Shenzhen, China-ZTE Corporation, a leading global provider of telecommunications equipment and network solutions, launched its new-generation IMS-based solution (ZIMS), today at the Global NGN Summit 2007 held in Beijing, China.
ZIMS is a complete end-to-end solution supporting multi-network convergence with an open structure. Its development has been based on analysis of network development trends and service transformation requirements under new industrial environment faced by operators.
"Today is the era of broadband and VoIP communications. Internet giants like Skype and GoogleTalk are changing the telecoms ecosystem by providing virtually free voice," said Mr. Ye Zheng, Manager of ZTE's IMS product line. "Transforming into an integrated information service provider and building all-IP based convergence network has now become a strategic necessity for global operators. ZIMS enables the convergence of both fixed and mobile networks, and CT and IT networks, ensuring operators and service providers can continue to offer differentiated services."
ZIMS covers all the functional modules defined by 3GPP (Third Generation Partnership Project), 3GPP2 and TISPAN (The Telecoms & Internet converged Services & Protocols for Advanced Networks). It provides the network equipment for the access layer, the bearer layer, the control layer, the service layer and the user data layer, and supports multiple access types, such as UMTS, TD-SCDMA, CDMA2000, WLAN, WiMAX, Cable, xDSL and the traditional 2G. ZIMS also provides customised ICT convergence solutions for operators based on its open architecture, fully meeting current telecom convergence demands. ZIMS enables multiple FMC services, such as voice call continuity (VCC), and dynamic address book. ZIMS also enables its unique application, soft digital assistant (SoftDA), a converged application which includes instant message, presence, group list management and voice/video/combined conference amongst others.,
As one of the pioneers in the NGN (next generation networks) field, ZTE introduced its NGN standard and technology R & D in 1998. As an active member of more than 50 international standardisation organisations, ZTE actively participates in IMS standard establishment work in 3GPP, 3GPP2, TISPAN, ITU-T, and OMA. Domestically, ZTE also participates in the IMS standardisation programme for the China Communications Standards Association (CCSA).
