LongBoard and France Telecom Develop IMS Roaming Solution

LongBoard announced a partnership with France Telecom to jointly develop and deliver an IMS-compliant multimedia roaming solution.
The multimedia roaming solution, which is expected to be commercially available in early 2007, enables service providers to deliver seamless multimedia services with high-speed handover and service assurance across multiple access networks including GSM, GPRS, CDMA, UMTS, Wi-Fi, and WiMax.

This jointly developed multimedia roaming solution will be marketed by LongBoard to its customers.

LongBoard said the multimedia roaming solution will deliver network-based policy and enforcement capabilities that ensure quality user experiences for multimedia services. It enables carriers to ensure that mobile users are always connected to the optimal fixed or mobile network available. It will also adapt streaming multimedia services in real-time as users move across networks. For example, it automatically adapts a streaming video to a higher quality stream as mobile users move from a cellular network to a Wi-Fi network. http://www.longboard.com
