Openmind Stress the Importance of Selecting a Messaging Vendor when Building your IP Messaging Network

Openmind (www.openmindnetworks.com) has emerged as one of the world’s leading vendors of messaging solutions who has commanded a leading position in the area of RCS and IMS based messaging solutions. For the mobile operator, the transition to IP will introduce new technology and use cases to their messaging network. There are many facets of messaging that make it sufficiently distinct from other parts of the IMS core, which justifies investment in a specialized solution from an experienced messaging vendor.

Openmind, with its long heritage in messaging, is the ideal partner to guide operators through this transition. The company has recently published a White Paper that contests that Messaging is not a core competence of IMS core vendors, who are assuming that a basic ‘vanilla’ offering will be sufficient to meet operator needs in this area. According to author, Cathal Fitzpatrick, “Using a vanilla messaging component provided as a “tick-the-box” option by an IMS-core vendor will ultimately prove to be false economy. It will limit the Mobile Operators’ ability to launch more advanced IP messaging services, and will cost more money in the long run as they will inevitably replace it with a dedicated messaging solution designed to meet all of the mobile operator’s needs”. The White Paper addresses:

  • Why is there a clear need for Specialist Messaging Providers?
  • How to eliminate unnecessary complexity and functional duplication in your network

Openmind will present this case at the IMS World Forum, (http://worldforum.imsvision.com/) stressing the prudence of selecting a Messaging Vendor to help guide the mobile operator through the transition to IP messaging.

Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
