A generic home network architecture with support for multimedia services
|Publication Date:||1 June 2008|
This Recommendation describes a generic home network architecture that is applicable to, including but not limited to, fibre-to-the-home (FTTH), xDSL and cable television (CATV). The architecture is designed to support a wide range of multimedia services such as Internet Protocol television (IPTV), IP-telephony and video telephony as well as legacy services, if needed. The goal of the architecture is to define functionalities and interfaces that support these services with the demanded level of quality of service (QoS), security and management capability in the home network domain based on [ITU-T J.190].
The home network specific to each access network can be defined based on functional entities and interfaces defined in this Recommendation.
This Recommendation uses the transmission functionality and demarcation point between the access network and the home network defined in [b-ITU-T G.9970] that contains more details about these aspects. Users of this Recommendation are encouraged to consider both Recommendations for complete understanding of the generic home network architecture.
