Title
(EN) METHOD OF OPERATING A COMMUNICATION DEVICE AND RELATED COMMUNICATION DEVICE
(FR) PROCÉDÉ D'EXPLOITATION D'UN DISPOSITIF DE COMMUNICATION ET DISPOSITIF DE COMMUNICATION CORRESPONDANT
Abstract
(EN) Method of operating a communication device offering a plurality of features (10) by means of a plurality of virtual machines (8) which run on a virtualized representation of a plurality of hardware components (6). The method comprises: obtaining a mapping (12,13,14,15) between at least some features of said plurality of features and corresponding sets of virtual machines of said plurality of virtual machines and hardware components of said plurality of hardware components which are required to enable said features; and upon deciding to activate or deactivate at least one group of features of said plurality of features, switching on or off virtual machines of said plurality of virtual machines and hardware components of said plurality of hardware components depending on said mapping.
(FR) L'invention porte sur un procédé d'exploitation d'un dispositif de communication offrant une pluralité de fonctions (10) au moyen d'une pluralité de machines virtuelles (8) qui tournent sur une représentation virtualisée d'une pluralité de composants matériels (6). Le procédé consiste à : obtenir un mappage (12, 13, 15) entre au moins certaines fonctions de ladite pluralité de fonctions et des ensembles correspondants de machines virtuelles de ladite pluralité de machines virtuelles et de composants matériels de ladite pluralité de composants matériels qui sont requis pour activer lesdites fonctions; et lorsqu'il est décidé d'activer ou de désactiver au moins un groupe de fonctions de ladite pluralité de fonctions, mettre sous tension ou hors tension des machines virtuelles de ladite pluralité de machines virtuelles et des composants matériels de ladite pluralité de composants matériels selon ledit mappage.
