BEA's new global telecommunications initiative 

Innovation Calling
"...there's no ignoring that the proliferation of wireless devices and, more significantly, the combining of devices, such as cell phones with cameras and handhelds that provide voicemail capabilities as well as facilitate e-mail and instant messaging, are expanding the complexity of wireless networks and fueling an increasing demand for efficient services delivery.

Indeed, the prevailing theme at this particular press conference centered around the notion that the copper wire may soon go the way of the rotary dial telephone and the typewriter. Internet telephony has come of age, thanks to the emergence of the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) developed by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) that establishes point-to-point connections between devices across Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP) networks. In essence, telephony uses SIP to function as a Web application in much the same way e-mail and Web sites function through the SMTP and HTTP protocols, respectively.

Apparently, this evolutionary development is providing fertile ground for an emerging software-driven solution known as a Service Delivery Platform (SDP) that is open, standards-based, and for the developer removes the underlying complexities of network architectures. Telecommunications operators and service providers can adopt this technology to streamline service delivery that historically could only be offered through proprietary network-based environments."

Ontology Driven Architectures and Potential Uses of the Semantic Web in Software Engineering 

Ontology Driven Architectures and Potential Uses of the Semantic Web in Software Engineering
This note is primarily intended to stimulate further work and debate across a broad range of Information Technology disciplines and initiatives. As such it does not contain any direct recommendations, but instead centers on ideas for the application of the Semantic Web in Systems and Software Engineering."
