Architecture for generic service development on mobile handsets
Several actors are involved in all layers the handset architecture, from hardware producers to service providers, and the numbers are raising. Lack of collaboration amongst these actors across and within layers has led to a complex development-process of services and applications, which in turn leads to difficult use of such applications and services. In this thesis we took a closer look at the mobile phone, examined challenges surrounding development and use of services on mobile phones, and found initiatives by actors to handle these challenges. This knowledge was used to design and implement a solution to handle identified challenges. The solution involves using the UICC as the main application platform and container of state, with the possibility to deploy handset-specific parts of an application on the handset. Standardized tools on the handset give UICC-applications the means to communicate with external processes and users. In addition the network operator is given an important role to administrate and adapt applications on the UICC as services change communication technology and application standard. The designed architecture facilitates more widespread development and use of services on the mobile handset. The architecture is realizable through current platforms and standards. By implementing a simulation and subset of our design on a handset the design was substantiated.

HiPerWA: High Performance Wireless Analytics. A survey into the challenges of constructing, managing, debugging and optimizing an in-production large-scale enterprise network Johansen, Bjørn Ludvig Langaas (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2016-06-01)Enterprise wireless networks are becoming larger and larger, with more and more users and devices connecting to the networks. This requires the infrastructure to be closely monitored and adjusted to ensure an optimum experience for users and their devices. Existing proprietary solutions exist, but are either costly, resource demanding, rigid or may not be able to deliver the functionality that is ...
Budrionis, Andrius (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2015-10-13)This thesis provides a detailed outlook on research in telementoring, identifying the fundamental limitations hindering its smooth integration into clinical practice. The findings are based on literature reviews and user involvement, minimizing the gap between research and actual use of the system. To address the identified shortcomings, a service-oriented approach to clinical VC systems was proposed. ...
Decentralized Orchestration of Open Services- Achieving High Scalability and Reliability with Continuation-Passing Messaging Haque, Abul Ahsan Md Mahmudul (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2017-12-14)An ever-increasing number of web applications are providing open services to a wide range of applications. Whilst traditional centralized approaches to services orchestration are successful for enterprise service-oriented systems, they are subject to serious limitations for orchestrating the wider range of open services. Dealing with these limitations calls for decentralized approaches. However, ...
