NMS Presents 3G-324M Wireless Video Services Protocols at IMTC Forum

5/19/2004 - Andrea Basso, System Architect at NMS Communications, will discuss the 3G-324M for wireless video messaging and streaming services, and the implications for the design of applications that run such services, at the upcoming International Multimedia Telecommunications Consortium (IMTC) Forum being held in San Jose, CA May 18 - 20. The IMTC is comprised of companies dedicated to the advancement of real-time rich media communications. The Forum is a periodic event focused on networking, technology updates and collaboration.

3G-324M is an umbrella standard for wireless video communications that was created to satisfy the stringent requirements of real-time, low-delay interactive conversational video services. Nevertheless it is, in practice, employed to enable a variety of multimedia services beyond conversational services such as messaging and streaming.

The unification of this variety of services under the same umbrella protocol has significance for the design of the supporting architectures and associated media and signaling components, as well as for the design of the applications that run such services. The talk will discuss the technical and market considerations surrounding the deployment of wireless video and messaging applications and identify optimal approaches for different circumstances.
