DENVER -- The IMS Forum and the NGN Forum announced today that they have merged to form the IMS/NGN Forum(TM). The partnership is designed to create, test and deliver NGN services. By combining IMS, SIP, Unified Communications (UC) and Service Delivery Platforms (SDP), the organization unites developers, service providers, integrators and solutions providers to further NGN and IMS deployment. The NGN Forum is the pioneer in developing profitable business models for converged services targeting consumer and enterprise markets.

"The combined IMS/NGN Forum is the first to recognize that with increased competition in voice, entertainment and enterprise markets there is an urgent need for fixed, mobile and cable MSO service providers to partner with application development companies, digital content providers, enterprise and smart phone manufacturers, and financial institutions," said Michael Khalilian, Chairman and President of the IMS/NGN Forum. "This partnership enables our members to fully address the emergence of a single market comprised of information technology (IT), telecommunications, and media sectors that formerly operated in separate markets."
