Telsis IP SMS Gateway provides convergence between 3G and LTE messaging Network solution supplier Telsis announces its IP SMS Gateway for LTE networks, a converged messaging platform that allows users of current-generation handsets to seamlessly communicate with users that are using next-generation LTE equipment.
Either operating alongside existing SMSC infrastructure, or replacing end-of-life equipment, the Telsis IP SMS Gateway provides convergence between SMS and LTE messaging. In addition to acting purely as an IP-SM-GW, the Telsis platform also provides a platform for customer driven messaging services, such as tablet messaging, cloud archival, parental control, and driver safety. The IP SMS Gateway also offers the security essential to protect handsets and users from messaging threats, such as fraudulent, malicious and spam messages and malware.
By providing a consistent service to all users, the Telsis SMS Gateway helps operators fight back against the threat of Over-the-Top (OTT) services which are starting to eat into their messaging revenues, but which are not currently available to all users.
Telsis Chairman and CEO Jeff Wilson says that the IP SMS Gateway provides the key connectivity that will maintain messaging revenues. “As networks continue their evolution towards LTE, huge investments are being made in rolling out new network infrastructure. During this transitional period, it is easy to forget the needs of the user, who doesn’t care about the technical aspects of the network – all they want is the ability to communicate with their friends and family, no matter how they are connected to the network or what device they use.”
Telsis has a history of providing messaging innovation for the benefit of the operator. The Telsis SMS Router loosened the grip of SMSC vendors, leading to reduced costs and service benefits, such as SMS Direct Delivery. Telsis SMS Home Routing allowed operators to provide security and value-add services for the messages that people receive. And now, the Telsis IP SMS Gateway provides the service interoperability that allows operators to fight off OTT messaging solutions and maintain their messaging revenues.
The Telsis mission is to enrich people’s lives through innovations in communications technology and services. Over 25 years, Telsis has provided tier-1 network operators with flexible infrastructure and compelling services in voice, text and video.
From TDM, through IP-based networks to IMS and LTE, Telsis provides evolutionary solutions to match customers’ network developments and enable the provision of advanced services today.
