Operator Trials Confirm IPm as Practical Solution to Introduce New
Services and Reduce Network Costs While Protecting and Enhancing
Successful Messaging Networks
BARCELONA, Spain, Feb. 16 /CNW/ - Airwide Solutions (http://www.airwidesolutions.com/), the leading provider of next-generation mobile messaging and security
solutions, has announced the successful trials and planned launch of
IPm, Airwide's IP messaging solution. IPm has been developed and
trialled collaboratively with several of the world's leading mobile
operators to provide a practical means to introduce support for SIP
(Session Initiation Protocol) and XMPP (Extensible Messaging and
Presence Protocol)-based messaging services in both dedicated or cloud
deployments. Full commercial availability is planned for Q4 of this
As LTE (Long Term Evolution) is now achieving significant levels of
deployment and a growing number of devices are being LTE enabled,
mobile operators now have to make strategic decisions about how to
offer seamless services across current and future network environments
without disrupting established and finely tuned messaging services.
With its unique combination of expertise and technology, Airwide has
long been recognized as the leading partner of mobile operators to
deploy network enhancements that enable cost control while protecting
the operator's investment in highly successful messaging networks. In
addition to protecting the financial investments that operators have
made, Airwide's IPm helps operators to protect messaging revenues that
are expected to exceed $190 billion this year and also to protect the
highly developed relationship they have with their subscribers. IPm
helps operators to realize the cost reduction and service enhancement
potential of IP.
Unlike alternative solutions that are based solely on a single standard,
IPm recognizes the flexibility that operators require to make
investments today without knowing which standards or specifications
will emerge in the future, by providing a standards-agnostic approach.
This flexibility is further extended by enabling IPm functionality to
be deployed with dedicated infrastructure or in a cloud configuration.
The IPm solution incorporates critical functionality, including
business logic, connectivity components, application server and storage
elements in a unique, scalable and highly flexible solution.
Additionally, the IPm solution incorporates innovative messaging
security functionality including content filtering, address validation
and user control to fully enable operators to protect their networks
and subscribers from rapidly increasing mobile malware threats.
Airwide delivers this functionality using its comprehensive portfolio
developed through nearly two decades working with mobile operators, as
well as incorporating multi-vendor functionality to meet customer
"Working with some of the world's leading and most forward looking
operators on the development and trials of IPm produced key learnings
that have been incorporated into this solution" stated Airwide's SVP of
Solutions and Product Management, Adrian Kelly. "It is clear that there
is not one standard that operators can plan to and therefore there is a
tremendous need for flexibility. It is critically important that the
seamless and universal user experience that has made mobile messaging
one of the most successful, ubiquitous and compelling services be
preserved as operators introduce IP capabilities."
