Telecoms systems provider, Comverse, has launched a new future proof end-to-end IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) solution, that allows for fast network roll-out and interoperability.
The Comverse IMS solution is designed to accelerate the rollout of rich communication services, including converged messaging, address book management, residential and business voice, presence, visual voicemail, video, and prepaid/postpaid billing services.
It brings together the Comverse Netcentrex IMS core infrastructure, pre-integrated telephony servers, and telephony and data application enablers.
Operators using Comverse IMS equipment benefit from standardised interfaces for presences, converged messaging, and a network address book for all communication devices – PC, laptop, and mobile phone.
Joe McGarvey, principal analyst at Current Analysis, said: “With the launch of these IMS core products, Comverse has shown that it is a provider of strategically targeted end-to-end, carrier-grade IP solutions delivering a fully integrated communications services package.
“The combination of a Telephony Application Server, a rich set of converged messaging and value-added services, and the necessary components to support convergent provisioning and billing to meet the needs of tier-1 carriers positions the company among the major players in the IMS space.”
Comverse currently has four IMS networks in various stages of deployment around the world for both business and residential subscribers.
John Bunyan, Chief Marketing Officer of Comverse, said: “Our IMS solution enables operators to quickly roll out services from the innovative Comverse HUB of value-added services portfolio, such as SMS, MMS and Visual Voicemail, and allows subscribers to enjoy a converged and consistent user experience from fixed phones, mobile handsets, Voice Over IP phones, and PCs.”
