Ericsson is developing its cloud-based IMS system in its Budapest headquarters - VIDEO REPORT

ericssonEricsson Hungary supplying telecommunications and IT systems and also engaged in research and development, will develop the next generation of the cloud-based IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) in the framework of an almost EUR 8.4 million R&D project, which will be the cornerstone of cutting-edge telecommunications systems. The investment to be realized by September 2022 will create 200 new jobs requiring higher education.

The Swedish Ericsson established a software development centre in Hungary in 1991, which was integrated into a single organization with the research laboratory founded in 1996, thus creating the research and development division. One of the most significant results was when Ericsson Hungary and Hungarian Telekom introduced the first 5G network in Hungary in 2017 and the Swedish company also installed 5G mobile technology on the automotive test track in Zalaegerszeg.

In Ericsson's new R&D project, it will develop the next generation of IMS for cloud-based IP Multimedia Subsystems in its Budapest headquarters, which will be the cornerstone of cutting-edge telecommunications systems. IMS controls and facilitates modern voice, video and conference calls and messaging in IP-based packet-switched communications networks.
