Mar 08, 2013 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
TeleCommunication Systems Inc., or TCS, a provider of wireless communication solutions, has introduced cloud messaging service, which delivers short message service, or SMS, messages over 2G, 3G and LTE networks.
TCS' Cloud Messaging Service offers network interoperability with all core components. Because it is hosted in the Cloud, it allows carriers and enterprises to minimize capital expenditures on hardware and software, as well as to reduce operating costs associated with non-stop operation, the company said.
The Cloud Messaging Service sends SMS messages simultaneously over a variety of protocols, such as email, paging, website data and secure messaging with acknowledgement. Manufacturing, healthcare, public safety, educational institutions and other enterprises can utilize this messaging service to enhance situational awareness and real-time communications, the company added.
According to the company, the scalable and redundant platform supports Enhanced Messaging Service, prepaid SMS, premium messaging events (e.g., voting) and embedded promotions. The platform complies with law enforcement requirements, number pooling and wireless number portability.
Regardless if messages are P2P (Person-to-Person), P2A (Person-to-Application) or M2M (Machine-to-Machine), TCS offers inter-carrier support and easy integration with enterprise applications, the company reported.
Senior vice president of TCS' Commercial Software Group, Jay Whitehurst, said: "Leveraging TCS' extensive experience with comprehensive, end-to-end messaging solutions, our Cloud Messaging Platform offers a wide range of applications and functionalities that meet key business and budget requirements, while offering operators an opportunity to add value and increase average revenue per user. Serving as a proactive partner to our customers, TCS provides project management, reporting and around-the-clock monitoring to ensure the success of our customers' deployments."
