COMET: Converged messaging technology

Project ID: 027234
Funded under: FP6-IST


In its bare essence, the server centric part of Comet is a Message Router (MR), capable of routing messages between different Message Service Centres, e.g. an SMSC. For this purpose, Comet defined an open protocol, Message Routing Protocol MRP, to facilitate the exchange of messages. The Message Routing Protocol allows single messages as well as instant message dialogues to be exchanged between distinct and previously incompatible message domains, including Sms, MMS, IM, voicemail and videomail. From an end-user perspective, MRP allows a messaging user to seamlessly send and receive messages, without having to know what messaging technology his/her counterpart is using.
