T4: Overview of the 3GPP IMS / 3GPP2 MMD Principles, Architecture and Protocols

Instructor: Thomas Magedanz. Technical University of Berlin, Germany

This tutorial provides a technical overview of the architecture, components and protocols of the emerging 3GPP IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) / 3GPP2 Multimedia Domain (MMD) which provides the technological basis for the provision of mobile multimedia services within 3G packet networks. This tutorial looks at the driving forces for the IMS architecture definition, introduces the key signalling and control protocols of all IP networks (i.e., SIP and Diameter) forming the basis for IMS component interactions, and explains the key IMS elements and their interactions. Special attention will be given to the IMS application server options, namely CAMEL, OSA/Parlay and SIP AS. The tutorial ends with an overview of the FOKUS IMS play ground: www.fokus.fraunhofer.de/ims

Thomas Magedanz is professor in the electrical engineering and computer sciences faculty at the Technical University of Berlin, Germany, leading the chair for next generation networks. In addition, he is director of the ³3G beyond² division at Fraunhofer Institute FOKUS, which also provides the national 3G beyond test and development centre in Germany. He is senior member of the IEEE, editorial board member of several journals, and the author of more than 120 technical papers/articles. He is the author of two books on IN standards and IN evolution. Based on his 15 years of experience in the teaching complex IT and telecommunication technologies to different customer segments in an easy to digest way, Dr. Thomas Magedanz is a globally recognized technology coach. His employments as university professor and division head of a major German R&D organization make him a prime choice for such trainings, as he is able to provide a non-biased presentation of the technologies. He regularly provides strategic and technology
