  • Mind Commerce LLC

The Market for IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS): Components and User Equipment is the first in a three part series of IMS reports from Mind Commerce. This first report addresses IMS components and UE, the second and third reports will cover applications and services.

This first report analyzes and forecasts the key IMS Components and User Equipment (UE). The publication evaluates IMS based on its evolution and business drivers with an emphasis on its role of plugging gaps in existing networks. The report also covers the challenges faced by IMS migration. The report also discusses the architecture of the components and UE along with insights regarding components and UEs of existing networks that have served as baseline and predecessor for IMS network elements. Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), the backbone of IMS, is also covered. The report is particularly distinguished with its analysis of key IMS vendors, providing vendor background, their IMS strategies, and product and solution evaluation. Finally, the report includes detailed market forecasts for IMS Components and UEs including regional market segmentation.
