Mobeon Teams with Sun to Drive Innovation and Open-Standards for IP Messaging Services
SANTA CLARA, Calif. and STOCKLHOLM, Sweden - Sun Microsystems, Inc. announced an agreement with Mobeon that will utilize Sun Java Enterprise System software and Solaris Operating System (OS) to create an open, Internet Protocol messaging solution that delivers messaging features and expands carriers' services.
Mobeon's new IP-based messaging services include features such as pre-packaged solutions offering carrier class video mail, voicemail, email - all available from a multi-access interface including voice, Web and WAP. The services include a range of new features designed to increase the call completion rate, including fun greetings, such as a celebrity voicemail; slamdown, which is the ability to retrieve a number even if a voice message wasn't left; and text-to-speech - checking your email using your voice mailbox to deliver messages verbally.
During recent internal performance tests the messaging system scaled from 50,000 users to more than 20 million users. Additionally, the companies recently expanded the IP voicemail implementation, helping one of Mexico's telecom operators to add 5.9 million mailboxes, bringing the total to 15.1 million.
Mobeon and Sun currently deliver over 50 messaging systems distributed among 32 telecom operators around the globe, and together have sold more than 28 million mailboxes.
