Messaging for the Marianas as new service launches in Micronesia

Subscribers across the Mariana Islands in Micronesia will soon have access to a new messaging solution provided by the archipelago’s leading telecoms firm, IT&E. Roughly 100,000 mobile users across Saipan, Guam, Tinian and Rota will have access to the new solution, provided by Jinny Software.

Jinny will provide IT&E with a messaging and media solution comprising a Short Message Service Centre (SMSC), a Multimedia Service Centre (MMSC), WAP Gateway, Voice Mail System (VMS), and the CDMA Over-the-Air (OTA) programming to enable remote reprogramming of mobile devices. The solution will cover both CDMA and GSM networks.

IT&E is the largest telecommunications company in the Mariana Islands. New products and services have fuelled the growth of the company, most notably smartphones and global roaming services. IT&E now offers its customers the ability to roam to over 230 countries with their current CDMA number.

Richard Choi, Chief Commercial Officer of Jinny Software, said: “We are delivering the ability to not just provide messaging services, but also to increase revenues via call completion strategies, and all in a single deployment.”
