Enables carriers to expose their networks to developers and build Mobile OTT Services to drive return on cloud investments and engage developers

We’re delighted to offer this turnkey solution to members of the GCN. The ability to auto-scale Mobile VoIP infrastructure creates a unique competitive advantage for carriers around the world including Mobile First markets

Voxeo Labs, a San Francisco based technology company leading the industry in real-time carrier APIs, today announced that it has joined the Global Cloud Network (GCN), an alliance of mobile carriers that run their cloud on Joyent’s SmartDataCenter fabric. In joining the GCN, Voxeo Labs will help lead the delivery of the world’s first Mobile PaaS.

Voxeo Labs exposes communication APIs as standalone infrastructure for Mobile OTTs looking to become Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNOs), or as a complement to existing IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) and network API strategies of Mobile Network Operators (MNOs). With this announcement, Voxeo Labs is making its entire suite of products available to the GCN, enabling carrier members to build real-time mobile services and attract innovation from a growing ecosystem of developers using Voxeo Labs technologies.

Progressive carriers like Deutsche Telekom have understood the need to expose their networks through this type of innovation. For example, the launch of the Telekom Tropo API over the summer, built on Voxeo Labs technologies, gives web and mobile developers access to lucrative new geographies in partnership with an industry giant.

“We’re delighted to offer this turnkey solution to members of the GCN. The ability to auto-scale Mobile VoIP infrastructure creates a unique competitive advantage for carriers around the world including Mobile First markets.” said Jose de Castro, CTO of Voxeo Labs.

Joyent selected Voxeo Labs as the exclusive Telco API technology provider for the GCN, given that the Voxeo Labs platform is the only one to effectively expose the carrier network to the global community of developers. This unique advantage provides the Mobile First carrier markets with a great new opportunity, allowing carriers to extend smart phone style services and capabilities to feature phones.

"Voxeo Labs is leading the market in carrier network exposure and allowing those carriers to quickly enable rich media services on the GCN. This is a powerful combination that gives Mobile OTTs and Mobile First carriers an unfair advantage." said Jason Hoffman, founder and CTO, Joyent.

“Carriers have invested billions in their network, but that value is locked for third party developers and even for the carrier’s own development organizations. Our platform unlocks the network’s value by exposing APIs on the core network and enabling developers to monetize their ideas. While other vendors are contemplating how they want to enter this space, we are blazing the trail with compelling solutions to satisfy the demand in the market,” says Voxeo Labs President, Jason Goecke.

“We selected Voxeo Labs because of their clear industry thought leadership and their ability to execute. Not only have they delivered a compelling technology platform, but they also are leaders in such key industry initiatives as WebRTC,” say Joyent’s VP of the GCN and Mobile First Markets, Jim Blom.
