  1. IMS Realities and Opportunities Moderator: George Kontopidis, SVP, Product and Technology Strategy, NMS Panelists: Chad Hart, Senior Consultant, VDC Kirk Mosher, Sr. Product Line Manager, Sun MicroSystems Will Yapp, VP Worldwide Sales, Openera Technologies

  2. Agenda • George Kontopidis, NMS • IP Multimedia Subsystem Overview • Chad Hart, VDC • The Analyst’s Perspective • Kirk Mosher, Sun • The Platform Perspective • Will Yapp, Openera • The Integrated Mobile Device Perspective

  3. IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) • IMS is the next generation of network architecture for communication services • Specified by the 3rd Generation Partnership Program (3GPP) • IETF, CableLabs, ETSI, ITU, and others • Originated by mobile operator needs • Replaces/evolves the traditional Intelligent Network • Merges with the Next-Generation Networks • Network equipment providers are the drivers • Carriers/operators/service providers are the beneficiaries www.nmscommunications.com

  4. IMS Architecture www.nmscommunications.com

  5. IMS Advantages • Mobility management • Find users, subscriber data • Session orientation • Same session for multiple media • Service control • Personalized profiles • Session service quality (QoS) • Congestion avoidance vs. management • Unified OSS/BSS • Billing and management • Standard interfaces • 3GPP, IETF, ITU, 3WCC www.nmscommunications.com

  6. IMS Value Prop. to Service Providers • Convergence • Devices • Networks • Subscribers • Services • OSS/BSS • New services • Combined services • Mobility and presence • FMC, collaboration, PTT • Faster deployment of new services • Faster turn-around • Standards-based • New pricing models • Bundles, location-based pricing Better ARPU, more MOU, less churn, lower CapEx, lower OpEx www.nmscommunications.com

  7. New Breed of IMS Applications/Services • Enterprise • Rich-media collaboration • Seamless call appearances • Push-to-talk/view • Personal presence management • Sales automation • Entertainment • Video streaming • TV services, cartoons • Network-based gaming with mixed-media and location features • Personalization • My Container • Ubiquitous device delivery • Presence messaging www.nmscommunications.com

  14. New Service Rapid Prototype Modify and Augment Launch Scale Trial Faster Time-to-MarketReducing New Service Introduction from Years to Months “With IMS, new product introduction can go down from 2 years to just 3 to 5 months” - Frost & Sullivan, 2005 • Enabling rapid service creation • Making service experimentation cost effective • Breaking the tie between infrastructure providers and new services • Allowing operators to choose “best of breed” applications and services from different suppliers www.sun.com

  16. IT-fication for Telecom NetworksIt's the Killer Architecture that Matters “The value of IMS is not so much as a specific service enabler...but as a service creation framework in which a variety of multimodal and multimedia services are supported and enabled.”- IDC, IMS Technology & Prospects, July 2005 www.sun.com

  17. Will Yapp VP Worldwide Sales Openera Technologies The Integrated Mobile Device Perspective www.openeratech.com

  18. Market Background • Mobile operators need new services — not just voice! • SMS & ring tones have been hits for teens • Mobile email has been a hit for mobile workers • Profits seen in emerging converged services • Inter-person communication remains a killer app… • But what is beyond basic voice? • Adding presence, location, messaging, picture/video sharing capabilities that subscribers will use is next • Changing the paradigm from “What” first and then “Who” to “Who” first and then “What” • SIP/IMS is leading the charge, and not just on 3G! • 2.5G & FMC too Continued  www.openeratech.com

  19. Market Background • SIP/IMS addresses… • Person-to-person, group and community-based applications • Both peer-to-peer and server-based applications • Fixed-Mobile Convergence (FMC) and dual-mode WiFi/cellular offerings • Carrier investments underscore industry belief in demand for SIP/IMS services • Cingular, Verizon, Sprint, BellSouth — commercial launch 1Q06 • Vodafone, others — commercial launch 2Q06 www.openeratech.com

  20. IMS Services VisionMulti-Access, Device Independent • Cellular Access to IP & IMS Services • GPRS / EDGE • UMTS / 1xEVDO • Cellular Access to 2G Services • 2G • WiFi Access to IMS Service • Proprietary • 3GPP Rel 6 • WiFi Access to 2G/2.5G Services • UMA www.openeratech.com

  21. SIP/IMS MarketDevice Challenges & Solutions In-Stat: “The key to successfully capturing the market for next generation personalized services is control of the end-point device.” • New age application success will be all about the user experience and packaging for targeted demographics in a way that allows the subscriber the ultimate flexibility in personalization • However… current SIP/IMS device solutions have following issues: • SIP/IMS capability in devices is lagging early market needs • SIP/IMS services being delivered as bolt-on point solutions • SIP/IMS services from multiple vendors as bolt-on point solutions lead to poor usability and lack of adoption • FMC targeting VoIP applications only • Ideal SIP/IMS client solution will provide: • A simple, intuitive, IMS-first, end-user experience • Support for all standardized SIP/IMS services • Seamless access capability across service set • Open APIs for extensibility • Portability to multiple platforms • Ability to easily customize, brand and package for targeted subscriber demographic • For downloadable applications either by the subscriber or the operator OTA www.openeratech.com

  22. Conclusion • IMS is a great opportunity • For equipment providers • For operators • For subscribers • It is an evolutionary transition over several years • Expect to see • New breed of applications • New business models • New, dynamic players • NMS is positioned as an excellent partner for your platforms, and your solutions www.nmscommunications.com
