  3. 3. + The Problem, Solution and End-Game! 3! - It is envisaged that by promoting application and client development for IMS the telecommunication operators would embrace and embark to roll-out the infrastructure in the near term (2nd phase).! - The mission of IMS Centre of Excellence (CoE) in the 1st phase is to develop IMS-based applications and clients that would spur the growth of IMS.! - Once the IMS application and client are developed more rich further integration to PSTN could be explored in other phases once the basic setup has been completed. ! - The CoE would be IMS ready for telecommunications operators to port and implement in their network with minimal changes.! - Currently telecommunications operators are hesitant to embark on IMS and slow in implementing NGN infrastructure due to the lack of appealing IMS applications.! The Problem! The Solution! The End- Game!
  4. 4. + Definition of NGN (ITU-T Y.2001)! 4! • IP-based managed network! • Fixed and mobile convergence! • Packet-based network! • Multiple-broadband, QoS-enabled transport technologies! • Service related functions are independent from underlying transport-related technologies! • Offers unrestricted access by users to different service providers! • Supports generalized mobility which will allow cosistent and ubiquitous provision of services to users! • IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS)!
  5. 5. + The Need for IMS! !  No single reason, but several disruptions or changes in the environment.! !  Operator s will to migrate networks and services into IP-based, to reduce cost level - rationalization of production.! !  New standalone service opportunities: PoC, IM, Video Sharing, and enablers.! !  Bundling of services in a cost efficient way. ! !  Creating new environment for applications.! !  Convergence: services and applications for multiple accesses with smaller development costs.! !  No need for several service specific platforms. Handling various tasks, including charging and authentication with one single platform. ! 5! June 7, 2006!

  11. 11. + The Need to Create a Regional IMS Ecosystem! 11! “Developer Culture” can synonymously be phrased as a “Developer Ecosystem . Either way, the idea is that a “developer culture” encompasses:-! • A shared understanding of the problem(s) being solved.! • A shared understanding of the general solutions to those problems.! • The methods those solutions are applied to the problems, the means of solving the problems.! • And, often, a method for evolving and adapting the community to new problems.!

 IMS COE assists individuals and companies who have the intention, drive and potential to excel in the mobility application industry.
 ! !  Nurturing for Venture Creation
 IMS COE focuses on nurturing mobile application developers in venture creations, i.e. from idea generation to design, development, commercialization, all the way to creating and developing a business.
 ! !  Platform for Applications Development
 IMS COE will provide an environment for Developers to develop and test the mobile applications. Participants will be given SDK to assist in the development.
 ! !  Commercialization Support
 IMS COE provides Participants advice and consultation on the best possible means to market their products and services. As an immediate first step, IMS COE provides a channel for selected applications to be offered to local telcos subscribers; a direct go-to-market opportunity. Potential market will also include regional ventures.! 15! 15!
