MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Nov. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Jibe Mobile www.jibemobile.com, the Cloud Communications Company for Mobile Operators, today announced that it has been selected as a 2014 World Communication Awards finalist for Best Cloud Infrastructure. The World Communication Awards recognize the companies that are driving the leading innovations and breakthrough new services in the communications industry. The winners of this prestigious award will be announced on December 2nd at the Lancaster London Hotel.
This nomination follows recent recognition honoring Jibe's RCS Hub and Global IP Communications Cloud messaging service by the 2014 Unified Communications Product of the Year Award, 2014 INTERNET TELEPHONY Product of the Year Award, 2013 TMC Labs Innovation Award and 2013 Telecom Council SPIFFY Groundbreaker Award for Engineering Excellence.
"We are honored that Jibe has been selected as a World Communication Awards Cloud Infrastructure finalist for our hosted IP messaging service. As the leader in cloud hosted RCS, Jibe provides the only open end-to-end technology platform enabling carriers to rapidly launch and efficiently deliver the most innovative IP communication services to mobile consumers globally," said Amir Sarhangi, CEO Jibe Mobile.
"This distinction underscores the telecom industry's recognition of Jibe's important role in disrupting traditional infrastructure vendors in order to provide the proven infrastructure for operators to rapidly launch, globally connect, and integrate rich next generation IP communication services with SMS/MMS over LTE and WiFi around the world."
Jibe's Carrier Cloud Strategy
Jibe's IP platform delivers the only cloud-based service allowing carriers around the world to quickly and easily put new innovative standards-based IP services in place that interwork with existing legacy services. Jibe's hosted service also provides hybrid-OTT services to deliver 100% service availability for all subscribers until each carrier in region launches their next-generation IP services, the RCS Hub to interconnect Carriers around the world with SMS-like ubiquity, and the ability to continually iterate Carriers' 'best of' messaging services -- based on careful planning and customer feedback -- to deliver the 'best in market' messaging services that drive business.
Jibe's IP Communications Cloud
The company's end-to-end IP Communications Cloud -- which can be hosted or run 'on premise' to achieve even greater cost savings and efficiencies -- helps to eliminate technology fragmentation both within and across mobile carriers. Jibe's Cloud enables carriers to launch their rich new RCS/joyn messaging services in 6 to 10 weeks, vs. traditional implementation times of up to 18 months and then iterate their service features in 2-3 week innovation cycles to continually enhance service value to their subscribers. The Jibe Cloud provides complete localization of language, brand and color, and features for each specific market.
Jibe's end-to-end IP Communications Cloud includes the Jibe Public Cloud, Private Cloud, brandable 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.
Leveraging Jibe's end-to-end cloud, RCS Hub and white label messaging client, Sprint launched its Messaging Plus RCS service powered by Jibe Mobile in the United States in late 2013, and is now preloading its Messaging Plus client on most new Android-powered smartphones. Sprint's Messaging Plus service lets Android and iPhone consumers use a single application to connect with family and friends on any wireless carrier in the United States, Canada and Mexico via text, instant messaging, group messaging, and video chat, as well as sharing of photos and videos.
Deutsche Telekom announced at Mobile World Congress in February that they would be deploying RCS services hosted by Jibe in European markets to benefit from the fast, efficient roll-out and interconnection via Jibe's Cloud and RCS Hub to their regional operating companies. Deutsche Telekom's regional operating companies in Romania and Slovakia rolled out joyn services developed by Jibe Mobile and delivered over the Jibe IP Communication Cloud in Q2 2004.
