RCS VoLTE Interoperability Test (IOT) Event
in October 2012. This global multi-vendor interoperability event is organized by the MultiService Forum (MSF), the European Telecoms Standards Institute (ETSI) and the GSM Association (GSMA), and hosted by China Mobile in the China Mobile Research Institute Laboratory in Beijing and by Telecom Slovenia Group in Sintesio, Kranj, Slovenia.
Radisys will supply its Software Media Server, along with technical expertise to facilitate rapid integration with other participant equipment in a fully functioning IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) ecosystem environment. The Radisys Software Media Server will be performing as an IMS Media Resource Function (MRF), responding to media processing requests from IMS call control equipment supplied by other vendor participants in this interoperability event. It will support VoLTE announcements and branding service test cases, along with Rich Communications Suite (RCS) call flows under the control of the GENBAND A2™ Communications Application Server. In addition, Radisys will also supply a prototype IMS video application server and video User Element (UE) equipment to demonstrate RCS video sharing, video conferencing, and video transcoding use cases throughout the interoperability event.
“Standards-based VoLTE interoperability is of great importance to GENBAND’s mobile operator customers so we are proud to support the RCS VoLTE Interoperability Event,” said BG Kumar, President of GENBAND’s Multimedia Business Unit. “For test cases requiring real-time media processing, our standards-compliant integration, with the Radisys Software Media Server acting as an IMS MRF, demonstrates the ability of the GENBAND A2 Communications Application Server to support a comprehensive VoLTE and RCS service in a multi-vendor IMS architecture.”
