Due to the rapid development of the web and network technologies, more and more telecommunication services are shifted from the telecommunication area into the Internet world. Therefore, IMS-formats are gaining increasing importance, especially from the perspective of the operators.
"Developing marketable, competitive digital services and to establish them in the market is the goal of many world leaders in this sector. But the advantage of numerous functionalities often goes hand in hand with enormous complexity. Thereby especially the standardization compliance interoperability solutions have to be assured" says Prof. Dr. Thomas Magedanz, Head of Competence Center Next Generation Network Infrastructures (NGNI) at the Fraunhofer Institute FOKUS. “The functional upgrading of NGN solutions in the IMS direction brings advantage in convergent networks. A joint endeavour with Fraunhofer FOKUS confirms our commitment to the standards, and helps us formulate development policy for the future“, added Aleš Balanč, Head of the Multimedia Core product line at Iskratel.
