Lucent and IBM Team on IMS

Lucent Technologies and IBM announced a partnership to develop, market and deliver joint solutions based on IP Multimedia Subsystems (IMS) that will accelerate the introduction of new blended services for wireless and wireline carriers.

Specifically, the companies work together to develop, test and deliver IMS infrastructure, service creation and network management solutions, including billing and operating systems solutions.

The two companies have developed a reference architecture to support operations and billing solutions that leverage IBM's WebSphere, Rational and Tivoli software, Lucent's VitalSuite products, and/or 3rd party independent software vendors and services from each party.

Lucent and IBM are already creating pre-IMS joint solutions for a number of services providers. Lucent and IBM are currently conducting or have completed Proof of Concept testing with five different service providers and have had joint discussions with several others. These include service providers in Europe, Asia and North America.
