The move toward market deregulation and open competition has sparked a wave of serious introspection in the telecommunications service industry. Telecom providers and operators are now required to open up their primary revenue channels to competing industries. The competition for product differentiation increasingly depends on the level of sophistication, degree of flexibility, and speed of deployment of services that a future provider can offer. These factors in turn depend heavily on the…

IP Convergence in Global Telecommunications New Approaches to Network Management and Service Provision
TLDR
Current and emerging approaches to network management and service provision in both voice and IP data public carrier networks are overviewed, with a new trend is emerging of joining separated voice and data public networks belonging to a single carrier into an mtegrated telecommunications infrastructure to provide highly innovative product packages.
Value-added services in the converged network
Now that the local market is open to competition, incumbent local exchange carriers as well as competitive LECs must not only follow the technology curve, but find a way to ride the wave of network
Performance Modeling of a Service Provisioning Design
TLDR
An analytical performance model for the service creation process is described that expresses the high-level performance characteristics of the different subsystems involved in service provisioning.
The support of mobile Internet applications in UMTS networks through the open service access
TLDR
The possibilities of OSA to facilitate network operators in providing the mutual support of network capabilities and Internet content would allow the network operator to become a value-added mobile Internet service provider (VAM-ISP).
Spawning Networking Architectures (White Paper)
TLDR
A research agenda that comprises of items that are considered the most pressing in building a network architectures creation platform and plan to establish a methodology and create an environment for spawning virtual networks and their architectures and investigate trade-offs of location and degree of cooperation and competition among the controllers.
Um Meta Modelo para a Engenharia de Serviços de Telecomunicações
  • Computer Science
TLDR
This work presents a model for the analysis and comparation of service adaptation and programming mechanisms on communication networks, providing a basis for the representation of QoS and multicasting aspects on communication services.
A conceptual model of service customization and its implementation
TLDR
Compared with the existing service-customization techniques, SECUM is a service customization model internal to network system and may provide more powerful capabilities of service customization.
Service Creation Technologies in Open Programmable Networks
This article discusses the need fo r standard software interfaces B STRACT for programming o f networks, specifically for service and signaling control, through programming interfaces. The objective
Software-Defined Networking: A Comprehensive Survey
TLDR
This paper presents an in-depth analysis of the hardware infrastructure, southbound and northbound application programming interfaces (APIs), network virtualization layers, network operating systems (SDN controllers), network programming languages, and network applications, and presents the key building blocks of an SDN infrastructure using a bottom-up, layered approach.

Managing a broadband environment: "you can't buck the market"
TLDR
The authors express the need for a service-driven approach to standards implementation and point out specific challenges operators will face as they approach their management systems' needs for broadband services, and encourage service providers and network operators to take a more proactive role in defining their needs.
A Framework for Pricing Virtual Circuit and Virtual Path Services in ATM Networks
TLDR
A network-wide pricing optimization problem is formulated, where capacity is allocated by the network operator to every source-destination pair based on a measure of “profitability”.

TLDR
A unified framework of an architecture for broadband networks is outlined that consists of the traffic control, the management and information transport architecture, which is exemplified by modeling one of the fundamental building blocks of the future gigabit architecture.
Architecting noncooperative networks
TLDR
It is shown that, for systems of parallel links, such paradoxes cannot occur and the optimal solution coincides with the solution in the single-user case, and some extensions to general network topologies are derived.
On Realizing a Broadband Kernel for Multimedia Networks
TLDR
A prototype implementation of a broadband kernel is described, an open programming environment that facilitates the easy creation of network services and provides mechanisms for efficient resource allocation and a multi-party teleconferencing service is built upon the broadband kernel.
A survey of active network research
TLDR
It is illustrated how the routers of an IP network could be augmented to perform such customized processing on the datagrams flowing through them, and these active routers could also interoperate with legacy routers, which transparently forwarddatagrams in the traditional manner.
Realizing a Foundation for Programmability of ATM Networks with the Binding Architecture
TLDR
The implementation of a prototype binding architecture called xbind is described as a middleware toolkit for building open programmable ATM networks and the initial experiences with experimenting and deploying xbind over an ATM testbed are presented.

TLDR
This work explores the notion of a service in the Binding Architecture and proposes a conceptual model for building scalable multimedia distribution services based on it, and identifies a general set of capabilities required for building any multimedia distribution service.
Towards building manageable multimedia network services
TLDR
A generic object model is introduced which includes a set of cooperating objects that can be customized for a particular service and management requirements and can be used to investigate designs for scalable and efficient systems that make possible to control the cost of management.

TLDR
An algorithm is provided for the VP distribution problem that satisfies nodal constraints on the processing load and blocking constraints for each source-destination pair and maximizes the network revenue under the above set of constraints.
