23 March 2007
Televoting and Prepaid, original IMS applications created by Ericpol, will be presented by Nortel and BEA Systems Inc. at CTIA Wireless in Orlando, USA, 27-29 March.
Ericpol Televoting is an IMS application which integrates mobile telephony and IPTV. The service, developed entirely by Ericpol, will be presented on Nortel’s stand No. 2663 using the example of an opinion poll: viewers will be voting for their favourite extreme sports while watching a TV broadcast.
The Prepaid service will be shown on the stand of Ericpol’s partner, BEA Systems Inc., No. 875. The application enables the deployment of convergent prepaid services using the latest BEA platform. The users can tap and have wide access to multimedia, including video-conferences and the use of Video on Demand.
IMS (IP Multimedia Subsystem) is a technology which allows telecom operators to deliver services based on the IP protocol. As it combines the Internet, TV and fixed and mobile telephony, IMS is becoming the key technology in the field of convergent telecom solutions. The technology makes it possible to implement the most advanced services. While being fast and accessible, it also offers high quality and low costs.
