A generic component for managing service roles

Tiropanis, Thanassis, Malbon, Chris and Karp, Hervé (1998) A generic component for managing service roles s.n.

Record type: Monograph (Project Report)


There are a number of architectures that describe how service providers can provide telecommunications services to their customers. Architectures like TINA address service control and service management issues for communication exchanges among human service users. n this paper we point out the importance of role-based exchanges in a telecommunications environment and we present a generic component that provides role management. We describe how this component was implemented and integrated in a TINA-like environment. We also describe why a role can be modelled as a mobile entity and how role mobility relates to role management. Finally, some conclusions are drawn.
