Com Hem launches 'first commercial IMS in Sweden'

24 Oct 2007

Triple-play cable operator Com Hem is the first Swedish company to deploy a commercial IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) platform, according to a press release from the system’s vendor Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN). IMS is a new network architecture that enables telephone services and richer communications applications based on the Internet Protocol (IP) and Session Initiation Protocol (SIP). Com Hem’s IMS solution from NSN includes the IMS Core and SURPASS hiQ 8000 VoIP application server, and the cableco is initially using the platform to provide VoIP services, which can also be connected to additional networks thanks to the expanded cooperation with other operators made possible by IMS. According to the release, with IMS, Com Hem (which includes UPC Sweden) now has the ability to speed up the introduction of new functions and subscriber services, as well as enter into new cooperation with other telecom operators, while reducing operations expenses.
