Voice over LTE Book Review:

Voice over LTE (Long Term Evolution) presents the mechanisms putin place in 4G mobile networks for the transportation of IP packetscontaining voice data and telephone signaling, as well as thetechnologies used to provide a telephone service in the IMS (IPMultimedia Sub-system) network. Despite the difficulty connected to the handover of the 4G networkto the 2G/3G network, a telephone communication will not beestablished on the 4G network. This book analyzes the technologiesthat have been put in place, such as CSFB (Circuit ServiceFallBack), an interim solution that enables a mobile connected tothe 4G network to receive an alert transmitted by the 2G/3Gnetwork. The book also goes on to develop the SIP (Session InformationProtocol) on which the telephone signaling transferred by the 4Gnetwork is based, the IMS network that provides the service anddefines the routing, the SRVCC (Single Radio Voice Call Continuity)mechanism that maintains communication and the TAS (TelephonyApplication Server) that supplies supplementary services. Contents 1. The EPS Network. 2. The LTE Interface. 3. The CSFB Function. 4. SIP and SDP Protocols. 5. The IMS Network. 6. Telephone Services. 7. The SRVCC Function. About the Authors André Perez is a consultant and teacher in networks andtelecommunications.

Performance Optimization of IP Multimedia Subsystem Book Review:

The IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) is the basic network architecture for Next Generation Networks (NGN) which is intended to bridge the divide between the traditional circuit switched and packet switched networks, thereby providing a single network capable of providing all service offerings. IMS is based on the IP infrastructure and it enables the convergence of data, speech and video on the same network platform. The IMS forms the basis of Fixed Mobile Convergence (FMC), where fixed-line operators are striving to provide mobile access and mobile operators are trying to provide fixed access. This is done to provide both services to a customer in a single device. The IMS is based on Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), which is a text-based protocol. The IMS will generally create additional signaling traffic in the IP based networks, so there is a need to take necessary precautions to minimize the signaling overload. This research is based on how the performance of the IMS can be improved by optimization of SIP as well as IMS elements. An analysis and characterization of the signaling traffic generated by IMS has been performed and how the signaling traffic can be reduced by the compression of SIP using the Burrows Wheeler Transform (BWT) has been explored. The queuing models of the IMS have been formulated and the mathematical approach has been used to find the impact of implementing the Hyper-Threading technology on the IMS Elements.

IMS Book Review:

IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) technology, which merges the Internet with interactive telecommunications, represents the here and now for today’s packet-switched networks. Consequently, anyone working with or around these converging fields needs to possess a fundamental understanding of IMS and how this technology is poised to change the way new applications are designed and deployed. IMS: A New Model for Blending Applications goes beyond most references in this field. Rather than offer the usual explanation of the standard itself, the authors address how IMS-based services might be deployed in an operator’s network. Leveraging the inside knowledge gained from years of working at the forefront of IMS research, the authors delineate the application layers and the applications that can be implemented using an IMS network. For those unfamiliar with IMS, they provide an overview of its key components and the signaling standards used for the implementation of an end-to-end IMS service. Significant concepts are conveyed through real-life vignettes that describe how end users might actually use interactive IMS applications in the course of their day. This approach mimics the way an operator’s marketing organization might go about building a business case for IMS application deployment. While technical enough to meet the needs of engineers, this approach will greatly assist marketing, sales, and managerial professionals with gaining a basic understanding of IMS, as well as a sense of the numerous applications driving the field forward.

IMS Multimedia Telephony over Cellular Systems Book Review:

IMS Multimedia Telephony service has been standardized in 3GPP as the replacement of the circuit switched telephony service in cellular networks. The multimedia telephony service consists of several service components such as voice, video and text. ‘IMS Multimedia Telephony over Cellular Systems’ provides a comprehensive overview of the service that will enable enriched telephony for mobile users. Enriched telephony fulfils the user’s desire to communicate in new ways, for example by sharing pictures and video clips. In addition to an overview of the Multimedia Telephony service, the book focuses on the modern media processing methods, which allows the quality of the packet switched voice and video telephony not only to match but also possibly exceed the quality of circuit switched telephony. Such key components as adaptive jitter buffering and adaptation of conversational media are explained in detail. Key features: Detailed description of how Multimedia Telephony sessions are set-up and controlled Analysis showing the capacity and quality of VoIP and Multimedia Telephony in cellular networks Coverage of other IMS services such as PoC specified by 3GPP and OMA Description of suitable QoS and radio bearers for Multimedia Telephony Explanation of the modern radio interface, especially High Speed Packet Access, which is based on concepts such as link adaptation and fast hybrid ARQ The possibilities for the current and future standards covered in this book make it an indispensable resource for engineers, designers and researchers in VoIP, telecommunication companies and universities teaching and conducting research in telecommunications. It will also be of interest to managers needing an in-depth knowledge of the engineering and key issues of this complex technology, and students aspiring to develop a career in this area.
