Our journey from pioneering mobile VoIP to joining GENBAND
Since pioneering mobile Voice-over-IP communications back in 2006, we’ve had a great ride. We’ve enjoyed and driven this industry’s technological, financial and social evolution from a time in which only a few had smartphones smart enough to make the world’s first free mobile VoIP calls, to a world where consumers expect the rich services and cost savings that mobile Internet communication delivers.
We’re now very excited to join GENBAND, bringing your customers and their subscribers the mobile multimedia communications enjoyed by tens of millions of our fring users around the world, on all major smartphones and tablets, over any Internet connection.
Here’s a fun, speedy video catch-up on our exciting journey from our debut as the world’s first way to make free mobile calls over IP, to the first to enable twitter mobile in 2007, the first with VoIP calls on the iPhone (even before the launch of the App Store), and the first to bring video calls and group video to mobile.
Throughout this journey, I have been extremely proud of our innovative team of mobile developers, user experience specialists and mobile industry experts headquartered in Tel Aviv, Israel. Together we have earned accolades from global media, heralding our market leadership and rich mobile communication services.
Then in 2012 we continued our journey toward what was to become this exciting collaboration with GENBAND. We launched our white-label Telecom OTT offering for mobile and fixed carriers, enterprises and Internet Service Providers (ISPs), providing high-quality, low-cost mobile communication over Internet services.
Now, with rapid time to market leveraging our tried and tested solutions, your customers and their users will enjoy world-leading, award-winning, rich mobile communications services developed and fine-tuned over the past decade.
Through an easy-to-use, white-label service that includes capabilities for group video chat, 2-way video chat, voice-only calls and text chat, GENBAND’s integration of fring solutions empowers service providers and mobile virtual network operators (MVNOs) to compete with OTT solutions.
In addition to serving GENBAND’s customers’ unique service needs and specifications, our fring team will continue to innovate, develop and stay closely in attuned to market demands via the fring community of tens of millions of users across 200 countries, using all major smartphones and tablets (iPhone/ iPod touch/iPad, Android phones & tablets, Windows Mobile and Nokia devices) over any Internet connection ((3G/4G, Wi-Fi, GPRS, EDGE).
We’re excited to join the GENBAND team and are looking forward to continuing this great journey together.
