  • Mind Commerce Publishing

Overview:
IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) is an emerging framework for development, deployment, and operation of various applications for support of any-network, any-device, and service provider usage. One of the most important legacy applications on traditional circuit networks is messaging. IMS enables messaging to transcend mobile via IP to become a pervasive service across various media, applications, and networks.

This research evaluates the challenges faced in planning, deploying and operating next generation messaging. It includes detailed solutions and architecture over IMS network to provide messaging services with detailed call flows for typical user scenarios. The report provides a SWOT analysis of traditional carrier SMS vs. Web-based messaging and Apple's iMessage service. It also includes key vendor/products analysis.
