Interop Technologies Broadens Availability of Mobile Content to Millions of Wireless Customers
Interop Technologies, a leading provider of advanced wireless technology solutions for the global wireless, packaged goods, and content industries, today announced that content from VeriSign Messaging and Mobile Media, a division of VeriSign, Inc. ("VeriSign") will be made available to the Interop Common Short Code ("CSC") Gateway. The CSC Gateway extends national short codes, premium short codes, campaign and voting participation, and subscription content to the many wireless network operators served by Interop.
Interop Technologies will offer the aggregated content from VeriSign's Messaging and Mobile Media division. VeriSign's assistance will help mobile content providers distribute and bill for their products through wireless operators to assist the rapidly growing Interop client base. Interop currently serves more than 55 network operators representing millions of customers.
Interop Technologies recently developed this "aggregator of aggregators" approach to simplify the complex wireless content value chain and create benefits for all participants--wireless operators, aggregators, content providers, and customers. The company's CSC Gateway solution includes technology and management tools such as performance reporting and customer care. The gateway enables operators of all sizes to obtain, provision, and manage mobile content in a resource-efficient manner.
"The Interop CSC Gateway provides a convenient, single point of connection between VeriSign and dozens of network operators," said Damian Sazama, Vice President of Marketing and Product Development for Interop Technologies. "This new model goes up a level to make the value chain more efficient for our operators."
