Architecture for Service Delivery in a Network Environment Including IMS

  Giyeong Son, Allan Lewis, and Bruno R. Preiss, January 2009. Patent Application[88].

In one embodiment, a network architecture is described for facilitating delivery of data items over a communications network to a mobile communications device. A remote services server disposed in an enterprise network is operable for detecting a data item at a computer system and for processing the data item into processed information that includes address information relating to the mobile communications device. A service gateway disposed in an Internet Protocol (IP) Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) network is operably connected to the remote services server for receiving the processed information using a first protocol, wherein the service gateway includes functionality to transmit the processed information using a second protocol over the IMS network based on routing information obtained from an IMS-aware node.
