Keywords:IBM  Nortel Networks  BladeCenter  VoIP  IMS suite 

IBM Corp. and Nortel Networks Inc. are expanding an existing joint development pact on IP multi-media subsystems to cover new software integration and new facilities to carry out joint interoperability testing.

The IMS collaboration is centred on IBM's BladeCentre hardware architecture.

IBM has agreed to integrate Nortel VoIP and Fixed Mobile Convergence software into its IMS suite, while Nortel will be using IBM's WebSphere Presence and Group List Enabler in its IMS portfolio. Both companies will offer pre-integrated product suites to carriers.

To speed interoperability testing and joint development projects, the partners will open a new IMS centre at Nortel's campus in Richardson, Texas in the United States. They also will expand collaboration at IBM's Telecom Solutions Innovation Centre in Montpelier, France.
