Evolved Intelligence has launched a managed application service for mobile operators called Remote ENGINE. The applications available within the engine cover roaming, messaging, pre-pay and a number of other areas. Access to the applications is provided by a network interface function (NIF), which is attached to the operators network and which itself connects with one of Evolved Intelligences remote servers via IP. The company says the service is an answer to operators need to launch new applications at a time when capital expenditure is constrained. The commercial model is based upon a set-up fee, plus a monthly fee, on the number and type of applications used, together with the peak system capacity required.
Our service offers operators access to a library of applications (that) can be implemented rapidly and at low cost, says Evolved Intelligence Marketing Director, Robin Burton. This means that the entry cost for launching a new service can be very low indeed. Operators can test out the value of new services, without having to make a big up front investment. It also means that smaller operators can afford to launch applications which previously would have been too expensive.
The service uses Evolved Intelligences ENGINE architecture. This provides an open, multi-tenanted, multi-application, environment, which allows third-party applications to be hosted. This expands the range of applications available and also, claims Evolved Intelligence, sets the operator free from vendor lock in.
Evolved Intelligence has already developed a wide range of services including roaming steering, welcome SMS messaging, SMS fraud management and optimal routing. New application development is also available for bespoke applications. Operators using the managed service can, if they wish at a later time, implement their own ENGINE platform and move all of the applications in house.
