June 09, 2014
Vip Mobile, a mobile operator in Serbia has deployed Openmind’s (News - Alert) USSD Gateway that will be integrated with the former’s customer self-care suite of services to provide greater support. This is expected to help Vip improve its network further and streamline customer support interactions. Vip offers a full portfolio of mobile services for its prepaid and postpaid subscribers and business users.
Natali Delic, director of IT and core network and services of Vip mobile said, “USSD is a critical part of our customer service offering, enabling us to give our customers new ways to interact and tailor their services.”
After the Openmind SMSC module was implemented, Vip mobile activated the new USSD module. Both the USSD gateway and SMSC module form part of Traffic Control, Openmind’s consolidated messaging platform. As Traffic Control was implemented already, the integration of the USSD module was seamless and cost effective for Vip.
Traffic Control serves as a fully integrated solution enabling mobile operators to consolidate various types of legacy systems on a single platform. The highly flexible platform houses an SMSC, MMSC, USSD gateway, application gateway and spam filter.
Also present are advanced business reporting logic and customer care interfaces. The built-in SIP interface in the Traffic Control facilitates the launch of IMS and RCS messaging services, said officials.
Openmind serves customers including mobile operators and inter-carrier operators, besides social and media providers. It also reaches customers via the App space. The company provides a gateway that enables easy transfer of data between individuals, groups, Apps, service providers and machines.
Recently Openmind Networks (News - Alert) launched a new Software Development Kit (SDK) called Golgi. Golgi leverages Openmind’s powerful Traffic Control Communication platform which is already used by mobile network operators, inter-carrier providers and social media global giants. Traffic Control is responsible for processing over one billion mobile messages every day.
Built on Traffic Control within the Cloud, Golgi provides developers with a toolkit for App to App and App to Server rich content and function transport. Developers can now focus on App features and design rather than data transport.
