Wireless IMS Services: Push-to-Revenue
With the IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) architecture now being adopted across the telecom industry, equipment providers and wireless network operators are seeking end-user applications to drive the wider IMS business case; but attractive, differentiated, and revenue-generating services remain elusive.

This report seeks to identify which services are most in demand by cellular network operators and examines equipment supplier and application developer strategies to catalyze the emerging IMS services market.

Sample research data from the report is shown in the excerpts below:
