A Framework for Next Generation Mobile and Wireless Networks Application Development Using Hybrid Component Based Development Model
The IP Multimedia Subsystems (IMS) that features in Next Generation Networks (NGN) offers the application developer (third party) abilities to map out applications over mobile telecommunication infrastructure. The IMS comes about with APIs useful for mobile application developers to create applications to meet end-users' demands and comply with the provider's infrastructure set up at the same time. Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) is a signaling protocol for this architecture. It is used for establishing sessions in IP network, making it an ideal candidate for supporting terminal mobility in to deliver the services with improved Quality of Services (QOS). The realization of IMS's virtues as far as software design is concerned is faced by lack of standardizations and methodologies throughout application development process.
