Is there a recommended technology for creating an MMS gateway (to a mail server) ?
The External Application Interface (EAIF) seems to be the easiest way for development, but it seems that every customer using such a gateway would have to ask the provider for special routing configuration in an MMSC.
Is the EAIF concept a standard, or is it Nokia specific ?
Will the Java library work only with the Nokia MMSC ?
At this point every MMSC vendor has it's own interface to MMSC (Like Nokia has the EAIF) 3GPP is creating a specification for MMSC interfacing. The interface is called MM7. Only future will show if/when all vendors will implement this new interface.
