VoIP Remains Critical IMS Application: Report
By Calvin Azuri, TMCnet Contributor
Blueslice is leading the growth of the IMS and IP Multimedia Subsystems worldwide deployments.
According to an analysis done by Infonetics Research (News - Alert) on the IMS Equipment and Subscriber market, the IMS core equipment has gone up by 94 percent from 2007 to 2008 and globally, HSS revenue has increased by 72 percent to $121.8 million for 2008.
Across the globe, 2G and 3G operators are transitioning from lab trials to live installations and the market has seen a multitude of players in WiMAX (News - Alert) and LTE who need an IMS framework for operating efficiently and deliver value to end users. Both these factors have contributed positively to the IMS and IPMS growth evolution. Among these, VoIP remains the single most important application deployed over IMS.
Home Subscriber Servers are now emerging as the latest siloed subscriber database fuelled in part by the increasing popularity of IMS as an effective and cutting-edge framework. Blueslice (News - Alert) consistently tries to prevent proliferation of more customer silos while implementing any new access and service technology. It also offers the unique converged subscriber management solution. The hardware blades and back-end subscriber base are shared between all front-end applications like HSS, HLR, AAA, SLF, MNP and SIP-AS and they can also mutually exchange information about subscriber registration contexts instantly in a virtualized environment.

Blueslice’s pioneering HSS solution is the most advanced in its genre and is technologically much ahead of its industry peers.
