ZTE Corporation, a publicly listed global provider of telecommunications equipment and network solutions, has won the ‘Best Integrated IMS Solution Award’ at the recent IMS World Forum 2012 event in Madrid, Spain.
ZTE was awarded for its IMS based legacy voice service (PSTN/ISDN) emulation solution which has been deployed as part of 80 commercial contracts worldwide.
Complying with ETSI’s TISPAN and 3GPP specifications, ZTE’s IMS based PSTN/ISDN emulation solution, introduces the AGCF (Access Gateway Control Function), core network equipment for fixed terminal access, and supports multiple access modes including H.248, V5, PRI/BRI, H.323, MGCP, NCS, R2/No7 (PBX) and IETF SIP. It provides convergent voice services through the unified voices service platform MMTEL AS. In addition, the solution integrates existing narrowband intelligent devices to introduce unified core control and service triggering for all accessing terminals. As of Q1 2012, the solution has been commercially implemented in many global operators including Telefonica Peru, Tiscali Italy and China Telecom, serving more than 40 million users.
“ZTE focuses on providing innovative IMS solutions, and our continuous investment in R&D has led to these developments in global applications. The company’s achievement is based on providing customized and well designed solutions that encompass our development concept. This award goes a long way in exhibiting our leading position in global IMS fixed network transformation,” said Tu Jiashun, Vice President of ZTE Core Network Product.
