is this Project about?
Application Servers turn out to be a highly important element for application provisioning nowadays as well as for upcoming next generation networks. Most of existing application servers do not meet the demanding and sophisticated requirements of telecommunication networks, e.g. concerning performance, support for mobile applications and multiple pluggable protocols, as today's products are designed for low or medium scaled services for the Internet world.
The results of this study are highly important to the shareholders and members of Eurescom, because a carrier-grade application server, that meets a broad set of telecommunication-specific requirements, is not yet available on the market, but is highly required to create, deploy and operate applications in next generation networks in an efficient cost-effective manner. Projects using the component technology (which will be based on application servers) are just starting on larger scale.
What are the main objectives of this Project?
The forming question for
this Study is: Will it be possible to realize a modular carrier-grade
Telecommunication Application Sever by means of plug-and-play components
covered by existing products?
The main objective of
this Study is to provide answers to the following questions:
