Person to Person Communication

OMA Converged IP Messaging V1.0 AER

OMA Converged IP Messaging (CPM) enabler reuses existing and defines new reusable building blocks to create a variety of interpersonal, interactive, multimedia communication services that run on top of an IP network. It is possible for third party applications to use these capabilities. These third party applications also can interact with CPM users as participants. The CPM Enabler provides the functionality for CPM based service users to communicate seamlessly with the users of non-CPM communication services such as SMS and MMS.

OMA Mobile Spam Reporting V1.0 AER

OMA Mobile Spam Reporting (SpamRep) V1.0 enabler provides a protocol or interface and message format for forwarding user-identified spam messages to a network collection point. The user’s device will be provisioned with the address of the report collection node in the operator’s network. Spam reporting is intended to help the Mobile Network Operator reduce the load on their network caused by spammers sending unsolicited/unwanted messages to the operator’s users/subscribers. The reduction in the number of spam messages will also improve the user’s/subscriber’s experience on the operator’s network.
