China Mobile Selects Alcatel-Lucent's IMS

China Mobile will deploy Alcatel-Lucent's IMS Solution in Shanxi, Shandong and Gansu provinces to support the delivery of enhanced communication services to consumers and businesses. The contract was secured through Alcatel-Lucent Shanghai Bell. Financial terms were not disclosed.

As part of its IMS framework, China Mobile will deploy Alcatel-Lucent's IP Access Border Solution, which provides security at the network's edge to enable network-independent access to offerings such as triple play services, as well as independent scaling of media and signaling elements to flexibly support today's multimedia traffic mix.

Alcatel-Lucent said the IMS network, when it is completed, will help China Mobile to deliver services such as in-call sharing of images and video, presence-enhanced contact management and unified messaging across mobile and fixed devices.
