Overview

MMS technology is one of the services initially designed by the 3GPP and WAP Forum. Recently, two other standardization organizations have been developing extensions for this service. These organizations are the Open Mobile Alliance (OMA) and the MMS Interoperability Group (MMSIOP). While MMS designers have been working for several years on the topic, MMS is just emerging in the market and is regarded by business analysts as one of the killer applications for the next decade. It will reshape the landscape of mobile communication, making it more personal, more versatile, and more expressive than ever before. Multimedia Messaging Service: Provides a practical reference guide to MMS, including standardisation, architecture, transaction flows, developer tools, commercial solutions and the future of MMS, illustrated with numerous examples Includes an introductory chapter to MMS clearly explaining its place in the messaging arena and covers MMS generalities such as billing models etc Features an accompanying website providing examples that implementers can use to test their solutions and useful links to relevant MMS standards Essential reading for all content providers, service providers, network operators and telecommunications manufacturers. The extensive coverage of MMS also makes this ideal for researchers, postgraduate students, marketing and standardisation personnel in the field.
