No-cost evaluation lets operators assess
Interop RCS solution without network integration
FORT MYERS, Fla.—Aug. 7, 2012—Interop Technologies, a provider of core wireless solutions for advanced messaging, over-the-air handset management, and connectivity gateways, today announced the availability of its Load-N-Go℠ Rich Communication Suite(RCS) program, which enables wireless network operators to evaluate RCS internally on their own devices. RCS, branded joyn™ by the GSM Association, is an advanced wireless communication service that helps operators retain revenue by mitigating subscriber use of “over-the-top” services offered by third-party providers.
The no-cost Load-N-Go initiative utilizes the Interop Technologies hosted RCS Messaging Server, a fully compliant RCS solution that can be implemented with or without an IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) core. After downloading an Interop-provided RCS client onto device models that Interop has approved for the program, participating operators can experiment with RCS on their own handsets during a 30-day evaluation period. Operators can use Load-N-Go on any data network, including 3G or LTE. Available features include one-to-one and group chat, file transfer, and image and video sharing during communication sessions.
“With Interop’s Load-N-Go demonstration program, operators have the unique opportunity to experience RCS today, on their own devices and with their existing data network, without any commitment,” said Steve Zitnik, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer, Interop Technologies. “Load-N-Go gives operators a fast, no-risk way to familiarize themselves with the features and benefits of RCS, the chosen industry solution for combating use of ‘over-the-top’ messaging services.”
