    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»

    This paper proposes a scalable network service execution system that executes a Parlay application while taking advantage of the session initiation protocol (SIP). By adopting a decentralized architecture which distributes the Parlay service logic execution environment (SLEE) to user terminals and support server, scalability as a system is improved. In this system, the objects comprising the Parla... View full abstract»

    3G networks promise a world of new applications. To make 3G a profitable business, these have to be billed. The classical billing process is in danger of collapse under the exploding load of tickets and log files to be processed. The IN based charging model, as currently used for pre-paid solutions, is much more efficient since it was designed for a real-time process. The article compares both pro... View full abstract»

    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»

    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»

    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...
