Project Clearwater is an open-source IMS core initiative designed for the cloud and now available to the worldwide community of industry software developers and systems integrators. We continue to drive the evolution of this codebase in line with standard open-source procedures to meet the requirements of today’s most innovative service providers.
Traditional paths to IMS have been expensive and exceedingly vendor-centric. Project Clearwater addresses this challenge by laying the foundation for delivering critical call and session control functions, along with Telephony Application Server (TAS) capabilities, within any virtualized data center. Clearwater’s innovative design offers massive scale and “telco-grade” reliability in private or public Cloud environments, together with exceptionally low running costs of around 2 cents per subscriber per year based on Amazon AWS pricing.
