Abstract :
Introduction to multi-services gateways. Overview of the general context of next generation networks and services convergence, towards multi-services gateways creation. Study of the various gateways working at different levels (as a broadcasting device at the service provider, as a transition node inside the network, as an end-user gateway for receiving the services and streaming them to the end-users terminals), with a focus on how they assure interoperability and the panel of the associate services.
Plan :
  1. Networks and services convergence
    • Telecom/Internet/Broadcast convergence, fixed/mobile
    • ETSI TISPAN, 3GPP IMS solutions
  2. Professional gateways
    • Streaming gateways
    • Transition gateways
  3. Home gateways
    • "Any box" type of gateway, "set-top" box, PC box, ...
    • Technologies, systems, material, performances, costs, functionalities, "home networks" creation
    • Interoperability (UPnP, DLNA, HGi)
    • Future evolution: "intelligent home"
  4. Gateways and services
    • Convergence of service streaming technologies
    • Interoperability and coexistence of services
    • Future evolution: multi-play, adaptation, follow-me
