"This platform enables us to now offer operators a cost-effective approach to their IMS deployments around the world by delivering an intriguing new, interactive messaging experience to their customers."

Enhanced and Distributed Network Architecture

Implicity is an enhanced IP messaging platform that supports many network architecture designs, including those used by wireless and broadband subscribers. This SIP-based system provides carrier-class system reliability on agnostic, non-proprietary technology, and it does not require any complex, underlying specialized hardware - making it easy to customize.

Scalable and Flexible Platform

UTStarcom's Implicity platform maintains the bandwidth parameters to handle millions of subscribers at entry-level cost performance, and it has the capability of supporting a Centrex/wholesale model. This new IP platform also supports an intuitive service creation environment that houses an emergency notification application, location-based services and additional products.

With UTStarcom's Implicity, carriers can provide converged, rich revenue-generating services, including video e-mail, instant messaging, standard e-mail, voicemail and conferencing through an IMS-enabling architecture.
