What is an NGN?

ITU-T Definition
> Packet-based network > Provide various services including Telecommunication Services > Use multiple broadband, QoS-enabled transport technologies > Service-related functions are independent from underlying transport-related technologies. > Offers unrestricted access by users to different service providers > Generalized mobility allow consistent and ubiquitous provision of services to users

A vision implied:
> V arious Services accessed from A N Y W H E R E using A N Y D E VIC E

Circuit-Switch vs. Softswitch

Softswitch Call Control Open Protocols APIs

Transport Hardware

Solutions come from a single vendor that supplied everything in one proprietary box: software, hardware and applications Customers were locked-in to their vendorno room for innovation, expensive to implement and maintain

Solutions can come from multiple vendors, at all levels who supply open standards-based products Customers are free to choose best-in-class products to build their network. Open standards enable innovation and reduce costs

Why Softswitch based NGN ?

Bandwidth Saving:
> 64 K compare to 8 kbps (ITU G.729)
Saving about 7/8 = 87,5 % Increasing level of network optimization

Footprint comparison for 36.000 line


> PSTN : SS = 13 racks : 1 rack > 171.60 : 13.20 (converting for cost comparison)

Power consumption
> PSTN : SS = 600 A : 24 A > 62.40 : 4.80 (converting for cost comparison)

Quality & Performance


Interworking to Existing Network mostly OK (source: Fixed Network Forum)
> Softswitch inter working to PSTN should be no problem since CCS7 has been relatively stable > OSS should be no problem by using the existing communication scheme. > Transmission cost is challenged to decrease due to compression > Common access and transport layers for all future services are required
xDSL, HFC, wireless, SDH/DWDM that support multi interface protocol (IP/Ethernet, TDM, ATM, etc)

Data Analysis

IP Backbone should be managed (source: Fixed Network Forum)


> IP/packet Backbone for transport efficiency > MPLS implementation for better traffic engineering, real time services and extra VPN services to the customer

Vendor Services
All vendors provide telephony services that offer PSTN-like services Most of them fulfill with basic feature needed by Telkom. All vendors provide enhanced services with variation of types Most vendor support protocol MGCP, MEGACO, SIP and H.323
