Adamind says that it has been selected by IBM to provide its Adamind Spire Platform as the core content adaptation component for IBM's Service Delivery Platform (SDP) solution at one of India's largest telecom services providers.
The contract will generate revenues of more than USD2.5 million for Adamind. This includes both a fixed amount for the sale of licenses (to be recognized over a four-year period), and, for ongoing support & maintenance. The Company expects that further licenses will be purchased by the provider as traffic increases and upgrades are required.
IBM, one of the world's largest system integrators, is providing consultancy and integration services for the service provider's SDP solution. It is estimated that the platform will be live within ten months of integration.
The deployment of the Spire Platform in IBM's centralized architecture equips the service provider's Mobility group with technology that will handle all their person-to-person (P2P) and application-to-person (A2P) multimedia messaging (MMS) traffic. It will enable the service provider to offer both on-the-fly content adaptation for adapting time sensitive and dynamic content such as breaking news as well as offline content adaptation for validation, batch versioning and preparation of content.
Furthermore, the technology enables them to apply a consistent look to all content deployed over their network regardless of content source by creating their own template policy, and to support a wide range of devices through a managed device profile service provided.
Service Delivery Platforms (SDP) are horizontal network architectures implemented on open standards enabling Messaging & Content Services Providers to take full advantage of common functions supporting multiple services such as security, storage, media adaptation over the network. By deploying SDPs, service providers can rapidly and cost-effectively deliver new, differentiated revenue-generating services."
