Nokia Research Center
Nokia (www.nokia.com) is the world leader in mobility, driving the transformation and growth of the converging internet and communications industries. Nokia creates a wide range of mobile devices and provides people with experiences in music, navigation, video, television, imaging, games, and business mobility through these devices. Nokia also provides equipment, solutions, and services for communication networks.
Nokia Research Center (NR0043), a separate unit within Nokia, is not attached to any specific product development business unit. NRC has more than 1,100 researchers, engineers, and scientists working in the Nokia research centers and lablets that Nokia maintains around the globe. They come from a variety of technical backgrounds, but are all working on research issues relating to mobility of voice and data, management, and communications.
NoTA mobile terminal architectures
For the ITEA MARTES (model-based approach to Real-time embedded systems) European research project (www.martes-itea.org), NRC worked on a mobile terminal case study focused on communication-centric mobile terminal architectures that are designed for the digital convergence era. In this context, NRC has adopted Intel® CoFluent™ Design’s MCSE method for architectural modeling and used Intel® CoFluent™ studio as mobile device platform modeling toolset.
NRC performs significant research activity in the area of mobile terminal architectures, where it has developed a service-oriented architecture concept called network on-terminal architecture (NoTA, www.notaworld.org). NoTA is an interconnect-centric modular service-oriented architecture for current and future mobile device platforms. NoTA provides superior performance and effective horizontalization possible via eased integration. The work of Nokia in the MARTES project is closely connected to NoTA
Using Intel® CoFluent™ Studio for platform architecture development
The NoTA platform architecture development method aims at overcoming these pitfalls of informal practices. NoTA-based systems are engineered in a systematic requirements–driven manner. The NoTA goals include:
• Separation of concerns
• Model-based engineering
• Reuse of models
