Ericsson to deliver world's first open-standard CDMA2000 MMS solution to Verizon Wireless
Ericsson has installed its technology to integrate MMS, including custom extensions and services, seamlessly into Verizon Wireless' existing nationwide CDMA2000 network.
"Verizon Wireless, the world's largest CDMA operator, has entrusted Ericsson with its nationwide multimedia messaging service, and I think that speaks volumes," said Angel Ruiz, President and Chief Executive Officer, Ericsson Inc. "Furthermore, Ericsson's systems integration services mean that Verizon Wireless will be able to bring this powerful, open-standard based service to market in 2003."
Ericsson's MMS solution is technology agnostic and based on the MSS standard approved by 3GPP and 3GPP2.
Ericsson's MMS technology offers a dramatic increase in mobile-to-mobile and mobile-to-e-mail messaging capabilities by enabling users to send color pictures, animations, audio and video clips along with text, such as electronic reminders and postcards, animated instructions and cartoons, and multimedia presentations.
