he Telecommunications Information Networking Architecture (TINA) is one of the driving forces in bringing together two industries whose merging has long been anticipated: TINA is at center stage when the telecommunications and information technology industries meet. This process, based on a vision that still needs much work to make it happen, has seen(More)
Most of all software systems have to be changed after their initial deployment. This is not only because of changing knowledge and expectations about our domains and systems, but also because of the continuous change of the environment itself. While changes in the environment happen implicitly, we need to explicitly keep our technology in sync with the(More)
A major challenge for next generation mobile communication is capturing the system architecture's complexity with all its internal and external dependencies. Seamless integration of heterogeneous environments in all system parts is a key requirement. Moreover, future systems have to consider the different evolution cycles of individual system parts. Among(More)
Next generation mobile communication does not only denote a new air interface, but a complex software architecture, addressing all system parts from wireless transmission to applications and services including a network and middleware platform. Seamless integration of heterogeneous environments on all system levels is regarded to be a key requirement.(More)
Over the past few years OMG CORBA implementations have matured. Consequently, organizations are now developing sophisticated distributed applications based on OMG standards. Many of these applications may be characterized as being multi-language implementations, running as multiple interdependent processes within a multi-vendor hardware and software(More)
In order to extend the coverage of network-based services to the home environment and offload core network servers, this paper presents a novel service platform called P-Gate that resides in home gateways such as femtocells or wireless LAN access points. The P-Gate platform allows for scalability through self-organized overlay techniques and supports a full(More)
