The SDP Alliance brings together the most important elements of a Service Delivery Platform (SDP) and offers them either as a unified whole or in a subset of category-defining products.
The adoption of Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) in the SDP simplifies enabler deployment and facilitates other SDP requirements for composition, reuse, delegation, orchestration, policy enforcement and business/operation process adherence and integration.
Key to the adoption of the SDP SOA-based approach, is the fact that it is not tied to a specific technology. It focuses on the composition and orchestration of enablers with defined interfaces that can be called to perform their tasks under standard mechanisms, without the service having pre-knowledge of the calling enabler, and without the application having or needing knowledge of how the called enabler actually performs its tasks.
The diagram below is a logical view of The SDP Alliance end-to-end solution. It identifies the key enablers necessary to support the rapid and efficient rollout, operation and retirement of innovative, revenue generating services. The SDP Alliance has pre-integrated these enablers within a flexible Service Oriented Architecture that can be easily tailored to meet individual Operator requirements.
