Exploring cloud computing paradigm for Telecommunication Applications
For economical and simplification purpose Operators in the Telecom market are looking to move as much as possible of their infrastructure from traditional deployment to Cloud deployment. However Cloud deployment of IMS still need to be defined and developed. This project aims at bringing further the knowledge for such a deployment and helping guide future development for Ericsson. This project focuses on providing future directions for the development of an IP Multimedia System (IMS) in a Cloud environment. Sharing resources throughout the network in a Cloud environment has many advantages in terms of the cost, maintenance, reliability and scalability. Through this project software architectural options for the design of an IMS adapted to the cloud programming paradigm will be evaluated. Based on those findings an existing prototype solution will be expanded and deployed on industrial hardware in a customer like environment to evaluate its viability.
