There is a good amount of news in the IMS space these days and perhaps most exciting is Ericsson working with Beijing Netcom, a branch of China Netcom to provide an IMS platform for the Olympics.
It will be interesting to see what sorts of applications the companies come up with and I certainly wish I was going so I could see them myself.
In other exciting IMS news, Radvision today announced that Quanta Computer is implementing its new IMS Video Share Application which provides complete, smooth integration of IMS video sharing services for Windows
Using this solution, service providers can allow users to upgrade an audio call to a unidirectional video call. In this manner a user could show others what they see -- but in real time.
These two events alone are huge for IMS and have the potential to grow awareness of IP multimedia Subsystem technology to not only operators but wireless customers. I am looking forward to seeing IMS applications rolled out more widely in 2008.
