Palo Alto, CA, United States, 2006/12/12 - The Test & Measurement group at Frost & Sullivan hosted an analyst briefing teleconference on Thursday, December 7, 2006 at 11 am. EST.
IMS technology is making an incredible impact on the telecommunications market and is set to accelerate the move towards convergence to a large extent.
IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) is a general-purpose open industry standard for voice and multimedia communications over packet-based IP networks. It is a core network technology that serves as the low-level foundation for technologies such as Voice over IP (VoIP), Push-To-Talk (PTT), Push-To-View, Video Calling and Video Sharing.
IMS has been the “hot” topic in the telecommunications industry. The idea behind IMS is to move all voice and multimedia communication both mobile and fixed to much more flexible and packet-based technologies resulting from Internet protocols.
Quality of voice and quality of experience has become critical in the industry today. This is why the IMS market holds an enormous potential for communications test equipment vendors. This is a rapidly growing market and there is a multitude of IMS applications that require test and measurement tools.

The demand for IMS test and monitoring equipment is expected to increase as the number of IMS deployments increases.”
