The Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS) today announced four new members. Juniper Networks has joined as a full member, while Atos, Encompass Digital Media, and sonoVTS have signed on as associate members.
Juniper Networks believes that the media industry shift to IP technology will have a profound positive impact on the quality of the viewer experience, as well as the agility and innovation of media suppliers. Juniper partners and co-innovates with customers to deliver open, automated, scalable, and secure high-performance networks, empowering customers to unlock new business models and capitalize on new growth opportunities.

"The more companies we have working together toward a single standards-based approach to IP transmission, the better," said Michael Cronk, AIMS board chair. "That's why we're so pleased to welcome Juniper Networks, Atos, Encompass, and sonoVTS. We are particularly pleased this month to welcome four companies representing entirely different segments of our industry: an IP networking company, an IT services company, a broadcast services provider, and a systems design and rental company. This illustrates the broad appeal and acceptance of AIMS' approach."
