REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Jan. 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Openwave Systems Inc. (Nasdaq: OPWV), the leading provider of software products and services for the communications industry, today announced that Telefonica Moviles Espana, leading Spanish mobile telecommunications company, has deployed Openwave's (SoloMio) Connect Call Notify service, a real time call management service integrated with Openwave's IP-based adaptive communications platform. With the new call management service, Telefonica Moviles Espana subscribers can communicate quickly and easily on any mobile phone.
Openwave's Connect Call Notify service provides network-based advice to turn unsuccessful communication attempts into successful conversations. Dubbed "AvisaMe," the service allows Telefonica Moviles Espana customers to communicate more effectively and with less frustration. Subscribers no longer have to retry unavailable or busy numbers. After one Telefonica Moviles Espana subscriber calls another and the called party line is unavailable or busy, AvisaMe will notify the initiating party when the called party is again available.
"Today, smart operators are looking to simplify voice and messaging services, so that consumers can focus on the act of communication, rather than the network, device, or protocol used," said Peter Galvin, senior vice president of products and solutions at Openwave. "Telefonica Moviles Espana expansion of Openwave's SoloMio Smart Call services addresses the declining role of voicemail by presenting a new generation of real time call management alternatives to subscribers that drive increases in voice and messaging usage."
In October 2006, Openwave acquired SoloMio Corporation, a leading provider of integrated subscriber call management services. The acquisition provides Openwave with SoloMio's Smart Call(TM) platform and services and extends Openwave's Adaptive Communications suite of products and services with key, real-time messaging functionality. Openwave is a leader in the industry with its IP-based messaging framework; its suite of IP-based messaging and communication products and solutions are designed to address communication service providers' needs for a new class of adaptive communications services that help them address convergence across landline, mobile and broadband networks.
Openwave's messaging, location, browsing and content services span networks and devices. Today, Openwave software is used by more than 100 mobile operators, broadband providers and Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNOs) to enable access to data services for more than 500 million consumers around the world.
