Ericsson announces IMS deal with Telus

Telecom vendor Ericsson on Thursday announced its deal with Canadian mobile service provider Telus for deploying an IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS).

Ericsson says its IMS technology enables Telus, which has around 12 million customer connections in Canada, to offer convergent services in voice, data and video calling over both wireline and wireless networks.

Telus customers will have the ability to access a variety of multimedia functions and applications including High Definition voice, management across multiple devices, and video calling over LTE.

Eros Spadotto, executive vice-president, Technology Strategy and Operations, Telus, said IMS technology will enable the telecom operator to offer next-generation solutions that transform the way our customers live, work, and play.

In addition, IMS, a cost-efficient system, will enable TELUS to generate new revenue streams through differentiated services based on the Rich Communication Services (RCS) and Voice over LTE (VoLTE).

Ericsson claims that it has signed over 110 commercial IMS contracts worldwide, of which around 70 are in commercial operation, establishing the company as the world’s most-experienced IMS partner.
