Monday 20 October – Tutorials

09:00 - Tutorial 1 – Delivering Services Over IMS – It’s Showtime, Folks!

Presenter: Ulf Olsson (Ericsson, SE)

IMS was designed to be a multimedia platform, but it is becoming increasingly clear that the “M” could just as easily stand for Multi-service. Expanding on this subject, this tutorial will provide an overview of how the mechanisms in IMS can be used to deliver interoperable person-to-person communications with global reach, as well as innovative, differentiating services. We will explore how various IMS features can be used to steer routing and delivery, both in the network and the device(s). Completing the picture, we will discuss how service components can be combined and exposed to higher layers, linking into web-oriented toolsets and execution environments.

09:00 – Tutorial 2 – Identity Management in the Service Delivery Environment – Enabling Secure Web 2.0 and 3rd Party Based Application

Presenter: Anders Lundqvist (Oracle, SE) and Morten Skogsvold (Oracle, NO)

Web 2.0 is changing the world of applications on the web and in the Telco area. Web 2.0 and 3rd party applications in the Telco world have additional requirements to enable billing, hinder spam, fraud etc. Identity management therefore becomes crucial when launching these new applications. This tutorial will give a brief overview of Identity Management and more specifically its usage in a Web 2.0/3rd Party application world.

14:00 – Tutorial 3 – Cross-Fertilization of IMS and IPTV Services over NGN

Presenters: Niklas Blum and Christian Riede (Fraunhofer FOKUS, DE)

Multimedia and Triple Play (Data, IPTV, VoIP) services are more and more characterized by convergence of fixed and mobile networks towards NGN and All-IP infrastructures. Within this scope, the IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) represents a standardized architecture for access network agnostic and secure service provisioning. IMS makes VoIP, well known Internet communication features like Instant Messaging (IM) and Rich Presence available from every location taking QoS, AAA and standardized service delivery into account. This tutorial gives an overview about NGN service drivers, NGN concepts and the evolution from IN to IMS. It goes into detail with standardization efforts in the sphere of IMS, addresses its enablers and potentials as well as current efforts in the field of NGN-featured IPTV solutions.

14:00 – Tutorial 4 – Security Aspects and Mechanisms of the Identity Management

Presenters: Igor Faynberg and Hui Lan Lu (Alcatel-Lucent, US)

This tutorial is self-contained; its major goal is to demystify the complex subject of network security. Specifically, the topics of the IMS security and Identity Management are addressed in detail. The tutorial explains the cryptography, PKI, and authentication protocols, with the IMS security as a case study. Finally, the tutorial addresses the Identity Management and Service Federation issues using the most-recent real-life examples from the IMS and non-IMS applications.
