Samsung unveils WiMAX-based IMS products

Samsung Telecommunications America (Samsung) unveiled its IP-based Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) solution that will enable the global availability of converged telecommunications services via a WiMAX network. The latest product portfolio consists of two elements that support the IMS solution -- the Radio Access Station (RAS) and the Access Control Router (ACR). The IMS network, which is the basis of Samsung's WiMAX platform, will deliver high-speed services like voice, video conferencing and instant messaging, to rural and suburban locations not accessible by current technology. The solution also will create broadband hot zones in more densely populated areas.
