This project concern the component technology for telecom application. The key objective is to bild a component framework that can rapidly transform architecture and design level components to execution level and deploy them efficiently on distributed hardware platforms. The project will provide a component infrastructure based on the COBRA standard and supporting the operational constraints of telecom application. This component framework will be composed of an XML tool chain and of a runtime environment integrating dications (Network Management and Service Provisioning) to describe the components, to build the application y components assembly and to deploy the components over the network
DESCRIPTION OF WORK
This project is structured in six technical work packages. WP1 will address the requirements analysis of the telecom COBRA components:- Comparative state of the art of the existing component models and telecom component requirements. WP2 will tackle the specifications of the telecom component infrastructure:- XML notation of components and component assemblies,-Specification of the tool chain and runtime environments (component generator, dynamic component interconnection, COBRA service integration),- Specification of the API of telecom business components,WP3 will implement the COBRA component model:- Implementation of the COBRA Component tool chain and of the runtime environments (based on open source).WP4 will implement the COBRA component deployment tool:- Dynamic deployment based on XML configuration (with on-line evolution and redeplyment).WP5 will experiment the whole component infrastructure on representative telecom application as:- Telecom Network management (integration of typical TMN FCAPS functions: Fault, Control, Accounting Performance, Security) - Service Provisioning (focus on quality of service QoS, Performance and reliability).WP6 will be dedicated to the exploition and dissemination of the projects results in the industrial and academic communities.
