The server solution – originally developed by Capgemini for Orange – is based on the Rich Communications Service (RCS) messaging standard, accredited by the international mobile trade association GSMA. The product is completely interoperable with RCS-based services from other operators.
The new white label Joyn server will provide mobile network operators with a tried and tested solution that has already been developed, built and deployed across multiple geographies and will be extremely quick and cost-effective to deploy. It is already being used by Orange customers in France and Spain.
Erwan Le Duff, Global Telecoms Practice Lead, Europe at Capgemini comments: “We are pleased to announce general availability of our Joyn messaging offer to MNOs worldwide. Over the last three years we have worked alongside Orange to create a robust and interoperable solution for its customers to use across networks and platforms. This is the ideal off-the-shelf solution for MNOs that have not yet developed or rolled out a RCS messaging product for their customers.”
Thierry Souche, Senior Vice President, Orange Labs Products and Services, said: “Our customers do not care that there are borders between mobile operators, countries or technology standards. A solution should just be interoperable and work. The more operators that implement RCS messaging, the more customers benefit from a seamless experience. That’s why we support Capgemini’s efforts to roll out this server solution across the industry.”
