Once a campaign is created and approved, the platform sends out messages based on the available throughput and preferences. The campaign owners (operators and customers) receive campaign related notifications and status updates according to the defined schedule and/or occurrence of events like start/end of campaign and abnormal terminations.

Administrators can monitor and moderate campaigns created by operators.

How-Blazon-Works

Blazon is a carrier-grade Mobile Campaign Manager having the following core components:

Access Channel Manager

The access channel manager works at the network abstraction layer of the Blazon MCM platform. It enables the Blazon platform to make use of the available access channels; primarily SMS over the SMPP protocol for campaign broadcast. MMS broadcast is also supported by the platform.

BSS/OSS Gateway

The BSS/OSS gateway enables the Blazon platform to integrate with subsystems; e.g. CRM, IN, Mediation etc. in order to acquire subscriber groups for various campaigns, perform SMS MT charging etc.

API and Application Enabler

The Blazon API provides third party applications to make use of the Blazon platform through simple SOAP XML interfaces. API is particularly useful for configuring the Blazon platform as a business/bulk SMS tool for corporate customers of Mobile Network Operators.

Blazon-API-Application

Blazon integrates with Mobile Network Operator’s SMSC over the SMPP protocol and makes use of the capacity allocated at its LAs in the most optimized fashion.

Following is a block-level view of the Blazon architecture:

Blazon-Architecture

Blazon requires integration with SMSC over the SMPP protocol. The platform inherently supports SMS MT charging through LA. For web GUI access, connectivity through DMZ is required, while the platform offers a comprehensive API for 3rd party services, vendors and customers etc.

Blazon platform is capable of broadcasting an unlimited number of messages with an unlimited number of campaigns. Only limitations are enforced by the capacity/throughput provided by the SMSC. The architecture makes intelligent use of the resources at its disposal meeting requirements of the most demanding situations.
