WAKEFIELD, Mass., Nov. 6, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- At Rich Communication 2012 in Berlin on November 6-7, Comverse® (Nasdaq:CNSI), the global leader in business enablement through BSS, mobile Internet, value-added and managed services, will outline steps that Communication Service Providers (CSPs) can take to make Rich Communication Services (RCS) happen now – and maximize the benefits from its potential to transform telecom service.
RCS capabilities can infuse telecom services with new relevance and value, yet industry and market factors have been inhibiting RCS takeoff. In a key conference presentation entitled Making RCS Happen, Comverse Director of Marketing Shai Perach details how CSPs can roll out attractive offerings on par with over-the-top (OTT) applications within the critical window of opportunity for true mass-market success.
Ramping up to IP usage to critical mass is a key marketing imperative for RCS success. The pragmatic approach pioneered by Comverse's RCS solution addresses critical marketing challenges by also infusing IP capabilities into traditional voice and messaging services, such as integrating CSP services with popular social media apps and enabling them to interoperate seamlessly with all relevant user touchpoints – including PCs and non-RCS devices. This leverages key CSP assets to protect and expand traditional revenues, enhance the user experience, and boost the rate of adoption to ensure market success and self-sustaining growth.
"We are passionate about the power and value of RCS and the urgency to move quickly," said Oz Ovady, Senior Vice President, Value-Added Services General Manager for Comverse. "Comverse RCS Solution & IP Service Enablement Platform makes RCS happen, augmenting mobile services with presence-enriched messaging, media sharing and more. Our trailblazing rapid-scale-up-to-critical-mass approach quickly positions CSPs as the provider of choice for IP communications, giving them a major stake in a field that has too long been left wide open to their over-the-top (OTT) rivals."
