Nokia's IMS Used for Video Sharing in Portugal

TMN, a Portuguese mobile operator, is using the Nokia IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) for a new commercial video sharing service that uses the Nokia 6680 3G imaging smartphone. Video sharing is a multimedia service that allows 3G mobile terminal users to share a live camera view while speaking on the mobile.

"This is an important milestone and we are very pleased to be providing TMN the means to offer their customers this innovative service that will enrich their everyday communication," said Markku Verkama, General Manager, Networks, Nokia. "IP multimedia is becoming mainstream and Nokia is strongly driving the openness of IP-based concepts such as video sharing with the target to enable operators to offer a diversity of services independent of the network or handset."

Nokia noted that it now has 26 IMS projects ongoing with mobile and fixed operators globally.
