Hi,

I am wondering, what the advantage of using SMS Push Notification for
Enterprise Customers is? I was using this service for my own device with the
default settings. In around 24 hours I used approx. 100 SMS. = Lot of money!

If the reason is battery life time, I could buy an nuclear power station
with the money I have to spend every month, if I have 500 users using this
SMS Push Notification service on my server.

What I was not able to test, but see an advantage is, when user are
travelling around the world and the company would like to save roaming
costs. May the trigger should be a bit higher than 5 minutes (maybe 60
minutes) in this case.

Thanks in advance for some explanation of this feature.

bye Melkon

Hello Melkon,

This feature was included, because it was a product requirement for an Asia
customer. It is understood that certain parts of the world might find it
better to use SMS push vs. IP based push. We don't anticipate many of our
customers using SMS based push, but it's in the product if they would like
to, and it does conserve battery life.

Good day Diane,

Thanks for your answer....I understood...But why we do not try to save also
money? Everybody knows, that roaming costs are high. So my idea is, that
Mobile Office has a switching feature. If the device is in a no roaming area
use IP-Push. If the user is in a roaming area use SMS based push. In this
scenario the SMS costs could be cheaper, than the IP data packet prices.

That would be a nice feature and synergy of both btw. good working
technologies.

bye Melkon

Hello Melkon,

You raise a very valid scenario. I'll enter this as a feature request and
bring it to the attention of product management.

Regards,
Diane
