• Integration of other service components such as Service Creation Environment (SCE) and Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) middleware’s, Web 2.0 and Enterprise 2.0 which use a restricted Web services model

The IMS SDP Working Group will be officially launched at the Informa IMS/SDP Summit in November 2008. This new working group allows both member companies and individual contributors to work together toward the creation, testing, and integration of SDP and IMS/NGN architecture.
