System Engineering for IMS Networksby Arun Handa
Synopses & Reviews
The IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) is the foundation architecture for the next generation of mobile phones, wireless-enabled PDAs, PCs, and so on, delivering multimedia content (audio, video, text, etc.) over all types of networks. It is essential for network engineers/administrators and telecommunications engineers to not only understand IMS architecture but to also be able to apply it at every stage of the network design process. This book will contain pragmatic information on how to engineer IMS networks as well as an applications oriented approach, for engineering and networking professionals who are responsible for making IMS play in the real world.
* Describes the convergence of wireless IMS (IP Multimedia Subsystem) with other networks, including wireline and cable
* Discusses building interfaces for end users and IMS applications servers
* Explores network management issues with IMS
IMS (IP Multimedia Subsystem) is a network architecture that delivers multimedia services, including internet content to mobile devices. Taking the best principles of wireless and IP networks, IMS offers a single platform that can interface with the many that currently exist across various networks. As converged networks become a reality and mobile users demand more rich media services, this backbone is essential to creating highly-reliable cost-effective networks. The goal of this book is to present the reader with the fundamentals of IMS in order to engineer a product incorporating the IMS architecture and make that a reality.
Table of Contents
Introduction to IMS — Basics of wireless networks — Basics of IP networks — The IMS-related protocols — Principles of operation — Putting it all together — Services delivered by IMS — The promise of convergence — Implementing IMS functional elements — Epilogue: future directions for IMS.
