MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., June 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Jibe Mobile, the IP communications cloud company, today announced that it will demonstrate its RCS cloud services at GSMA Mobile Asia Expo's Connected City June 11 – 13 in Shanghai. Jibe Mobile's end-to-end IP platform (including the public cloud, private cloud, communications client, RCS hub, and telco-web gateway) is built for carriers to launch 'the new native' experience for mobile consumers everywhere, rivaling the best OTT has to offer. Jibe's IP Communications Cloud supports industry standards (including WebRTC, RCS, joyn™) and interoperability enabling carriers to deliver rich IP-based communications services — video calling, group chat, and large media-file sharing.
Jibe's cloud-based approach allows mobile carriers to launch RCS solutions quickly. The private cloud is used to enable operators with their own RCS service while the public cloud is for subscribers of carriers that have not implemented RCS. Jibe also offers IP communications carrier clients that users can download, can be preinstalled, or can be installed as the native messaging client by OEMs. The communication client can be white label carrier branded. Sprint launched Messaging Plus, its RCS service powered by Jibe Mobile, in late 2013 and is now pre-loading Messaging Plus on most new Android-powered smartphones.
Deutsche Telekom and other multi-national carriers announced in February they are deploying RCS services hosted by Jibe in European markets and are benefiting from the fast, efficient roll-out and interconnection via Jibe's RCS Hub to other European carriers.
