 IMS - a revolution in Telecommunication
Telecommunications industry is at a crossroads. It was till yesteryears that manytechnologies came into play in telecom industry. Some of these evolved with time andsome started new. All these efforts to make telecommunication more secured, effective,consumer friendly, and cost effective. Recently a new trend emerged to provide acomplete solution for convergence, interoperability, and security. IMS, an acronym for IPMultimedia Subsystem, redefined the inter-working of different networks and provides auser friendly, cost effective solution for the consumers. It made a big impact as it alsoaddresses the problems faced by service providers and mobile operators through standardspecifications to reduce operational cost, roaming problems, and many others. IMS is abig vision of the future of telecommunications it hangs on.
World before IMS
Till early 2000, operators were facing lot of difficulties in interconnecting networksworking on different technologies. With this consumers, when outside the home network were made to pay a big amount towards roaming charges. These overhead chargesincreased as the number of mobile users increased. Though technology evolved to a greatextent, service providers were not ready to go for “rip and replace” option and invest ahuge amount to have a 3G system in place.The GSM system which started as 2G technology evolved into GPRS (also known as2.5G), then to a 3G called UMTS (Universal Mobile Telecommunications System)Almost at the same time a new technology came into existence called CDMA (CodeDivision Multiple Access). This system developed with a greater speed in United Statesand evolved to 3G system called CDMA2000 1xEV-DO and then to CDMA2000 1xEV-DV.In IP domain people were moving from H323 to all SIP and RTP based systemsemphasizing more on security, bandwidth utilization, and 3G features. IP MultimediaSubsystem (IMS) came as a Next Generation Network (NGN) to address these issueswith Service oriented architecture.
IMS for everyone
The international standardization of IMS started in 2000 within 3GPP and 3GPP2 for themobile world, and has now been extended in 2005 towards the fixed network domain byITU-T and ETSI under the banner of NGN standardization.The aim of IMS is not only to provide new services but the services, current and future,that the internet provides. The primary advantages being,
Cost effective
: IMS standardization is done based on horizontal architecture. Unlike theconventional systems, which use vertical based architecture, horizontal based architectureis more flexible. A single application can be used in different network interfaces.
Seamless integration with 802.11(WiFi) and 802.16(WiMax) wirelesstechnologies. Supports both PSTN (fixed) and mobile networks. It also supports multi-vendor environment.
IMS started as a technology for 3G mobile network, but soon become asNGN covering fixed, wireless and mobile networks using SIP protocol. With IMSconvergence in place, users will have single network for home telephones, cable TV, IPtraffic and mobile phone service. Thus convergence being a crucial part of it, IMS isexpanding its horizon bysupporting features like
Single Sign On
 Better QoS
: With 3G technology, it made possible to provide a better quality of service.Some of these include video on demand, video conferencing, voice and datacommunications.All these add-ons give operators the necessary ability to control and change each of theservice.IMS will eventually work with all the networks; fixed, mobile, and wireless with packetswitching functions, such as GPRS, UMTS, CDMA2000, WiFi, WiMax, and old circuitswitched phones.

 Home Subscriber Server (HSS)
is the master database server containing thesubscription-related information of all users to support the IMS network entities as CSSF,AS to handle calls/sessions. The HSS is similar to Home Location Register(HLR) inGSM network.
