The Telecommunication Service Exchange is a communication service platform based on a digital marketplace concept that enables customers to purchase telecommunication services. Customers are able buy product through this platform just as in a supermarket without being compelled to buy services from a particular producer or service provider. To enable this type of service provision, the current subscription model in telecommunications needs to be modified allowing customers to purchase telecommunication services on a per call basis. Using SIP, Electronic-Marketplaces and Agents, this paper outlines the architecture to achieve this as well as the possible benefits that this presents for both service providers and customers. An evaluation of the performance of the platform is also provided.
