     What do we mean by the TEAHA Cluster Classification ?

Cluster Classification
n    “A system of classification of entities into groups or categories, with a structure that
     indicates the relationships between them”.
Why do we need a “TEAHA Classification”?
n    To group (or ‘cluster’) TEAHA entities according to common characteristics (attributes
     and services), in order to simplify description and interworking
n    To express ‘inheritance’ relationships between the groups (resulting in a semi-
     hierarchical structure)
n    To provide a set of high level common characteristics that allows interworking
     between entities on different networks, protocols and device description mechanisms
n    To express common and individual characteristics at all levels of the hierarchy
n    To allow the establishment and control of interworking between TEAHA entities based
     on the above
What TEAHA entities do we need a “Classification” for?
n    Appliances / Devices and their characteristics / services
n    Controllers
n    Remote Services
n    ‘Actors’ (service providers / consumers etc.) ?                                       16
