8:45 a.m. – 9:30 a.m. Where Is Triple Play Today and Where Is It Going?
 

Telecom operators have placed a high priority on delivering video over IP as a means to complete their triple-play service bundles. Delivering video over IP presents many new challenges for carriers, given that its requirements are fundamentally different from those for traditional voice and high-speed Internet services. The deployment of IPTV will also have significant repercussions for carrier network architectures. Telcos' distributed IP-based architecture is made up of parts from a wide variety of players, all of which must be integrated seamlessly – from the set-top box to the underlying network elements. Quad play only increases the stakes.

In this session Mr. Thompson addresses these questions and takes the pulse of service provider plans to deploy triple play service bundles. He will unveil the latest research from Heavy Reading on IPTV, IMS, and triple play to support his view of where the market is headed.

10:30 a.m. – 11:15 p.m. Triple Play Services: How to Define, Bundle, and Manage IP Services Across a Common IMS Platform
 
 
Triple Play involves a multitude of converged media services that deliver to different, converged devices over disparate but converging networks. Despite significant advances in networking technologies, the success of triple and now quadruple play will ultimately be decided by consumer choices and the subscriber experience that best fits them. So what services do consumers really want and how do they want to interact with them?
  • Defining and creating triple play and quad play services: where to start, IMS architecture issues
  • Importance of content and service interaction: quality of delivery and range of choice
  • Managing the subscriber experience and service access: seamless, user friendly access, service management, and billing management have a high impact on success
  • Subscriber Costs: installation, maintenance, and CPE costs which effect consumer choice and perceptions
  • Operator Costs: equipment and OSS for optimal CAPEX, OPEX, and subscriber management

For service providers actively engaged in triple/quad play deployments, they have found out that all that has been promised is not possible with the maturity of today’s solutions. Specifically what is missing is an end-to-end triple/quad play solution that works with little extra integration right out of the box.  Fortunately, we are getting much closer to that vision. In this session, we get inside the boxes and various infrastructure elements of an end-to-end triple/quad play solution. We look at VoIP and IPTV software platforms, chipsets, server platforms such as ATCA, STBs, mobile and video phones, middleware, and service creation environments—in short, all of the “parts” that are required to make an end-to-end deployment work. We will distinguish between real deployable product and vision-ware. Sound familiar?

 
2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. Service Provider Keynote: The Vision, Challenges, and ROI of Triple Play
 

We close the formal agenda of the day with keynotes from leading service providers (check your region for updates) who are in various stages of deploying triple or quad play services across their networks. We will hear the vision from these service provider executives, as well as the obstacles that must be overcome to increase the chances for success. Along with the war stories, they will share the expect benefits and ROI of their deployments, and a view on the competitive market place.

 
3:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. Cocktail Reception, Demos, Networking, and Extended Q&A
Mingle and network with your peers. Stay for cocktails and an “unveiling” of an end-to-end triple/quad play solution demonstration from our sponsors. Our more daring experts will take the stage again for extended Q&A in a more relaxed setting.
