TelcoBridges and value-added services
TelcoBridges hardware and software products support the development and delivery of value-added services to subscribers. While many of them can be provisioned via the Tmedia family of products, with their on-board application hosts, the Tdev family of devices, such as the TMP6400 and the TMP800 are the real workhorses when it comes to delivering advanced value-added services that tie together subscriber-specific information, multimedia content and other real-time information.
