LONDON -- LogicaCMG today announced that Microcell Solutions Inc., providers of wireless communications services under the Fido brand name, has selected LogicaCMG’s Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) hosting solution, RealMMS. This three-year managed services contract enables Microcell to offer premium messaging services such as picture messaging to its subscribers across Canada.

RealMMS enables Microcell to completely outsource its MMS infrastructure. Through this process, Microcell can offer high quality multimedia services to subscribers quicker and more cost-effectively than by implementing an in-house solution, enabling immediate revenue generation. Microcell, which launched their MMS service on April 20, offers its customers a range of Siemens, Nokia and Sony Ericsson handsets, most of which are MMS-capable.

LogicaCMG’s RealMMS utilizes the LogicaCMG MMS platform and is co-managed by LogicaCMG and ClearSky Mobile Media, the leading provider of hosted wireless Internet services.

“We needed to offer next-generation messaging as soon as possible, while minimizing expenses,” said Todd Tomkinson, Director of Product Development and Management with Microcell Solutions. “The managed service MMS solution from LogicaCMG meets our needs and offers us the latest messaging technology with low risk entry to the market. LogicaCMG has been a trusted partner for some time, having implemented other messaging solutions for us. We are confident that this hosted solution will be at the same high standard.”

DeWayne A. Nelon, president of LogicaCMG Telecoms in North America & CALA, said, “RealMMS combines LogicaCMG's industry-leading messaging technology with a world-class carrier-grade hosting environment. We are confident that our partnership with Microcell will offer the best subscriber experience and generate significant revenue.”
