"Mobile operators have to be responsive to the subscriber demand for innovation in the messaging marketplace. Our PMC is a great example of that innovation. This product gives the subscribers what they want – the ability to start a text message conversation on one device and then pick it up on another device, including smartphones, tablets, laptops and PCs. Seamless synchronization across devices gives the subscriber the conversational continuity they desire. We are extremely excited that this product has been so well received by both consumers and the industry."

Infinite Convergence's Personal Messaging Cloud (PMC) is a network-based, device-agnostic solution that extends the text, multimedia and content messaging experience to tablets and PCs to allow consumers to use messaging across all devices. PMC can be accessed by smartphones, web portals, tablets, PCs or other mobile devices via a messaging client. Messages and related content sent to and from any device is stored and accessible from the PMC. Messages are also synchronized between the local message storage in the user's device and messages stored in the PMC. PMC leverages the carrier authentication process to ensure security and also functions across all infrastructures, including Wi-Fi, IMS and non-IMS.

PMC is based on a cloud application platform with a large-scale intelligent storage solution designed to accommodate millions of subscribers. The platform allows servers to be added, removed, updated and brought online without any service disruption. PMC can also be used to replicate data across geographic sites for disaster recovery.
