OMA announces MMS version 1.2 with emphasis in interoperability between GSM, CDMA, 3GPP and 3GPP2
The Open Mobile Alliance (OMA), announced its Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) version 1.2. With this introduction, OMA fulfils one of the critical requirements for the commercial success of MMS by answering the industry's need for interoperability of MMS as well as its interworking between messaging systems.

The Open Mobile Alliance delivers open standards for the mobile industry, helping to create interoperable services that work across countries, operators and mobile terminals.

Designed to provide a global industry standard for MMS application development, the MMS version1.2 enabler release represents a starting point for the integration between MMS systems and current messaging systems, such as Internet-based email systems, across countries, operators and mobile terminals. OMA MMS version 1.2 specifications define a minimum set of requirements and conformance to enable end-to end interoperability of MMS applications, MMS capable handsets and servers, and content provisioning.

The successful completion of the OMA MMS version 1.2 enabler releases is the result of the commitment of OMA member companies, in addition to requirements contributions from operator community groups such as GSM Association (GSMA) and CDMA Development Group (CDG).

In addition, OMA is collaborating with the 3G Partnership Project (3GPP) and 3GPP2 to align standardisation efforts on different layers of MMS technology.

"MMS has been high on 3GPP's agenda since the start, as we believe it plays a vital role in introducing users to the sorts of features that will become increasingly available with 3G. As a result, we are delighted that MMS is being deployed so extensively and welcome the initiatives of the OMA to stimulate further collaboration between the diverse interest groups," said Asok Chatterjee, Chairman of 3GPP's Project Co-ordination Group.
