Clearwater IMS Components
Clearwater consists of a number of IMS components:
- A basic HSS
- An IR.92 Application Server
- An XDMS to support this application server
- Self service provisioning portal
- WebRTC – IMS SIP gateway
The Clearwater team are currently focusing their efforts on the Clearwater IMS Core pieces – the I-CSCF, S-CSCF and BGCF – with the aim of making these suitable for deployment to support live IMS deployments – such as in VoLTE networks.
The remainder of the pieces are provided to show-case the Clearwater IMS core capabilities, but it is expected that in live deployments external IMS components will be used to provide functionality such as P-CSCF, HSS, MMTel TAS.
An explanation of how these IMS components are implemented within Clearwater is available on the architecture page.
