The GSM MMS (multimedia messaging service) allows users to
send and receive messages containing multimedia content (including images, video,
audio and text). Applications include personal messaging and delivery of
paid content. The ability to deliver efficiently paid content is
seen as an important step in allowing companies other than
GSM network operators to make money out of the service.
Multimedia Messaging Service Center (MMSC) is at the heart of
