SDP Global Congress
The other hot topic was the presentation of APIs to third parties. This is a conference favourite and there are plenty of solutions on offer. Broadly though, we seemed to agree that Parlay X had some potential, at least more than the original Parlay standards themselves. It was also revealing to hear operators giving solid examples of how they have adopted something that looks like an SDP and have started to bring services to market. Equally interesting were some not-so-successful efforts, one of which floundered in an inability of the SIP-heads to understand the legacy signalling to which they needed to connect to make their platform work!
