Abstract

This paper presents the results of experiments with an active gatekeeper for VoIP. Problems arising with supplementary service programs uploaded by users: such as event conversion and detection of feature interactions between the programs, are presented and their solutions are proposed. The VoIP gatekeeper (GK) and the validation server, based on architecture, proposed by the authors at IWAN2000 and called STAR, were implemented and evaluated. With the proposed GK, the uploaded program is described using a declarative language ESTR instead of using a procedural language, such as Java. Unlike most conventional architectures, here, one common execution environment is used for execution with all up-loaded programs. 12 service programs were tested to evaluate the proposed systems. Results show that the proposed GK and validation server were reasonable. . . .
