Rich Communication Services also known as Rich Communication Suite (RCS) are steadily gaining momentum around the globe and attracting more resources to the development process. RCS is a platform for delivering enhanced communication capabilities surpassing voice and SMS. It provides your subscribers with features such as instant messaging, chats, video calling and data exchange across mobile devices on any network.

Elitnet’s RCS Box is a hosted RCS solution perfect for MNOs who have not yet committed to IMS. While the RCS could be a way of making a return on your IMS investment, with RCS Box you do not need to rush and commit to it. RCS Box provides RCS AS (Application Server) and RCS functional nodes for quick and cost-effective deployment of RCS features avoiding the potential problem of costly IMS installation. The solution is perfect for MNOs with limited subscriber bases who want to stay competitive and future-proof their services with this innovative solution.

Additionally, RCS will be built into upcoming devices so your subscribers could use RCS right out of the box. The convenience of a single platform and features beyond voice and SMS help enrich your subscribers’ experience, maintain loyalty and customer relevance.

Ahead of OTT
Most OTT (over-the-top) services do not offer interoperability and are specifically designed to be mutually exclusive, a major disadvantage compared to RCS. The RCS is built on key operator qualities such as omnipresence, global interoperability, quality of service guarantee and security. This means that RCS functions despite what carrier a subscriber is using, is constantly stable and secure. MNO infrastructure is built to higher standards which ensures constant service availability and stability. Combination of these features ensures that RCS outshines any OTT service provider.
