In addition to my studies at RWTH Aachen University, I am also involved in some other projects. On this page I present a small selection of them. Most of the projects are of interest projects, as well as some that result from past projects. These include in particular the projects related to the alumni association of my former school.
All projects outside my study projects are volunteer activities for personal interest.
Service Customization in Convergent Networks
As part of my studies at RWTH Aachen University a seminar paper originated to the topic "Service Customization in Convergent Networks".
Abstract: Currently networks are divided into fixed networks (ISDN, PSTN), and mobile networks (GPRS, UMTS). This scenario will be substituted with a new kind of network called the Next Generation Network (NGN), where all services can be used independently of the users’ location or hardware. To achieve the goal of being able to use your preferred services in different locations, with variable hardware, and with the possibility of up- or downgrading the service level according to your needs, services have to be customized. This is why different customization techniques have been developed until now. Basically you can distinguish between approaches working at the transport layer and others working at the application layer.
This work gives a survey of the elaborated models of a NGN, different negotiation techniques working at the transport layers, and different customization techniques working at the service layer.
