FORT MYERS, FL.—April 28, 2010—Interop Technologies, a provider of core solutions for messaging, device management, and connectivity gateways, today announced that it will provide Element Mobile with five wireless technology solutions: the world’s fastest SMS Center, massively scalable MMS Center, CDMA OTA (Over-the-Air) Provisioning, SCOPE™ Device Management with a “one-click fix,” and Common Short Code (CSC) Gateway.
Element Mobile, the business entity of Wisconsin RSA #7 Limited Partnership, is building a new network that will serve wireless customers in central Wisconsin. Interop Technologies will work with Element Mobile to deploy its solutions on site at Element Mobile’s headquarters, but Interop Technologies will operate and manage the solutions. Implementing modified hosted solutions will reduce the need for Element Mobile to invest in additional capital and resources and enable the company to rapidly launch new revenue-generating services.
“Element Mobile has a very forward-thinking deployment strategy,” said Fred Farrell, Vice President of Sales, North America, Interop Technologies. “When Element Mobile is ready to assume day-to-day responsibility for operation of the solutions, all related hardware and software already will be on site, enabling a smooth implementation.”
In a market dominated by national service providers, Element Mobile plans to offer customers the option of receiving highly reliable messaging solutions and top-notch services and support from a local provider. By leveraging the Interop Technologies SMSC 4 Series, MMSC, and CSC Gateway solutions, Element Mobile intends to provide localized content and services to attract and retain subscribers.
Jerry Wilke, COO Element Mobile, believes there are three crucial components of remarkable service: Great coverage, great local service, and Tier 1 carrier features. “With the help of Interop Technologies, we can deliver all three,” said Wilke.
Element Mobile’s decision to partner with Interop Technologies was based on the company’s product depth, device management roadmap, and the ability to support IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) architecture. In addition, the two companies share similar values centered on trust and honesty and intend to benefit from their combined knowledge and experience.
