A layered hierarchical switching-software technology is presented, which is based on an object-oriented design approach that improves software reusability and productivity. This technology enables a non-stop, service-enhanceable software environment called NOSES, which satisfies customer demands for quick provisioning of new service features without interrupting service, and which improves software reliability. This technology was developed as part of an overall plan to establish a communications software platform that can be customized for use by various communications systems. This paper describes on-line partial-file modification, which can be applied to communications systems that require resident program modification or initializations without program loading.
