Abstract

A method and system is disclosed for converging mobile notifications from different notification systems. The method and system converges the services of different mobile notification systems such as, but not limited to, Short Messaging Service (SMS), Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS), Message Queuing Telemetry Transport (MQTT) and Push Notification System (PNS).

Method and System for Converging Mobile Notifications from Different Notification Systems

Currently, there are various avenues for mobile notifications. The most common mobile notification systems include Short Messaging Service (SMS), Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS), Message Queuing Telemetry Transport (MQTT) / Enterprise Messaging Systems and Push Notification System (PNS). The problem

with all these systems is that each of these systems requires separate configuration

or programmatic inclusion in a mobile application. This poses maintenance and management issues in an enterprise as each application has a stream of management. Moreover, with the 'swim lane' approach, there is no way to provide prioritization and varying degree of Quality of Service (QoS) features.

Fig. 1 illustrates an exemplary implementation of a typical SMS communication server.

As illustrated in Fig. 1, a SMS gateway works with telecom or network providers for providing mobile notifications.

Fig. 2 illustrates an exemplary implementation of a typical push notification service.

As illustrated in Fig. 2, for a push notification, each mobile device / operating system has a PNS server in a public ecosystem. For a PNS service, a user needs to have a subscription for registration and identification of request as the push notification.

Fig. 3 illustrates an exemplary implementation of a typical MQTT messaging/ notification service.

Fig. 3

As illustrated in Fig. 3, for a MQTT notification, an enterprise needs to have messaging, which can be either MQ like or a MessageSight like appliance to

participate in a typical pub/sub mechanism.

The method and system disclosed herein converges mobile notifications from different notification systems. The method and system converges the services of different mobile notification systems such as, but not limited to, SMS, MMS, PNS and MQTT. The method and system provides for all enterprise mobile applications to be configured to a single system or even an appliance form factor.
