Ericsson and Sony Ericsson Partner on Home IMS Gateway

At the Broadband World Forum in Berlin, Ericsson and Sony Ericsson are demonstrating in-home technologies that leverage IMS and DLNA standards to enable multimedia experiences between mobile handsets and home network devices. The companies are developing, and prototyping an interworking gateway based on the Home IMS Gateway concept.

Specifically, the companies are demonstrating IPTV, remote media access and place-shift TV services. In the demonstration a Sony prototype TV connects into Ericsson's IMS-based service backend and IPTV Core via a home server (SIP-to-DLNA interworking) and the Home IMS Gateway. Mobile media access and remote place-shift control will be demonstrated on a Sony Ericsson P1 mobile phone.
