Title (EN) INTER-CARRIER MANAGEMENT OF MESSAGING GROUPS
(FR) GESTION INTER-OPÉRATEUR DE GROUPES DE MESSAGERIES
Abstract:
(EN) A system and method to enable the efficient distribution of group messages sent from a mobile device that receives service from one telecommunications carrier, to groups of mobile devices that receive service from one or more other telecommunications carriers. A mobile device user or system operator generates a group distribution list for messages that are to be sent to two or more other users. The group distribution list is provided to a message distribution system that is comprised of distribution agents that are associated with each telecommunications carrier. Each distribution agent is responsible for routing a group message to those mobile devices that receive service from the associated telecommunications carrier.
(FR) L'invention porte sur un système et un procédé pour permettre la distribution efficace de messages de groupe envoyés d'un dispositif mobile, qui reçoit un service d'un seul opérateur de télécommunications, à des groupes de dispositifs mobiles qui reçoivent un service d'un ou plusieurs autres opérateurs de télécommunications. Un utilisateur de dispositif mobile ou un opérateur de système génère une liste de distribution de groupe pour des messages qui peuvent être envoyés à deux autres utilisateurs ou plus. La liste de distribution de groupe est fournie à un système de distribution de message qui est composé d'agents de distribution qui sont associés à chaque opérateur de télécommunications. Chaque agent de distribution est responsable du routage d'un message de groupe vers ces dispositifs mobiles qui reçoivent le service de l'opérateur de télécommunications associé.
