BOSTON -- As Principal Members of the MultiService Forum (MSF), Siemens and Operax are demonstrating interoperability of their respective products at the Global MSF Interoperability 2006 event (GMI 2006) hosted in the Verizon Labs, Waltham, MA. The joint solution demonstrates session-based QoS control in this IP Multimedia Subsystem/Next-Generation Network (IMS/NGN) interoperability test. Operax Bandwidth Manager 5500 provides real-time Resource and Admission Control functionality, and Siemens IMS@vantage CFX-5000, provides the Proxy Call Session Control functionality (P-CSCF) with full support for Session Based Local Policy (SBLP) and Border Control Function (BCF) functions. Interoperability is based on the Diameter protocol with extensions aligned with 3GPP and ETSI TISPAN interfaces.

GMI 2006 brings together dozens of carriers and vendors from around the world to test the interoperability of IMS-based infrastructure components in a real-world setting. GMI 2006 provides tangible proof of multi-vendor interoperability for carrier class, QoS enabled, end-to-end voice and multimedia services originating and terminating on fixed and mobile IMS networks, using MSF Release 3 Implementation Agreements.

“End-to-end service management and QoS Control will allow Tier-1 carriers secure a return on the investment they are making in next-generation networks regardless of the technology adopted”, said Chris Merrick, Chief Marketing Officer, Operax. "Operax has pursued a standards-based approach where ease of integration and carrier-grade interoperability with the premier platform providers like Siemens has been the goal. The work we have undertaken with Siemens as part of the GMI program is yet further evidence of the quality of our approach and the traction we are achieving with complementary vendors."
