Telecom transformation requires new services architecture

As telecom networks converge on IP, the promise has been that new services will be easy and fast to configure. But reality needs to catch up with the promise. In this podcast, CIMI Corp. President Tom Nolle talks about ExperiaSphere, his open source next-generation network (NGN) services architecture.

As telecom networks converge, the promise of IP has been that new services will be fast and easy to configure. But reality needs to catch up. IP multimedia subsystem (IMS) was supposed to be the solution for the next-generation network services platform, but it could become obsolete before its time.

Enter a new open source next-gen network services architecture that may stand IMS on its head. In this podcast, we talk to CIMI Corp. President Tom Nolle about why he believes the telecom industry needs ExperiaSphere, his open source network services architecture that works around standards in the making.

A Next-Generation Networks Service Architecture (NGNSA) consists of three primary layers, as IMS does. They are Application, Services, and Resources. The Application and Resources layers are joined to the Service structure through a facilitation process set (Service and Application Facilitation). Through these layers, any service framework can link resources and applications in a comparable way.
