Jibe’s CEO, Amir Sarhangi, to participate on Telecom Council’s Unpanel on The Rising Tide of Messaging. Telecom Council’s Unpanel will start with audience input on the agenda, then the panelists address the topics in an interactive format.
Can the rising tide of messaging float all boats? The stage is set for a battle between OTT providers, classic portals, and the carriers. The players include service providers, infrastructure companies, app developers, game developers, and even device makers, and the first wave of winners and losers is behind us.

Today, Jibe announced that Deutsche Telekom’s regional operating companies in Romania and Slovakia, COSMOTE Romania and Slovak Telekom, rolled out their joyn services developed by Jibe Mobile and delivered over the Jibe IP Communication Cloud. joyn powered by COSMOTE and joyn by Telekom, provided by Jibe Mobile, let customers use a single application to connect via video call, text, instant messaging, group messaging, as well as share their favorite photos and videos — on their iPhone and Android™- powered smartphones. joyn encourages even more customers, using Android and iPhone smartphones, to embrace and take advantage of 4G/LTE speed and quality.
This week, we announced that TMC has named Jibe’s IP communications messaging service, Messaging Plus, as a 2014 Unified Communications Product of the Year Award winner. Sprint launched Messaging Plus, its RCS service powered by Jibe Mobile, in late 2013 and is now pre-loading Messaging Plus on nearly all new Android-powered smartphones. Messaging Plus has been given a 4-star rating by Android and iPhone users in Google Play and the Apple App Store.
“This honor is a validation of Jibe’s IP Communication Cloud and our commitment to helping carriers launch innovative consumer applications which are competitive and relevant,” said…
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.
“What this tells us is the cloud and WebRTC are major themes that carriers are migrating to in order to lower cost and…
This week, Jibe Mobile will demonstrate its RCS cloud services at GSMA Mobile Asia Expo’s Connected City June 11 – 13 in Shanghai.

The 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. Their participation had the desired affect as attendees from almost all of the major operators made themselves available for the keynote from Kobus and subsequent panel with Phil. 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…
We 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…
We 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…
