Ericsson Composition Engine

Grow and evolve your Value Added Services business

Create innovative new services and share key assets to open new revenue streams with Ericsson Composition Engine, part of the Ericsson Service Enablement suite.

The Ericsson Composition Engine is an open, versatile and future proof service exposure and application platform enabling service providers to expose network and business assets enabling totally new revenue streams and business models as well as easily create and combine new and existing Value Added Services.

The Composition Engine can be used for various use cases in the same deployment.

It can be deployed as a Next Generation Application Platform, allowing deployment of readily off-the-shelf converged services from Ericsson and/or third parties.

Secondly, the Ericsson Composition Engine can be used as a Service Capability Interaction Manager (SCIM or Service Broker), allowing composition of new applications out of existing service components. As such, advanced SCIM, TRIM, IM-SSF and reverse IM-SSF scenarios are fully supported. The service components can be deployed on the Composition Engine itself, or reside on a remote application server and exposed through a variety of technologies like SIP, CAP, INAP, MAP, Diameter and many more. Compositions may also include mash-ups with Web 2.0 services such as Facebook, Last.fm etc., enabling new and differentiating service offerings. Convergence, combinations of circuit switched, IP and WebServices, is fully supported by the Composition Engine.

Thirdly, the Composition Engine includes a Service Exposure feature which allows operators to safely open their networks to third-party service providers, bridging the telecom and IT domains. By exposing network capabilities such as location, presence, terminal capabilities, call control etc., operators can make these capabilities accessible to service providers within and outside the operator domain. The Exposure feature includes standardized interfaces based on Parlay X and REST, giving access to a wide range of vendors and IT developers as well as pre-integrated and verified components for real-time charging and flexible charging models for content and service providers. The rich messaging support, allows total freedom in choosing off-the-shelf applications and messaging enabler vendors. A Service Capability Creation module ensures flexibility for operators to adapt applications business logic and web service interfaces.

Finally, the Composition Engine features a powerful Service Creation and Composition environment, allowing implementation of new applications or service components through Java EE development and/or by orchestration of existing service components into new composite applications. The Composition Engine’s Advanced Composition feature includes an intuitive graphical development environment designed to support rapid creation, deployment and modification of compositions, allowing short development lead times. Constituent services can be reused over and over again, as part of new composite applications.
