Title Cable networks for television signals, sound signals and interactive services - Part 5-1: IP gateways and interfaces for headends
Project Number 21911
Abstract/Scope This Technical Report is an adjunct to the EN 60728/EN 50083 standards series and describes the characteristics of equipment which is used for the connection of IP based networks to and from headends such as described in EN 60728-5. Specifications from the transmission standard ETSI TS 102 034 are taken into account where applicable. The content of the data streams can be digital video, audio or other digital data. This Technical Report describes the necessary characteristics and parameters of equipment such as IP gateways or IP interfaces on equipment at the input of headends (Figure 1) as well as at the output of headends (Figure 2). Equipment at the input of headends can be either IP gateways which enable the connection to a DVB ASI headend infrastructure according EN 50083-9 or, in the case of modular headend systems can also be single equipment with IP interfaces such as DVB modulators, transcoders, multiplexers and FM radio processors as shown in Figure 1. Edge devices are also covered by this technical report.

(1) Date of ratification (dor) date when the Technical Board notes the approval of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), from which time the standard may be said to be approved

(2) Date of availability (dav) date when the definitive text in the official language versions of an approved CEN/CENELEC publication is distributed by the Central Secretariat

(3) Date of announcement (doa) latest date by which the existence of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), a TS or a CWA has to be announced at national level

(4) Date of publication (dop) latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement

(5) Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn

(6) This list of normative references is purely indicative. The only official list of normative reference is the list of the published standard.
