Nowadays the demand of sophisticated multimedia telecommunication services is on increase. There is a need to create distributed programs with multimedia data exchange running on a distributed platform. Therefore, is necessary to build a communication service infrastructure to help telecommunication service designers in the development of new applications. In this paper we present a multimedia telecommunication service architecture as a service creation framework. The architecture was designed following the component-oriented paradigm. The base model approach defines a collection of components controlled by connectors that abstract interaction patterns. Besides, we show in this paper the implementation of the component based model applied to the coordination of applications on the Web.
