MSF R2 Service Architecture

As Internet and IP technologies are increasing service expectations, the number of resources available to create, deploy, and manage new services have reduced. The result is that expectations for new services are outpacing the ability to deliver them. We explore the limitations of traditional voice service architecture, and propose a new architectural solution to address these shortcomings.

Linked Enterprise Data: Data at the heart of the company

The data silos of today's business information systems (IS) applications, and the pressure from the current economic climate, globalization, and the Internet make it critical for companies to learn how to manage and extract value from their data. Linked enterprise data (LED) combines the benefits of business intelligence (BI), master data management (MDM), service-oriented architecture (SOA), and search engines to create links among existing data, break down data walls, provide an open, secure,... Read More

Next-Generation VoIP Network Architecture

With network operators facing eventual equipment obsolescence in their existing narrowband public switched telephone networks (PSTNs), the Multiservice Switching Forum (MSF) expects that end-to-end voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) solutions will necessarily replace PSTNs in the medium term. What are the primary issues that must be addressed to define a large-scale VoIP network capable of supporting full PSTN equivalence? Read More

The Global MSF Interoperability (GMI) 2004 Executive Summary

True multi-service, multi-vendor global networks are the future of the telecommunications industry. However, mazes of international standards and protocols can create barriers rather than solutions. For service providers and system suppliers alike, implementing standards for interoperability is far from simple. The MultiService Switching Forum (MSF) fills the void by developing implementation agreements that take standards from theory into practice. Read More

IMS Reconciliation White Paper

Widespread acceptance of the principles in the Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) is nearing a level that would indicate the communications industry is close to reaching a de facto convergence architecture. We look at similarities and differences between the MultiService Forum R2 (physical) architecture and the 3GPP R6 Core IMS functional architecture. Read More
