—This paper proposes a practical model for non-Telecom staff to determine enterprise-Business-Context (eBC) status for employees' service requests. This is used to grant selective funding for business usage, which is distinguished from unfunded personal usage. The eBC Model interprets enterprise objectives via layered prioritization. It computes the eBC(More)
— In this paper we propose a method of translating enterprise business objectives into service delivery policy rules in Mobile Broadband networks. This enables enterprises to control their own session policies for BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) users and apply selective funding with prioritized service delivery. The proposed eBC (enterprise Business Context)(More)
—This paper analyzes the impact of the fast-growing BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) trend in the corporate mobile market, which blurs lines between business and personal usage. To enable selective funding and resource optimization for BYOD, we propose that the enterprise determines its own service delivery policy, using an enterprise Business Context (eBC)(More)
enterprises that adopt BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) need to optimize network selection for refundable employees' business usage. They can 'force-on-net' business sessions when employees are on-site and seek 'best connection' when employees are off-site, perhaps via hospitality partners that provide WiFi connectivity. For non-fundable, unproductive personal(More)
BACKGROUND Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a commonly reported cause of death and associated with smoking. However, COPD mortality is high in poor countries with low smoking rates. Spirometric restriction predicts mortality better than airflow obstruction, suggesting that the prevalence of restriction could explain mortality rates attributed(More)
— Attributes credibility, trustiness and accuracy are often considered, but not incorporated in decision making algorithms. In this paper a credibility-based risk/business context model is proposed, to profile communication service requests using sources' credibility, as well as observed intensity and customizable policy-based prioritization. The paper(More)
— When building decision-making models from disparate observations, there are no set rules to guide the designer on how to organize available information, how to classify vital aspects, how to emphasize important ones in the aggregation process, and how to deal with conflict and uncertainty in the aggregation procedures. This paper draws on the experience(More)
