02.573GPPMobile Station Application Execution Environment (MExE) Service description Stage 1TS
For the purposes of this TS the following definitions apply:
applet: a small programme that is intended not to be run on its own, but rather to be embedded inside another application
application: MExE information in the form of software, scripts, applications, associated resources (e.g. libraries) and/or data
content: data and/or information associated with, or independent of, a particular application which may be presented to or collected from a user
MExE Classmark: a MExE Classmark identifies a category of MExE MS supporting MExE functionality with a minimum level of processing, memory, display and interactive capabilities. Several MExE Classmarks may be defined to differentiate between the functionalities offered by different MExE MSs. A MExE application or applet defined as being of a specific MExE Classmark indicates that it is supportable by a MExE MS of that Classmark.
MExE server: a node supporting MExE services in the MExE service environment
MExE service: a service enhanced (or made possible) by MExE technology
MExE service environment: Depending on the configuration of the PLMN, the operator shall be able to offer support to MExE services from traditional GSM nodes, IN nodes, operator-specific nodes, operator-franchised nodes and services provider nodes, together with access to nodes external (i.e. vendor-specific) to the PLMN depending on the nature of the MExE service. These nodes are considered to constitute the MExE service environment. The MExE service environment shall support direct MExE MS to MExE MS interaction of MExE services.
MExE service provider: an organisation which delivers MExE services to the subscriber. This is normally the PLMN operator, but could be an organisation with MExE responsibility (which may have been delegated by the PLMN operator).
MExE subscriber: the owner of a GSM subscription who has entered into an agreement with a MExE service provider for MExE services. Access to MExE services though other types of networks is out of scope of this specification.
subscriber: the term subscriber in the context of this TS refers to a MExE subscriber
user: the user of an MExE MS , who may or may not be the subscriber.
