i-MCS
IMS/NGN Core and Border Suite

SCENARIO

Telecommunication Market is nowadays stressed between the aggressive and fast on the market Over The Top players that provides voice, video and data services almost for free bypassing Network and Service Providers and the constantly increasing Customer’s demand for more and more bandwidth to exploit the OTT’s services and apps.
Service Providers needs to re-enforce the strength of their asset, the Network, avoiding to become a dumb pipe providing new services with fast time to market, new Quality of Service and new Quality of Experience and in the meanwhile moving smoothly to a new architecture enabling consolidation; reduction in footprint and consumption; modularity and flexibility to quickly react to market changes; converged capabilities to handle with a Single Core fixed and mobile subscribers, legacy and innovative devices; interconnection with any other external networks and, even, with OTT.
Italtel can guide Service Provider in this evolution thanks to its expertise in network migration and evolution and thanks to the Italtel Multimedia Communication Suite (i-MCS) product line supporting software modularity, Network Function Virtualization and Cloud, LTE and IMS functionalities.

BENEFITS
