IMS (IP multimedia subsystem) is a main trend of development NGN. The base of IMS is an Internet Protocol which initially did not provide support for quality of service. However, for the transmission of multimedia streams is necessary to ensure a given level of quality of service (QoS). Therefore, IMS QoS estimation is a necessary task but a high complexity of network topologies and a large number of information flows makes it difficult to solve this problem. In IMS network, QoS support is provided by the interaction of systems of IMS on control and application planes. This interaction based on the signalling message exchange that also has delay. This paper presents the results to create a nodal tensor model of IMS network for delay analysis. In this model, the main systems of the IMS network such as CSCF (Call Session Control Function), HSS (Home Subscriber Server) etc. are represented as a single-server queuing systems. Model is formed in accordance to the postulates of the tensor analysis of networks. Moreover, proposed model allow estimating the delay time as for the individual routes, and for the whole network. Research of the model allowed determining such distribution of traffic that resulted to the minimum value of the delay that in turn leads to increased QoS of information flows in an IMS network.
