Standards development within the Information Technology sector is harmonized with international standards development. Through the CSA Technical Committee on Information Technology (TCIT), Canadians serve as the SCC Mirror Committee (SMC) on ISO/IEC Joint Technical Committee 1 on Information Technology (ISO/IEC JTC1) for the Standards Council of Canada (SCC), the ISO member body for Canada and sponsor of the Canadian National Committee of the IEC. Also, as a member of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), Canada participates in the International Telegraph and Telephone Consultative Committee (ITU-T).
This Standard has been formally approved, without modification, by the Technical Committee and has been developed in compliance with Standards Council of Canada requirements for National Standards of Canada. It has been published as a National Standard of Canada by CSA Group.
This document describes an architecture that allows UPnP Telephony devices, services and control points defined in the propoded DCP to be deployed in the home network environment and to enable management of incoming and outgoing telephony calls, messaging, presence information and phone features configuration through UPnP means from devices within the home.
In order to accommodate the above mentioned goals, the Telephony Architecture defines several UPnP devices and services that can be embedded to the devices defined for telephony. The architecture model describes interaction among the telephony devices, services and control points. The architecture also describes various deployment scenarios.
The architecture does not describe any interfaces to service gateways that will enable non- UPnP entities to interact with the UPnP devices, services and control points physically attached to the home network.
