According to: Verizon will deploy a Femtocell LTE trial by year end, “We expect that LTE will actually be in service somewhere here in the U.S. probably this time next year,” said Dick Lynch, executive vice president and chief technology officer of Verizon Communications “Dick Lynch CLEAR – Xohm – ClearWire: VoIP over WiMAX Light Reading - VOIP - Clearwire Breaks Into VOIP Market - Telecom... Jan 22, Using Nortel servers, Clearwire is now offering VOIP services over its own network infrastructure.

Make-Before-Break is optional QoS metrics are granular. SLA, Quality of Experience metrics at the end-2-end App-level needed Inter-ASN roaming needs definition What about roaming across Carrier-managed Spectrum and Enterprise-managed Unlicensed Spectrum ? Devices ? Now Nortel, ALU have slowed R&D Coverage / Capacity / etc.

IMS supports the VCC supporting seamless handoffs across access methods such as WiFi, 2G, 3G, and fixed access.  with likely sporadic LTE deployments, the IMS VCC supporting seamless handoffs to WiFi, 2G, and 3G radio access networks is likely required

9 Entire contents © 2009 Gartner, Inc. All rights reserved. | Page 9 Newer Opportunities for LTE and IMS LTE has functions such as: LTE has defined the Serving Gateway (S-GW) and the PDN Gateway (P- GW). The S-GW and P-GW are core network functions for the LTE Radio Access Network based access. They both act as the Policy Enforcement Points (PEP) for dynamic QoS and policies. IMS supports a Policy Decision Function (PDF) which can be within the CSCF that manages the QoS over the media plane, whereby IMS supports the Common Open Policy Service (COPS) protocol for policy control over Quality of Service (QoS) signaling protocols. LTE supports both the S-GW and P-GW having Diameter interfaces to control the Policy and Charging Enforcement Function (PCEF) within the S-GW and P-GW functions. IMS supports the Diameter interface as well.

All rights reserved. | Page 10 Newer Opportunities for LTE/WiMAX and IMS LTE/WiMAX will require regulatory features such as Legal Intercept and Emergency Services for multimedia in both the wireless and wireline space, along with Mobile IP solutions (Foreign Agent and Home Agent) LTE/WiMAX will require carrier hosted solutions that promise future convergence with VoIP, IPTV, with Presence and Location-based services, which IMS: IP Multimedia Subsystems coupled with applications servers can provide. Additionally LTE/WiMAX will require the following which are provided by IMS applications servers: ENUM User authentication Peer-to-peer video sharing Voice call continuityVoice call continuity to alternate access methods Push to talk Rich Communication Suite

What’s right and wrong about each approach? -What are the requirements for secure and interoperable wireless services? Does IMS deliver all that's necessary? What additional issues must be considered for FMC and blended wireless-wireline access networks? -What are the optimal technology choices relative to product availability, cost, functionality and scalability in terms of performance and capacity?
