Given the recent advances in telecommunication services, new service operations are needed that support not only existing network services, but also information and communication providing services, such as multimedia services. It is particularly important that service usage information should be gathered, processed, analyzed and presented properly for smooth service provisioning and business support. This paper defines a reference model for service usage information and an implementation model for establishing the functions needed to gather and process this information. The results of an service operation system as implemented in NTT multimedia service trials, currently underway in the city of Urayasu, are also described.
