IRVING, Texas and ESPOO, Finland -- Nokia announced it successfully demonstrated live IP multimedia applications based on its 3GPP2/3GPP-compliant IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) over a commercial CDMA 2000 network. Nokia is the first company to complete this demonstration, broadening its IMS capabilities to include CDMA in addition to the evolutions of GSM technology.

IMS is the element of a wireless carrier's core network infrastructure that enables mobile and fixed devices to interact using Internet protocol (IP) sessions. Using the commercially available Nokia IP Multimedia Subsystem, Nokia demonstrated peer-to-peer gaming with simultaneous instant messaging, and file sharing. The demonstration included interoperability between GSM/GPRS terminals and CDMA terminals, as well as with CDMA 1xEV-DO Release 0-capable laptop computers.

"Nokia is diligently making strides in our commitment to CDMA technology both in core network infrastructure and devices," said Tim Johnson, Vice President, Business Development, Nokia Networks. "Currently, the CDMA market represents a significant percentage of annual capital spending for wireless infrastructure in North America. Today's announcement demonstrates that Nokia is increasingly better positioned to serve this market."
