RVSN Raketnye Voiska Strategicheskogo Naznacheniya (Russian strategic rocket forces) ), a leading provider of video network infrastructure and developer tools for unified visual communications over IP, 3G, and emerging next-generation IMS networks, announced today a new activity group has been formed by the International Multimedia Telecommunications Consortium (IMTC) dealing with interoperability issues related to the IP Multimedia Subsystem An integrated network for telecommunications carriers that uses the IP protocol as its foundation for packetized voice, video and data. Supporting voice over IP (VoIP) in all its flavors (SIP, H.323, MGCP, etc. (IMS). The activity group currently includes among its members representatives from leading companies in the telecommunications industry, such as Ericsson, Motorola, NMS See NetWare Management System. Communications, Nokia Corporation, Samsung Electronics Samsung Electronics (SEC, Hangul:삼성전자; KSE: 005930, KSE: 005935, LSE: SMSN, LSE: SMSD) is a South Korean multinational corporation and the world's largest and leading electronics and information technology company. , Sharp Corporation and Sony Ericsson For an arrangement of Sony Ericsson products, see list of Sony Ericsson products
Sony Ericsson is a joint venture established in 2001 by the Japanese consumer electronics company Sony Corporation and the Swedish telecommunications company Ericsson to make mobile phones. Mobile Communications. Tsahi Levent-Levi, a Product Manager in RADVISION's Technology Business Unit, was chosen to chair the activity group. IMTC has been involved for over a decade in interoperability testing and has been a driving force in the adoption and deployment of mature H.323 and 3G-324M devices and networks.
The IMTC IMS activity group promotes and facilitates the development and implementation of interoperable multimedia conferencing See videoconferencing and data conferencing. solutions based on open international standards, as well as other standards organizations. The proliferation of open standard solutions will advance the multimedia conferencing industry and further its widespread deployment. In order to do this, the IMTC IMS activity group focuses on interoperability of end-to-end functionality and terminal-network signaling and media. In addition, the IMS activity group finalizes IMS client application specifications, creates test specification and implementation guides, and organizes test events. This includes performing and documenting well-planned and controlled interoperability tests, as well as planning, executing, and tracking rigorous interoperability tests for the benefit of participating member companies. The activity group reports feedback to 3GPP GPP Government Performance Project

The IMTC IMS activity group also allows competing companies to conduct regular dialogue regarding interoperability of their products and to develop a common stance enabling them to help shape and evolve industry-wide standards.
The Evolution to IMS
The IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) is a standardized Next Generation Networking Next Generation Networking (NGN) is a broad term to describe some key architectural evolutions in telecommunication core and access networks that will be deployed over the next 5-10 years. (NGN (Next Generation Networks) An umbrella term for mixed voice and data networks running over the IP protocol. See IP Multimedia Subsystem. ) architecture that meets an important need in the growing trend towards fixed, wireless and mobile network convergence. The IMS core network enables operators and service providers to deliver identical IP services to both fixed and mobile customers over any access. As IMS is the cornerstone of converged telecommunications, it offers unique opportunities for the development of next-generation devices and equipment and converged mobile communications. RADVISION is leading the IMS evolution with the RADVISION IMS Express[TM], a complete IMS Developer Suite. These IMS developer tools and IMS-ready infrastructure products provide all the necessary protocol toolkits, IMS application servers, IMS testing tools, and an IMS client package for terminal developers - complete with application engines in addition to the underlying signaling and media technology.
"RADVISION has always placed interoperability as a top priority, in the belief that this will serve to advance the industry and bring about innovation," said Adi Paz. "The advent of IMS underscores the importance of interoperability across all spheres. Our chairing this Activity Group enhances the quality of our IMS Developer Suite significantly."
