Description
Bottom rule

IBM WebSphere Presence Server, IBM WebSphere Telecom Web Services Server, IBM WebSphere XML Document Management Server, and IBM WebSphere IMS Connector are high-performance service execution enablers that can help service providers to quickly and efficiently deliver rich, next-generation communications services to market.

WebSphere Presence Server V7.2

WebSphere Presence Server is a stand-alone, carrier-grade server that collects, manages, and distributes real-time information regarding the access, availability, and willingness to communicate of users. It can enable the extension of service provider applications and services to include collaboration information about how to best reach people.

WebSphere Presence Server provides carrier grade capabilities, standards compliance, and service provider extensions that can be integrated across wireline and wireless networks. Leveraging experience from proven IBM presence technologies, WebSphere Presence Server consolidates presence information across disparate devices, applications, and network elements. WebSphere Presence Server can help enhance and increase their service offerings because it supports legacy and next-generation networks, allowing a seamless transition regardless of the network as service providers.

WebSphere Presence Server can help enable service providers to:

  • Increase the intelligence and capabilities of applications, thereby increasing the value to you and revenue opportunity for service providers
  • Improve efficiency and speed time to market for new services by providing independent presence and group lists servers that can span all applications and services
  • Enhance productivity offerings through the integration of presence information with applications such as address books and conferencing
  • Simplify the management of and reduce the cost of aggregating presence information across disparate devices, applications, and network elements

WebSphere Presence Server is application independent and service independent. It can enable the integration of presence information from both client and external presence providers, such as external registrars, location servers, and calendar systems. It supports standard presence information data format (PIDF) and standardized extensions such as the rich presence information data (RPID). WebSphere Presence Server is also flexible to support new application or user defined attributes or information without any change to the Presence Server. This can include information for emerging services such as video conferencing, IPTV, or social networking.

User Agents and applications can interface via standards-based Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) requests as defined by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF): Publish, Subscribe, and Notify. WebSphere Presence Server supports group list and presence authorization rules through standards-based XML Configuration Access Protocol (XCAP) and SIP.

IBM WebSphere Telecom Web Services Server V7.2 is a standards-based gateway for providing and managing third-party access to telecom network capabilities and information that can help Communications Service Providers (CSPs) to quickly and efficiently deliver rich, next-generation communications services to market.

The changing telecommunications market is driving Communications Service Providers (CSPs) to look for new revenue generating services to meet market demands for more content-rich and customized services. Their business is rapidly changing from providing customers a relatively small number of hosted services to a Web 2.0 model of offering services from many third-party developers who utilize easy-to-use telecom services exposed by CSPs to create new, innovative, and highly personalized services.

WebSphere Telecom Web Services Server is a service-oriented architecture (SOA)-based platform for standards-based access to telecom network capabilities, that can help enable CSPs to:

  • Reduce the cost and time to market for new revenue generating services
  • Tap into the innovation and creativity of third-party developers enabling them to develop value-add services that help retain high-value subscribers
  • Ease Web 2.0 integration with core network capabilities through RESTful Web APIs including variants that adhere to emerging Parlay REST and GSMA OneAPI standard
  • Offer new revenue generating services and implement new business models to more effectively compete against emerging communications alternatives
  • Protect underlying network resources from unauthorized access and overload with security-rich, policy-based access and effective Service Level Agreement (SLA) enforcement capabilities

WebSphere Telecom Web Services Server can enable CSPs to provide third-party application developers a single, common entry point for web services access to network services. It also provides CSPs a control point for network access authorization and enforcement of service level agreements (SLAs), enabling them to offer differentiated services while protecting their network assets.

WebSphere Telecom Web Services Server provides a broad portfolio of telecom web services leveraging a range of network connectivity options. WebSphere Telecom Web Services Server V7.2 expands its existing portfolio of telecom web service implementations with additional Parlay X 2.1-based web services and RESTful Web APIs. These new services complement existing presence, call control, payment, terminal location, and SMS messaging related services, and support a variety of network connection options for current and next-generation IMS and SIP networks.

Extending telecom network service capabilities to third parties can expand service innovation by enabling service providers to take advantage of a broad third-party developer community, while at the same time extending the value of both existing and new next generation telecom network investments. WebSphere Telecom Web Services Server can enable service providers to deliver third parties controlled, reliable access to telecom network capabilities. Third-party application developers can enhance consumer and enterprise applications by using valuable service provider network services such as location, messaging, and presence through standards-based Parlay X Web services and RESTful Web APIs.

To help ensure service quality as the number of third-party applications grow, WebSphere Telecom Web Services Server provides a common control point for CSPs to define, manage, and enforce policies and SLAs for third-party services and subscribers. The CSP controls which applications and which users have access to which network services and under what conditions.

WebSphere Telecom Web Services Server is comprised of three major components:

  • Front-end Telecom Web Services Access Gateway
  • Service Policy Manager
  • Back-end service implementations

Telecom Web Services Access Gateway provides a unified Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) based web services gateway as well as a RESTful web API gateway. Additionally, it offers features such as policy-driven service authorization, SLA management, and traffic management capabilities. These are enforced for each web service request based on the requestor, target service, and invoked operation.

The access gateway is built upon WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus (ESB), which provides the flexibility to tailor web service messages processing in accordance with the telecom service provider network policies. The access gateway delivers pluggable ESB components, each designed to serve a specific purpose, including:

  • Policy retrieval - Retrieves subscriber and service policy data for downstream ESB components and back-end service implementations to make policy-based decisions during service execution.
  • Service authorization - Authorizes requests based on policy information retrieved by examining the requestor, operation, and service requested.
  • SLA enforcement - Measures system use by requestor and service to enforce policy-driven service level agreements and manage admission control.
  • Group resolution - Enables web services that accept group universal resource identifiers (URIs) within a list of targets for a given operation and helps ensure the number of targets is accounted for in SLA enforcement and traffic management.
  • Network statistics - Records web service message statistics in a database that can be used by network operations to construct service traffic reports for network analysis and capacity planning.

Service Policy Manager provides an extendable repository for service and requestor policies enabling highly scalable granular policy enforcement at the requestor, service, or operation level. The hierarchical service policy structure allows CSPs simplified policy administration of services and requestors by groups or sub-groups while also enabling granular policy administration at the individual service, operation, or request level.

Web service implementations component in WebSphere Telecom Web Services Server delivers web service interfaces compliant with Parlay X 2.1 Web services standards for accessing CSP network functions. The WebSphere Telecom Web Services Server V7.2 portfolio of Parlay X Web Services includes implementations connecting directly to telecom network elements.

WebSphere Telecom Web Services Server Parlay X web services also use a set of common functions built into the service implementations to deliver service providers additional network protection and operational support. These common functions include platform admission control, traffic shaping to downstream network elements, Parlay X notification delivery, faults and alarms, service usage records, and privacy enforcement.

Finally, you get a Telecom Web Services Toolkit to assist developers in easily creating value-add telecom services using the open standard Parlay X web services to access telecom networks. Building on the capabilities of the Rational® Application Developer, the Telecom Web Services Toolkit helps simplify the building of applications by adding web services snippets, sample applications, and simulators into the IBM Rational Application Developer integrated development environment. It puts telephony functions into the hands of IT professionals and helps lower development costs and speed time to market for new services.

WebSphere XML Document Management Server V7.2

WebSphere XDMS offers an application-independent and service-independent way to manage XML documents of any type, including group lists, user profiles, contact information, authorization rules, and policy data. It is built on the highly reliable, highly available WebSphere platform and it complies with support for telecommunications standards and next-generation frameworks.

WebSphere XDMS is application and service independent. Unlike offerings that only use group list or profile information within siloed applications, WebSphere XDMS helps service providers integrate XML-based information across applications and services. It supports the integration of XML-based information to and from any standards-based client, application, or external provider, such as address books, call routing servers, and instant messaging clients.

WebSphere XDMS complies with Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), Open Mobile Alliance (OMA), European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI), and 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) standards. As a result, it can help companies achieve widespread integration between multivendor applications, devices, and network infrastructure.

Service providers can use WebSphere XDMS to share XML documents across virtually any standards-based application. For example, group information from one instant messaging application vendor can be displayed and manipulated in another contact book application vendor. This degree of flexibility helps support efforts to simplify and improve the customer experience for end users. Service providers can facilitate integration of new applications and services without recreating common information.

WebSphere XDMS can store and manage any XML document. Examples of XML documents commonly used for services are:

  • Group lists
  • User profiles
  • Contact information
  • Authorization rules
  • Policy data

Service providers and vendors can expand the capabilities by adding additional document types. For example, a service provider could enable its applications to utilize common network address book documents. WebSphere XDMS also includes prebuilt document enablers based on OMA standards, including Shared List, Resource List, Presence Rules, Shared List Group Usage List, Shared Policy, Shared Group, and Shared Profile, as well as an Aggregation Proxy.

WebSphere XDMS implements standards-based XCAP (HTTP) for document creation, management, and retrieval. WebSphere XDMS utilizes SIP for subscriptions and notifications about document changes.

WebSphere XDMS can also be extended to support web service interfaces through an external enabler. WebSphere Telecom Web Services Server can interoperate with WebSphere XDMS to provide Parlay X 2.1 web services for Address List Management. WebSphere Telecom Web Services Server enables you to provide third-party application developers with web services access to network services via a single, common entry point.

To facilitate efficient management and help protect the private data that can be part of the XML documents you manage, WebSphere XDMS provides detailed privacy controls. Advanced tiered authorization can be specified at domain, directory, or document levels. WebSphere XDMS also allows for detailed customization on the type of access allowed for individual users or administrators. For example, a user may have the right to fully administer one document but only view another. The authorization policy documents are created and managed through the standard XCAP interface for easy programmatic management of the access control lists.

WebSphere IP Multimedia Subsystem Connector V7.2

WebSphere IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) Connector extends the industry-leading WebSphere Application Server platform to deliver a fully IMS standards-compliant SIP application server. It is built on the converged SIP-HTTP Servlet container of WebSphere Application Server V7.0. With support for IMS-ready HTTP and SIP applications in a single environment, the WebSphere IMS Connector enables truly converged IMS applications to be built and deployed on a single service execution platform, helping customers and business partners reduce the complexity and cost of their IMS solutions.

WebSphere IMS Connector supports key IMS-compliant interface elements based on SIP and Diameter protocols, as defined by the 3GPP and IETF to the WebSphere Application Server platform:

  • IMS Session Control (ISC) reference point enabling standards-based SIP connectivity to Call/Session Control Functions (CSCF) in the IMS control plane
  • Diameter stack and interfaces supporting subscriber management and charging functions in accordance with IMS standards; complying with standards for IMS reference points Sh, Ro, and Rf

Building on converged J2EE and SIP application server

Charge metrics definitions

Processor Value Unit (PVU)

PVU is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. The number of PVU entitlements required is based on the processor technology (defined within the PVU Table by processor value, brand, type, and model number at

http://www.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/pvu_licensing_for_customers.html

and the number of processors made available to the program. IBM continues to define a processor, for the purpose of PVU-based licensing, to be each processor core on a chip. A dual-core processor chip, for example, has two processor cores.

Licensee can deploy the program using either full capacity licensing or virtualization capacity (sub-capacity) licensing according to the Passport Advantage Sub-Capacity Licensing Terms (refer to the webpage below). If using full capacity licensing, licensee must obtain PVU entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores* in the physical hardware environment made available to or managed by the program, except for those servers from which the program has been permanently removed. If using virtualization capacity licensing, licensee must obtain entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores made available to or managed by the program, as defined according to the Virtualization Capacity License Counting Rules at

http://www.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/Counting_Software_licenses_using_specific_virtualization_technologies.html

* An activated processor core is a processor core that is available for use in a physical or virtual server, regardless of whether the capacity of the processor core can be or is limited through virtualization technologies, operating system commands, BIOS settings, or similar restrictions.

Notes:

  • Some programs may require licenses for the program and what is being managed. In that case, the following applies. In addition to the entitlements required for the program directly, licensee must obtain PVU entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the processor cores managed by the program.
  • Some programs may be licensed on a managed basis only. In that case, the following applies: Instead of the entitlements required for the program directly, Licensee must obtain PVU entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the processor cores managed by the program.
  • A few programs on an exception basis may be licensed on a referenced basis. In that case, the following applies. Rather than obtaining entitlements for the activated processor cores available to the program, licensee must obtain PVU entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the environment made available to the referenced program as if the program itself were executing everywhere the referenced program was executing, independent of the basis on which the referenced program is licensed.
  • Express and workgroup programs may be licensed with maximum use terms. In that case, the following applies. The maximum authorized use terms and conditions for PVU licensed IBM express and middleware programs can be found in the IBM Express and Middleware Licensing Guide.

The information provided in this announcement letter is for reference and convenience purposes only. The terms and conditions that govern any transaction with IBM are contained in the applicable contract documents such as the IBM International Program License Agreement, IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement, and the IBM Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance.

Licensing

IBM International Program License Agreement including the License Information document and Proof of Entitlement (PoE) govern your use of the program. PoEs are required for all authorized use.

Part number products only, offered outside of Passport Advantage, where applicable, are license only and do not include Software Maintenance.

This software license includes Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance).

The program's License Information will be available for review on the IBM Software License Agreement website

http://www.ibm.com/software/sla/sladb.nsf
Limited warranty applies

Yes

Limited warranty

IBM warrants that when the program is used in the specified operating environment, it will conform to its specifications. The warranty applies only to the unmodified portion of the program. IBM does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free operation of the program or that IBM will correct all program defects. You are responsible for the results obtained from the use of the program.

IBM provides you with access to IBM databases containing information on known program defects, defect corrections, restrictions, and bypasses at no additional charge. For further information, consult the IBM Software Support Handbook found at

http://www.ibm.com/support/handbook

IBM will maintain this information for at least one year after the original licensee acquires the program (warranty period).

Program technical support

Technical support of a program product version or release will be available for a minimum of five years from the general availability date, as long as your Software Maintenance is in effect. This technical support allows you to obtain assistance (via telephone or electronic means) from IBM for product-specific, task-oriented questions regarding the installation and operation of the program product. Software Maintenance also provides you with access to updates (modifications or fixes), releases, and versions of the program. You will be notified, via announcement letter, of discontinuance of support with 12 months' notice. If you require additional technical support from IBM, including an extension of support beyond the discontinuance date, contact your IBM representative or IBM Business Partner. This extension may be available for a fee.

Money-back guarantee

For clarification, note that if for any reason you are dissatisfied with the program and you are the original licensee, you may obtain a refund of the amount you paid for it, if within 30 days of your invoice date you return the program and its PoE to the party from whom you obtained it. If you downloaded the program, you may contact the party from whom you acquired it for instructions on how to obtain the refund.

  • For clarification, note that for programs acquired under the IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement, this term applies only to your first acquisition of the program.
  • For clarification, note that for programs acquired under any of IBM's On/Off CoD software offerings, this term does not apply since these offerings apply to programs already acquired and in use by you.
