I think SP is for service providers.

you can find out features deails from

http://www.cisco.com/go/fn

then select compare images, and compare a image with sp features to an image with IP feature

Hi

I think thts the new way being followed in naming the package and do find the different packages aval at present with the features it brings in..

IP Base: entry level package

IP Voice: adds IP Telephony, VoIP, VoFR to IP Base

SP Services: adds NetFlow, SSH, ATM, VoATM, MPLS to IP Voice

Advanced Security: adds Cisco IOS FW, IDS, SSH, IPsec VPN, 3DES to IP Base

Enterprise Base: adds multi-protocols and IBM support to IP Base

Enterprise Services: adds full IBM support, Service Provider Services to Enterprise Base

Advanced IP Services: adds IPv6, Advanced Security to SP Services

Advanced Enterprise Services: full Cisco IOS Software

for more info i would suggest to check this link out..
