IMS Standardization Tracking Report

Tracking the standardization of IMS in 3GPP is a difficult and time consuming task. There are so many working groups involved (e.g. SA1, SA2, SA3, CT1), and so many meetings.

I recently came across Hughes Systique Corporation, a Consulting, Development and System Integration company Headquarted in the US,
which seems to be doing a lot of interesting work in the IMS, Web 2.0 and convergence of the same. Of the various other things they offer, they produce
an 'IMS Standards Tracking report' which is sent out to their clients once in two months and keeps readers updated on new technology updates
in various 3GPP forums, including in IMS-WiMAX interworking. There is an annual subscription at an affordable cost.

Arjun , who is responsible for the IMS & Converged Applications practice in the company contacted me recently and emailed me
a copy of one of their reports to see. He told me, in addition to the report, they also offer free conversations with the key analysts who prepare it. This is a 100% technology
report and not a market one, therefore serving a niche that was missing. With the recently uptake on IMS, Arjun believes this report will be a very cost effective solution for companies
who cannot afford to travel or track 300+ 3GPP CRs in each meeting.

I encourage you to have a look at it. If your company decides to subscribe to the report, please let HSC know that you got the information from The IMS Lantern.
