IMS (IP Multimedia Subsystem)

IMS is an architectural framework, defined by 3GPP, which is designed to support a managed network for the delivery of IP multimedia services in a fixed-mobile convergence (FMC) environment. A range of protocols are used, predominantly SIP and Diameter.

The IP Multimedia Subsystem consists of layers, typically an Application Layer, IMS Layer and Access Layer.
