Advanced Messaging

FLK Advanced Messaging services help you manage and deliver the latest messaging services. Our proven services are backed by more than twelve years of experience in delivering high-quality customized messaging platforms to some of the world’s largest providers. Each of our Advanced Messaging services is proven in reliability, scalability, and compliance with industry standards. The following Advanced Messaging services are available as a complete system in tandem with our basic mobile messaging services, or as individual solutions.

RCS

More and more, mobile customers are going far beyond text messaging and voice calls to communicate with their mobile devices. The FLK Rich Communication Suite (RCS), an integrated and unified messaging platform, allows you to meet the growing customer demand for chat, live video, file sharing and IM. The FLK RCS enables multiple messaging options with any contact in your customers’ address books. Offer your customers more value-added services and ensure that their positive experience encourages use. Unlike many services available now, FLK is not limited by the communication environment of the sender or recipient but can be used on most mobile devices in most network environments.

How it Works

The FLK RCS platform is a messaging framework that delivers a great user experience by providing various messaging delivery methods such as message delivery (store & forward), immediate delivery, and session-based messaging among others. The platform integrates the existing functionality of a messaging-based service with the new functions of SIP based-communication.

FLK RCS provides a flexible integration structure with service enablers such as presence and XDM. The Suite offers basic functions such as one-to-one and one-to-many messaging as well as newer communications services by interworking with service applications inside and outside of the other users’ network.

MSG-AS

While digital communications quickly advance, SMS is holding steady as a favorite communications mode for many, especially the youngest generations. The challenges to the smooth delivery and receipt of messages can come when different platforms, protocols, and network technologies try to talk to each other. FLK has solved this issue with its MSG-AS service for seamless messaging. FLK has rich commercial experience in MSG-AS implementation and deployment, as well as successfully interworking with diverse legacy services, systems, and IP network infrastructures. With MSG-AS, FLK delivers a flexible, reliable service that simplifies delivery of SMS with IP core-networks such as IMS.

How it Works

Without requiring additional systems, the FLK MSG-AS solution supports 2G, 3G, and 4G SMS services by embedding 2G/3G SMSC and IP-SM-GW into the service. The MSG-AS has a flexible architecture based on reliable and extensible stack technology and also offers routing policy management according to network status.

  • To support 1x environment, MSG-AS provides message submission through the SMDPP MAP Data
  • To support IMS environment, MSG-AS provides message submission through SIP protocol
  • In the case of abnormal 4G network activity, the MSG-AS service will route SMS to another network based on a subscriber’s profile. The solution’s efficient structure provides messaging services through both circuit-switching (CS) networks and IMS networks. It also has DBMS, scheduling, service interface, and a statistics reporting module to monitor and manage internal processes.
