Ground Breaker Award for Engineering Excellence
This award is offered to the company that has produced the most impressive technological advancements. These are the firms who have invested in R&D, and have turned the gears of progress through sweat, tenacity, and lots of caffeine.
"To compete on the same playing field as OTT players, carriers need to adopt a telecom cloud approach and move to a single vendor model to simplify interconnect inside their own networks. We are already seeing a strong interest from carriers to consolidate and virtualize their infrastructure in the cloud," said Elmar Weber, CTO Jibe Mobile. "There is no faster, more cost effective and reliable way for them to launch new RCS services and interconnect with other RCS service providers than with Jibe's Global IP Communications Cloud. Jibe Mobile has the end-to-end product to significantly reduce both risk and time to market when delivering interoperable RCS services across mobile networks."
