Multi-Functional, Single Platform Provides Further Cost and Operational Efficiencies for the U.S. mobile operator

Dublin, Ireland, April 18th, 2013  Openmind Networks, (  the leading provider of innovative messaging solutions, including RCS, today announced that Union Wireless ( has expanded Openmind’s Traffic Control messaging platform, availing of the newly available MMSC module.

The existing messaging platform deployed at Union Wireless already powers all SMS traffic for the US based network.  One of the key advantages of selecting Openmind to replace its MMSC was due to the module-based nature of the platform, enabling Mobile Operators to quickly and cost effectively introduce additional messaging based services that complement the core SMSC, without having to purchase additional hardware.

Other modules available within the consolidated platform include Anti-Spam, an Open API, USSD, Business Reporting, and Customer Care.   In line with the continued evolution of messaging, Traffic Control also offers an IP SM-GW and RCS based Messaging Application Server.

Kevin Kleinsmith, Director of Engineering, commented ‘Union Wireless is committed to delivering a breadth of reliable mobile services that offer exceptional value to our customers.  It is extremely important that our infrastructure supports this commitment.  We are very happy with Openmind’s messaging platform and the richness of messaging options that it provides.  It was an easy choice for us to increase our licensed modules to include the MMSC.   Having a single vendor relationship in place for a variety of messaging needs is very useful for us; both from a practical perspective, as we have a single point of contact for support and administration, but more importantly, for the significant cost advantages it offers.  We did not need to purchase additional hardware or need to engage a lengthy project for onsite deployment”.

Tobias Reusch, VP of the Messaging Business Unit at Openmind also commented, “We are delighted to announce this expansion with Union Wireless.  Our product-proven stability, robustness and variety of messaging modules available within a consolidated architecture have led to many of our customers making repeat purchases with Openmind, a testament to their satisfaction with us as a vendor and to our product.”
