Chicago, IL, SUPERCOMM 2005, - 07 Jun 2005: IBM today demonstrated another example of an IP Multimedia Subsystem at SUPERCOMM 2005 underscoring its commitment to continued investment in its IMS strategy and leveraging its business partner ecosystem.

The IMS solutions are developed in conjunction with business partners in the IBM PartnerWorld Telecommunications Industry Network, enabling telecommunications service providers to rapidly create, deploy and scale new revenue-generating services while reducing capital and operating expenses.  More than 800 software providers and consultants are working with IBM to deliver solutions for next-generation telecommunications. 

"Convergence in the telecommunications industry is making multimedia services available today regardless of network, device, and location, and there is mounting competition for customers," said Vanitha Narayanan, Director, IBM Telecommunications Solutions and Partner Management. "Differentiation is key to survival and winning. IBM's technology and services expertise along with our growing network of business partners, allows us to jointly deliver end-to-end IMS solutions to our clients, enabling them to maintain competitive advantage, increase revenue and reduce costs."

Helping to drive the evolution from existing networks to a converged network, IBM IMS solutions integrate pre-existing and evolving components in an open computing standards environment. IBM's IMS solutions enable network operators to deliver an enhanced user experience while gaining an added-value network and a service roadmap that can be easily controlled. More specifically, these solutions can help service providers:
