In this interview, Eric Troup talks with Abdi Modaressi, Distinguished Member of Technical Staff at AT&T, about the challenges behind combining web services and IMS to deliver new types of experiences for the device, computer, and TV experiences.  Abdi talks about the challenges behind providing quality of service (QoS) for web services that is comparable with the QoS levels of IMS.  Eric discusses how work in the TeleManagement Forum has illustrated these capabilities, and how blending web services and IMS together provides a new level of capabilities needed to provide the next generation of user experiences from service providers.
