GSM And CDMA Groups Get The Picture – MMS Interop

The value of a communication network grows exponentially with the number of participants. That’s the lesson the US telcos learned two years ago when they finally interconnected for SMS messages, and sent the service usage skyrocketing. Now two legendary foes, the GSM oriented 3G Americas and the CDMA Development Group, have worked out interoperability guidelines for inter-carrier MMS. These guidelines include the technology solution, and the remuneration mechanisms. Meanwhile, we at Techdirt nod our approval – with somewhat surprised looks on our faces that they got it right. We were expecting the typical walled gardens.
