Copeland, a telecom consultant who specializes in Next-Generation Networks (NGN), SIP applications, and IMS, presents an overview of the methods, functions, network elements, and interfaces involved in converging NGN wireline and mobile 3G (Third Generation) networks with IMS. She describes IMS principles, market trends, technological innovations, migration issues, and global standards, followed by discussion of converged session control and multimedia handling with ID management, service profiles, event and applications triggering, and admission procedures for different types of access networks. Also covered are IP charging mechanisms, quality of service control, security, border control, and legacy services. Each chapter begins with a description of the main principles, from the generic technology to the new IMS principles devised to control the specific aspect discussed. Different specifications and terminology for NGN TISPAN and 3GPP are included. The book is aimed at those in telecommunications.
