Is SSDP service required by Windows XP?

Is SSDP service required to run in Windows XP. Is it used by SCCM to advertise software installation? Will it affect the system if we end it?

I have it disabled on this XP computer.  As I recall, it interferes with another function that I needed.

It also watches for new devices to appear on the network when they announce themselves, like routers and media servers/players (though XP isn't all that 'friendly' to media devices when it does see them, even the MCE version). But it's not "required" - you can still access those devices if you 'know' they're there, by going to their IP addresses, or names if they're in the lmhosts file or registered with the WINS server..
