IP multimedia subsystem services are creating new opportunities for network operators and end users

Due to IP multimedia subsystems, network operators can expand the portfolio of their services such as multimedia communication and integrated voice services. This aids in the collaboration of multiple media, multiple points of access and multiple modes of communication into a single network due to which a large number of network operators are adopting IP multimedia subsystem services.

IP multimedia subsystem services also include a feature to add, modify or delete a session in the existing multimedia call and help end users have a personalised experience for voice, data and multimedia sessions. IP multimedia subsystem services help users to choose the most suitable medium of communication in real time, and allow them to control when and how they want to communicate.

Security threats acting as a restraint in the global IP multimedia subsystem market

When any system is connected to the internet, it increases the possibility of cyber-attacks and easy data hacking, which is a risk that is not associated with internal security systems. Due to this, enterprises are not eager to use internet based IP multimedia subsystem services so as to not expose their applications to the internet. Authentication into these services needs to ensure appropriate levels of protection with strong multifactor security options.

Many service providers are providing IP multimedia subsystem services without strong security services due to which cyber criminals can access such internet-based services easily and can also hack the confidential or personal information of users. This acts as a restraint to the IP multimedia subsystem market growth.
