The evolution of communications is accelerating from simple voice calls to radically connecting anything at any time in any place. After the adoption of cell phones into the phone industry, the pace from feature phones, smart phones, pads, to Machine-to-Machine (M2M) devices, is growing at an exponential rate. The network infrastructure has evolved at the same rate – from simple in-band signaling, to Intelligent Networks, Advanced Intelligent Networks, 2G/3G,IMS and LTE. As devices and networks evolve, the network service platform has also evolved to support consumer demand, complex business solutions, and rise in multi-media services. From the early Service Control Points and Service Nodes to IMS Application Servers, Service Delivery Platforms must accommodate the next generation of services driven by Java for applications in WebRTC, M2M, E2E, and Cloud computing.
