StreamWIDE Visual Voicemail Now in Compliance with Windows Phone
By Meenakshi Shankar
StreamWIDE (News - Alert), a company specializing in value-added telephony services, revealed that its carrier-grade Visual Voicemail platform is now fully compliant with Windows Phone handsets.
This compliance will now help mobile end-users retrieve voice messages and call-backs seamlessly from the application embedded with Windows Phone call log manager. The solution is already live and operational at a Tier 1 European mobile service provider.
"While competition focuses on being interoperable with Apple (News - Alert) devices and lets third-party application providers handle other mobile OS, StreamWIDE chose to invest on a larger array of devices, ensuring connectivity with manufacturers' apps as well as developing in-house native OS-based clients. StreamWIDE is the only VAS provider to encompass server and client sides of VVM into a consistent and solid end-to-end offering," Régis Rain, director, marketing and communications for StreamWIDE, said in a statement.
According to the company, this compliance achievement represents another step forward in the ambitious roadmap StreamWIDE has rolled-out in the VVM space over the last four years. After implementation of Apple IMAP interface for iPhone (News - Alert) in 2009, the software editor launched its own OMTP-based application for Android devices in 2010, proprietary app for iPad in 2011 and OMTP-based app for BlackBerry (News - Alert) in 2012.
From core network solutions to mobile and Web apps, StreamWIDE has been delivering on-premise or cloud-based, end-to-end, carrier-grade, IP-based VAS solutions in the areas of voice messaging, virtual numbers and telephony for social networks, convergent charging, conferencing, call center services, ringback tones and IVR. StreamWIDE's innovation in visual messaging applications include: caller-customized greetings, voicemail-to-text capabilities, Jellybean support to its Android (News - Alert) app, implementing device manufacturers' push notification systems as an alternative to SMS and lighter clients for low-end devices.
