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

Alcatel-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.

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.
