As the network convergence with services for both static and mobile networks has been the principal object of the next generation networks, the recent research focus is converging in the direction of standardizing common infrastructure based on all-IP networks. IMS is a recent initiative. Moreover, designing and deploying a standard QoS provisioning mechanisms in large networks is not a trivial matter. IPTV services are considered between the important IMS flow, the actual QoS management mechanisms proposed by 3GPP allow providing the IMS network components control and efficient service delivery, however the 3GPP approach focuses entirely on the step of providing the service, but there is no mechanism for monitoring QoS dynamically.
