Interop Technologies RCS Solution Fully Complies with GSMA Joyn Blackbird Release
FORT MYERS, Fla. --(Business Wire)--
Technologies, a provider of core wireless solutions for advanced
messaging, over-the-air handset management, and connectivity gateways,
today announced that its cloud Rich
Communication Services (RCS) solution is fully compliant with the
joyn Blackbird release from the GSM Association. This release includes a
number of priority RCS version 5.1 features that enable operators to
compete with popular over-the-top (OTT) services.
The Interop (News - Alert) RCS solution provides operators with the ability to compete
directly with national providers as they introduce RCS-based services.
Media reports indicate that AT&T and Sprint (News - Alert) are preparing RCS launches.
The Interop cloud-based
technology can be implmented quickly-without the up-front
investment required for an in-network solution.
The Interop Technologies website features a new video
highlighting joyn Blackbird features. The Blackbird release enables
users to conduct IP-based video sessions and voice calls and to share
images, video, contacts, and location information during one-to-one and
group chats. In addition, users can share images and videos during voice
calls. A converged inbox for SMS, MMS, and joyn messages enables users
to access all conversations from a single messaging application.
The Blackbird release also includes "store and forward" capabilities for
chat messages and file transfers. As a result, joyn queues messages and
files sent to offline contacts and forwards them as soon as the contacts
have signed in. In addition, Blackbird includes multi-device support,
enabling users to access joyn from several devices sharing the same
user's identity, such as a mobile phone, tablet, and laptop.
"It is critical for operators to introduce RCS to remain competitive
with national players," said Steve Zitnik, Executive Vice President and
Chief Technology Officer, Interop Technologies. "With our cloud-based
technology, operators can launch this service quickly and cost
effectively without making expensive changes to their current network."
Interop Technologies representatives will be at Interop booth #229 at
the Competitive Carriers Association tradeshow Sept. 15-18 in Las Vegas.
