Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN) has won a contract from China Mobile to deploy its IMS Core platform, hiQ MMTel application server and Session Border Controller (SBC) to help support converged communications offerings. The first phase of the deal will see the vendor installing its IMS core platform and multimedia voice applications for business customers in Beijing, Yunnan, Jiangxi, Xinjiang, Hunan and Fujian. Future phases will include an expansion of the IMS core network and the addition of non-voice multimedia applications such as video sharing. ‘Today’s users demand seamless access to multimedia applications without being constrained by the devices or network they are using,’ commented Ding Weiqing, head of the China Mobile customer business team at NSN.
