Special Issue on IP Communication Services

The success of Internet telephony applications has demonstrated the feasibility of IP communications to support millions of concurrent users. What started initially as a technology for toll-bypass in the switched telephone network has now grown to subsume the switched telephone network. However, creating scalable innovative services for Internet telephony in a rapid manner is still a work in progress.

The web service creation model served as an initial model of creating services in Internet telephony and still continues in the same role. As web mashups proliferated, voice mashups gained currency; as RSS feeds lead to innovative web services, the voice market capitalized with voice-enabled RSS feeds. Added to this mix are more recent technological advances such as virtualization, virtual worlds, IMS and mobile technologies, and capable personal digital assistants -- all enabling a variety of new communication protocols, services and architectures.

The Special Issue on IP Communication Services welcomes original submissions from both researchers and practitioners that explore recent advances in architecture, system, protocol, modeling, and testbed design, as well as emerging applications and standards related to IP Communication Services.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Contribution of web service model to Internet telephony services

Service modeling and model checking

User expectations in web services versus Internet telephony services

New communication services and service models

Compositional services

Cloud-based IP communications infrastructure
