Title: System and method for service development over content-specific sessions

Abstract: A system and method for deploying a resource over a content-specific session is provided. A client requests a resource from a service provider, such as an ISP. The service provider provisions the order and records the order in a data store. A service login identifier is created with attributes, such as bandwidth, that correspond to the requested resource, such as a movie or network accessible storage. The client logs into the service provider using the service login identifier and the client's normal password. The service login is authenticated and a session is established using the attributes that correspond to the requested resource. The client is directed to the requested resource by using a resource URL that was provided by the service provider, such as a URL to a requested movie or network accessible storage.
