Com hem launches first commercial IMS in Sweden
Com Hem is the first Swedish telecom operator to deploy a IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) platform for commercial use. With IMS, Com Hem now has the ability to rapidly introduce new functions and subscriber services, as well as enter into new cooperation with other telecom operators.
IP Multimedia Subsystem is a new network architecture that enables new telephone services and richer communications applications based on the Internet Protocol (IP) and Session Initiation Protocol (SIP). Com Hem’s IMS solution, including the IMS Core and SURPASS hiQ 8000 voice platform, has been provided and integrated by Nokia Siemens Networks.
Using IMS, Com hem can optimize operations of its existing infrastructure to meet its rapid subscriber growth, while reducing operations expenses. IMS also allows Com Hem to develop and quickly introduce new telephony services and applications.
Com Hem is using IMS initially to provide Voice over IP (VoIP) service, which can also be connected to additional networks thanks to the expanded cooperation with other operators made possible by IMS.
“IMS is a key technology to further develop VoIP-services and next generation IP-telephony. Becoming the first operator in Sweden to use IMS in a full commercial deployment is strategically important since it further expands our competitive position and allows us to offer the best telephony service,” says Martin Kull CTO at Com Hem.
“This project demonstrates our strong cooperation with Com Hem and signals our mutual leadership as innovators in network technology and services. It also provides clear proof of the commercial maturity and importance of IMS as a strategic choice for operators offering richer communications services,” says Jan Lindgren Head of Nokia Siemens Networks in Sweden.
