Abstract

Instant messaging (IM) services have grown dramatically in recent years. In telephone networks, short message service keeps dominating mobile data services. As the rise of nomadic need, to bridge both messaging services is becoming a promising niche. In this paper we propose an infrastructure, based on the XML-based protocol, XMPP, to simplify the interconnections and enable the legacy handsets for instant message service. Although there is another competitive approach, SIMPLE, based on SIP, we will analyze how the XMPP is to outdo SIMPLE.
