ATIS releases IPTV high-level architecture

The Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions (ATIS) has released its IPTV High Level Architecture Standard (ATIS-0800007), developed by the ATIS IPTV Interoperability Forum (IIF).

The new standard provides a high-level architectural framework to enable end-to-end systems’ implementation and interoperability for supporting network design. It serves as a reference architecture for IPTV functional specifications being developed by the IIF.

The standard takes into consideration the architecture scaling from local to regional and national service offerings and identifies the components that will interface with each other to deliver IPTV. These include all interfaces between the service providers and network providers. The standard also includes considerations on Web-based approaches as well as IMS-based approaches.

With the high-level architecture completed, work on the specifications for the following areas is now under way:

  • Linear/broadcast TV service.
  • Consumer-domain initialization and attachment.
  • Media protocols.
  • Remote management of devices in the consumer domain.
  • An Emergency Alert System (EAS) for IPTV.
