Comverse has announced that its latest communications applications, such as Converged Messaging and a centralised social address book, have been optimised for mobile internet devices based on the Intel Atom processor and Linux-based Moblin software platform. Comverse is demonstrating these applications at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, 16 –19 February (Hall 8, Stand 8B 83).
“Comverse’s personalised communication services take full advantage of the Intel Atom processor’s superb media processing and high-performance capabilities,” said Daphna Steinmetz, Chief Innovation Officer at Comverse, the world’s leading supplier of software and systems enabling value-added messaging and content services, converged billing and active customer management, and IP communications. “This successful synergy helps redefine the socialisation possibilities on a mobile device.”
With Comverse’s Converged Messaging, a single device and user interface can retrieve messages from various sources, including fixed-line messages (voicemail and videomail), mobile messages (MMS, SMS, voicemail and videomail) and ISPs (email messages).
“Comverse offers applications to telecom operators that embrace the web’s latest technologies and brings them to the mobile environment,” Steinmetz said. “This helps transform the internet into an opportunity for carriers to create more revenues.”
For instance, with the growth of social networking communities, some people may view their mobile device as a social life-support system, but how can users keep track of all their social contacts?
The solution is Comverse’s social address list, which organises all contacts and their multiple addresses into the phone’s address book. Comverse then enriches that information with geographical location, availability and other key facts.
“An enriched address book encourages mobile users to reach out more often with contacts in any social community,” Steinmetz said. “As a result, subscribers may make more phone calls or send more messages, all of which helps drive revenues for carriers.”
“Mobile internet devices are rapidly expected to become the personal information console for users having ready access to their address book and voicemails,” said Pankaj Kedia, director of global ecosystem programmes in Intel Corporation’s Ultra Mobility Group. “The performance and compatibility of Intel Atom processor-based mobile internet devices, combined with Comverse’s communication services running on a Linux-based Moblin software platform, is expected to deliver an outstanding internet and media experience to consumers wherever they go.”
