This paper presents the approach taken in the Telecommunications Information Networking Architecture Consortium (TINA-C) towards telecommunications service architecture and service specification concepts that meet future market needs. Since software portability, interoperability and reuse will be of prime importance in reducing costs associated with constructing, deploying and operating new services this paper shows the adaptation of fundamental technologies like object orientation paradigm and distributed processing in order to achieve these aims.
