mBridge Takes Home Best Mobile Service Solution
SAN JOSE, CALIF. - MAY 18, 2009- Aicent, Inc. (www.aicent.com) announced today that Network Products Guide, the industry’s leading publication on information technologies and solutions, has named mBridge a winner of the 2009 Product Innovation Award. This venerable annual award recognizes and honors the innovative and ground-breaking products from vendors from all over the world that are bringing essential and incremental changes and are setting the bar higher for others in all areas of information technology.
“Innovation is clearly an important factor to greater success and has the most impact on staying competitive," says Rake Narang, editor-in-chief of Network Products Guide. “Aicent’s mBridge allows operators to provide the absolute best MMS delivery, even to non-enabled MMS phones, which proves not only product innovation but also ground-breaking technology benefitting the entire mobile community.”
mBridge MMS Virtual Delivery is the newest version of Aicent’s multimedia messaging service (MMS) that enables global carrier partners to offer subscribers a way to easily send multimedia messages to any non-enabled MMS phone, including the iPhone, across any network, any time. mBridge works by allowing the recipient to download and reply to incoming MMS messages from a web URL link embedded in an SMS notification, allowing subscribers who send the message to use their normal sending procedures.
“Winning the best mobile service solution for this year’s Product Innovation award is further validation that new approaches to solving the communications challenges brought about by a fragmented mobile marketplace are not only possible but will meet the high expectations of our customers,” said MK Chang, vice president of product marketing at Aicent. “As services like MMS swiftly gain momentum in the market, we look forward to offering the best solutions to help our carrier customers meet the messaging and data needs of their mobile subscribers.”
