PC Management has purchased Interop Technologies’s short message service center (SMSC) 4.0 and subscriber capability originated provisioning environment (SCOPE) device management offerings including support services.
Headquartered in Bonita Springs, Florida, PC Management is a regional wireless operator and a mobile and convergence applications services provider. The company plans to deploy the offerings in first quarter of 2010.
According to Interop, the SMSC 4.0 suite enables PC Management to offer messaging services and generate additional revenue. It provides PC Management with custom development services, application and administration training for its employees, and technology to manage customer devices on its networks.
In addition, Interop SMSC 4.0 supports the IP multimedia subsystem (IMS)/session initiation protocol (SIP) framework for messaging while maintaining interoperability with handsets and networks. It also enables PC Management to expand its messaging customer base and deliver 4G messaging services.
SCOPE automatically identifies device problems and manages new devices compliant with open mobile alliance DM, FUMO and SCOMO standards and integrates into existing SS7-based DM suite for CDMA or GSM, the company said.
The new contract enhances PC Management’s current offerings, which include Interop’s common short code gateway. The addition of Interop’s SMSC will allow for dynamic updates of short codes through auto-provisioning, reducing the amount of time needed to initiate campaigns, Interop said.
Bob Martin, CEO of PC Management, said: “We are very pleased with the high performance of Interop’s solutions, as well as the knowledgeable support the company provides. We know we can count on Interop to provide the scalability and reliability we need for future growth.”
