SOA and Web X.0
                                           VoIPFuture Ltd. is the new partner at the Fraunhofer FOKUS IMS
6-7 November 2008, Berlin                  Playground. The Hamburg based company is integrating its ‘Quality
                                           of Diagnosis’ technology for the automatic diagnosis of the quality
                                           of Voice-over-IP package streams in the FOKUS IMS testing and
                                           development environment. The new analysis and diagnostic tools
                                           and their monitoring and management systems enable exact
                                           identification of the specific root causes of quality of voice
                                           impairment in Next Generation Networks.
                                           “With the diagnosis tools of VoIPFuture we are extending our IMS
                                           management system in one of its key areas,” says Prof. Dr. Thomas
                                           Magedanz, head of the FOKUS Next Generation Infrastructure unit,
                                           explaining why FOKUS moved to integrate the VoIPFuture solution.
                                           “All over the world major carriers are migrating their infrastructures to
                                           NGN and IMS technologies. So obviously the quality of Voice-over-IP is
                                           a central concern, and to ensure quality of voice we need powerful tools
                                           for diagnosis and analysis. The technology of VoIPFuture offers us just
                                           what we need to extend our range of services.”
                                           Along with integration of VoIPFuture technology in the heterogeneous
                                           IMS testing and development environment, the alliance between
                                           Fraunhofer FOKUS and VoIPFuture also envisages the conduct of various
                                           test series and R&D projects. “Our strategic alliance with Fraunhofer
                                           FOKUS and the IMS Playground gives us the opportunity to be part of a
                                           one-of-a-kind IMS platform along with other leading technology and
                                           product vendors,” says Olaf Zäncker, CEO von VoIPFuture, talking about
                                           the importance of the partnership. “Working together we shall extend
                                           the range of NGN/IMS based services – for instance towards IPTV.”
