With the introduction of Next Generation Networks to telecommunications carrier infrastructures, customers expect a full range of Triple Play services. These include High-Speed Internet Access, Voice Telephony and Television delivered over the same network interface. Existing infrastructures often contain copper loops that must be used to deploy these services. There are several key challenges to delivering IPTV. It will be necessary to deliver TV quality that can match existing over-the-air and cable delivery. It will be necessary to ensure that all services can be delivered together and will not significantly affect the performance of other services. The TV service must be designed, sized and built so that it can grow profitably as take-up increases and can evolve as the technology develops. To meet these challenges a good understanding of IPTV technology is vital.
This course will deliver a comprehensive understanding of the IPTV technology, covering major aspects of the IPTV standard from a business, network. service, architecture, hardware, software, protocols and platforms perspective. It will include practical demonstrations of IPTV transport, Web access and voice active together over a classroom network. It will study practical experiences of early IPTV deployments and consider the sizing, performance and reliability aspects of IPTV service delivery. It will also demonstrate how IPTV transports can be captured and their quality analyzed for monitoring performance. It will further demonstrate how reliable services can be delivered to match defined service criteria.
