PROJECT STRUCTURE

Workpackages

 Planned work, in the context of PoLoS, is divided into four main groups:

          WG0: Non-technical, Support Workpackages

         WG1: Requirements analysis and Process Models

         WG2: Platform Development

         WG3: Integration, Trials

 

WG0 addresses all the administrative and technical management tasks, such as project management, dissemination, exploitation, assessment and evaluation of the project.

 WG1 tries to establish the requirements of the system and initiates work on the Process Models. UML will be extensively used towards the formal specification of requirements and the specification of the pursued system. Additionally, languages like SDL may also be used. WG1 will also include extensive surveys on state-of-the-art technologies of the considered domain in order to cater for the widest possible technological domain.

 WG2 will be the core activity within the project. WG2 will deliver both the Service Creation Environment and the Service Deployment and Provision platform. Towards these objectives, the consortium will capitalize on well-established technologies and standards like J2EE and XML.

 WG3 will demonstrate the easiness in the deployment of new LBS using the outcomes of WG2. At first WG3 will try to integrate the full-scale system into a testing environment. The rationale behind this activity is the validation of interfaces towards positioning technologies or the low-level telecom infrastructure (e.g., terminals exposing their capabilities to the fixed network infrastructure), before the fully-fledged deployment on equipment provided by the participating telecom operator.
