Jibe has been an early leader bringing together WebRTC and mobile. We first made the decision in 2012 to incorporate WebRTC technologies into our platform. Then, in 2013 Jibe launched the world’s first telco cloud using WebRTC to deliver commercial IP Communications services, launching Messaging Plus for Sprint.

At WebRTC 2014 in Atlanta this week, TMC’s Rich Tehrani interviewed Jibe’s Neil McGrath. In the interview, Neil explains Jibe’s commercial deployment of WebRTC to enable iPhone and Android IP Communications, and further explains that Jibe is using WebRTC to enable each Jibe Mobile endpoint.

kobus-philThe RCS Summit in Dallas this past week was a particularly star studded affair with Jibe customers Kobus Schmidt from Deutsche Telekom and Phil Carter from Vodafone, two of the key drivers for the European RCS industry talking and presenting at the start of the show.

AT&T, Verizon, Telus, Rogers, US Cellular, Union Wireless, MTS and others benefitted from Kobus’ inspired keynote From Muffins to Cupcakes.

Kobus explained that RCS is a service layer, and while the functionalities being launched across Europe right now were in response to OTT…

facebook-newsletter0003We thought last year was big for Jibe, but 2014 started even stronger. In January, Jibe received yet another recognition for its product excellence, TMC’s Internet Telephony 2014 Product of the Year. At Mobile World Congress in Spain we announced the Jibe Hub with Deutsche Telekom. Jibe’s Hub now enables out-of-the-box interconnect for all Jibe Private Cloud customers, a significantly faster and more cost-effective approach for any carrier. But most exciting has been the number of new carriers aggressively pursuing RCS with plans to quickly launch messaging and video services. Why the urgency? The whopping $19 Billion Jibe’s… Click here to continue…

webrtc_rcs_logoWe made the decision back in the fall of 2012 to further embrace internet technologies for telco use and we haven’t looked back since. Jibe is operating the world’s first and only WebRTC/IMS/RCS Gateway. Jibe is powering Sprint’s Messaging Plus IP Communications Service in North America along with launching Deutsche Telekom and other European carriers.

From Jibe’s vantage point, we see WebRTC exploding in adoption this year, enabling multi-device services, and providing easy access for developers to bring significant new innovation into mobile operators’ services pipeline. Combining WebRTC with RCS and IMS to complement each other’s weaknesses is a prudent, yet…

The foundation of communications everywhere is openness and reach. To achieve this, it’s vitally important for the future of IP voice, messaging and video communications that interoperability between operators is ensured. Jibe has been an early advocate of the RCS standards since we co-wrote the e-drafts of RCS, and this certification is another important milestone.

Jibe’s private cloud and public cloud networks were awarded Hot-Fix accreditation by the GSMA. Jibe engaged in the accreditation process on behalf of its customers using OEM clients in addition to our own, to…

blogThe big industry news going into Mobile World Congress was the Facebook’s acquisition of WhatsApp. The move as Sprint’s CEO Dan Hesse put it, “shows just how valuable the wireless space is.”

So what does this mean for RCS and Jibe?

In talking with all our current (and future) customers, carriers agree that there is huge value in mobile and great innovation at the heart of delivering new IP services to consumers.

Carrier adoption was given a huge boost by China Mobile’s announcement of their commitment to launch RCS to their subscribers. As the world’s largest mobile network operator by subscribers, China Mobile will bring 760 million very welcome new members to the global RCS community. This will be…
