What are the solutions for accessing a hotel IPTV leased line?

ForewordHello everyone, I'm Mr. Lin. Many friends asked about many solutions for IPTV. There are many solutions for hotels/guests to implement IPTV. Let's see today. TextCurrent network situation of hotel users

1. Hotel users typically use dedicated 100M/1000M fiber optic lines to access aggregation switches or VIP switches. User access to VLANs and IP addresses is terminated at SR, and SR or access devices rate-limit to meet user's provisioned bandwidth. Flexible management .

2. Most of hotel's exit devices are routers or firewalls, and private IP address of internal network can be used to access Internet through NAT function;

3. The equipment models used in hotel network are complex, and performance and functions of central switch equipment may not meet requirements for opening IPTV multicast;

4. Built-in wiring in hotel does not meet requirements for independent access of IPTV set-top boxes;

Scheme 1, IPTV leased line access + built-in wiring

The hotel switch does not support VLAN separation, multicast function, QoS function, but has new integrated connection conditions:

1. New built-in wiring in hotel;

2. The aggregation switch in central office opens a new gigabit dedicated IPTV line for users, and IPTV service is transparently transferred to UAS for termination;

3. The hotel needs to build N sets of IPTV access switches, and export switches have 1000M optical port access capabilities;

4. IPTV service and broadband access service are strictly separated, and newly added IPTV switch includes IGMP snooping function.

Scheme 2: IPTV leased line access + home gateway access

Hospitality aggregation switches support gigabit access capabilities, providing multicast, VLAN isolation, and QoS functions. Using original built-in wiring, a multi-VLAN bridging home gateway is deployed in a guest room to realize broadband Internet access. and IPTV services at same time. Enter:

1. The central office aggregation switch opens a new gigabit dedicated IPTV line for users, and IPTV service is transparently transferred to BAS for termination; newly added IPTV leased line is directly connected to user's base switch;

2. It is planned that IPTVVLAN will be used for hotel switches to isolate them from original broadband services.

3. The hotel switch must enable IGMP snooping function and enable QoS function to ensure IPTV QoS.

4. Hotel rooms are equipped with home gateway bridge equipment. The uplink port is connected with original integrated wiring, and IPTV VLAN services and broadband VLAN services are transmitted transparently. The LAN 1 port is connected to broadband service, and LAN 4 port is connected to IPTV set-top box. , and you can choose a model that supports WIFI function to increase WIFI coverage of hotel;

Scheme 3: IPTV leased line access + Wi-Fi coverage

The hotel network equipment supports gigabit access capabilities, complies with multicast, VLAN separation and QoS functions, uses original integrated wiring to provide IPTV service access for rooms, while complementing built-in wiring and deploying access points, which is realized by adding new access points in hotel with broadband wireless coverage:

1. The central office aggregation switch opens a new gigabit dedicated IPTV line for users, and IPTV service is transparently transferred to BAS for termination; newly added IPTV leased line is directly connected to user's base switch;

2. IPTVVLAN is scheduled for hotel switch, all original broadband ports in room are configured to IPTV service ports, and new WIFI and AP coverage is configured as original broadband service VLAN;

3. The hotel switch must enable IGMP snooping and QoS.

Scheme 4: Dedicated Shared Line for Broadband/IPTV + Embedded Cabling

Hotel equipment does not support VLAN separation, multicast function, QoS function, but has new integrated connection conditions:

1. New built-in wiring in hotel;

2. Add a gigabit convergence switch and an IPTV access switch N units for hotel;

3. Set user's original 100Mbps channel to a Gigabit channel [original channel is not connected to aggregation switch, channel must be configured to aggregation switch] and use a dedicated broadband line and IPTV services at same time. a dedicated broadband access line is provided by SR equipment termination, transparent transfer of a private IPTV line to BAS equipment termination;

4. The new aggregation switch is simultaneously connected to original hotel router and new IPTV access switch. The new IPTV switch must enable IGMP snooping.

Diagram 5 Shared Private Broadband/IPTV Line + Home Gateway Access

The performance and function of main switch in hotel is insufficient. The access switch performs multicast, VLAN, and QoS functions. Using original integrated wiring, a bridge-type home gateway is deployed that supports multi-VLAN functions. in guest room for simultaneous access to broadband Internet access and IPTV services. :

1. Add a hotel Gigabit aggregation switch, configure user's original 100Mbps link to a Gigabit link [If original leased line is not connected to an aggregation switch in central office, link must be configured to an aggregation switch], simultaneously carrying broadband leased line and IPTV service VLAN, VLAN broadband service is transparently forwarded to SR bearer, IPTV service VLAN is transparently forwarded to BAS bearer, and downlink port of new converged switch is connected to hotel router and access switch respectively;

2. The hotel access switch schedules IPTVVLAN and isolates it from original broadband service; ◦Hotel access switch should enable IGMP snooping and enable QoS related features;

3. Hotel rooms are equipped with home gateway bridge equipment. The uplink port is connected with original built-in wiring, and IPTV VLAN service and broadband VLAN service are transmitted transparently. The LAN 1 port is connected to broadband service, and LAN 4 port is connected to IPTV set-top box. , and you can choose a model that supports WIFI function to increase WIFI coverage of hotel;

Comparing variants

After understanding five solutions above, let's look at their various advantages and disadvantages.

Sentence:

1. The user's original core switch supports gigabit ports, while access switch can perform following functions:

a. Support for IGMP snooping

b. VLAN separation support

c, support for QoS priority scheduling

g. Support for port and VLAN priority marking

It is recommended to take second solution to open a new dedicated Gigabit IPTV channel for user and directly connect to user's main switch;

Separate IPTV VLAN from Broadband VLAN. By deploying a home gateway to provide both IPTV and broadband services at same time, you can use a home gateway that supports WIFI functions to extend wireless coverage area of ​​the rooms and improve hotel's network capabilities.

2. The user's original core switch does not support Gigabit ports; access switch can perform following functions:

a. Support for IGMP snooping

b. Support for VLAN separation.

c, support for QoS priority scheduling

g. Support for priority tags based on ports and VLANs

It is recommended to take fifth solution, provide users with a gigabit switch, configure hotel's original leased line to a gigabit channel, and simultaneously provide IPTV services and broadband access services, and connect gigabit switch to hotel. router and each access switch at same time. Avoid bandwidth performance bottlenecks in original core switches;

Separate IPTV VLAN and broadband VLAN, and enable simultaneous transmission of IPTV and broadband services by deploying home gateways. Home gateways that support WIFI functions can be used to increase wireless network coverage in rooms and improve hotel networking capabilities. .
