Falcarin, Paolo ; Yu, Jian (2007)

Web Services are often used for providing and composing business services but this approach does not scale easily for telecommunication services and for value added ones, composing services offered by IT providers with telecom operators ones. The typical request-response interaction style is the main bottleneck when applying web services protocols to the telecom domain, which requires higher performances and needs efficient ways to handle notifications of events produced by different network resources in the telecommunication infrastructure. This paper evaluates benefits and drawbacks of Web Service applications within a Telecom domain, analyzing current standardization proposals for asynchronous web services, which are a necessary evolution towards a fully interoperable telecommunication service oriented architecture.
