Provisioning of Neusoft joyn™-accredited RCS clients via Mformation’s advanced MDM server helps accelerate adoption of RCS services
Edison, New Jersey, USA and Tampere, Finland – February 25, 2013 - Mformation® Software Technologies Inc. and Neusoft Mobile Solutions OY today announced the successful completion of interoperability testing (IOT) of a wide range of RCS-e services using Neusoft’s joyn™-accredited RCS client with Mformation’s advanced mobile device management (MDM) server.
RCS (Rich Communication Suite) services marketed under the joyn brand provide a discrete set of IP-based services to mobile subscribers that go beyond voice and SMS to include instant messaging/chat, live video sharing and file transfer across any device, on any network, with anyone in their mobile address book. These services provide a stepping-stone to the full IP-based video and messaging infrastructure that full implementation of RCS will bring to market. Cross-network and device interoperability is a critical aspect of this infrastructure and is ensured by a rigorous certification program provided by the GSMA.
“Neusoft works with leading vendors to ensure end-to-end service functionality for our multinational customers,” said Jukka Marjomaa, Sales Director, Neusoft. “By successfully completing interoperability testing between Mformation’s advanced MDM server and our joyn-accredited RCS clients, we are enabling our MNO customers to confidently launch new joyn services and offer their subscribers the best possible experience.”
“Mformation and Neusoft have partnered to ensure that RCS-e services such as one-to-one and one-to-many instant messaging (IM), and picture, video and file sharing can be easily and transparently provisioned on Neusoft’s joyn-accredited RCS client on any device, over any network,” said Rakesh Kushwaha, Mformation founder and CTO. “As with other new mobile services, the key to driving up adoption of RCS services is to make the experience of enabling the services completely transparent to subscribers. Ensuring seamless provisioning of RCS services on mobile devices over any network, whether cellular or wireless LAN, is critical to ensuring that these services work optimally out of the box and continue to work throughout the lifecycle of the device.”
The interoperability testing of Neusoft’s RCS client with Mformation’s advanced MDM server was conducted in Mformation’s IOT laboratories in Bangalore & New Jersey. Mformation’s MDM server seamlessly configured Neusoft’s RCS-e client over-the-air using HTTPS protocol, enabling it to activate RCS-e services. These services can include instant messaging (IM), file transfer, image sharing and video sharing.
