Alice Cheambe (née Motanga) is a senior researcher at the competence center NGNI (Next Generation Network Infrastructures)and project coordinator for myMONSTER – Telco Communicator Suite (TCS).
The myMONSTER TCS project is a client framework that enables developers to easily create rich featured communication applications for advanced mobile and fixed networks. The framework includes reference implementation of 3GPP IP Multimedia Subsystems (IMS), ETSI TISPAN and Open Mobile Alliance (OMA) service enablers such as Presence, XML Document Management (XDM) and SIMPLE IM based instant messaging. In the last two years, driven by market needs, our partner's requirements, student projects, the myMONSTER TCS framework has evolved to a known proof-of-concept tool which is used in many national and international projects from industry and academia.
The Open IMS Client was developed as a reference implementation as the User Equipment on the Open Source IMS Core project (OpenIMSCore.org). The Open Source IMS Core is an implementation of IMS Call Session Control Functions (CSCFs) and a lightweight Home Subscriber Server (HSS), which together form the core elements of all IMS/NGN architectures as specified today within 3GPP, 3GPP2, ETSI TISPAN and the PacketCable initiative. For almost three years the Open IMS Core has formed the heart of the Open IMS Playground @ FOKUS.
The OpenIC project unfortunately has reached its End-Of-Life and is no longer distributed. However, the same services and even more possibilities can be found on the myMONSTER TCS framework
