An IMS-ready, next-generation network based on Nortel Networks Corp. technology will be deployed by Itissalat Al Maghrib (IAM), a telecommunications provider in Morocco, in the cities of Rabat and Casablanca. The network will allow IAM to offer businesses and consumers multimedia services like VoIP, mobile VoIP, video telephony, file exchange and integrated voicemail and messaging. "Nortel's next-generation network technology enables IAM to develop an evolutionary path to IMS-based services that will encourage new revenue streams and provide businesses with seamlessly integrated voice, video, collaboration and presence capabilities," said Michel Clement, president of Southern Europe and Africa for Nortel. The network integrates the Nortel Communication Server 2000 softswitch, the Nortel Media Gateway 15000 carrier-grade and IAM's existing digital switched telephone network.
