Interop Technologies Receives "Mobile Messaging Innovation of the Year" Award for Basic RCS from Juniper Research

FORT MYERS, Fla. & DUBLIN — Jan. 24, 2024— Interop Technologies, a global leader in advanced mobile messaging technology, announced today that it has won Mobile Messaging Innovation of the Year for its Basic RCS solution in the 2024 Juniper Research Future Digital Awards. Hosted by Juniper Research, the annual awards recognize the very best vendors, products, platforms and services across telecommunications sectors, such as mobile roaming, messaging, and network security and anti-fraud.

Interop Technologies’ Basic RCS technology empowers mobile operators to integrate RCS capabilities into existing SMS frameworks without the necessity for immediate system overhaul. The process is streamlined: standard SMS protocols are employed to originate messages, which are then enhanced to RCS standards for devices that support this advanced messaging format. This enhancement includes refined branding elements and robust encryption features. For devices not RCS-compatible, the system satisfies message delivery via traditional SMS methods. This approach ensures a seamless transition for operators towards enriched RCS messaging functionalities, paving the way for a more comprehensive RCS Business Messaging integration in the future.

"Fundamental to Basic RCS is our unwavering commitment to broadening the adoption of operator-led RCS Business Messaging,” said Steve Zitnik, CTO and EVP at Interop Technologies. “We have seamlessly incorporated RCS features with conventional SMS ingress methods to encourage adoption of RBM, while ensuring a secure and tailored messaging experience. This award is a nod to our team's user-centric approach; ensuring that advanced technology is both accessible and beneficial to every operator."
