CHICAGO, Nov. 4, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Infinite Convergence Solutions, a next-generation wireless messaging and mobility solutions provider for carriers and enterprises, today announces that its Rich Communications Suite (RCS) Solution has received accreditation from the GSM Association (GSMA). The certification reinforces Infinite Convergence's commitment to industry standardization, world-class mobile messaging solutions and seamless interoperability between mobile operators.
According to Portio Research, Over-the-Top applications (OTTs) are projected to double SMS messaging by 2016, taking valuable average-revenue-per-user (ARPU) from mobile operators. Infinite Convergence's RCS provides a solution for mobile operators to regain revenue share and customer base through TELCO-grade enhanced messaging services, including one-to-one chat, group chat, inter-carrier chat, multimedia messaging and video sharing, among others. By combining next-generation technology and Infinite Convergence's leading mobile messaging expertise, RCS enables mobile operators to deploy enhanced messaging services that are compelling to end-users. Infinite Convergence's RCS solution offers a range of deployment options for mobile operators, including in both IMS and non-IMS networks, 3G, 4G, LTE, Cloud and over WiFi.
"We're extremely proud that the GSMA has recognized Infinite Convergence and our Rich Communications Suite as a hosted solution provider that is compliant with its stringent standards," said Anurag Lal, CEO of Infinite Convergence. "A consistent set of standards across mobile operators is a necessity in order to keep the telecom industry moving forward, and rich-media communications combined with interoperability is a major differentiator for mobile operators."
Founded in 1982, the GSMA is widely recognized for its work representing the interests of the global mobile communications industry, including mobile operators, manufacturers and developers. In order to receive GSMA accreditation, Rich Communication Services must undergo a thorough verification process that tests the RCS solution in hundreds of various interoperability scenarios and supplies detailed evidence to verify the solution performs in accordance with GSMA standards. Mobile operators looking to deploy Rich Communication Services are ensured that all GSMA-certified solutions, including Infinite Convergence's RCS, are compliant with the standards, interoperate between RCS clients and mobile operators from launch date and shorten go-to-market time.
