Advanced Prosumer Service Integration Intelligence

The APSINT project team develops solutions that allow to simply, efficiently and securely combine telco functionality and Web 2.0 content. The goal is a concept of a service setting for new, mobile, telco-enabled social services.

Motivation & Challenge

In the last couple of years there was a new trend in both the development and usage of mobile services (Apps). New end user devices, operating systems and accompanying SDKs allow a multitude of developers to create a variety of small and useful applications. Inspired by Web2.0 applications, the apps changed from traditional telco-like services to highly innovative ones created by users for users. At the moment many developers take advantage of combining information from different sources on the Internet. The aim of APSINT is to open and expose telco typical enablers like identity, quality of service, billing, or dependable messaging in an easy and straight forward way to allow developers quick and easy integration of the enablers into their apps.

Focus & Results

Focus are investigations on novel approaches to include telco specific, unique assets into mobile apps, as well as the combination with data of Internet web2.0 sites.
