GENEVA -- Comverse, a unit of Comverse Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: CMVT), and the world’s leading supplier of software and systems enabling network-based multimedia enhanced communications services, today announced a demonstration of its SMS interconnection with WiFi networks over SIP (Session Initiation Protocol). The demonstration will be presented at ITU Telecom World, October 12-18 in Geneva, Switzerland, at the Comverse stand (Hall 1, USA Pavilion, stand no. 1230.317).

The Comverse ISMSC system allows users logged on to a WiFi network to send and receive short text messages to and from mobile users worldwide. For the mobile operator, this function is designed to provide new opportunities for revenue generation through the offering of enhanced services.

Advanced SIP signaling capability is based on Comverse in-house developments. Comverse's full ownership of an end-to-end text messaging solution enables service providers to achieve smooth migration to next generation IP networks via a hybrid solution (SS7, SIGTRAN, SIP), which is designed to minimize capital expenditure and risk.

At ITU, Comverse will demonstrate how WiFi users can send short text messages to and from advanced technology terminals -- such as a WiFi enabled PDA -- and dual technology networks -- using SIP via the Comverse ISMSC. The demonstration includes sending and receiving messages between a handheld device and a mobile phone. According to Benny Einhorn, Chief Marketing Officer of Comverse: "This system is another example of Comverse’s firm commitment to continuously develop SMS text messaging solutions that enhance the ISMSC portfolio for future applications, infrastructure and demands."
