UCI Forum Completes SIPv6 Test Program Implementation

The UCI Forum has just announced the acceptance of a documentation, software and services package from the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL) to implement its SIP Over IPv6 Networks (SIPv6) Test Program.  This is a milestone for UCI Forum since it is the first test program to be completed.

Members of both UCI Forum and International Multimedia Telecommunications Consortium, which will merge in 2014 and operate under the IMTC banner, will all benefit from the test program for SIP Over IPv6 Networks. 

The UCI Forum was founded to further the cause of interoperability among unified communications implementations.  However, merely to print out the existing specifications created by the various standards bodies would denude a small forest.  The founders decided that adding to this list of specifications was insufficient; the mission of the UCI Forum had to include the creation of interoperability tools and programs to enable vendor members to verify compliance with standards.

As has been described in an earlier blog entry, the Test and Certification Working Group (CWG) was chartered in 2012 to implement the recommendations of the Voice Study Group.  Specifically, the charter mandated that CWG create a test tool and verification program to close a significant gap in the readiness of SIP networks and technologies to interoperate over IPv6.

In order to be credible, the selected base interoperability profile had to have certain important qualities:

  1. It had to represent a complete and coherent set of requirements to ensure inter-vendor interoperability.
  2. Compliance with the profile needed to be a meaningful goal that UCI Forum vendor members would already be aspiring to achieve as part of their product plans.

The closest match for these qualities was the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) Unified Capabilities Requirements 2008 Change 3 (which was referenced by the later UCR 2013).  This document defines the requirements for SIP technologies to be certified to operate on a DoD IPv6 network.  All major vendors aspire to comply with this standard in order to be approved as a supplier for U.S. DoD contracts.  Given the multi-national nature of many 21st century military operations, even non-U.S. DoD communications networks owned by coalition partners aspire to achieve this certification.  However, preparing for a certification session at the Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC) is a time-consuming, resource-intensive and onerous task for UC vendors.

The overall goal of the SIPv6 program was to implement a pre-certification program that would enable vendors to establish their readiness for the JITC certification process.  The program required the definition of likely test cases and scenarios and a method of exercising those in an automated and consistent manner.  The benefits would be that vendors could reduce their cost of preparing for certification and improve their likelihood of gaining certification.

After an extensive RFP process, UNH- IOL was short-listed by UCI Forum in early 2012 as an approved vendor of test programs and tools.  Later that year, CWG awarded the contract for the SIPv6 program to UNH IOL.  The contract required UNH-IOL to deliver:

  1. A comprehensive test plan that would establish compliance with the UCR 2008 Change 3 requirements.
  2. An automated test tool that would implement the test plan.
  3. A secure IPv6 test network to conduct the testing
  4. A test environment that would contain various components (e.g. IPv6 compliant routers) to simulate a comprehensive SIPv6 network.

The test plan was delivered and approved in 2013.  This very detailed document is 400 pages long, containing all of the test cases required for compliance with the UCR 2008 Change 3 document, including:

  • IPv6 Core Operations
  • Neighbor Discovery
  • SLAAC
  • Path MTU
  • ICMPv6
  • Addressing Architecture
  • DHCPv6
  • Comprehensive SIPv6 session scenarios

The test tool and test network deliverables were made to UCI Forum in late March this year.  Since then, UCI Forum vendor members, led by Sonus Networks, have been working through the acceptance testing of the deliverables.  The test tool is based on the UNH-IOL INTACT™ test scripting platform.  The test network allows UCI Forum members to conduct interoperability testing with other members as well as to interoperate with equipment that is hosted at UNH IOL.

The test plan and test tool are available for download free of charge by the UCI Forum/IMTC members.  The test network can be used to conduct bi-lateral interoperability testing between consortium members; it can also be used to conduct interoperability plug-fests and similar events.  Furthermore, the UNH-IOL offers a service to act as an independent third-party test lab to implement the test suite against a vendor’s SIPv6 implementation.

With the completion of the SIPv6 test program implementation, UCI Forum and IMTC members now have free access to an invaluable tool that saves time and resources, and provides a credible metric of SIP over IPv6 interoperability.  Special thanks go to Tim Carlin of the UNH IOL, as well as Brad Chalker of Sonus Networks and Sam Bedekar of Microsoft, for their contributions to this project.

UCI Forum Advances Software Defined Networking with Unified Communication Use Case

SAN RAMON, Calif., May 15, 2014 – The Unified Communications Interoperability Forum (UCI Forum) today announced that it has released its first Unified Communication Software Defined Network (UC SDN) Use Case specification for automating Quality of Service (QoS). Developed by its newly formed UC SDN Task Group (TG), the specification describes in detail how a UC system can automate the programming of the network for proper treatment of voice, video and web conferencing.

This innovative approach removes the expensive and error prone manual administration of deploying QoS, thereby eliminating misconfiguration, configuration drift and increased cost of operations. All an operator has to do is specify a set of policies for voice, video and web conferencing and the UC systems will automatically program the network via a UC SDN North Bound Interface (NBI) to the desired QoS treatment. The specification details how to dynamically manage QoS, which involves four different use cases:
1. Dynamic Marking QoS: dynamically mark authorized voice and video traffic with the appropriate QoS markings.
2. Call Admission Control: prevent voice and video traffic from exceeding the available bandwidth capacity, and notify applications of changes in available bandwidth so they can adjust selected codecs (e.g. based on policies).
3. Dynamic Traffic Engineering of Bandwidth Capacity for each Class of Service: dynamically adjust the amount of bandwidth associated with various Classes of Service (CoS) to match bandwidth requirements of the corresponding applications.
4. Dynamic Traffic Engineering of Media Paths: route media along a path that is best able to meet performance requirements, rather than along the “default” least-cost path.
Version 1.0 of the specification focuses on dynamically marking QoS and can be downloaded here: http://ucif.org/Portals/0/documents/2014_02_27_Use_Case.pdf. Version 2.0, set for release later this year, will extend the specification to cover dynamic Traffic Engineering (TE) and Call Admission Control.
Given that more and more customers demand UC to work correctly over Wi-Fi, the specification covers both wired and wireless networks, thereby improving the end user experience.

“By working with the industry in an open, standards-based approach, Microsoft believes Software Defined Networking offers the promise to bring great quality Lync and Skype experiences to users across all different network types,” said Giovanni Mezgec, General Manager of Product Marketing for Skype and Lync. “Through the combination of the Lync SDN API and the strong work of our partners, we’ve been able to deliver solutions for our customers they can take advantage of today and lay the foundation in the industry for broad adoption of UC SDN as a core use case for enterprise network architects.”

“Developing multi-vendor open Northbound APIs is critical to drive broad adoption and accelerate the innovation of SDN solutions, such as HP Network Optimizer SDN Application for Microsoft Lync,” says Manfred Arndt, Chief Technologist for UC, HP Networking. “HP delivers a superior UC user experience, through automation and simplification, seamlessly across unified wired and wireless networks via a hybrid SDN approach without requiring a rip-and-replace of the network.”

“Today’s work-anywhere-anytime #GenMobile user expects non-stop Wi-Fi access via mobile devices to business critical applications, including UCC services like Microsoft Lync, and this requires a fundamental rethinking of IT architecture,” said Michael Tennefoss, Vice President of Strategic Partnerships at Aruba Networks. “Wired networks with their rigid VLANs are out. Today you need over-the-air adaptive quality of service mechanisms that automatically recognize and prioritize applications, and provide end-to-end monitoring and root-cause diagnostics. For example, Aruba’s interface with the standards-based Lync SDN API reflects this new reality, providing unparalleled Lync and network visibility into real-time calls, fault locations, and device issues. The SDN API empowers you with confidence to cut the cord to wired IP phones, deliver the best possible #GenMobile user experience, and realize the productivity and rightsizing benefits that come from UCC mobility.”
The UCI Forum UC SDN TG was formed in August of 2013 and has a charter to define use cases (including scenarios in automating diagnostics, security, etc.), define any NBIs (with a liaison agreement with the Open Network Foundation North Bound Interface Working Group), and define a certification program if required.

Update on SIP over IPv6 Test Program

An early goal of the #UCIForum was to facilitate inter-vendor interoperability of SIP implementations.  The Voice Study Group was formed in 2011 to examine the state of voice interoperability.  Its conclusion was that there was a significant gap in the readiness of SIP networks and technologies to interoperate over IPv6.

IANA allocated the final blocks of IPv4 addresses in February 2011.  With the rapid expansion of the internet and the end-points that operate on it, in particular various classes of mobile devices, it was therefore inevitable that the bulk of voice traffic would be carried on IPv6 networks in the future.  Nevertheless, there was no global standards group or forum that had established interoperability guidelines or certification for SIP over IPv6 (SIPv6).  The closest to such a standard was a set of US Department of Defense documents (Unified Capabilities Requirements 2008 Change 3) defining the requirements for SIP technologies to operate on an IPv6 network; although few, if any, vendors were able to demonstrate compliance with this specification.

The ‘SIP over IPv6’ (SIPv6) Task Group of the Test and Certification Working Group (CWG) was chartered in 2012 to address this challenge.  Using the UCR Change 3 requirements as its starting point, it defined a plan for a pre-certification program that would enable vendors to establish their readiness for the JITC certification process.  The goals of this program would be:

1.    A comprehensive test plan that would establish compliance with the UCR Change 3 requirements.

This test plan would comprise a set of test cases that would exercise either a client element (e.g. a SIP-enabled device) or an infrastructure element (e.g. a ‘SIP Proxy’) with repeatable procedures and expected results.

2.    An automated test tool that would implement the test plan.

This test tool would run in a test network that would initiate various connections that would exercise the test plan and produce results of the test.

3.    A secure IPv6 test network over which testing could be conducted

4.    A test environment that would contain various components (e.g. IPv6 compliant routers) that could be used to simulate a comprehensive SIPv6 network.

After CWG had established its Test Vendor program, the University of New Hampshire’s InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL) was selected to implement the SIPv6 program.  Rapid progress has been achieved over the last few months and the test plan is in the final stages of acceptance by UCI Forum members.  This very comprehensive document is 400 pages long containing all of the test cases required for compliance with the UCR 2008 Change 3 document, including:

·         IPv6 Core Operations

·         Neighbor Discovery

·         SLAAC

·         Path MTU

·         ICMPv6

·         Addressing Architecture

·         DHCPv6

·         Comprehensive SIPv6 session scenarios

The test tool is based on the UNH IOL INTACT™ test scripting platform and was demonstrated to the UCI Forum membership in October.  Completion of the remaining 3 deliverables was completed in December and acceptance testing is currently being conducted by the CWG.

Once the deliverable has been accepted, this tool will be available for download free of charge by the UCI Forum members on completion of acceptance testing.  In the future, it will also be possible to use the test network to conduct interoperability testing with other members as well as to interoperate with equipment that is installed in the test environment that is hosted at UNH-IOL.  UCI Forum has plans to use this network not only to verify SIPv6 compliance but also to conduct public demonstrations and interop events throughout 2014 and beyond.

With the accelerating deployment of IPv6 voice and data networks, 2014 promises to be the start of a new era in unified communications.

Unified Communications Interoperability Forum and Open Networking Foundation Announce Collaborative Relationship between Unified Communications and Software-Defined Networks

Collaborative relationship ensures that work leverages framework-development
in the SDN community, accelerating wider adoption

SAN RAMON, Calif., November 20, 2013 – The Unified Communications Interoperability Forum (UCI Forum) today announced that it has signed an agreement with the Open Networking Foundation (ONF) to establish a collaborative relationship in the area of SDN integration into unified communications (UC) environments. Under the terms of the agreement, the two organizations have identified areas of mutual interest for their collaborative efforts:

  • Research and publication of use cases that leverage SDN architectures and protocols to enhance or enable UC
  • Demonstration and communication of the effective deployment of UC solutions that are supported by SDN architecture
  • Identification of a basic framework for a common northbound interface for UC applications

The UCI Forum will define a UC SDN framework and API that describes the interaction of UC with various SDN functions and will attempt to build on frameworks that are being proposed or developed by other SDN communities like ONF. As ONF is developing their framework for Northbound APIs to SDN controllers, the UCI Forum will liaise with ONF to leverage the ONF framework development efforts.

“The UCI Forum is pleased to be working with ONF, and we see this relationship as a great way to support SDN integration into UC,” said Matt Collier, president of UCI Forum.

This collaboration reinforces both organizations’ commitments to openness and promoting the interests of SDN. As part of this collaboration, UCI Forum participated at the ONF Northbound Interface Leadership Roundtable on November 19 in Santa Clara, CA.

“Our relationship with the UCI Forum supports and demonstrates the exciting potential of providing SDN’s benefits to user applications,” said Dan Pitt, executive director of the Open Networking Foundation. “The collaboration between our two organizations will further accelerate the adoption of open SDN, within UC.”

New Scalable Video Coding (SVC) Specification Developed to Ensure Interoperability Among Video Conferencing Solutions – UCI Forum Members and Board Approve H.264 Specification

SAN RAMON, Calif., February  11, 2013 – The Unified Communications Interoperability Forum (UCI Forum) today announced that its Board of Directors has approved the Unified Communications Specification for H.264/MPEG-4 Part 10 AVC and SVC Modes Version 1.0. Coupled with a certification program that is currently under development, it will allow customers to deploy mixed-vendor solutions with confidence.

Video conferencing solutions from a number of leading vendors have already incorporated H.264/SVC; however, current implementations may not fully interoperate. The approved specification defines configurations of H.264/SVC-based systems to ensure their interoperability.  The approved specification builds on the profiles submitted by the UCI Forum to the International Telecommunications Union (ITU), and adopted in early 2012, concerning use of H.264/MPEG-4 Part 10 AVC and SVC in Unified Communication (UC) systems.

The UCI Forum approved H.264/SVC specification defines a carefully selected set of capabilities that have proven to be effective in real-life deployments from different vendors.  The specification takes into consideration  the needs of UC users that use various devices, ranging from handheld and mobile devices (e.g., smart phones, tablets, and notepads) to larger, location systems (e.g., desktop computers and video conference suites) to connect into visual collaboration meetings.

The new specification is the first step in the UCI Forum’s planned interoperability certification program for H.264/SVC-based video systems and covers the bit stream. Additional specifications are planned in the area of transport and signaling, enabling the negotiation of different transmission modes between the video source and the video destination, as well as parameters such as picture resolution, video refresh rates and screen size.

“The UCI Forum’s approval of the H.264/SVC specification is a significant milestone because it represents the first step towards enabling the video conferencing and unified communication industries to offer fully interoperable video solutions,” said Bernard Aboba, president of the UCI Forum. “The H.264/SVC task group defined a specification that addresses market needs as well as interoperability challenges among vendors.”
