ARMONK, N.Y. -- IBM (NYSE: IBM) today announced new and enhanced products to help telecommunications carriers, equipment providers and application developers take advantage of service oriented architecture (SOA) and Web 2.0 technologies to help them more rapidly and affordably create, deploy and manage voice, video and data services.

Building on its SOA leadership and telecommunications industry expertise, IBM is enhancing its existing software portfolio to help service providers enable flexible, standards-compliant service platforms that support the delivery of IP-based services. Service providers are also taking advantage of IBM's SOA approach to transform previously siloed network infrastructure investments into reusable services that can easily interoperate using industry standards. This helps provide the business and IT leaders within an organization with the ability to quickly adapt to changing market demands and customer needs.

IBM is helping telecommunications companies like AT&T explore innovative and highly personalized services through a wide range of telecommunications industry-specific products based on SOA and Web 2.0 technologies. AT&T is using IBM WebSphere Application Server and BladeCenter systems as a Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) service logic execution environment platform to develop mission-critical services for deployment on AT&T's IP-based network.

"IBM is enabling service providers to create, combine and deploy new telecommunications services based on emerging technologies," said Tim Greisinger, vice president, communications sector solutions, IBM Software Group. "With IBM's Web 2.0, SOA and IP technology leadership service providers may also have the capability to deliver innovative services with greater speed and quality in a much more open and flexible environment."
