As I sometimes say, being CTO of IONA is great because I get to be involved in a lot of different things. Take the Aepona User Forum for example.
During my career I’ve ended up working in various telecom related efforts and spent a good bit of time at TM Forum meetings, and not only for IONA. I had this particular affliction before I joined 😉
Those of you outside of the telecom industry may not hear much about SDP (aka SOA based on Web services applied to telco industry requirements), but if you are in the telecom industry (or selling to it) you are probably hearing a lot about it.
This is what Aepona is chiefly involved in at the moment (aka Web services for telecom) and I am proud to both say that they are using IONA’s Artix in their product and that I will be giving an update on Web services at their upcoming Forum.
