The IMS is the foundation architecture for the next generation of mobile phones, wireless-enabled PDAs, PCs, and the like. IMS delivers multimedia content (audio, video, text, etc.) over all types of networks. For network engineers/administrators and telecommunications engineers it will be essential to not only understand IMS architecture, but to also be able to apply it at every stage of the network design process. This book will contain pragmatic information on how to engineer IMS networks as well as an applications-oriented approach for the engineering and networking professionals responsible for making IMS function in the real world. * Describes the convergence of wireless IMS (IP Multimedia Subsystem) with other networks, including wireline and cable * Discusses building interfaces for end users and IMS applications servers * Explores network management issues with IMS
Voice over LTE (Long Term Evolution) presents the mechanisms putin place in 4G mobile networks for the transportation of IP packetscontaining voice data and telephone signaling, as well as thetechnologies used to provide a telephone service in the IMS (IPMultimedia Sub-system) network. Despite the difficulty connected to the handover of the 4G networkto the 2G/3G network, a telephone communication will not beestablished on the 4G network. This book analyzes the technologiesthat have been put in place, such as CSFB (Circuit ServiceFallBack), an interim solution that enables a mobile connected tothe 4G network to receive an alert transmitted by the 2G/3Gnetwork. The book also goes on to develop the SIP (Session InformationProtocol) on which the telephone signaling transferred by the 4Gnetwork is based, the IMS network that provides the service anddefines the routing, the SRVCC (Single Radio Voice Call Continuity)mechanism that maintains communication and the TAS (TelephonyApplication Server) that supplies supplementary services. Contents 1. The EPS Network. 2. The LTE Interface. 3. The CSFB Function. 4. SIP and SDP Protocols. 5. The IMS Network. 6. Telephone Services. 7. The SRVCC Function. About the Authors André Perez is a consultant and teacher in networks andtelecommunications. He works with industrialists and operatorsregarding architecture studies and leads training on the 4G and IMSnetworks for NEXCOM.
Take Part in the Future of Wireless/Wireline Convergence The IP multimedia subsystem (IMS), established as the foundation for future wireless and wireline convergence, is the bedrock that will facilitate easy deployment on new, rich, personalized multimedia communication services that mix telecom and data services. Designers, planners, and researchers of communication systems will need to make full use of the technology occurring with this convergence if they want to be the ones providing end users with new and efficient services that are as cost-effective as they are innovative. To provide researchers and technicians with the tools they need to optimize their role in this communication revolution, the IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) Handbook presents all the technical aspects of the IMS needed to support the growth of digital traffic and the implementation of underlying networks. This guide covers everything from basic concepts to research-grade material, including the future direction of the architecture. Organized in three sections, the book brings together the technical savvy of 50 pioneering experts from around the world, providing complete coverage of relevant concepts, technologies, and services. Learn How IMS Will Speed Innovation Filling the gap between existing traditional telecommunications and Internet technologies, IMS has led to an environment in which new services and concepts are introduced more quickly than ever before, such as reusable service components and real-time integration. The technology promises to be a cost-effective evolutionary path to future wireless and wireline convergences that will meet next-generation service requirements.
If you need to know the IMS vision you need to read this book.... The IMS (IP Multimedia Subsystem) is the exciting new technology that will merge the Internet with the cellular world. It will make Internet technologies such as the web, email, instant messaging, presence, and videoconferencing available nearly everywhere. The 3G IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) provides a thorough overview of the IMS and its technologies. Throughout, the authors first describe how each technology works on the Internet and then explain how the same technology is adapted to work in the IMS, enabling readers to take advantage of any current and future Internet service. Presents an introduction to the IMS - its goals, history, vision, the organizations involved in its standardization and architecture Discusses the signalling plane of the IMS including protocols, such as SIP and Diameter, used between the IMS architectural entities. Also describes how the IETF developed these protocols and how they are used in the IMS architecture Describes the media plane of the IMS and discusses Internet protocols that are not currently used in the IMS but may be in the future Provides SIP-based service examples such as presence, instant messaging and Push-to-Talk Engineers, programmers, business managers, marketing representatives, and technically aware users will all find this book invaluable as it will help them to understand how the IMS works and the business model behind it.
With coverage that draws from diverse disciplines, Systems Engineering Tools and Methods demonstrates how, using integrated or concurrent engineering methods, you can empower development teams. Copiously illustrated with figures, charts, and graphs, the book offers methods, frameworks, techniques, and tools for designing, implementing, and managing

This book shows the reader how to write a system engineering management plan (SEMP) that reflects the company's identity and is appropriate to most customers' requirements, e.g., MIL-STD-499, ISO 9001, the U.S. Air Force Integrated Management System, and EIA STD 632. The first section of this book provides a brief introduction to the process of developing a SEMP. The remainder contains a source model of a SEMP that is generic in nature. A computer disk is included with the book to provide the SEMP in a form (Microsoft Word) that can be used for the reader's own plan.

This book constitutes the proceedings of the 6th International ICST Conference, TridentCom 2010, held in Berlin, Germany, in May 2010. Out of more than 100 submitted contributions the Program Committee finally selected 15 full papers, 26 practices papers, and 22 posters. They focus on topics as Internet testbeds, future Internet research, wireless sensors, media and mobility, and monitoring in large scale testbeds.
The next generation of Business Process Management (BPM) methods and tools will support the development of a new generation of service-enabled applications that change and evolve over time. The trend is moving from relatively stable, organization-specific applications to dynamic ones supporting business processes. This book is an outcome of the International Workshop on Business System Management and Engineering (BSME 2010), held in Malaga, Spain, in June/July 2010, in conjunction with the TOOLS 2010 federated conferences and under the aegis of the EU Network of Excellence on Service Software and Systems (S-Cube). The goal of the workshop was to bring together experts in the fields of business process management, service-oriented architectures, and service security to discuss the current state of research and identify new issues, challenges, and research directions. The results of these discussions are reflected in this book.
