IMS Forum Completes Plugfest

The IMS Forum completed its first "IMS Plugfest" last week at the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Lab (UNH-IOL) in Durham, N.H. The event was attended by Ditech, Empirix, Ixia, Reef Point Systems, NE Technologies, Starent Networks, Tektronix, Tekelec, Sonus, Valid8, and sponsored by Empirix, Ditech, Sonus, GlobalTouch Telecom, Trendium and VOX.

The event demonstrated voice services, including fixed-mobile services, IP Centrex and PSTN gateways using dual-mode mobile phones and a number of VoIP, WiFi, and user equipment simulators.

The Plugfest identified areas for additional development in multi-vendor 3GPP IMS Release 6 networks, tested multi-domain VoIP calls, as well as integrated SIP Application Servers with multiple IMS cores and the Home Subscriber Server (HSS) serviced by DIAMETER interfaces.

A second IMS Plugfest is being planned for the second quarter of 2007.
