Value added SMS and MMS services
Who can use the service?
This service is for Operators, or Service Providers (SP), who wish to offer TIM customers value-added services by SMS or MMS on decade 4 numbers assigned to them. Therefore, the service permits the mobile end customers of TIM and of the virtual Operators hosted on the TIM network to make use of value-added services provided by SMS and MMS on decade 4 numbers.
Description of the service
Value-added services permit access by end customers to premium-charged information or services such as, as an example, financial information (bank transactions, securities, shares), publishing services, weather forecasts, logos, ring tones, games, chats, televoting.
The SP has a business agreement with the Content Service Provider (CSP), in turn responsible for producing, distributing and communicating contents delivered to end customers by Mobile Terminated (MT) SMS/MMS texts.
The service delivered to the end customer is charged to his/her telephone bill, pay-as-you-go or subscription, when the service provider sends him/her a value-added MT SMS/MMS message.
In order to be able to deliver contents using the TIM platforms, the SP must implement the communications protocol indicated in the "Framework Agreement for the supply of value added services on decade 4 by SMS and MMS and other types of data transmission", signed by TIM and the other Operators concerned.
