Briefs: Lucent, IBM ally in IMS development

February 9, 2006

Lucent Technologies and IBM said they will partner to deliver integrated Internet Protocol multimedia subsystems to carriers.

The two companies will work together to develop and market IMS that they hope will accelerate the integration of wireless and fixed-line systems. Specifically, the telecommunications group and the computer giant will be forming a joint system to reduce costs and operating expenses while developing a new revenue source at the same time.

"In this competitive market, carriers are looking to bring next generation services to their customers quickly and at a reduced cost," Sandy Aitken, global IMS solutions owner of IBM's communications sector, said in a news release. "Together IBM and Lucent will provide the capabilities and technology necessary to deliver a complete IMS solution for rapid deployment of composite and blended services."
