Acision announces seamless RCS-e broadband messaging
Acision has announced the availability of its complete Rich Communication Suite-enhanced (RCS-e) implementation on its latest version of Acision Broadband Messaging Service Centre (BMSC). As a single integrated IP communications solution, the Acision BMSC builds on the company’s expertise in SMS and IP messaging and enables mobile operators to differentiate through rich, IP based messaging services which provide seamless interaction across messaging platforms and existing global mobile and internet communities. Acision has also contracted a commercial deployment of its RCS-e solution with a major mobile operator, serving over 50 million subscribers. Acision’s end-to-end RCS-e solution includes a basic IMS core, RCS-e application server and RCS-e clients, and provides seamless messaging through interconnect of RCS-e with the global SMS community and social network chat services such as Facebook Messenger and Google Talk. The solution will enable operators to support the core services of the RCS-e initiative, iincluding instant messaging, group chat, file transfer and video sharing, as well as a store and forward functionality in the event that the destination device is off-line. It extends the existing SMS user experience to RCS-e, while reducing CAPEX requirements by re-using existing messaging investments and monetising these assets.
