It’s easy to see the appeal of keeping the Internet in your pocket. As well as being easier to carry around than a computer, the small screen of a mobile phone offers a quick and hugely convenient source of information in scenarios such as on a crowded bus or on train journeys.
More and more companies are picking up on the Mobile Internet trend and creating bespoke made-for-mobile web pages. Popular information and entertainment downloads include ringtones, games, horoscopes, music, real-time news and travel information, all delivered directly to the mobile phone at the touch of a button, from any location.
In order to cater for the huge surge in mobile downloads, leading-edge equipment is of paramount importance to carriers and Service Providers. Implementation of Mobile Internet requires expertise and experience with many different networks and protocols, so that the convergence can encompass existing infrastructure and grow to meet the increasing demand for access.
In order to cater for the increasing demand in Mobile Internet Services, Europe’s largest interactive mass media platform STORM, has rolled out a range of new service capabilities.
Mobile Internet services can now be built quickly and easily using STORM’s RedResponse service builder.
