  • The Good Design is Good Business community is excited to host Irv Badr, Worldwide Go-to-Market Manager: Energy, Utilities and Communications Industries at IBM Rational. Irv is co-chair of MARTE, TelcoML and Object Management Group?s Smart Energy standards. Irv has written over fifty papers on real-time and embedded systems and model-driven development in his nearly twenty years? experience in developing software architecture and marketing complex systems.
  • Author Note: Optional Rational slide. Graphic is available in English only.
  • Software Enabled Services (SES) SES Service Management Interface (SES SMI )
  • Service logic in SoaML can be specified using any kind of behavioral formalism
  • Use this slide only if operation is not trivial (and in this case, isn’t this an issue?) –

    2. 2. Agenda Status: TelcoML is now an OMG standard TelcoML Motivation and global overview TelcoML marketing activities Details of TelcoML 2
    3. 3. Time-line for TelcoML standard Past – Jan 2008 : Start of specification process – March 2011: First presentation to the the OMG Architecture Board – Use cases presented by IBM and France Telecom – March-June 2011: Intensive work to fix AB reported problems – December 2011: TelcoML became a Global standard SPECIFICATION AVAILABLE at: To Come – September 2012: End of finalization period - correction of bugs reported by implementers - Integration of TM Forum’s SES/SMI and possible updates to align with GSMA/OneAPI evolution – 2013 : TelcoML v2 with library 3
    4. 4. TelcoML Motivation Modeling Tools Telco2 APIs (SoaML/UML) Customization of SoaML to the telecom domain SoaML == modeling of SOA with UML TelcoML reuses <<ServiceInterface>> from SoaML Content of this specification – Telecom Enabler library expressed in UML (SoaML) – Service Composition Profile : Specify composite services (Telco+IT components) using UML, executable/technology agnostic 4
    5. 5. Introduction to SoaMLservices are defined through these set of basic information The name of the service, suggesting its purpose. The provided and required interfaces, thereby defining the functional capabilities that are provided by the service and those that it requires of its users. – Not how the service is implemented, but rather the interaction between the consumers and providers of this service. Any protocol that specifies rules for how the functional capabilities are used or in what order. Constraints that reflect what successful use of the service is intended to accomplish and how it will be evaluated. Qualities that service consumers should expect and that providers are expected to provide, such as cost, availability, performance, footprint, suitability to the task, competitive information, and so forth. Policies for using the service, such as security and transaction scopes for maintaining security and integrity or for recovering from the inability to successfully perform the service or any required service. 5

    9. 9. TelcoML Details Two parts in TelcoML – Enabler Library: Representing in UML, popular Telco API’s – Composition Profile: means to model in UML executable service compositions. These two parts are complementary and may be used independently from each other 9
    10. 10. TelcoML Enabler libraryGoal: reformulate in SoaML, interfaces relevant to Telco API facilities Typical Usage: Code generation from UML Tools (such as IBM RSA) to execution frameworks (such as JOSIF) Relation with SDOs: GSMA, TMF Main interfaces: – Messaging: SMS & MMS (from GSMA/OneAPI) + generic (simpified) Messaging Interface – Click to call – Location (from GSMA/OneAPI) – Synchronization – Voice recognition and TTS Annex: – SES SMI (from TMF) – Waiting finalization for being incorporated 10
    11. 11. Example : OneAPI/SMS reformulated in SoaML <<ServiceInterface>> SMS +send(address: Address[1..*], message: String, notifyUrl: Url[0..1], correlator: String, senderName: String[0..1], charging: String[0..1]): SendResponse +getDeliveryStatus(messageId: String): DeliveryStatusResponse +startDeliveryReceipt(notifyUrl: Url, correlator: String, filterCriteria: String): StatusResponse +stopDeliveryReceipt(correlator: String): StatusResponse +receivedSms(registrationId: String) +startSmsNotification(notifyUrl: Url, correlator: String, destination: String, criteria: String): StatusResponse +stopSmsNotification(correlator: String): StatusResponse <<uses>> <<datatype>> <<datatype>> Address Url <<ServiceInterface>> SMSDeliveryNotification <<datatype>> DeliveryStatus <<uses>> +notifyDeliveryReceipt(correlator: String, deliveryStatus: DeliveryStatus) +address: Address +status: String <<ServiceInterface>> SMSReceptionNotification Send an SMS +notifyReception(correlator: String) P a ra me t Opt D e s c r ip t io n er a ddre s s No L is t o f a d d r e s s e s t o w h ic h t h e S M S w ill b e s e n t <<datatype>> <<datatype>> me s s a g <<datatype>> N o Th e m e s s a g e to b e s e n t DeliveryStatusResponse SendResponse e StatusResponse n o t if y U R Ye s U R L t o n o t if y t h e a p p lic a t io n f o r +statusResponse: StatusResponse +statusResponse: StatusResponse +code: String +deliveryStatus: DeliveryStatus[*] L d e liv e r y r e c e ip t s +messageId: String c o r r e la t +reason: String Y e s C o r r e la t o r f o r in c lu s io n in a or d e liv e r y r e c e ip t n o t if ic a t io n s e nde rN Ye s N a me o f the s e nd e r to a p p e a r o n a me t h e t e r m in a l C h a r g in Ye s C h a r g e t o a p p ly t o t h is m e s s a g e g11

    13. 13. TM Forum SES/SMI Draft: Reformulation in TelcoML Interface Data Types (first level)13
    14. 14. TelcoML Service Composition Profile Customize Service Composition from SoaML Service logic in SoaML can be specified using any kind of behavioral formalism TelcoML: – Selects a behavior paradigm suitable for expressing executable complex behavior (like voice-based interaction) => State Machines – Select notation conventions in line with ITU-T SDL experience => Transition centric notation. – Adds few specific icons: service call distinguished from computations done locally – Adds triggers and actions for voice interaction (Play, PlayAll, Inactivity Event, Reject Event, and so on). 14
    15. 15. TelcoML Service Composition Profile: Example - Executablity is more prescriptive than SoaML - Defined through State Machines (transition-centric presentation)15
    16. 16. TelcoML and JOSIF ToolingOur Expectations: 1 -Import of SoaML interfaces, in particular the TelcoML Library -Generate code to call the telco ‘s enabler implementations 2 -Import of TelcoML compositions and generate corresponding code to16 execute them
