Mobile Video Services: Ready for Prime Time
In this paper, we will first examine the market drivers and competing service delivery technologies for mobile video. We will then review several leading mobile video services, and present selected video-processing extensions for mobile video delivery platforms. Finally, we will conclude by summarizing the benefits of mobile video for telecom equipment manufacturers (TEMs) and systems integrators (SIs) on the one hand, and for mobile network operators (MNOs) and value-added service providers (VASPs) on the other.
Reducing Integration Time Using CP-TA Tested Building Blocks
B-STAR, in coordination with CP-TA, integrated an IPTV application using ATCA building blocks tested with CP-TA’s test tools. The goal was to quantitatively show a reduction in integration time using hardware components that were CP-TA tested. This paper documents B-STAR’s integration effort and serves as a process template exemplifying the use of CP-TA’s test tools and standardized test report.
This document presents virtualization requirements that have been identified by the SCOPE Alliance Virtualization Working Group as being necessary for the NEPs/TEMs networking/telecommunications systems. These virtualization requirements are associated with the use cases from which they were derived and have been aggregated into categories.
Virtualization: State of the Art
This document presents the state-of-the-art of virtualization as a foundation for further work of the SCOPE Alliance Virtualization Working Group. It also provides a glossary of virtualization terminology that will be used in further work of the SCOPE Alliance Virtualization Working Group.
Virtualization: Use Cases
The SCOPE Alliance Virtualization Working Group aims to provide a set of hardware and software requirements that describe functional and non-functional aspects of virtualization features required by the NEPs.
Mapping Java EE to SAForum Specifications: A NEP Perspective
NGN (Next Generation Networks) and Service layer applications have high requirements on rapid development and deployment of new services. To meet these requirements Java EE is used to a large extent, however in the telecom domain, carrier grade high availability and fault tolerance is a norm and it also needs to be valid for Java EE applications to a larger extent than today.
