IMS Insider Info

I continue to follow the ramblings of the global IMS conversation, and the IMS Insider does an outstanding job of documenting, conversing and "talking out loud" about the good, the bad, the curious and the troublesome questions of IMS.  In fact, they are thinking about the same things I think about, when thinking about IMS.
  • How in the world are carriers going to get interoperability?
  • Is there a compelling event to pull customers to IMS services, especially when the majority of the services being considered are already available for free?
  • What happens to local number portability? DO we all just end up getting an IP V.6 address?
  • What happens when Net Neutrality and IMS collide?
Read on, it's a good conversation...

IMS Insider
MS strategies today fail to justify how value-add is being created from the IMS infrastructure when people can already talk on Skype for free -- and most of the QoS problems on Skype are really either internal to the PC (e.g. contention for CPU or network access) or local to the customer premises (first-hop to WiFi access point).- Many of the IMS functions when decomposed are replicated for free on today's Internet (e.g. basic dyndns.org dynamic DNS routing -- eg. I can make a SIP call that will reach me wherever I am -- the "home agent" function is very cheap/free).
