Comverse Delivers Mobile Internet, Visual Voicemail & Multimedia Messaging to Bell Mobility for New High-Speed Network in Canada
WAKEFIELD, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Bell Mobility has selected the Comverse Mobile Internet HUB, visual voicemail and multimedia messaging (MMS) to highlight and make the most of its recently launched high-speed wireless network in Canada.
The Comverse Mobile Internet HUB helps optimize traffic flow and improve the overall Web browsing experience. The new high-speed packet access (HSPA) network also brings Comverse Visual Voicemail to a range of advanced handsets, enriching voicemail service with visual elements, such as an inbox that displays all messages and empowers users to select any message in any order with one click.
Taking the experience even further, Bell users can choose to read their voicemail — Voicemail to Text, which transcribes the voice messages into text and is enabled by Comverse’s industry leading voice messaging platform.
The Comverse MMS Center (MMSC) delivers a rich multimedia messaging experience over Bell’s extensive HSPA device line-up and will allow users to send more – and larger – multimedia messages.
“We want Bell clients to enjoy the very best that mobile technology has to offer,” said Bruce Rodin, Vice President of Wireless Technology, Bell Mobility. “That’s why we offer the country’s fastest and largest high-speed mobile network and that’s why we chose Comverse — for their global technological leadership and proven track record in delivering advanced voice, messaging, and mobile Internet services.”
Comverse HUB Value-Added Services span voice, messaging, mobile Internet and mobile advertising. Comverse HUB is a synergistic framework that enables service providers to maximize their business performance and augment their position in the market.

“Navigating the future successfully requires enriching communications with new services and a compelling, superior user experience, maximizing operator revenues by creating new revenue streams, and reducing costs through operational efficiencies,” Bin said.
