Acision Joins the GSMA's Rich Communication Suite Initiative

CTIA - LAS VEGAS, April 1  /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ -

    Acision, the world's leading messaging company, today

announced that it has joined the GSMA's Rich Communication Suite (RCS)

Initiative. As part of the RCS Initiative, Acision, along with 60 other

member organisations, will be at the forefront of developing rich

communication technology and services, which run across IP and

multimedia-based networks, such as enhanced messaging, presence enabled

contact management and in-call multimedia sharing.

    The GSMA RCS Initiative was formed in 2007 by leading industry

players in a collaborative effort to facilitate and accelerate the adoption

of applications and services that interoperate and provide enriched

communication. By combining the joint experiences of the major network

operators, handset vendors, messaging infrastructure leaders and PC client

specialists, the GSMA RCS Initiative will drive the roll-out of the first

truly converged communication platform, which leverages the ubiquity, ease of

use, standardisation and chargeability which made SMS a success.

    Acision's expertise in delivering advanced messaging services

to operators globally, as well as its sophisticated product portfolio of

end-to-end IP-based messaging and communications solutions, means it is well

positioned to help drive technical development of RCS services. Today,

Acision is already prepared for the future of enriched communication with its

own converged next-generation messaging architecture which enables operators

to migrate their current messaging services to future emerging technologies

with minimal interruptions.

    Louis Corrigan, CTO at Acision, said: "By being part of the

GSMA RCS Initiative we can provide valuable insight into the advancement of

the converged communications environment and quickly realize our long-term

vision of a single platform that incorporates all messaging and

communications services. Acision's aim is to help ensure that RCS is a

success that will enhance the end user's communication experience, see mass

adoption and boost operator revenues. For us, this initiative will provide

the next major step in the messaging revolution and will enable us broaden

our scope as the leader in next-generation messaging."

    Acision's end-to-end messaging solutions run across all

network types, bridging the gap between 2G, 3G and 4G networks, including

IMS, HSPA, LTE and WiMAX environments. This supports the increased usage in

services such as mobile broadband and enables operators to increase Average

Profit Per Megabyte (APPM) while reducing backhaul pressures. Acision's

experience in messaging and charging will enable it, alongside other RCS

Initiative members, to help accelerate the time to market of RCS and ensure

service providers can launch reliable and commercial RCS services. Acision

has already performed over 100 successful commercial deployments of its IP

messaging solution globally across all networks types.


    Acision is the world's leading messaging company, providing communication

solutions for over 300 network operators and service providers globally.
