BroadWorks is a leading application server platform as defined in the IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) architecture. BroadWorks became the first IMS compliant platform in March of 2005 and is currently in more IMS networks worldwide than any other application server. In 2008 and 2009 Technology Marketing Corporation's (TMC) IMS Magazine named the BroadWorks VoIP applications platform the recipient of the second annual IMS Leadership Award. This showcases the company's leadership in IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS).
IMS is an end-to-end network solution allowing advanced multimedia services and content to be delivered over IP broadband networks. By using a single standard to integrate the complete IP multimedia subsystem, IMS enables network operators and service providers to design, develop, and deploy new revenue-generating multimedia services to their subscribers quickly and cost-effectively. Examples of service creation with IMS include VoIP-Web 2.0 mash-ups that enhance popular business and consumer applications such as customer-relationship management (CRM) and social networking Web sites. It also makes it easy to access content and contacts, multimedia and voice from wireline and wireless devices.
BroadWorks applications function independent of the underlying network - extending the service reach and simplifying operations.
Third party applications, such as presence, can be more easily integrated with BroadWorks' rich feature set - offering powerful, new, differentiated services.
BroadWorks functionally is deployed across multiple servers to optimize performance, enhance redundancy, and meet IMS specifications.
BroadWorks provides a seamless transition to IMS for carriers with Class 5, softswitch, PacketCable™, or hybrid networks. The BroadWorks software platform supports these architectures along with IMS and delivers a rich set of call control and enhanced voice features.
