging telecom standards
  • Implement IAs for critical capabilities
    • Quality of Service (QoS)
    • Security
    • Multivendor value-added services
msf the value add con t
MSF: The Value-Add (con’t)
  • Enable global carriers to implement IP networks and services—profitably
  • Help global carriers extend the life of legacy investments
  • Publicly validate commercial viability of next-gen networks—using real carriers, real products, and real connections
  • Move industry closer to convergence
everybody wins
Everybody wins…
  • Global carriers gain new, revenue-generating IP services
  • Companies gain advanced IP services to streamline business
  • Consumers gain advanced IP services that make their lives simpler
validating interoperability
Validating Interoperability
  • GMI validations are among the most ambitious in the world
  •  GMI2002
    • 2 weeks of 24/7 networked testing
    • 3 sites on 3 continents
    • Validates Release 1 of MSF architectural framework
  •  Now, the MSF has completed GMI2004…
gmi2004 raises the bar
GMI2004 Raises the Bar
  • Builds on success of GMI2002
  • “Layers” on new functionality
    • QoS
    • IPv6
    • Value-added services
    • Security
  • Validates Release 2 of MSF framework
the gmi2004 challenge
The GMI2004 Challenge
  • Two weeks of 24/7 testing
    • Three continents
    • Four countries
    • Five progressive test scenarios
    • Dozens of test engineers
    • Hundreds of networked devices
      • Core/edge routers, bandwidth managers, call servers, application servers…
value added services
Value-Added Services
  • GMI2004 demonstrates that properly engineered IPv4/IPv6 packet networks can deliver a range of value-added services:
    • IP conferencing
    • Originating/terminating screening
    • Click to connect/conference
    • Emergency connection/call report
    • Continuous retry
    • Number translation
    • Voicemail media processing
    • Video telephony
the qos conundrum
The QoS Conundrum
  • Carriers want to migrate to packet networks
  • Call quality must be guaranteed
  • Emergency calls must be given priority
  • Network overload/packet discards must be avoided
  • Delay-sensitive voice can’t wait for network to reroute around congestion
qos the msf way
QoS: The MSF Way
  • Two QoS mechanisms
    • MPLS traffic engineering
    • DiffServ traffic engineering
  • Guaranteed capacity for specific call volume
  • Bandwidth managers prevent overloads
  • Call servers recognize priority calls
participants in gmi2004
Participants in GMI2004…
  • Showcased their success deploying a global multiservice, multivendor network
  • Extended their reach into new markets
  • Built close relationships with peers, customers, and suppliers
participants in gmi2004 con t
Participants in GMI2004… (con’t.)
  • Proved their commitment to building best-of-breed products
  • Earned a high-profile position in the move to IP-based global networks
