WASHINGTON — ATIS today announced publication of the IP Services Interconnect Technical Report: Assessment of Requirements and Specifications. The document defines a strategy for developing an IP services interconnect specification suitable for all service provider types, including wireless, fixed and cable, and is designed to encompass basic, advanced and forward-looking services such as HD voice, video, messaging and data. The goal is to help operators simplify interconnection and interoperability between service providers for all IP-based services.
With widespread deployment of high-speed wireless and wired broadband networks, operators are migrating existing services such as voice and SMS into an all-IP network. This migration converges with introduction of new services such as HD voice and video communications. Leading standards development organizations, including IETF, ITU, 3GPP, PacketCable, GSMA, i3Forum, SIP Forum and the ATIS Packet Technologies and Systems Committee, are actively engaged in defining standards to address interoperability in the all-IP network. Many options exist across these overlapping standards. This new ATIS report makes a critical contribution toward identifying the core specifications essential to interconnection.
“The new IPSI report is a roadmap for advancing the industry’s IP-based interconnection capabilities beyond voice to support advanced multimedia communications services,” said ATIS President and CEO Susan M. Miller. “It is another of the many solutions ATIS is delivering to provide leadership in virtually all aspects of the IP transition.”
