Today most of the devices used for telephony serv- ices use proprietary and location dependent imple- mentations for storing and accessing phonebook and contact list data. There exists a large variety of ven- dor specific address book and contact list formats. Users are not able to exchange and access their indi- vidual phonebooks or contact lists on different types of phone devices and telephony applications or services. With this solution it is possible to synchronize the phonebook and contact list data of a wireline phone or mobile phone automatically with the phonebook and contact list of Voice-over-IP phone or Voice- over-IP application and vice versa.

Today most of the devices used for telephony serv-ices use proprietary and location dependent imple-mentations for storing and accessing phonebook andcontact list data. There exists a large variety of ven-dor� specific address book and contact list formats.Users are not able to exchange and access their indi-vidual phonebooks or contact lists on different typesof� phone� devices� and� telephony applications orservices.
With this solution it is possible to synchronize thephonebook and contact list data of a wireline phoneor mobile phone automatically with the phonebookand� contact� list� of� Voice-over-IP� phone� or Voice-over-IP application and vice versa.
The core of the Ubiquitous Network Address Bookarchitecture is an infrastructure that houses the net-work� addressing� functions,� as� well� as� a� completesecurity layer for a wide range of devices like wire-line� phones,� mobile� phones, Voice-over-IP phonesand web-based telephony services. Based on series ofXML APIs (eXtensible Markup Language Applica-tion Programming Interface) the Ubiquitous NetworkAddress� Book� infrastructure� integrates fully withsoftware� providers� frontend� Web,� WAP (WirelessApplication Protocol) and CTI (Computer TelephonyIntegration) applications and provides a unique wayof implementation device independent address bookapplications.
The� Ubiquitous� Network� Address� Book� solutionsupports seamless� integration� into� carrier� and� cus-tomer� directory� database,� including� LDAP� (Light-weight Directory Access Protocol), SQL (StructuredQuery Language), Oracle� and� others.� The� solutionalso supports t...
