Abstract

Advanced telecommunication services have to be carefully designed in order to meet the various Quality of Service requirements of a probably very high number of end-users. Due to the enormous data management problems in telecommunications the use of database technology provides an efficient solution for several software components. However, the “ideal” database management system for telecommunication data management seems out of reach. It is the aim of this paper to show where and how next generation database technologies could be used to implement and maintain advanced communication services. The paper gives an overview of new database technologies and relates them to requirements of advanced communication services. A sample service is used to demonstrate the application of new data modeling and transaction concepts for advanced communication services.
