Interconnect and Addressing Solutions
for an IP World
Next Generation interconnect
topologies and enabling new
service models
IPX concepts are in the early stages of adoption for
Next Gen network interconnect, complementing the
existing IP bilaterals, peering and hubbing services.
This session will discuss the connectivity models,
addressing solutions and implications of
implementing multilateral IP interconnects, including
number portability and service discovery.

IP Growth Fueling Addressing Challenges
• Broadband growth fuels “triple play”
»
»
Projected 33% penetration of all households by 2013 (both
fixed and wireless)
Over 500 million broadband IP enabled subscribers by 2013
• IMS subscriber growth 4x over next 3 years
»
ENUM positioned to be standard for IMS Inter-networking

IP Growth Fueling Addressing Challenges
• Evolving networks (such as IMS) require more
granular addressing to interconnect with other
operators
»
The originating network must know which terminating
subscribers have new services
• Bilateral address exchange will evolve to local and
national federations for interconnect
»
Ultimately these private federations will desire global reach
• ENUM positioned to be standard for IMS Internetworking
Interconnection is key to IP Service success

Why Interconnect Networks?
• Metcalfe’s Law
»
»
The "value" or "power" of a network increases in proportion
to the square of the number of nodes on the network.
Adoption of Next Generation services will increase substantially as
interconnection expands the addressable network/community
• BUT…
»
»
»
How will users address each other?
How will this address actually find
the other user when in another network?
How do operators specify which services
a user has available?
Network Addressing is critical for interconnection

Network Addressing
• Naming and addressing are critical for networking
• People and Service Providers know telephone numbers
• Billions of telephony devices only use numeric key pads
• People expect to initiate calls and other services within the global dial
plan
• Number Portability is a great competitive enabler
• But adds complexity to network addressing since every new service
must be port-corrected
• VoIP and PSTN domains MUST be transparently interoperable
• For both universal reach and network migrations
ENUM is the ideal technology for network addressing

• How will others find my services?
• Is the end destination compatible?
• How will others find my gateways?
• Which carrier or route can deliver?
• How will others find my service provider?
• What is the IP based address?
• How do I indicate my C7 or IP preference?
“Inform” others dynamically about how to reach your services
