The Object Management Group has formed a special interest group to focus on the telecommunications industry. Its aim is to ensure that the standards the Object Group defines take into account the needs of the telecommunications industry, specifically that they satisfy requirements for scalability, performance, and real-time and timely operation. The Object Group says the distributed nature of telecommunications systems makes the application of object technology ideal. The interest group will assess suggestions for extensions to the Object Group standards designed to satisfy the needs of the telecommunications market, and will recommend them for adoption where it feels this is appropriate. The interest group will liaise with telecommunications groups, primarily the TINA-C consortium of telecommunications carriers and equipment manufacturers that was formed to standardise the use of object technology in telecommunications systems. Its first meeting will be in December in New Jersey.
