Product Overview

ZXCMA Converged Message Architecture

The evolution of the global mobile network has experienced rapid development from 2G to 5G, and the operator's messaging service has gradually developed from SMS to a variety of forms of messaging services, such as MMS, voice mail, USSD, and RCS for rich communication and chatbot. The way of communication develops from people to people, to communication between applications and people, and to communication between things and things. To adapt to the continuous changes, ZTE has proposed the CMA (Converged Message Architecture) solution, which has the following characteristics: 1. CMA converges all telco’s messaging services, which is compatible with 2G/3G/4G/5G core network access, and flexibly realizes the capabilities of each service engine in a componentized and microservice manner; 2. Based on the NFV cloud-based architecture, CMA retains the characteristics of existing messaging services, realizes rapid service deployment, elastic scaling of resources, and reduces construction costs for operators; 3. CMA provides an intelligent maintenance & business operation system, and supports intelligent installation, upgrade, inspection, monitoring, decision-making and other functions, reducing operators' operation and maintenance costs.

Major Functions:

1. Fully-converged Messaging Platform: CMA provides a fully-converged messaging platform that supports various messages from 2G to 5G networks. The same modules can be used for resource sharing or centralized deployment of equipment, reducing operational investment and construction costs.
2. NFV Support: Based on the NFV cloud architecture, CMA supports the separation of software and hardware, and the separation of service state and processing logic, enabling flexible and rapid service deployment service scaling.
3. Multi-country and Multi-tenant Support: CMA supports multi-tenant architecture, realizes service, configuration and data isolation for each tenant, and meets the needs of operators for hosting and providing MVNO services.
4. Componentized intelligent maintenance & business operation: CMA intelligent maintenance & business operation  system, providing CMA-Board (multi-dimensional business analysis), CMA-Doctor (real-time operation and maintenance monitoring), CMA-Deploy (one-key upgrade/deployment), CMA-Decision (intelligent decision-making), CMA-Chatbot (terminal subscription) to meet operators' precise O&M and operational needs.

Product Highlights:

1. Most converged services: Support convergence of SMS, MMS, VMS, USSD, RCS, IPSMGW,and SMSF service.
2. Proved cloud solution: Fully compatible with mainstream VM suppliers, CMA is on the certification list of Redhat and VMware.
3. Future-oriented architecture: Seamless evolution to add 5G messaging enablers.

Customer Benefits:

1. Reduce TCO: Through the fully converged platform with CMA, CAPEX and OPEX are effectively reduced.
2. Smooth migration: CMA with rich experience of mainstream cloud platform deployment helps the operators to realize smooth migration for Cloud VAS.
3. Service evolution: ZTE as world's leading 5G Messaging solution vendor helps operators evolve message services in 5G era.
