Globility’s take on Mobile IM is to use it as a flexible conduit for delivering data to mobile devices. The Globility libraries may be embedded into third party applications to offer chat as a service. Additionally however they can be used for a far wider range of delivery capabilities. As an example the secure delivery of Trade requests and alerts have been sent to users over the Globility Mobile IM network.
Globility has also invested heavily in a XMPP Secure Connection Manager. This solution provides an XMPP security layer, a load balancer and finally a session manager to maintain sessions on a fluctuating Mobile Network all in a single box.
