Syndesis, the worldwide leader in Convergent Service Delivery Management (CSDM) solutions, today announced the Syndesis IMS Foundation, a solution bundle facilitating rapid service creation and seamless migration to next-generation service delivery architectures based on the IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS). Tens of millions of satisfied subscribers already receive their next-generation services thanks to Syndesisâ€™ award-winning solutions. Now with IMS Foundation, Syndesis is setting the new standard for service delivery with the ability to activate services involving both applications and network connectivity with one simple-to-use platform.
Over the past 20 years Syndesis has always been singularly focused on enabling service providers to rapidly introduce new, highly profitable services. Syndesisâ€™ solutions enable service providers to simply and quickly define, design, and activate services such IPTV, Triple/Quad Play, IP-VPNs, Unified Messaging, and others.
IMS Foundation builds on these unique capabilities and extends Syndesisâ€™ service delivery management solutions to support IMS architectures, including:
Simple, unified control over both applications and connectivity, providing a management plane that bridges the IMS layers and enables active management of Quality of Service (QoS) needed to ensure service integrity.
Pragmatic evolution to the next-generation of service delivery, including IMS and support for Service Delivery Platforms, in a non-disruptive manner that leverages existing systems and processes.
A clear migration path to IMS and hybrid IMS architectures, including support for SDP-based pre-IMS service delivery infrastructures.
Massive scalability required to support subscriber-initiated activation requests and other self-service capabilities for new applications and existing application configuration changes.
“IMS will have a revolutionary impact on communications services and Syndesis is ensuring that service providers will be able to realize the significant business benefits promised by IMS,” says Mark Nicholson, Chief Technology Officer for Syndesis. “At the same time, the transformation to IMS must be controlled and logical, and Syndesisâ€™ IMS Foundation enables a smooth and seamless migration to IMS or hybrid IMS architectures.”
IMS Foundation is available immediately and is a bundle of solutions from Syndesis, including:
Syndesisâ€™ industry-unique network-aware and service-aware discovery and activation engine;
SyndesisÂ® NetOptimizerâ„¢, which simplifies the mass migration of services to new infrastructure; and,
The Syndesis IP Extensibility Module, a long-awaited IP service creation and delivery component that dramatically simplifies the introduction of new IP services.
Unlike systems that try to design and activate services based on off-line representations of the network, Syndesisâ€™ solutions are fully integrated into the industryâ€™s most advanced bi-directional discovery and activation engine, which enables all actions to be driven from live, “as is” views of the actual network and services. As a result, Syndesisâ€™ solutions achieve massive throughput and scalability. Syndesis has enabled “first-time-right” fulfillment processes across its worldwide customer base, significantly enhancing the competitive position and profitability of these industry-leading service providers.
