Ericsson and Telenor to test convergent and seamless IMS Services
Ericsson and Telenor R&D are set to run tests on Ericsson's IMS solution for convergent services. This Ericsson IMS solution will offer a seamless customer experience with personalized, context-aware services and applications independent of location, network, platform, media type and device. Several activities are planned for 2006.
The system also includes Ericsson's triple play enabled IP-based broadband system, home gateways and base stations for public WLAN.
Hans-Christian Haugli, CEO Telenor R&D, says: "With these activities we build valuable insight and technical experience based on various network configurations and scenarios, both end-user services and the back-end systems in an IMS perspective. As the distinction between fixed and mobile services will disappear in the future, it is important for us to test convergent services and how this will enhance the experience of our customers. Inviting Ericsson to take part in the tests was natural based on their strong position on IMS solutions".
Magnus Furustam, Director IMS Program, Ericsson, says: "Our IMS system will fuel devices with new exciting content services and new ways to share information. IP is becoming the overall most important step to take for today's operators".
