Summary

Chapter 3 examines the principles of object orientation to pave the way for later chapters of the book where more advanced object oriented technologies are examined and also to demonstrate how this software paradigm can be used in telecommunication systems. Encapsulation, polymorphism, inheritance and interfaces are introduced using the Unified Modeling Language notation. Software modules in switching system's implementations are outlined in order to provide concrete examples of in the field applications of the above concepts.
