Requirements for information control networks and related applications
|Publication Date:||1 February 2016|
This Recommendation deals with information control networks (ICN) that provide services utilizing digital television (TV) infrastructure, focused on high-reliable data transfer, service management and traffic control.
ICN allows the organization of a trusted environment for the provisioning of mission-critical services, such as emergency management, e-government, e-commerce, e-health, by introducing the ICN operator as a single point of service management.
This Recommendation provides a description and general characteristics of ICN applications, i.e., applications which use the capabilities of ICN. It also describes requirements of ICN applications and, based on the identified requirements, specifies extended or new next generation network (NGN) capability requirements with respect to the NGN capabilities as described in [ITU-T Y.2201].
The scope of this Recommendation includes:
− an overview of ICN including business roles for the provisioning of ICN applications;
− general characteristics of ICN applications;
− requirements of ICN applications;
− requirements of extended or new NGN capabilities based on the requirements of ICN applications.
NOTE - This Recommendation covers the requirements of NGN capabilities for support of ICN applications (typical deployment of ICN with NGN). The capability requirements of the whole ICN infrastructure (the digital television infrastructure is also used in a typical deployment of ICN) are out of scope of this Recommendation.
