Development of Mobile Applications using IP Multimedia Subsystem
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Originally proposed in the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) standard, with being widely adopted along the way of its evolving, IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) has become much more than just a mobile world specification. It now represents a promising technology enabling the convergence between wireline and wireless network architectures to offer a next generation of rich multimedia services. And service providers have already put forward related strategies and started endeavoring on designing, evaluating and deploying IMS framework API to make it more easily undertaken by industry.
At Ericsson Research, a Mobile Java Communication Framework (MJCF) exposing the IMS functionalities have been developed in order to shorten the required investment of a software programmer to develop new applications, even though for those has little know-ledge on SIP/IMS.
Since no much work has been done in API usability so far, API evaluation still remains as a promising research area. Therefore, base on evaluating the MJCF, this thesis proposes a set of evaluation cri-teria and an evaluation procedure that may be generalized to yield solution to cost-effective API evaluation work without losing necessary coverage, and it could present as reference to API design efforts as well. Meanwhile, a prototype of an end-to-end service that employs communication strength of IMS has been suggested through IMS based application (Task Management System) development.
