3rd IMS Plugtests / IPTV Plugtests


About the IPTV Plugtests

The ETSI TC TISPAN and the ETSI Centre for Testing & Interoperability are pleased to invite you to their first IPTV Plugtests™, organized with Orange Labs who are supplying the test network infrastructure, alongside the MultiService Forum (MSF), who are providing the basis for the interoperability test specification.

ETSI is the leading standards organization to have defined the integration of IPTV services in fixed next generation networks (NGN). ETSI's Technical Committee TISPAN (Telecoms & Internet converged Services & Protocols for Advanced Networking) has specified an IMS-based IPTV solution which provides a key end-user service: the blending of the TV services with other telecommunication services (e.g. voice, presence, and data services).

IPTV is anticipated to be a key enabler of NGN services and to facilitate the wide deployment of technologies such as IMS in the global market place.
This year ETSI will assess for the first time the interoperability of different IMS-based IPTV equipments based on ETSI TISPAN specifications.
The purposes of this event are:

  • To enable participants to assess the interoperability of their commercial IPTV user equipment, video media servers, application servers, RACS gateways and  IMS cores against an open agreed test specification in multi-vendor scenarios.
  • To assess the quality of and adherence of IPTV equipment to TISPAN IPTV Release 2 specifications and to provide feedback to TISPAN standardization.
  • To ease the introduction of IMS-based IPTV systems into the market place by providing the means to solve interoperability problems before widespread deployment.
  • To bring together IPTV equipment vendors as well as operators for constructive technical discussions.

In addition, an exhibition area will enable vendors to showcase their products to the entire Plugtests audience.
