MX Telecom MMS Gateway

Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) Overview

MX Telecom's MMS Gateway allows mobile content providers to send and receive multimedia messages (MMS) that include text, images, audio, graphics and video.

MMS is easy for cell phone users to adapt to because of its similarity to SMS and the presence of dedicated on-device user interfaces. Each message is a single multimedia presentation supporting delivery of multiple forms of media. This makes it a simple, user friendly method of sending multimedia mobile content.

Enhance your messaging

With the rapid development of sophisticated new handsets in the marketplace, the demand for MMS applications will multiply, together with the associated business opportunities for content providers. By supporting personalized multimedia content, MMS can provide a variety of rewarding communication experiences. With experience in mobile connectivity dating from 2000 and a respected market position as a globally leading premium rate provider, MX Telecom is perfectly positioned to help you generate those experiences.
