    We introduce a reference workbench architecture for UML (Unified Modeling Language)-based service creation founded on the decoupling of dynamic (process) and static (profile) aspects. This workbench has been developed in the PILOTE project (Processus d'Ingenierie du Logiciel des Telecommunications) of the French RNRT (Reseau National de Recherche en Telecommunications). A fairly high integration l... View full abstract»

    Since the implementation of the very first intelligent network platforms in the USA in the 1980s and in Europe in the early 1990s, manufacturers invested much effort and allocated many resources to develop and to support service-independent building block (SIB)-based service design tools, and thus to comply with ITU-T, ETSI CS-x and Bellcore standards. Siemens will introduce and market in 2001 a n... View full abstract»

    One of the main aims of Bell Core's intelligent network approach in the 1980s was to offer a generic solution for the deployment of value-added voice services within circuit switched networks. Although the INAP protocol always allowed the provisioning of number translation services by controlling the call set-up and influencing the routing of voice-calls it is another class of IN services which ga...

    This presentation is about charging for content or application usage. We propose a new API (application programming interface) that allows content servers or application hosts to delegate the charging process to a payment service provider. The new API: 1) does not depend on the type of the application to be charged, 2) does not care about when and how the customer is billed, 3) is able to support ... View full abstract»

    This paper introduces user-centric services as an approach to integrating different services, and it illustrates how this approach can be applied to the virtual home environment. The services we propose act on behalf of a single user's demands and the system we built includes profiling and self-adaption to `contexts' and `situations'. We use the term `I-centric' where `I' means I (me, myself, and ... View full abstract»

  • The use of semaphores with feature interactions in next generation networks

    Publication Year: 2001 , Page(s): 41 - 49
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (476 KB) |  | HTML iconHTML  

    In next-generation networks, features may be provided from various venues, expanding the boundaries of where features are provided. The basis of this proposal is that the coordination of feature interactions in NGN could be served well with the use of semaphores. A feature semaphore is associated with each zone of a call session, and these semaphores become part of the user's per call data. This p... View full abstract»

    Competitive market conditions and narrowing profit margins are driving network operators to optimize their network and to find new sources of revenue. The first step of this optimization is to use one common packet network for voice, video and data traffic. In these networks SoftSwitches handle the voice and multimedia calls and control the media gateways to interface the packet network to the PST... View full abstract»
