Nortel Networks Inc. today unveiled a strategy it said leverages SOA (Service-Oriented Architecture) and Web services for the delivery of communication-enabled applications and business processes.

Through the use of SOA, customers can integrate advanced communications services into business applications, increasing productivity while reducing capital and operating expenditures, Nortel said.

Nortel’s Communications Enablement strategy is based on four core components: Enabling Web services on selective products, development of a software-based foundation environment to simplify the creation of customized communications-enabled applications and business processes, alliances with industry leaders such as IBM Corp., and the development of a global services practice to support these SOA-based applications.

“Businesses today are faced with too much complexity as they work to provide real time access to information and people across a growing number of devices and applications,” said Joel Hackney, president, enterprise solutions at Nortel.
