Event: Friday, June 7th, 2013 at 12 Noon EDT

TelestaxTelScale is a USSD Gateway built on an extensible middleware platform,  TelScale JSLEE. It enables operators to create and deliver dialogue-based services by providing an intermediary platform that links content providers to end users, providing subscribers with high-speed interactive access to a wide range of content. The network push feature of the gateway makes it even more attractive to keep the users updated about the latest events they subscribe to.

Background: Unstructured Supplementary Service Data (USSD) is a protocol used by GSM cellular telephones to communicate with the service provider’s computers. USSD is defined in the GSM standard documents GSM 02.90 and GSM 03.90. WAP supports USSD. It is often used by carriers for simple menu and dialogs that work on any mobile handset.
