MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., July 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Jibe Mobile (www.jibemobile.com), the Silicon Valley cloud-based global communications provider, announced today that joyn by Jibe has received a 2013 TMC Labs Innovation Award from INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine. Winners of the 2013 TMC Labs Innovation Awards are highlighted in the July/August 2013 issue of INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine at http://bit.ly/164FHD3.
"Jibe has developed the world's first open technology platform leveraging the most advanced telecom industry standards—including GSMA joyn™ and RCS 5—and joyn by Jibe is accelerating the adoption of joyn, enabling the telecommunications industry to embrace cloud-based infrastructure to innovate and deliver new communication services faster," said Amir Sarhangi, CEO, Jibe Mobile. "By selecting Jibe, carriers can give subscribers the ability to make video calls over any mobile network, group chat with friends, and make free Wi-Fi calls by simply using Jibe's RCS mobile app to connect to Jibe's Global Communications Cloud."
joyn by Jibe enables subscribers to invite contacts in their address books who are on any global network to download a joyn™-compliant client onto their phone, tablet, or device and begin connecting with enriched services. The downloadable client helps bridge the interoperability gap and address the fundamental challenge of mass adoption by enabling carriers that have yet to deploy RCS to offer joyn's enriched features to their subscribers.
Now in its fourteenth year, the TMC Labs Innovations Award honors products and services that display true innovation and have advanced the IP Communications industry. Winners were selected by the TMC Labs team and the editors of INTERNET TELEPHONY.
"Jibe Mobile's open cloud-based approach to IP network interoperability for carriers and consumers around the world distinguishes them as a true, and early, leader in the world of mobile communications," said Tom Keating, TMC Labs Founder and TMC CTO. "joyn by Jibe is a significant step forward in helping global carriers to bring unified rich communications services to market that will position them ahead of the curve."
"I would like to congratulate Jibe Mobile for winning the prestigious TMC Labs Innovation Award," said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. "joyn by Jibe marks a major breakthrough for mobile telecommunications carriers and their subscribers, and I look forward to seeing what Jibe Mobile comes up with next."
