The article reports on the plan of multiple system operators (MSOs) to deploy new multimedia services on the basis of a converged network architecture. MSOs are migrating to a standards-based IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) architecture that supports revenue-generating enhanced voice and multimedia services. Through the IMS infrastructures, MSOs will have the ability to provide much more than basic voice services to Session Initiation Protocol-based endpoints. When MSOs will migrate from their current PacketCable infrastructures to PacketCable Release 2, they will have the ability to deliver personalized media-rich applications including integrated instant messaging and chat and others.
