Silent Communication today announced that its visual voicemail (Silent VVMTM) mobile client has been deployed to power MetroPCS´ new Visual Voice Mail and Visual Voice Mail Plus services. Silent Communication’s serverless Device and Network Agnostic (DANA) deployment technology enables MetroPCS to roll out its full-featured Visual Voice Mail services to Android-powered devices in its portfolio.
The Silent VVMTM mobile client allows subscribers to manage voice mail with the same ease in which they manage SMS, MMS or email. Users can browse voice messages visually, listen to messages with one click, and respond to voice messages via call back, SMS, MMS or email. Users can also view text transcriptions of their voice messages, allowing customers to manage voice mail from end-to-end in environments where audio message playback is impractical.
MetroPCS offers its Silent VVM-powered Visual Voice Mail service on select devices; the Samsung Galaxy IndulgeTM, the LG Optimus MTM, the Huawei AscendTM and the Huawei Ascend TapouT Edition. The Silent VVM client is pre-integrated with MetroPCS’ voice mail network provider, Alcatel Lucent, and voice-to-text provider, Yap.
“Silent Communication’s unique ability to provide high-value mobile services like visual voice mail affords our customers numerous competitive advantages,” said Silent Communication CEO Max Bluvband.
“With Silent’s DANA technology, customers are able to speed time to market with visual voice mail and eliminate resource-intensive, OS-specific application development cycles. This uniform development and deployment model ensures that our customers´ subscribers with visual voice mail-supported plans can take advantage of this service immediately on any specified devices.”
About Silent Communication’s DANA Deployment Technology
DANA is Silent Communication’s serverless Device and Network Agnostic deployment technology for mobile clients. As mobile devices and operating systems continue to proliferate, mobile network operators are challenged to get to market quickly with differentiating, revenue-driving services that can be implemented across the full subscriber base.
Resource constraints force mobile operators to make hard choices about the devices they’ll support with a new service, and in the many months it takes to bring a new service to market, a new generation of devices will have emerged. This model practically ensures that service providers are late to market with services for the newest, most coveted devices in their portfolio, negatively impacting revenue and customer satisfaction.
Silent Communication’s serverless Device and Network Agnostic (DANA) deployment technology eliminates these challenges. Development cycles are reduced from months to weeks, and all devices are supported on ‘day one’ of the service launch. This capability ensures that mobile operators can drive revenue quickly with high-value services, and customers don’t have to wait to obtain the services that they demand. Silent Communication´s mobile clients can be seamlessly deployed to any mobile device, spanning Android, BlackBerry, Symbian, Windows Mobile, Java, Brew and iOS operating systems.
