ERUDITE partners have successfully developed and extended High Speed Broadband infrastructure to enable a rising number of stakeholders and citizens to contribute to the digital economy and society. To fully exploit the economic and social potential of these networks new services need to be designed to meet public, private and community needs and justify public investments in infrastructure and uses. To achieve these aims the project will undertake the design of new services supported by open innovation processes involving and empowering businesses, citizens and public administrations; thereby stimulating demand and local innovation capacity potential, enabling stakeholders to be partners in the creation and operation of services that improve territorial potential. To increase understanding of the design, operation and impacts of services, the Open Innovation process will be supported by Social and Economic Return on Investment (SEROI) studies providing data to illustrate global social and economic impacts and support more targeted investments.
Whereas digitalization and development of innovation capacity are essential elements of current policy instruments, the exploitation of new digital opportunities to support employment growth, quality of life and territorial attractiveness is insubstantial. ERUDITE partners have concluded that the development, design and implementation of effective digital services in Europe requires an innovative re¬thinking of the process of: identifying appropriate services, designing demand stimulation and digital service delivery strategies and evaluating return on investment.
Erudite will define sustainable business models for digital service development and deployment through the refinement of open innovation methodology integrating SEROI; by involving multiple stakeholders in design, delivery and ownership of services, reassuring investors by demonstrating wider and most importantly, measurable social and economic benefits.
The project designed and delivered an Intelligent Service Access (ISA) solution that is used to move network intelligence from its core into Iskratel’s SI3000 Lumia and MSAN access nodes.
The project adapted an Iskratel’s call server for connection with the intelligent service platform provided by ElephantTalk, a Dutch telecommunication company.
The RADIUS protocol was implemented for network access authorization, authentication and accounting (AAA) within the Iskratel’s SI2000 system.
The DIAMETER protocol was implemented for authorization, authentication and accounting within an IMS call server from the Iskratel’s SI3000 product line.
NGN stands for evolution of telecommmunication environments and is in fact a unified, IP-based infrastructure that provides more bandwidth, flexibility and open interfaces for voice, data and multimedia services.
Upon introducing the IMS (IP Multimedia Subsystem) infrastructure into its network, Telekom Slovenije partners up with LTFE to analyze individual IMS infrastructure segments and to set up a model IMS infrastructure within its network.
The project includes research, development and implementation activities and is carried out by LTFE and a partner company active in the field of WiMAX technology.
SINTESIO stands for NGN Interoperability Test Laboratory.
