In recent years, multimedia network services have moved from a single service to rich services which integrate multiservice capabilities integration. If all service requests require the user to send the request by himself, this will result to a huge control function load and complex service collaboration. In order to address service interaction and reuse the service capability, 3GPP proposes a Service Capability Interaction Manager, which can provide service capabilities invocation and service interaction management between Application Servers (ASs) and Serving-Call Session Control Function (S-CSCF). However, its architecture may cause joint and cooperation problems between the different service providers. In this paper, we propose a scalable service capability interaction framework called ServiceChord that can process multiple service capabilities with different ASs and reduce the call set-up delay while communicating with the S-CSCF. The Chord DHT technique is used to improve the framework, leading to a reduction of message redundancy on the S-CSCF while achieving an efficient service capability interaction, and providing scalability for IMS services and ASs.
