Mobilkom Austria Group’s M-Tel adopted Openmind’s next generation messaging platform for its operations in Bulgaria. The messaging platform branded as Traffic Control has a capacity to handle 2,000 messages per second.
Furthermore the solution also allows the operator to design and build its own new messaging services. This is possible through the Adapt module from Openmind.
“The Openmind messaging platform is a perfect fit with our overall next generation services network strategy. A strategy that is committed to providing our subscribers with original and innovative new messaging services” explains Alex Stock, Core Division Director at M-tel. “With Traffic Control we get cost efficiencies and performance. The cost efficiencies are driven by it being a fully integrated platform which allows us to reduce our hardware, support and maintenance costs. The performance comes from the capabilities of the platform giving us the capacity and availability we need to service our subscribers today and tomorrow. In addition, Traffic Control provides us with an application gateway that allows external content providers to send messages through our core network that will bring value to our subscribers but in a manner that safe and secure for all parties. ”
Openmind claims that its solution supports a strategy of integrating all messaging services as opposed to competing products which are generally closed and proprietary.
“The combination of a traffic router, application gateway and open API all on one fully integrated messaging platform was unrivalled in the market” explains Stock. “We now have a solution that enhances our strategy and helps us realize new business opportunities in a way that matches both our infrastructure and our business needs.”
