Ericsson’s Enriched Messaging (EMe) offers a smooth evolution of existing SMS and MMS services toward SMS over IP and MMS over IP services on IP-based communication infrastructure.
It ensures a full SMS service convergence for consumers with Voice over Wi-Fi (VoWiFi)-capable phones. EMe can also extend classical SMS and MMS service across multiple devices, such as tablets, wearables, and PCs with or without a SIM card. Messages can be sent and delivered from and to all devices by means of an advanced interworking gateway.
EMe is based on open industry specifications defined by 3GPP, OMA (CPM), and GSMA (Rich Communication Services, VoLTE) that are specifically related to messaging services over IMS.
