TECHNOLOGY AREAS

 

 

The Center for Wireless Multimedia Communications has been actively involved in research and development projects with industry. This includes the development of industrial prototypes of wireless communication systems and services in cooperation with industry; as well as strategic and technology planning in information and communication technologies. One of the major industry collaborators of the Center is the Mobile Communications Company of Iran.

 

 

One of the projects of the Center, which is now offered as a software as a service (SAAS) product is SIMAH. SIMAH is the official communication and evaluation platform of the Iran Conference on Electrical & Computer Engineering, 2012.

SIMAH: Mobile Messaging and Polling for the Green Organization

 

SIMAH is an integrated system developed at the Center for WMC to facilitate internal communications within organizations and conferences. SIMAH is provided as a SAAS (Software As A Service) product to the companies seeking for the easiest way to improve their internal and external communications.

 

SIMAH is amazingly simple to use and consists of two parts: a web application and a mobile application. Through the web application, it is possible to send messages and forms for announcements, evaluations, polling and so on. It also includes simple ways to resend the messages and forms, and create various reports.

 

The communicated messages may be distinguished in different categories and targeted to the desired audience. The users may be categorized in groups directly or may form their own networks of users. These groups could be for example, staff of a particular department, or participants of a specific day in an exhibition.

 

According to the various types of services that SIMAH presents, we categorize them into three packages:

 

SIMAH EVENT: Anonymous Polling for gathering and events

  • To use in temporary events, like conferences and exhibitions
  • Sending polling forms to the participants
  • Communicating the event news and announcements to desired target audience
  • Facilitating group activities for more engagement of the attendees within the event

 

SIMAH ENTERPRISE: Enterprise Communication Management System

  • To use in the companies and organizations, where all of their users are registered and have an account on SIMAH
  • Sending evaluation forms to desired users
  • Communicating organization news, via email, normal text message and SIMAH message
  • Organizing and scheduling meetings
  • Paging staff

 

SIMAH ACADEMIC: Academic Communication Management System

  • To use in school and universities, where all the students are registered and have an account on SIMAH
  • Sending evaluation forms (for example for evaluation of TAs, instructors, events, etc.)
  • Holding quizzes (containing multiple choice, numerical and word answer type questions)
  • Communicating academic news, via email, normal text message and SIMAH message
  • Arranging meetings and gatherings such as makeup lecture sessions and tutorial sessions
  • Paging students and staff
