ABI Research report underscores Comverse’s strength in worldwide messaging market

30 November 2009 – Comverse has the largest global market share for providing Multimedia Messaging Centres (MMSCs) to global telecom carriers, says ABI Research, a leading market intelligence company specialising in global connectivity and emerging technology.

Comverse also is one of two leading companies among SMS text messaging (SMSC) providers, according to the research report, “Mobile Messaging Services: SMS, MMS, Mobile Email, and Mobile IM,” which was released recently.

“Independent validation of our leadership position in multimedia messaging is further evidence that our innovative MMS solutions are recognised within the telecom industry for superior performance and are replacing legacy MMSC installations around the world,” said Dror Bin, President of Global Sales at Comverse, the world's leading supplier of software and systems enabling value-added messaging and content services, converged billing and active customer management, and IP communications.

”These research findings indicate that operators upgrading their MMS systems to unleash the value of their network prefer a field-proven, future-ready solution that enhances the messaging offering and the flexibility to cater to operator-specific needs,” Bin said.

According to the ABI report, mobile messaging will deliver more than $147 billion in revenues to mobile operators, and traffic will grow just under 10 % annually for the next five years.

“Key reasons driving carriers to replace legacy MMS solutions include growth in the use of MMS messages and its potential appeal as a cost-effective channel for advertisers,” said Jonathan Collins, Principal Analyst at ABI Research.

Besides its leadership positions in the MMS and SMS areas, Comverse is ranked among the top providers of other mobile messaging services. For many years, Comverse has been the global voicemail market leader and also has enabled well in excess of half of commercial visual voicemail deployments worldwide.

“A major player in the mobile messaging space, Comverse provides messaging solutions across SMS, MMS, instant messaging, voicemail and unified messaging through fixed and mobile networks,” Collins said. “There are few regions of the world where Comverse is not substantially represented within the infrastructure of mobile operators”

Comverse MMSC and SMSC are part of the Comverse Messaging HUB, a comprehensive platform addressing current and future messaging needs with a rich set of services, such as smart personalisation services, web converged messaging inbox, sponsored messaging capabilities and enhanced messaging solutions. Its flexible cost-effective evolution path extends the operator’s offering towards next-generation RCS and IP converged messaging.

Comverse Messaging HUB is a key component of Comverse HUB Value-Added Services, spanning voice, messaging, mobile internet and mobile advertising. Comverse HUB is a synergistic framework that enables service providers to maximise their business performance and augment their position in the market.
