Rating: Helping Manx Telecom build its NGN for global eBusiness
Because Mobilethink’s device management solution (DMS) provides over-the-air (OTA) configuration settings for all devices including those running Windows Phone 7 (W7 Mango), its platform has been selected by Manx Telecom for its Next Generation Network (NGN). With increasing numbers of devices in the NGN likely to be running the Windows Phone 7 operating system, Mobilethink’s unique fix for WP7 phones which is included in its latest platform, was one of the reasons behind Manx Telecom’s decision to deploy the new DMS.The DMS is being provided through Mobilethink’s business partner Morpho Cards (www.morpho.com), which also supplies the carrier with silent SMS detections from SIM card to DMS. This enables OTA device connectivity settings to be issued automatically and instantly.
“Every second counts in our ARPU-focussed mobile world and ensuring that customer’s have a no-hassle experience when joining a network is the ultimate goal,” Thomas Yde Frederiksen, Mobilethink’s chief of product management and marketing, observed.
