Somerset, NJ (PRWEB) June 6, 2005
Leapstone Systems, a leading provider of intelligent service delivery and content management solutions, today announced that its CCE serviceBROKER has been tested with the HP OpenCall Home Subscriber Server (HSS) and integrated with HP technology utilizing IntelÂ® building blocks to create the framework for a truly open IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) solution. The solution enables service providers to create, deploy and manage synchronized voice, data, and multimedia applications.
Service providers are looking to new enhanced services to boost average revenue per user (ARPU). Because the success of particular services is difficult to predict, service providers need a dynamic framework which will allow them to offer promising new services quickly, add resources for successful services as demand increases, and downplay or remove unsuccessful services easily. IMS is a modular standards-based environment that uses the Internet Protocol (IP) and the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) to give service providers the flexibility they need. Because of the anticipated heavy usage of IMS infrastructure, the combination of LeapstoneÂs CCE serviceBROKER on HP technology utilizing IntelÂ® building blocks based on AdvancedTCA* promises to provide a robust system environment for IMS infrastructure deployment.
"The market for IMS solutions is heating up rapidly," said Paul Shaneck, Leapstone VP Sales & Marketing. ÂCarriers the world over are looking for standards-based modular communications platforms that deliver services such as data, voice over IP, video streaming and video telephony in a simple cohesive architecture. Leapstone is committed to open IMS solutions and is delivering key components of this emerging architecture that provide significant value to our customers."
LeapstoneÂs CCE serviceBROKER plays a vital role within an IMS architecture, providing a number of IMS functions, including subscriber service profile generation, Serving-Call Session Control (S-CSCF), Service Capability Interaction Manager (SCIM) and dynamic registration and utilization of subscriber service profiles.
The CCE serviceBROKER has been integrated and tested with the HP OpenCall HSS which hosts subscriber data in an IMS environment.
To ensure maximum flexibility, interoperability and scalability for service providers, the IMS solution features AdvancedTCA* platforms built on IntelÂ® processors, open source Linux operating systems, and open protocols and interfaces based on 3GPP and 3GPP2 IMS specifications.
"As the industry moves away from proprietary architectures, industry standards-based modular communications platforms based on IntelÂ® building blocks are proving to be the platform of choice for time-to-market new service delivery,Â said Robert Heymann, director, communications infrastructure market development at Intel. ÂLeapstone is delivering on this with its CCE serviceBROKER solution for AdvancedTCA IP Multimedia Subsystems."
SUPERCOMM, the world's premier annual exhibition and conference for communications service providers and private network managers, comes to Chicago's McCormick Place, June 6-9. Those attending Supercomm may visit the IntelÂ® booth and through a series of demonstrations, Leapstone, in working closely with industry-leading companies, will show how their integrated IMS solution will enable easy deployment of real time multimedia services, such as enhanced messaging, multimedia conferencing, VoIP and multi-user gaming.
