At Fall VON, NMS Communications (NASDAQ: NMSS), a leading provider of communications technologies and solutions for converged and mobile networks, today announced that Malaysian applications provider NGC Systems Sdn Bhd is using NMS's Vision VoiceXML Server to enhance its Genico(TM) 3G video SMS solution.
NGC Systems' solution enhances conventional text-based SMS to attract subscribers and increase usage. The solution, incorporating the Vision VoiceXML server, adds a new layer of mobile interactivity as mobile subscribers using 2G handsets can send and receive voice-based SMS messages, and subscribers using 3G handsets will be able to send and receive both voice and video-based SMS messages.
The application is convenient and easier to use than Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) - subscribers do not need to download a client from the service provider and need only a single click to access the new application.
"Our partnership with NMS sets a new pace for our development of mobile applications and technologies. This is an exciting and powerful melding of technology, because what we will create with NMS will cross communication boundaries," said Terence Chong, vice president of marketing and business development for NGC Systems. "NGC Systems is privileged to be the first Malaysian mobile application developer to partner with NMS, a trusted provider of communication technologies and solutions to mobile operators and carriers around the world."
"With this combined SMS solution, mobile operators can earn incremental revenue, lower their subscriber churn rate and more importantly, provide an exciting new interactive mobile experience for both 2G and 3G subscribers," said John Orlando, chief marketing officer for NMS. "This is just one example of the types of interactive, low latency and high quality video and voice solutions that are made possible using the VoiceXML server."
