Ericsson Cites Deployments of its IMS Solution

At 3GSM World Congress in Cannes, Ericsson announced contracts to supply its IP Multimedia System (IMS) to Telecom Italia Mobile (TIM). TeliaSonera has also agreed to trial Ericsson's solution for IMS, IP Multimedia Subsystem. Ericsson is one of three vendors selected by TeliaSonera to trial IMS.

IMS is a key enabler for fixed-mobile convergence and provides a migration path to an all-IP network. The implementation of the IMS based services will also enable mobile users to share videos, images, and collaborate on whiteboards while having an ongoing phone conversation. The new services will be available on a number of different terminals from a variety of suppliers.

Ericsson said it has signed 25 IMS contracts for commercial launch or trial, all based on the 3GPP standard. The contracts are distributed over the Americas, Europe, Asia and Africa, and include GPRS/EDGE, WCDMA, CDMA2000, fixed implementations and includes a mix of applications
such as IP Telephony, IP Centrex, Push to talk over Cellular and Combinational Services (weShare).
