Carriers assess IMS progress

Today's newsletter is coming out to you from Washington, D.C., where FierceMarkets is hosting its second IMS Executive Summit, co-chaired by your's truly and FierceWireless editor-in-chief Sue Marek.

We're pleased to say that carriers came ready to discuss IMS in detail, as Stuart Elby, vice president of network architecture at Verizon delivered an opening keynote that delved deeply into Verizon's perspective on IMS architecture and requirements. Later, attendees heard application stories from AT&T and Sprint. Mark Kaish, vice president of voice development and support at Cox Communications, closed out the day with stories of IMS applications development and lessons learned from a recent technical trial by Cox.
