Enables the rapid creation of new services, or extension to existing services but re-using existing service components. Sometimes called: Service Broker, IN mediation
The Service Interaction application lets service providers:
The application blends together services, by managing the signalling interactions between them in a centralized service layer platform, which sits between the network and the services themselves. It provides service broking and service interaction functionality for SS7 and this can be extended to include IMS (SCIM) networks.
Unlike rudimentary “chaining” which has severe combinatorial problems and gets very complex quickly, the OpenCloud solution enables sophisticated interaction logic that provides flexibility without complexity. Using the Service Interaction model, you can change interaction logic without changing service logic. The Service Interaction application controls the sequence of services that it invokes, managing and coordinating the interaction between each service.
