South Korea telco is to launch joyn RCS services in the country in less than two weeks. By Tammy Parker.
SK Telecom will launch joyn-branded Rich Communication Services (RCS) before the end of this year. Byun Jae-woan, SK Telecom’s CTO and head of its technology division, confirmed that the plan is still on schedule.
Though not providing specifics regarding the product offering, Byun said the service “will feature a number of new functions added to the RCS-e standard under the GSMA’s joyn brand”.
Other operators that have launched joyn-branded services this year include Deutsche Telekom, Orange, Vodafone and MetroPCS, which broke ranks with the Europeans by launching with the more-advanced RCS 5 technology rather than RCS-e. Joyn is being used in Europe primarily as an over-the-top (OTT) messaging platform for carriers.
