QuickLink® Messenger Enhances Presence Based Instant Messaging with Video, Image, and File Sharing. Provides VOIP, IM, SMS, and Other Text Chat Capabilities
CTIA Wireless 2009 - Las Vegas, NV - Smith Micro Software, Inc. (NASDAQ:SMSI), a leading provider of mobility solutions and services for the wireless market, today announced it would preview QuickLink Messenger, its Rich Communication Suite (RCS) client, at CTIA Wireless 2009. Derived from IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) standards, and created by GSMA, RCS defines a set of interoperable rich media features that provide the user with an enhanced calling experience. Combining voice, chat, SMS, video, image, and file sharing in a single integrated client, QuickLink Messenger opens up a world of possibilities for users looking to share experiences with friends, family, and coworkers. Most importantly, these rich media features can be implemented in a way that provides a consistent and standardized experience across carrier networks and device platforms.
Centered on a presence-based address book, QuickLink Messenger allows users to seamlessly switch between voice, text, chat, and video depending on the capacities of their contacts. Users can manipulate their own presence settings, gaining an unprecedented degree of control to determine how they can be reached. Using QuickLink Messenger, for example, users can configure their device so that text is the only available contact method permitted while they are in a meeting. Smith Micro will be showing a preview version of QuickLink Messenger for both Windows and Windows Mobile allowing operators the opportunity to extend their services beyond the device onto the desktop. The Unified Communications client for Windows will allow users to access the same set of rich media features from their desktop PC as from their handsets.
"QuickLink Messenger establishes Smith Micro's industry leadership in the field of rich media communication clients," said William W. Smith Jr., President and CEO Smith Micro Software. "RCS is an important industry initiative that sets cutting edge technology in the context of an ecosystem that puts interoperability, and therefore user experience, at its heart."
