The IMS Debate

by Bruce Stewart

111-IMS_Debate.gifIn our latest ETel article, The IMS Debate, Lee Dryburgh explores some of the concerns surrounding the IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) which will be used in next-generation operator networks and which lies at the core of their future strategies, and sets the stage for a live debate on the topic he will lead at next month's Emerging Telephony conference. Whether you're a believer or a skeptic about IMS, you should read this article. Lee has been a consulting engineer for a number of telcos and equipment vendors and is the author of the best-selling book on SS7, so while his opinions on the topic may be controversial, they are also well-informed. Lets get the conversation started now in the comments section of The IMS Debate. (Note: I've turned off comments on this posting to encourage readers to leave their comments after the actual article instead.)
