IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) and Web 2.0 services have been developed on the basis of different service delivery platforms. Here, the authors describe two architectures to provide converged access to IMS and Web services. First architecture shows how network operators are providing interfaces for Web servers such as parlay X on top of IMS application servers which presents a unique and generic service independent functional entity on the IMS network border named Web Session Controller (WSC) to handle interactions both at the signaling level and at the media level to control Web-IMS communications.
