Israel's MiRS Deploys IMS with Tekelec/Convergin

MiRS Communications, an Israeli provider of integrated wireless
services with 333,000 subscribers, selected a core convergence switching solution from Tekelec. The solution enables MiRS' transition to an IMS architecture and enables next-generation capabilities, including fixed mobile convergence (FMC) and hosted SIP services. Tekelec's IMS architecture drives switching for both MiRS' entire mobile device line and SIP-based clients, and it supports the execution of common network applications. Financial terms were not disclosed.

The Tekelec next-generation gateway mobile switching center (GMSC) server solution includes the Tekelec 9000 Distributed Switching Solution (DSS) and the Accolade Core Wireless Convergence Server (WCS) from Convergin, a provider of core wireless convergence servers.

Tekelec will package the Accolade WCS as a product in the Tekelec wireless convergence gateway (WCG) family of products.

MiRS has also purchased the next-generation Tekelec 6000 VoIP Application Server (VAS) to offer advanced, feature-rich mobile, VoIP
and hosted Centrex services. MiRS will use the wireless convergence server with its Tekelec 6000 VAS to develop and deliver enhanced services such as voice virtual private network, black/white lists, private numbering plans (PNP) and call treatment services, intelligent voice-assisted routing, fleet management, and wireless PBX services for its mobile GSM-based iDEN subscribers, its fixed-line IP-based endpoints and voice over WiFi clients.
