MMS – Multimedia Messaging Service
Multimedia Messaging Services will provide a mechanism to send not only text messages as with the SMS (Short Message Service) but also drawings, photographs, music or voice clips and even short video. The system will operate on the Òstore and forwardÓ principle with messages being stored and possibly formatted at a MMSC (Multimedia Messaging Service Centre) when sent between users. In order to maximize the full potential of MMS, the service will need to run over a 2.5G or 3G network.
