Nokia is supplying its multimedia messagingservices (MMS) infrastructure solution to Cingular Wireless, the second largest wireless carrier in the USA. Utilizing this technology, Cingular brings its messaging service to life, allowing MMS customers to personalize communication in a simple manner.

The end-to-end Nokia MMS solution enables person-to-person MMS, which is a greatly enriched messaging service, allowing users to send photographs, pictures, video and voice or sound clips with text messages. Also available are a range of content-download services which also allow users to deliver ready-made, color postcard messages to friends with their favorite pictures or animated cartoons. Thanks to the Nokia Multimedia Application Gateway, multimedia messaging notification can be sent between MMS-capable phones or even to owners without MMS-ready phones. The Nokia solution provides intelligent connectivity to e-mail, video services and rich push/pull applications among other services. Deliveries of Nokias Multimedia Messaging Service Center and Application Gateway have already been completed and the service is available to Cingular customers. Cingular subscribers will be able to enjoy the services with a variety of MMS-capable phones, including the Nokia 3600 smart phone, which is already available in Cingulars GSM markets.
