Project by a 5 Company, Cross Industry Group

BT, DGM&S Telecom, Microsoft, Nortel Networks, Siemens

Started March 98, Press announcements in May 98 and November 98


To Create an Open, Technology Independent, Secure, Communication
Services Network API specification

To open up opportunities and provide greater service possibilities
between both network based services and those offered by Service

Service rich environment

The API will allow secure access to core and advanced capabilities embedded in the networks of today’s
telephone companies while being sufficiently adaptable to address similar capabilities in future
communication technologies. The scope of the activity includes all kinds of communication capabilities such
as telephone technologies (wireline, wireless, and IP telephony), as well as video and data communications.

The API will not directly open up the networks' signalling for public usage. Rather, network capabilities will
be encapsulated and made visible using object technology in a secure, manageable, and billable manner.
Client access to these capabilities will be realised using object access technologies such as COM or CORBA.

The Parlay API will allow a wide range of new communication services to be built and deployed both within
the network and outside of the network. This will yield opportunities for third parties to create a diverse set
of new "value added" services and make these available to the mass market. Ultimately, this will allow
customers to buy integrated communications/telephony applications focused on their own niche market at
their neighbourhood computer store or download them via the Internet from their favourite Independent
Software Vendor (ISV). It is possible that such services will be billed on a basis different from today’s
telephony services following, for example, the micro-billing concepts now being introduced for the Internet.
This and other secondary effects offer potentially massive revenue enhancement opportunities in the
convergence of network-based telecommunication, CTI, and IT technologies.

The Parlay Group plans to produce a non-proprietary open interface for use by anyone, including the world’s
carriers, equipment and technology suppliers, third party service providers, and ISVs.
