An Exploration of Web Services and Virtualization Mechanization Fostered In Communication as a Service
Tatenda T. Gotora, Kudakwashe Zvarevashe
Basic principle of economics, reiterates the increase in demand of a product with low supply increases price. Likewise the growing demand of mobile clients is not being met by the communications industry, hence Operational Expenses (OPEX) is high. Web 2.0 brought about significant flexibility in the web services interoperability and standardized communication protocols. The open source nature of most of the web service APIs used over the Web has made it easier to build simple to sophisticated Mobile applications for Business-to-Business (B2B), Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and an integration of the both. More so virtualization has not only spearheaded cloud computing paradigms but also facilitated novel virtual technologies especially in Communication. This paper seeks to explore various Web Services (WSs) and Virtualization Technologies used to achieve Communication as a Service (CaaS). Also a proposed hybrid solution to be adopted in the Cloud has been described briefly.
