Iceland's On-Waves selects Delaware's IMSWorkX feature rich service delivery platform for its cruise & merchant ship mobile telephone service.

The On-Waves customer base of vessels is diverse, multi-national and multi-lingual. "XpressWorkX is an ideal platform for carrier companies like On-Waves because it offers rapid customization and adaptation of existing applications as well as creation of new ones. New applications can be created by On-Waves or as a service from IMSWorkX," commented Shannon Chevier , President & CEO of IMSWorkX.  

On-Waves will initially deploy the IMSWorkX Unified Messaging application to provide feature-rich voicemail and advanced telecom services on cruise ships. This will also be used to further enhance On-Waves crew welfare provision on merchant marine vessels.

In announcing this move, On-Waves Chief Technology Officer, Roch-Alexandre Nomine said, "The reason for this selection is the comprehensive feature set of the existing telephony applications available from IMSWorkX and the ease and flexibility with which new applications can be built. The XpressWorkX Service Creation Environment is quite remarkable because of its fully visual interface and ease of use. And the Application Server is 'SIP-ready' out of the box with all necessary interfaces already provided. Overall the IMSWorkX solution offers us the quickest time to revenue that we could find in the market and it will integrate fully with our existing GSM and CDMA core networks."

The On-Waves customer base of vessels is diverse, multi-national and multi-lingual.
