Nantucket, MA -- The Internet Protocol Detail Record Organization (IPDR.org), a collaborative industry consortium and recognized leader in next-generation IP service usage and exchange standards worldwide, today announced it will unveil its industry wide work plan on accounting and settlement standards for IPTV services.

The briefing will be held at TeleStrategies' Billing & OSS World 2006 and is open to attendees of the conference, held May 3 - 5 in Miami. The presentation will take about 45 minutes and will be applicable to telephony service providers, voice operators, broadband network providers, cable operators, entertainment content partners, support vendors, media and analysts. The briefing will take place:

May 3, 2006
TeleStrategies' Billing & OSS World 2006
Miami Beach Convention Center
1901 Convention Center Dr.
Miami Beach, FL 33139
10:45 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.
Room: A-208


The briefing will include:

  • The overall IPDR.org work plan of the accounting and settlement efforts
  • Presentation of initial use cases and functionality
  • Specifics related to additional elements and protocol enhancements related to IPTV services
  • Key requirements related to content settlement and revenue sharing
  • The complete timeline for the delivery of specifications to the industry
  • Partnerships and joint industry work
  • Key events and demonstrations of the IPTV specifications

IPDR.org's COO and President Kelly Anderson commented, "IPDR.org has taken on the leadership role in establishing global accounting and settlement standards needed so that service providers can offer IPTV services. We have brought together industry experts who have developed a detailed working charter and a project plan that will allow the industry to move forward quickly so that service providers can immediately begin providing IPTV services."

"Our IPTV initiative has confirmed that the gathering of usage data elements from network components is critical to the success of IPTV, and that content applications, user behavior, advertising, network management, and settlement all require network data in their core applications. In addition, we agree with other industry associations that the absence of standards will impede implementation, or at the least, cause costly proprietary standards. With this resolve, we are excited to present our accelerated work plan at Billing World," Anderson said.

There will be no fee to attend this meeting and no requirement to be an IPDR.org member or Billing World conference attendee. Please visit www.ipdr.org for additional meeting information.
