Motorola Inc. has announced a joint effort with Intel Corp. to create a proof of concept for IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) network functions based on Motorola’s Advanced Tarantellas communications server.

The two firms say it will allow telecom equipment manufacturers and their service provider customers to deliver new and differentiated multimedia communication services over converged networks faster, more cost effectively and with greater scalability and flexibility than with proprietary technologies.

Using open, standards-based communications servers as the foundation for IMS network elements will help accelerate the deployment of the infrastructure to realize Motorola’s vision of seamless mobility, they said.

The IMS communications server proof of concept will showcase a pre-integrated Open Application-Enabling Platform from Motorola, including Advanced blades with Dual Low Voltage Intel Xenon processors and Intel IXP2850 network processors.

“Having two of the industry’s top players working together to endorse specific network capabilities will help facilitate the adoption of targeted IMS-based applications by carriers,” said Rob Rich, executive vice president of the Yankee Group.
