This paper describes a new platform developed at Telefonica I+D, based on Speech Technology, for being integrated in the Mobile Telephone Network, and specially suitable for quick incorporation of new customer demanded services. This multiapplication platform has been conceived as "call-basis" driven, that means, that the number called by the user will determine which application must be run at each time in order to serve him. The system permits dynamically redistribute the lines assigned to each application following traffic criteria. In the other hand, the use of dynamic libraries allow a quick procedure to update, incorporate or eliminate applications. The integration of computers with the telephone network into commercial equipments has become feasible due to the proliferation of inexpensive Personal Computers and advances in speech processing. The availability of the Speech Technology Products of Telefonica of Spain [1] [2] [3] [4] has made possible to develop speech based servers for new telephone services in a rapid and reasonable way.
