Sunday 23 January 2005 11:39 CET | News

Qpass and Sonim Technologies, have formed an alliance to provide application management and support services to network operators. Qpass and Sonim plan to leverage Qpass Prosperity Series software to enable operators to manage the nextgeneration services like Push-to-Talk (PTT) powered by Sonim’s application.

Through the alliance, Qpass operator customers will be able to quickly integrate Sonim into their business systems giving them the ability to efficiently create and manage new service offerings with the platform. The solution will enable subscribers to provision themselves from the handset, and select from a number of different PTT service packages, thereby achieving a lower cost model and higher revenue yield for PTT services. Additionally, operators will be able to efficiently give content providers the ability to enable their applications with PTT. Prosperity Series gives wireless subscribers the ability to opt in for Sonim service right from their handset and purchase bundles of messages, as well as time-based or unlimited use plans. Qpass will also market Sonim’s capabilities to Qpass’ catalog of more than 185 integrated content providers. These content providers will be able to use Sonim services within their applications, for example, enabling billable PTT within instant messaging and dating applications. In addition, these providers can leverage Sonim’s client to allow subscribers to reach for multimedia content via the push of a button. As of 2004, the mobile data market is almost a $13 billion dollar industry worldwide with expected growth to reach $54 billion by 2008. Consumers are demanding more choices and options in premium mobile content and services. The key to meet this need and be successful in this dynamically growing market is the ability of wireless operators to efficiently leverage next-generation service platforms, and to manage offers via seamless integration with their existing back office systems. This alliance is an ideal example of a next-generation data service which is made easier with a robust services management platform.
