Jibe's Proven Carrier Cloud Strategy
Jibe's cloud-based approach allows mobile carriers to launch RCS solutions quickly. Jibe Mobile's cloud-based platform includes a public cloud, private cloud, communications client, RCS hub, and telco-web gateway 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.
The company's end-to-end IP communications cloud helps to eliminate technology fragmentation both within and across mobile carriers. Jibe's Private Cloud allows carriers to rapidly launch cost-effective RCS services to their subscribers, and Jibe's Public Cloud provides ubiquitous reach for subscribers of those carriers that have yet to support RCS. Jibe's Cloud also includes 'white label IP clients' providing the interface to Android and iOS mobile consumers, and enhancing their everyday mobile experience. Sprint launched Messaging Plus RCS service powered by Jibe Mobile in the United States in late 2013, and is now pre-loading Messaging Plus on most new Android-powered smartphones.
About Jibe's RCS Hub
Beginning to roll out through Europe, Jibe's RCS Hub addresses the challenge facing the telecom industry, how to quickly connect and interconnect carriers with established RCS communications services — hosted or in-network, IMS or pre-IMS networks — to deliver the most innovative IP communications service, as well as the world's more than 6 billion mobile subscribers as part of their everyday experience.
Jibe's RCS Hub is a carrier-grade interconnection platform that provides access to the global community of RCS and joyn carriers via a single interconnection. Instead of each carrier building a complex web of interconnections directly against their own network, a single connection to Jibe's RCS Hub gives carriers access to all other Hub-connected carriers.
The Jibe RCS Hub reduces both the technical complexity of interconnection and the level of fragmentation across the telecommunications industry, resulting in significantly reduced cost & time-to-market for carriers. A single, standards-based connection from a carrier to Jibe's RCS Hub supports interconnectivity with any other Hub-connected carrier.
