The article discusses on the result of a study conducted by Lucent Technologies Inc. that determines the advantages of the development of Internet protocol multimedia subsystem (IMS) in the U.S. The survey revealed that IMS can decrease the time to market for service by 25 percent and operating expenses by up to 25 to 30 percent, depending on the number and type of applications deployed. Deploying IMS could also provide as much as a 5 to 1 net present value advantage over deploying a point solution, such as voice over Internet protocol service integrated on a softswitch platform.
