Nokia and Telenor R&D Test Fixed Mobile Convergence

Telenor R&D and Nokia are trialing services for fixed and mobile environments using Fixed-Mobile Convergence technologies. The results of the joint research and development collaboration include the ability to deliver IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) services over Nokia's D500 DSLAM multiservice broadband platform; VoIP calls between mobile and fixed SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) clients; and establishing test capabilities for gaming and video sharing on a converged platform.

The Fixed-Mobile Convergence architecture is based on SIP technology and the Nokia IMS solution. The joint project began in 2005.

"The shift towards IP convergence over the next few years is clear to Telenor. Introducing an IMS-based architecture is central to this development," says Hans-Christian Haugli, CEO Telenor R&D.
