PLASTIC - Providing Lightweight and Adaptable Service Technology for pervasive Information and Communication

The core objective of the PLASTIC project is to enable the development and deployment of application services that are cost-effective both in terms of development and usage costs for Beyond 3G (B3G) networks, regarding financial as well as resource usage aspects. Service development platforms for B3G networks will be effective and successful only if the services they deliver are adaptive and offer quality of service guarantees to users despite the uncontrolled open wireless environment, which will be a key focus of the PLASTIC project.

The PLASTIC project will specifically address the above objectives by developing a platform for the development and deployment of mobile, adaptive application services. The PLASTIC platform will complement service delivery platforms that have been investigated in the context of cellular networks and further extended to integrate the WLAN and/or to adapt service provisioning to the specifics of wireless, resource-constrained devices. The PLASTIC platform will in particular allow the development of application services tailored to the networks that are not integrated with the cellular, but that may possibly be combinedwith services from the cellular if network connectivity allows it and if it is cost-effective to do so.

C-LAB will contribute to the project an extensive know-how in the middleware area especially pertaining to service-oriented architectures (SOA). This contribution will focus on increasing context-awareness of mobile services and casting the resulting technology into real world applications dealing with the support of-for instance-mobile workers and mobile e-services in general. The subject of PLASTIC is thus closely linked to the mobility topic of C-LAB.
