Paper Abstract

The transition to digital information and networking of new digital devices lead to considerable changes in the consumer electronic industry. New applications will arise, offering more entertainment, comfort and flexibility. To achieve this, complex problems in communication and distributed systems need to be solved. High requirements on stability, usability, quality and price call for new solutions. This paper describes the concept of In-Home Digital Networks and will then in detail address the WWICE system. This new architecture provides a coherent system environment for the home. It focuses on services and applications, which can easily be accessed and controlled by the user. Application framework and middleware services of the layered software architecture efficiently support development of IHDN applications as well as flexible application control at runtime.
