SteamWIDE to Feature SmartMS Technology

Value-added telephony service provider SteamWIDE has launched a new solution for operator-driven mobile messaging called SmartMS Technology.

SmartMS Technology features a carrier-grade SIP Application Server, a suite of white-label smartphone mobile messaging applications and Clearing House services, all of which are intended to help create effective communication between operators. Available mobile messaging services will include multimedia file transfers, map location sharing, push-to-talk service and a Short Message Service fallback mechanism that ensures the delivery of information.

The new solution will provide mobile operators with a cost-efficient method toward implementing IP-based messaging, a service that typically requires a large monetary investment in obtaining an IP-Multimedia Subsystem network and RCS-compliant equipment. SmartMS Technology is a step forward in replacing SMS/MMS with IP-based messaging.

“By bridging the best of both Operators and OTT (over-the-top) worlds, SmartMS technology preserves SMSC investments, helps Mobile Service Providers address the erosion of SMS market and provides them immediately with a key differentiating service that will easily integrate into any future RCS-e infrastructure,” Pascal Beglin, CEO of StreamWIDE, said in a statement.

Demonstrations of SmartMS Technology will be shown during the Mobile World Congress event Monday, Feb. 25 through Thursday, Feb. 28 in Barcelona, New Orlean's CCA Global Expo in April and Las Vegas' CTIA in May.

In related news, StreamWIDE recently signed a deal with General Communication Inc., an Alaska-based operator, to offer voicemail and visual voicemail services to its mobile subscribers. Additionally, StreamWide assisted French operator Bouygues Telecom in the launch of Bouygues' B. duo beta service last December through its My Social Line solution. StreamWide's My Social Line enabled Bouygues customers with the ability to make and receive calls from a second mobile number through one SIM card. They were also able to customize their additional phone line to only receive calls at certain times, with calls outside those times forwarded to voicemail.
