CANNES, France -- At the 3GSM World Congress trade show and exhibition today, Lucent Technologies (NYSE: LU - News) announced the integration of six unique Bell Labs-developed software technologies into its industry-leading IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) solution, enabling converged network operators to create and deliver simple, seamless, secure, portable, and personal multimedia services to their subscribers. These software technologies are part of a new Service Enhancement Layer that gives Lucent's IMS solution -- part of Lucent's Accelerate(TM) Next Generation Communications Solutions portfolio -- distinct advantages over competing IMS implementations.

IMS is an industry standard way of building next-generation networks that will deliver rich IP multimedia services to subscribers over wireless and/or wireline networks. Lucent's approach has resulted in an IMS solution that greatly enhances the ability of service providers to integrate existing applications into the IMS environment and introduce new Value Over IP(TM), VoIP and multimedia services simply and cost-effectively. The Bell Labs IMS service enhancements enable operators to more easily deliver services that blend voice, video and data capabilities, simplifying the creation of converged "lifestyle" service bundles. It also helps reduce the introduction costs and time-to-market for new services by leveraging a common applications infrastructure to deliver services with a common "look and feel" on third- generation (3G) mobile, WiFi, and wireline networks.

"Because of our leadership role in driving the development and adoption of the open standards-based IMS architecture, Bell Labs is able to take that architecture to the next level by enhancing the defined elements of IMS, and adding new capabilities required to deliver on the 'blended lifestyle' services vision," said Jeff Jaffe, president, Research and Advanced Technologies, at Lucent's Bell Labs. "Lucent's IMS Solution -- which leverages Bell Labs' unmatched expertise and experience in software innovation - incorporates technologies and techniques that improve upon the basic IMS standard dramatically."
