“We designed Comverse MMS Exchange as an industry-standard product, based on our field-proven, high capacity, flexible MMS architecture, for the use by any provider of MMS services,” says Amit Mattatia, General Manager of the MMS Division at Comverse. “It supports standard and non-standard MMS implementations, GSM to CDMA interconnection, MMS to i-mode interoperability, and can be easily customized to the specific requirements of the service provider and participating operators’ billing, monitoring and reporting.”
“Comverse is targeting an important aspect of the MMS market,” says John Delaney, Principal Analyst at Ovum. “Now that MMS handsets are widely available, users are expecting the same smooth service regardless of whether their message is sent within or outside of their operator’s network. This is the time when various international operators and managed service providers are actively looking for genuine infrastructure solutions that can quickly be deployed in order to provide MMS interconnect services to their affiliates.”
