Generic trading service in telecommunication platforms
Telecommunication companies are currently defining a Telecommunications Information Networking Architecture (TINA) to meet the future demands of electronic markets. As part of such standardization efforts generic services are being defined. As well we demonstrate how a knowledge-based approach using conceptual graphs helps to develop a generic service for the mediation of services. The prototype of a knowledge-based trader is built according to the client/server paradigm which allows access to this service in a heterogeneous environment. This paper describes service mediation in general and the details of matching service offers and requests.
