Compared to the transport of voice over IP there are even tougher challenges on the delivery of video services in large scale IP networks.
Providing protection against network failures is an important requirement for the continuous support of subscriber services. It is also significant to address carriers’ needs for efficient low cost network operation.
Based on the wealth of experience which Siemens and Juniper have gained in the RESIP (RESilient IP networks) project, we discuss in this talk the high availability architectures for video services. The solution is based on mechanisms drawn from the Siemens SURPASS Next Generation Networks solutions and the Juniper Networks Routers.
