Primal Technologies, a leading developer of telecom services, announced today that the company has commercially deployed Primal Services in a network functions virtualization (NFV) environment with various network operators operating a next generation 4G/LTE and/or IMS core. All Primal Services including Advance Pay/Prepaid/OCS, Voice Mail/Visual VM, SMSC, MMS Server and EIR, which are all SIGTRAN / DIAMETER and SIP based, interconnect to single or multiple 4G/LTE Core and IMS core networks, which are either centralized or decentralized geographically on the IP cloud.
The IP Multimedia Subsystem or IP Multimedia Core Network Subsystem (IMS) is an architectural framework for delivering IP multimedia services. Historically, mobile phones have provided voice call services over a switched-circuit-style network, rather than strictly over an IP packet-switched network. Alternative methods of delivering voice or other multimedia services over IP have become available on smartphones (e.g. VoIP or Skype), but they have not become standardized across the industry. IMS is an architectural framework to provide such standardization.
“Over the past 20 years, Primal has always been committed to open hardware and software, and therefore in the last few years has easily taken the next step to 100% virtualization and IP for its products, thus streamlining costs for the service. Primal NFV has been demonstrated with many customers and we are moving ahead by leveraging resources in a virtualized atmosphere,” said Michael Conway, Vice President.
