Messaging as a Service
Legacy Messaging Consolidation
As operators work to transition their new network with technologies like NFV, SDN, and service virtualization, legacy network components may be overlooked until they’re close to end-of-life. By then it’s either too late, or it has become a mission-critical replacement initiative that ties up precious resources and capital needed for a remedy. Unexpected legacy replacement can halt the progression of innovative ideas, new service launches and future network planning. This is due to the sheer number of interrelated systems that are all too often physically unrelated in their network—mainly gateways, routers and numerous OSS/BSS integration points.
Operators can lighten the burden of managing, maintaining, or replacing outdated “black box” infrastructure by consolidating it all into a simplified managed solution.
How MaaS Works
Our MaaS offering is a virtualized messaging solution that concurrently supports both legacy SS7 and the latest IP-based technologies. It combines the past, present and future of operator messaging into a single, all-generation, managed platform, that is delivered to operators as a service to reduce ongoing management costs and resource strains. This benefits operators by reducing the obstacles associated with maintaining legacy SMS/MMS messaging infrastructure, while also enabling seamless integration with RCS and other advanced services over IP/IMS.
