This manual is intended for network administrators who are responsible for implementing and maintaining authentication, authorization, and accounting (AAA) services in 3GPP IMS (3rd Generation Partnership Project IP Multimedia Subsystem) networks. It assumes familiarity with third-generation (3G) mobile communication systems, WLAN (Wireless Local Area Network) services, RADIUS and Diameter protocols and AAA functions.

The IMS AAA Server is a multi-protocol, AAA server that enables 2G/3G GSM/UMTS (Global System for Mobile communications/Universal Mobile Telecommunications System) mobile operators to support 3GPP WLAN services including UMA (Unlicensed Mobile Access), Femtocell and IMS based I-WLAN. The IMS AAA Server performs SIM-based (Subscriber Identity Module) authentication, subscription authorization, and accounting (AAA) in 3GPP WLAN Interworking environments where the primary subscriber database is a Home Subscriber Server (HSS).
