The OASIS Telecom MS is pleased to announce the 'Adopting SOA for Telecom' Workshop

The Telecom MS is pleased to announce the 'Adopting SOA for Telecom' Workshop on 30 September 2008 at Ditton Manor, UK.

The advent of converged networks, Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA), Web Services and Business Process Modeling (BPM) provides a technological opportunity for modern telecommunications carriers and enterprises for developing intelligent network based services through the use of intelligent integration middleware. Today, SOA which was devised to solve business problems associated with intra- and inter-company cooperation is renewing the promise of simplifying telecommunications service combination and orchestration. As such, Communication Enabled Applications (CEA) is emerging as an integral component of unifying IT and network based services and applications.

In an SOA environment, there are mismatches between the requirements of the IT world and those of the telecommunications world in such areas as security, raw performance, service availability and important characteristic of telecommunications services such service level agreements
(SLAs). Given the number and complexity of these mismatches, it is reasonable to assume that the task of integrating SOA in Telecommunications environment is challenging.

The workshop, sponsored by Nortel & IBM, aims to discuss current limitations of adopting SOA in the Telecommunication field. The workshop seeks speakers from operators, vendors, enterprises, practitioners and researchers in a wide range of topics concerned with SOA in telecommunication
