Frost & Sullivan chose Comverse as the recipient of its 2006 Technology Leadership Award for its ability to continuously adapt to the growing demands of the dynamic telecom market as demonstrated by its Converged Messaging solution. Comverse Converged Messaging enables seamless interworking across various messaging services, networks and terminals so that users enjoy a simple and intuitive experience for all their messaging needs.
The Converged Messaging solution ensures that messages are delivered by the optimal delivery method in accordance with recipients’ device and network capabilities, presence status, and pre-defined preferences – increasing message completion. The standards-based solution is IMS-compliant, ensuring future-proof migration to next-generation IMS networks.
“Comverse Converged Messaging offers operators a valuable opportunity to provide subscribers with an enhanced user experience, drive increased usage of messaging services, build new revenue streams and increase subscriber loyalty,” states Frost & Sullivan Senior Research Analyst, Luke Thomas. “We expect that Comverse Converged Messaging will help drive the global uptake of converged communication and next-generation messaging applications in the near future.”
Comverse’s evolutionary approach enables operators to leverage their existing messaging infrastructure investment while providing a bridge to IMS messaging. This is a major advantage over competitor services that use a client-oriented approach with a poor or no back-end solution, or that only target IMS networks.
Converged Messaging can be implemented as a stand-alone solution or as part of the Comverse InSight(TM) Open Services Environment.
“Comverse has established itself as a one-stop shop for operators, providing a broad range of enhanced communication and billing solutions. It has been able to maintain its leadership in its markets by continually providing innovative solutions that adapt to the growing demands of the dynamic telecom market,” added Thomas.
