Intellectual Property Rights

IPRs essential or potentially essential to the present document may have been declared to ETSI. The information

pertaining to these essential IPRs, if any, is publicly available for ETSI members and non-members, and can be found

in SR 000 314: "Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs); Essential, or potentially Essential, IPRs notified to ETSI in respect

of ETSI standards", which is available from the ETSI Secretariat. Latest updates are available on the ETSI Web server

(http://www.etsi.org/ipr).

Pursuant to the ETSI IPR Policy, no investigation, including IPR searches, has been carried out by ETSI. No guarantee

1 Scope

The present document provides an introduction to the technical issues relating to the work items defined in the terms of

reference of ETSI Project TIPHON [1] and offered with respect to the reference scenarios:

Scenario 0: communication between 2 or more Internet Protocol (IP) network based users in which the call signalling

and traffic are wholly contained within the IP network (in one or more domains).

Scenario 1: communication between IP network based users and Switched Circuit Network (SCN) based users in which

the call setup is originated by the IP network user.

Scenario 2: communication between IP network based users and SCN-based users in which the call setup is originated

by the SCN based user.

Scenario 3: communication between SCN based users using IP based networks for the connection/trunking between the

involved users.

Scenario 4: communication between IP network based users using SCNs for the connection/trunking between the

involved users.

TIPHON shall primarily consider, but not be restricted to, the interaction of H.323 terminals on IP networks with

telephone terminals on SCNs.

The TIPHON project shall develop standards, and profiles of existing standards, for each of the above profiles. New

standards shall be developed only where no existing standards exist. Where existing standards exist in ETSI, ITU or

elsewhere ETSI Project TIPHON shall work with the standards bodies in developing and promoting profiles of those

standards. These standards shall include an Open Settlement Protocol.

The TIPHON project shall not specify any new bearer services. However the TIPHON project deliverables shall be able

to request certain QoS constraints that may restrict the ability of any particular bearer service to support TIPHON

teleservices (particularly with respect to QoS and bandwidth).
The present document is structured as follows:
- clause 4 provides an overview of the TIPHON project work area; and

- clause 5 introduces and describes the reference scenarios of the TIPHON project.

The present document will not provide solutions for the technical issues that are identified therein.

3 Definitions and abbreviations
3.1 Definitions

For the purposes of the present document, the following terms and definitions apply.

bearer service: type of telecommunication service that provides the capability for the transmission of signals between

user-network interfaces. See ITU-T Recommendation I. 112 [2], subclause 2.2 definition 202

NOTE 1: The ISDN connection type used to support a bearer service may be identical to that used to support other

types of telecommunication service.

demand service, demand telecommunication service: type of telecommunication service in which the communication

path is established almost immediately, in response to a user request effected by means of user-network signaling

E.164 number: number conforming to the numbering plan and structure specified in ITU-T Recommendation E.164 [4]

H.323 terminal: entity which provides audio and optionally video and data communications capability in point-to-point

or multipoint conferences in packet-based networks

Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN): see ITU-T Recommendation I.112 [2], subclause 2.3 definition 308

IP number: number conforming to the structure of addresses in IP networks

ISDN number: number conforming to the numbering plan and structure specified in ITU-T Recommendation E.164 [4]

service, telecommunication service: that which is offered by an Administration or ROA to its customers in order to

satisfy a specific telecommunication requirement

NOTE 2: Bearer service and teleservice are types of telecommunication service. Other types of telecommunication

service may be identified in the future.
supplementary service: see ITU-T Recommendation I.210 [3], subclause 2.4

Switched Circuit Network (SCN): telecommunications network, e.g. Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN),

Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN), and General System for Mobile communications (GSM), that uses circuit-

switched technologies for the support of voice calls. The SCN may be a public network or a private network

teleaction service [telemetry service]: type of telecommunication service that uses short messages, requiring a very

low transmission rate, between the user and the network

NOTE 3: Examples of teleaction services are: telealarm, telecommand, telealerting.

teleservice (telecommunication service): type of telecommunication service that provides the complete capability,

including terminal equipment functions, for communication between users according to protocols established by

agreement between Administrations and/or RPAs. See ITU-T Recommendation I.112 [2], subclause 2.2

TIPHON compliant system: system that complies with the mandatory requirements identified in the TIPHON

requirements documents together with compliance to the parts of the TIPHON specifications in which these

requirements are embodied:
• TR 101 306 (for compliance with TIPHON phase 1);
• TR 101 307 (for compliance with TIPHON phase 2); and
• TR 101 308 (for compliance with TIPHON phase 3.

NOTE 4: Requirements indicated 'conditional' in the documentation should be considered mandatory if the

condition applies.
