After an exhausting and exciting week at Mobile World Congress (MWC), the stage has been set for high profile RCS rollouts this year. The news has surfaced that the big four US operators have declared 2015 to be the year that they roll out RCS. This has us in the RCS camp optimistic that our efforts have primed the market for all operators to follow suit in response to this increased pressure.
As operators and technology continue to march towards All-IP networks and services, RCS is assured to be at the heart of the new subscriber experience. Interop Technologies will be exhibiting at the 7th annual Rich Communications Conference in Berlin, October 28-29th, to discuss our patented IMS-less cloud RCS solution with fully integrated legacy interworking. Our experts will also be sharing information on Interop’s Protocol Interworking and Secure RCS solutions.
We're pleased to announce that Interop Technologies has been accredited by the GSMA as a Hosted RCS Solution Provider. This designation means that our RCS solution fully complies with RCS specification v1.2.2, which we demonstrated by passing a series of rigorous tests.
Sprint revealed its response to the growing OTT threat this week by launching its new RCS-based application, Messaging Plus. The downloadable app, which will be pre-loaded on Android devices going forward, lets subscribers communicate through text, instant messaging, group messaging, and video chat.
