4  Overall architecturep. 8

The TISPAN NGN functional architecture ES 282 001 [1] is structured according to a service layer and an IP-based transport layer (see figure 1).
The service layer comprises the following components:
  • The IP Multimedia Subsystem core component (IMS).
  • The PSTN/ISDN Emulation Subsystem (PES).
  • Other multimedia subsystems and applications.
  • Common components (i.e. used by several subsystems) such as those required for accessing applications, charging functions, user profile management, security management, routing data bases (e.g. ENUM), etc.
IP-connectivity is provided to NGN user equipment by the transport layer, under the control of the Network Attachment SubSystem (NASS) and the Resource and Admission Control Subsystem (RACS). These subsystems hide the transport technology used in access and core networks below the IP layer.
The present document further describes the functional architecture of the IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) core component.
