Cisco Readies for Fixed Mobile Convergence

Cisco Systems say they have demonstrated continued momentum in service provider leadership by enhancing the open Service Exchange Framework (SEF) of its Internet Protocol Next-Generation Network (IP NGN) architecture with a series of new and enhanced products offering comprehensive support for all IP applications, including those delivered over an IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS).

The company says that this enables cable, wireline and mobile operators to offer services based on fixed-mobile convergence (FMC) and to deliver application and subscriber-aware services to achieve greater efficiencies, improve profitability and enhance control of their networks and businesses.
