Alcatel-Lucent, Ericsson, Fujitsu, NEC, Nokia Siemens Networks and DOCOMO Develop Technical Specifications for Value-Added IMS Network Services

value-added-servicesAlcatel-Lucent, Ericsson, Fujitsu, NEC Corporation (NEC), Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN) and NTT DOCOMO, INC. (DOCOMO) are pleased to announce the joint development and successful testing of common technical specifications for value-added IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) network services.

The technical specifications recently demonstrated by the six companies support deployment of data processing functions, such as image conversion, on the IMS network. The processing functions will also allow companies to develop a variety of application services.

The new specifications will make it easier for telecommunication operators and vendors to develop value-added network functions. Operators that have adopted IMS can add these functions to their existing network and realize new services where, for example, a user edits a picture on the network and shares it, or converts a Japanese text message to English on the network before delivering it to the receiver (see attachment).

Alcatel-Lucent, Ericsson, Fujitsu, NEC, NSN and DOCOMO collaborated to set up a network system based on the new specifications and then successfully completed a demonstration test in August.

The six companies are committed to gaining adoption of the specifications by the Rich Communication Suite (RCS) project, a collaborative effort supervised by the Global System for Mobile Communications Association (GSM Association) that seeks to pave the way for the introduction of commercial IMS-based rich communication services over mobile and, eventually, fixed networks.
