MTS Preps RCS With Mavenir
RICHARDSON, Texas -- Mavenir Systems (MVNR), a leading provider of software-based networking solutions, today announced that it will provide Rich Communication Services (RCS) and WebRTC services to Mobile Telesystems (MOEX:MTSS), the leading provider of telecommunication services in Russia and the CIS.
Mavenirs RCS solution, based on its Rich Messaging Server (RMS), enables advanced multimedia services such as instant messaging, file transfer, voice calling and video conferencing through a single application installed on the phone. Mavenir is also providing its WebRTC Gateway, based on the Unified Access Gateway (UAG), to enable delivery of RCS services to the web and introduce new unified communication services for the corporate segment.
"In the first stage, we plan to sell RCS services for 10-20 Rubles per month. We will try to attract customers by offering them a universal communication tool with a guaranteed quality," said Maksim Marasanov, Director of Products and Services Development Department, MTS. "We are aware that the RCS will affect the income from SMS and our task is to replace these losses and increase revenues, which we expect that this will be done within two years of service launch."
