Grid Infrastructure, Service Oriented Architecture, Remote Instrumentation Services
Remote Instrumentation Services can provide unprecedented boost to the generalized use of sophisticated and costly scientific equipment, and foster the diffusion of eScience applications. However, this paradigm does not only apply to large-scale laboratories and devices, but it can be fruitfully employed even with smaller and relatively widespread measurement instrumentation adopted in engineering applications. In this context, we consider the case of telecommunication measurements, and of their execution within the eInfrastructure, by using a subset of the service capabilities. We highlight some specific aspects of this environment, and we present an application example and some performance evaluation results.
