One of the challenges operators have in introducing the IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) is the cost and risk of introducing something new into an existing network that already includes a vast array of revenue-generating services. Operators cannot afford the time or cost needed to re-platform their entire service portfolio when they introduce IMS, and certainly their IMS subscribers will not accept a reduction in the number and quality of services.

The IM-SSF application addresses this migration problem by allowing access to the existing CAMEL service environment from the IMS — so that IMS users can use services implemented on the IN.

Network Operator Benefits:

  • IM-SSF helps reduce the cost and time-to-market for IMS roll-out.
  • It enables customers to adopt IMS without reducing service choice, and provides a broader array of service for new subscribers, and provides the basis for retaining existing subscribers, attracting new subscribers, and defending ARPU.
  • Stimulating migration to IMS enables more subscribers to take up new IMS based services – thus providing an opportunity for ARPU growth.
