The interest in the adoption of the IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) by industry and research institutes has resulted in the establishment of IMS testbeds for developing and deploying IMS services. The client applications used for testing and consuming services within these testbeds are important for the overall success of the developed services. Currently, there is no single free client that provides researchers with all the required functionality needed to test their applications. For example, several open and closed source IMS clients are used within the Rhodes University Convergence Research Group (RUCRG) in order to utilise specific features to test developed applications.
