Brazil deal for Jinny Software

5 Dec 2007

Dublin-headquartered Jinny Software has won a deal with a large Brazilian mobile-group operator to provide message routing services across South-American networks.

The deal is for Jinny’s Message Router, a powerful middleware product that will provide the operator with a single entry and multiple-delivery channels for all content and application providers and short message interconnection with several operators in Brazil.

This contract was won off the back of a successful trial where Jinny proved its capability in handling the complexity of the operator’s interoperability with existing cellular operators through SMPP (TCP/IP-based) and also the ability to provide customisation at short notice, the company said.

The customer, a group operator in Brazil and Latin America, required interoperability to several other key operator groups in South America. The cost/benefit ratio, flexibility and capability of the Jinny Message Router in solving problems regarding interconnection with other operators were key issues addressed in securing this deal, according to Jinny Software.

The Message Router will also support VAS services based on SMPP protocol and include email to SMS and Web2SMS.

This initial deal is only the beginning, with further discussions already taking place around the provision of other solutions.

Jinny Software established its regional headquarters in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in 2006 to support its Latin-American customers and to focus on strong and steady growth in the region.

Jinny Software operates from its headquarters in Dublin, Ireland, and regional headquarters in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, with sales and support offices in Rome, Rio de Janeiro and Kuala Lumpur. It is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Acotel Group, headquartered in Rome and traded on the Milan stock market.

Jinny Software also has a presence in Panama, Barbados, Cayman Islands, Grenada and Jamaica, among other countries.
