By Anil Sharma, TMCnet Contributor
Telcentris, Inc., a company specializing in unified cloud communications and the creator of VoxOx (News - Alert) and VoxOx In Business, has introduced its VoxOx For Operators program aimed at empowering Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) and other service providers to economically deliver comprehensive suite of Rich Communication Services (RCS) and Over-The-Top (OTT) cloud applications and features.
Officials with Telcentris (News - Alert) said that the VoxOx For Operators program enables operators to neutralize the OTT threat by providing immediate access to white-labelable, carrier-grade services, applications and features that include and surpass the RCS 5.1 feature set.
Company officials said that this revenue-sharing partnership program, which exploits client-based provisioning and the “network effect,” offers mobile operators and service providers a first-to-market advantage to deliver innovative functionality, such as intelligent call routing, language translation, voicemail transcription, fax, personal assistant, business VoIP services such as hosted IP-PBX (News - Alert), and other disruptive cloud services.
According to company officials, the program eliminates technology and infrastructure risk by allowing clients to build, scale and monetize powerful mobile and fixed-line solutions anywhere in world without capital expenditure and little upfront investment. These consumer and business-to-business applications can be delivered using the operator’s own brand via white labeling or co-branding options.
“With the popularity of smartphones and over-the-top apps such as Skype (News - Alert), WhatsApp and VoxOx, operators have experienced a significant displacement of voice and messaging revenues,” said Bryan Hertz, CEO of Telcentris, in a statement.
“However, operators can neutralize the threat of OTT services by white labeling their own mobile VoIP applications and features that go beyond RCS and marketing them to their customer base as well as industry-wide,” said Hertz.
Hertz said that the company sees a mutually beneficial opportunity to work with operators, rather than against them, and that is the purpose of the new VoxOx For Operators program.
