MSF endorses IMS Services Industry Brainstorm

We're delighted to announce the MultiServiceForum as an endorsing partner of the IMS Services brainstorm on 4-5 Oct.

Roger Ward, their President, will be giving a stimulus presentation on 'Interoperability and 3rd Party integration' where, among other things, he'll be updating us on GMI 2006, the world’s first massive ‘real network’ trial of multi-vendor interoperability of the IMS service framework. (See very important press release here.)

MSF members get special discounted prices for the event.

Here's some more background on the MSF and Roger:
