Mobile Content Management System
CBOSSmcms allows telecom operators to expand customers' mobile experience by providing them with an ability to order rich multimedia content from different content providers, send text and multimedia messages, and subscribe to regular newsletters.
CBOSSmcms is the system of choice for telecommunications operators as well as service and content providers.
A subscriber may order multimedia message delivery to any phone number by using:
- SMS or USSD request;
- Operator’s web site
- IVR systems(e.g. CBOSSacc), integrated with CBOSSstc, a service telephone card system.
Receiving a request from the subscriber, CBOSSmcms queues and processes it. If necessary, the system connects to the billing database for the subscriber data. If the subscriber balance is sufficient, CBOSSmcms retrieves the ordered multimedia objects and forwards them to an SMSC or MMSC that delivers it to the recipient.
Depending on the format of the multimedia objects, subscribers receive the objects themselves or a link to them.
CBOSSmcms meets the most stringent requirements of today’s telecommunications market, providing wider reporting, integration, and customer care opportunities.
