Videomail, which seems to be gaining ground, could be just the thing that people are looking for because it conveys the full human experience.
Comverse (News - Alert), well known for its telecom business enablement, couldn’t agree more, and it has trials underway, as it readies North American CSPs to leverage IP capabilities to deliver a feature-rich version of videomail. With video calling and conferencing going mainstream, it’s perhaps just the right time for videomail to make its entry.
"IP videomail is part of the Comverse Evolved Communications Suite (ECS), whose IMS standards-based solutions for Mobile VoIP, RCS and IP Messaging support CSPs in the evolution of their services to IP and the digital era," said Aashu Virmani, vice president product management and product marketing at Comverse.
Videomail not only helps ensure a robust video communication experience, enabling all video calls to be completed, but could play an important role in critical enterprise applications, such as improved remote troubleshooting with customers.
The expansion of 4G/LTE (News - Alert) implementation and penetration of the smartphone are conducive to the growth of videomail. This is because both video calling and videomail can be efficiently delivered by 4G carriers, something that their 3G counterparts could never achieve.
Comverse has a distinct advantage; many leading CSPs are looking at the company as their sole provider for specific IP messaging and voicemail services. It thus enables Comverse to leverage its existing services and enhance subscribers’ digital lifestyle through rich digital services like videomail- a sure shot way for broader subscriber retention and subscription.
Videomail- the next generation Internet communications has arrived.
