The last few years, users want various services that fit their needs and preferences. Many services are provided at network edges and are increasing in number. The open framework is needed for efficient service management and uniform deployment of personal services at network edges. In this paper, we propose the open service framework, which can be implemented as a platform for the personal service at network edges by using Open Pluggable Edge Service (OPES) concept. The proposed framework is composed of Databases, Policy Repository, Rule Manager, Policy Adapter, Admission Manager, Operations Support System (OSS) Adapter and OPES-based Service Delivery Manager for the deployment of personalized and QoS guaranteed services in a standard way. In order to perform the feasibility of this platform, we have implemented a simple example and shown some its results.
