Mavenir™ Selected by MTS for Advanced Multimedia Services Based on RCS
RICHARDSON, Texas --(Business Wire)--
Systems (NYSE: MVNR), a leading provider of software-based
networking solutions, today announced that it will provide Rich
Communication Services (RCS) and WebRTC services to Mobile Telesystems
(MOEX: MTSS), the leading provider of telecommunication services in
Russia and the CIS.
Mavenir's RCS solution, based on its Rich Messaging Server (RMS),
enables advanced multimedia services such as instant messaging, file
transfer, voice calling and video conferencing through a single
application installed on the phone. Mavenir is also providing its WebRTC
Gateway (News - Alert), based on the Unified Access Gateway (UAG), to enable delivery
of RCS services to the web and introduce new unified communication
services for the corporate segment.
"We are pleased to be working with a leading operator such as MTS (News - Alert) to
create innovative RCS services and to rapidly bring those services to
the major markets of Moscowand St. Petersburg this year," said Pardeep
Kohli, President and CEO of Mavenir Systems (News - Alert).
MTS sees tremendous growth potential for RCS services. OTT usage amongst
MTS's 75 million subscribers in Russia is relatively low, so bundling
compelling new multimedia services has the potential to attract a large
number of new users.
"In the first stage, we plan to sell RCS services for 10-20 Rubles per
month. We will try to attract customers by offering them a universal
communication tool with a guaranteed quality," said Maksim Marasanov,
Director of Products and Services Development Department, MTS. "We are
aware that the RCS will affect the income from SMS and our task is to
replace these losses and increase revenues, which we expect that this
will be done within two years of service launch."
