As telecom companies manage the convergence of traditional, mobile, wireless, voice and multimedia communications, a new generation of popular, sophisticated, high-growth applications have appeared, e.g. Voice over IP, Push to Talk, Content sharing, Video sharing, Messaging, and Presence management. At the heart of Alcatel-Lucent's converged IMS infrastructure is their new XDMS system, providing the contact and presence management configuration functionalities.
