The article discusses the federation of service providers in the telecommunication industry in the U.S. A federation allows a carrier's subscribers to authenticate to that carrier and gain single sign-on access to services. It would also permit providers to share one another's operational data and trust each other's business and technical processes. Several new federation initiatives fall under the broad architectural umbrella of Internet Protocol Multimedia Subsystem (IMS). The IPsphere Forum is a telecom industry initiative filling an important gap in the IMS framework. Meanwhile, the Internet Engineering Task Force's Session Peering for Multimedia Interconnect Working Group is developing standards under which Voice over Internet Protocols service providers to federate among themselves.
