VANCOUVER -- Convedia Corporation today announced that Peter Briscoe, Convedia's President and CEO, has been named to the board of directors of the recently formed IMS Forum. Convedia, along with other founding members and industry participants, will work together in the IMS forum to accelerate the adoption of IP Multimedia Subsystems (IMS) by providing an environment for the discussion and resolution of real-world implementation issues related to open multi-vendor IMS implementations.

IMS Forum members, comprised of service providers, equipment vendors, application providers, system integrators and government agencies will be working together to develop cost-effective technical frameworks for converged IP services delivered over wireline, cable, 3G, WiFi and WiMAX networks. The IMS Forum will leverage its heritage and build upon the existing foundation created by its predecessors: the International Packet Communications Consortium (IPCC), the International Softswitch Consortium (ISC) and the IP Multimedia Carrier Coalition.

"IMS will enable the delivery of traditional voice and new multimedia services at lower costs and with greater flexibility than ever before," said Michael Khalilian, chairman and president, IMS Forum. "Convedia has a long history of industry leadership in delivering products which fully embrace the fundamental principles of the IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS), namely open, standards-based IP platforms for providing telecommunication services to customers regardless of how, where and when they want to access them. I am very pleased to recognize and welcome Convedia as one of the founding members of the IMS Forum, and to have Peter Briscoe playing such a key role in the IMS Forum."

"True IMS deployments will consist of a multi-vendor service delivery platform connected seamlessly together via well defined standards," noted Peter Briscoe, Convedia's President and CEO. "Through the cooperation of many industry stakeholders in the IMS Forum, today's leading service providers and solution vendors are taking an important step forward in addressing real-world IMS implementation issues faced by vendors and services providers alike around the globe."
