Title: Semantic Integration in Telecommunications
Author(s): Vilho Räisänen
Reference: pp291-300
Keywords: semantic integration, information models, knowledge models, reasoning, semantic web, REST
Abstract: In this article, we discuss semantic integration challenges encountered in
multi-vendor systems integration as well as ways of addressing them. These
challenges are relevant to not only to traditional bespoke Operations
Support Systems and Business Support Systems (OSS/BSS) system
integration approach in telecommunications, but also to the use of Serviceoriented
Architecture (SoA) architectural style, for example. In addition to
data integration, we discuss the relevance of protocols to semantic
integration, both for “incumbent” SoA technologies such as SOAP as well
as “challenger” ones. Finally, we describe ongoing implementation work in
the area of demonstrator platform leveraging knowledge management,
which supports semantic integration and data federation.
