In the Services Network - HW Bitzer

  1. 1. OSGi in Networks Hans Werner Bitzer, Deutsche Telekom 22. October 2003
  2. 2. In the beginning … ! OSGi was created to promote an electronic service market ! Home related Services and Residential Gateways was the initial focus ! Basic Requirements: ! Common execution environment (OS) on different HW ! Applications from different independent sources / service providers ! Lifecycle management on app level / remotly managable
  3. 3. Questions to answer ! Why was OSGi not an immediate success in the Home Services Market? ! Why is OSGi successful in many Networked Services Szenarios and Environments?
  4. 4. Metcalfe´s Law ! A theory argued by Robert Metcalfe, inventor of Ethernet, which states that the power of a network increases by the square of the number of nodes connected to it. ! Metcalfe observed that new technologies are valuable only when large numbers of people use them -- consider how less valuable the telephone would be if only few people in the world used them. ! The network becomes more valuable the more nodes that are connected to it.
  5. 5. Why was OSGi not an immediate success in the Home Services Market? ! The prerequisites to be successful were underestimated! BUT ! Many of these prerequisites seem to be fulfilled right now: ! Wireless and power line technology are becoming prevalent ! WLAN users in North America to grow more then sevenfold in next 4 Years (Gartner) ! Zigbee and powerline technologies will have similar growth paths ! More and more devices become networked ! Continued trend to build in network connectivity (as price tends towards zero) ! People have become more and more technology savvy ! GSM, Internet,… ! The rapid growth of the Internet (ADSL/cable) has promoted an electronic infrastructure well prepared to enable the OSGi model: Service Provider – Service Aggregator – Service Gateway
  6. 6. Did you know? According to the DSL Forum as of June 2003 ! the total worldwide number of DSL subscribers reached 46.7 million ! Western Europe showed the greatest 6-month growth with 12.8 million subscribers ! The Asia-Pacific region has the greatest number at 17.8 million ! South Korea remains the only country to have achieved mass market status with 29.7% of its phone lines delivering DSL services
  7. 7. Why is OSGi successful in many Networked Services Szenarios and Environments? ! A short comparison of OSGi and MHP can give some hints ! MHP – Multimedia Home Platform (Part of the DVB Specifications) ! Similar basic Requirements: ! Common execution environment on different Set Top Boxes ! Applications from different independent sources / service providers ! Enable an open horizontal market for digital TV Services

The OSGi model was more complete and extendible to become a key architectural component in the networked world. ! (However, the potential of a MHP / OSGi synergy still has to be made effective!)

  20. 20. Things were evolving in two directions... ! As we just saw, OSGi can be used in many environments like Automotiv, Home, Industry... while in the same time ! In the initial Residential Gateway and Home Services Szenario OSGi technology now will be used in many places, not only the Residential Gateway.

  26. 26. Seamless services over different venues is another opportunity ! All these “islands” eventually should to be integrated (analogy: network islands in the home) ! For the user, to take his services anyplace ! For the provider/operator it is an advantage, if diff. venues would use common/compatible/interoperable architectures and components, so his backend and management systems can be used most efficiently ! If he is able to provide his services to the customers (consumer & business) in many environments, he will keep them and win new ones. Home Facility Office Hotel Vehicle Device City-Hotel
