Tatara Systems is introducing a range of mobile solutions, including an IMS-compliant solution for fixed mobile convergence voice and data services.
The IMS solution consists of the Tatara subscriber gateway sitting between the access network and the IMS core, the Tatara Service Manager SDK, which resides on laptops and PDAs, and emerging dual-mode handset and smartphone platforms such as Windows Mobile and Symbian.
SIP-based IMS technology is becoming standard through the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP), a co-operative venture between the world’s major standardisation bodies. 3GPP has achieved broad endorsement as the next-generation IP multimedia services architecture across major comms service provider markets.
Another new solution is SMS over IP, which allows comms service providers to seamlessly hand-off SMS traffic from their legacy circuit network to an IP network. This gives one-number access to all SMS-based services such as message indication, business services and entertainment applications when the user is on the IP network.
The same solution can support the roll-out of other voice and data services, including one-number voice, MMS, WAP and location-based services.
