ETSI - TS 101 909-1
Digital Broadband Cable Access to the Public Telecommunications Network; IP Multimedia Time Critical Services; Part 1: General
|Publication Date:||1 December 2003|
The present set of documents specify IPCablecom, a set of protocols and associated element functional requirements. These have been developed to deliver Quality of Service (QoS), enhanced secure IP multimedia time critical communication services, using packetized data transmission technology to a consumer's home over a cable television Hybrid Fibre/Coaxial (HFC) data network.
NOTE 1: IPCablecom set of documents utilize a network superstructure that overlays the two-way data-ready cable television network, e.g. as specified within ES 201 488  and ES 200 800 .
While the initial service offerings in the IPCablecom product line are anticipated to be Packet Voice and Packet Video, the long-term project vision encompasses a large family of packet-based services. This may require in the future, not only careful maintenance control, but also an extension of the present set of documents.
NOTE 2: The present set of documents aims for global acceptance and applicability. It is therefore developed in alignment with standards either already existing or under development in other regions and in International Telecommunications Union (ITU).
The present document is part 1 of the above mentioned series of ETSI deliverables and specifies general aspects of IPCablecom based on J.16x and J.17x ITU-T series of Recommendations.
