This article discusses communication services in industries and an expected collision between networking vendors and information technology vendors. The discussion in this article also focuses on service-oriented architectures and Simple Object Access Protocol, which is a layer that exists between network and IT networking products where a product battle is likely to begin. It is further suggested that the industry of Unified communications such as Microsoft, Cisco, and Nortel, may be the first to begin competition between companies.
