At the Next Generation Networks 2005 conference here this week, several sessions discussed the implications of IMS on current and future networks, including its ability to serve as the foundation of the next-generation public IP infrastructure -- a role now served by the Internet. All sessions, however, quickly evolved into debates on the merits, implications and intentions behind IMS." (read the whole article at Network World).
