Telus deploys Ericsson IMS

2 Dec 2013

Canadian full-service telco Telus has contracted Swedish vendor Ericsson to deploy an IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS), for the purpose of offering convergent services in voice, data and video calling over both wireline and wireless networks. Based on the IMS platform, Telus customers will have the ability to access a variety of multimedia functions and applications including High Definition (HD) voice, management across multiple devices, and video calling over LTE. Eros Spadotto, executive vice-president of technology strategy and operations at Telus, said that IMS technology will enable next-generation solutions that ‘transform the way customers live, work, and play’, while the IMS represents a cost-efficient system enabling Telus to generate new revenue streams through differentiated services based on Rich Communication Services (RCS) and voice-over-LTE (VoLTE).
