The purpose of this project is to bridge advances in networking, communication and information technology services towards a unique service environment where personalized services will be dynamically created and provisioned by the end-user itself regardless of ambiance and location.
The project will produce an open service infrastructure to enable users for easy service creation and deployment in heterogeneous environments and ambiances, allowing services to be accessed in a seamless way by a multitude of devices connected via different networks. It will have tangible benefits to end-users as it will enrich services variety and relevance to their needs, and to service providers as it will ease the service creation and extend the scope of services that can be offered. It will leverage the business of SMEs by facilitating quick creation and deployment of a new range of services as "smart users" by ad-hoc cooperation with other business players. From this the number of service providers and users will increase and consequently the amount of equipment sold by manufacturers, which will provide the enabling platform elements.
