Barcelona, Spain, February 27, 2017 – GENBAND, a leading provider of real-time communications solutions, today announced that Kandy, its disruptive cloud communications platform, is powering Deutsche Telekom’s immmr, an innovative communications service providing a new voice and video calling experience as an Internet communication service. With Kandy as part of the immmr architecture, the service offers an integrated, real-time communications experience from the cloud allowing anyone to communicate anywhere, with anyone, on any device and any network.
“Today’s users require a next-generation communications experience and we knew that it would take a state-of-the-art partner to meet those needs,” said Judit Andrási, immmr CEO. “We selected Kandy after an extensive evaluation as its advanced capabilities enable us to deliver a cloud service that redefines communication services. immmr is now live and providing carrier-network integrated Internet communication in Slovakia. We look forward to introducing the immmr proposition in additional countries in the coming months.”
By moving mobile communications into the cloud, immmr allows users to leverage a mobile number from any device and without being tied to a specific SIM card, opening up a new era of digital communications.
“Having one of the world’s largest and most prestigious carriers select Kandy for its groundbreaking new service is a significant achievement,” said David Walsh, CEO and Chairman, GENBAND. “Just two years after launching Kandy, we’re further validating our mission, which is to empower our customers and enable them to quickly launch innovative services, create new revenue streams, enhance their customer relationships and deliver a superior experience by bolting Kandy onto their network and building upon it.”
immmr leverages Kandy for its real-time communications needs including voice calls, group video messaging and more, while also availing itself of a complete suite of operational tools comprising service rating, billing and monitoring. Additionally, the Kandy deployment provides the security and privacy assurances required by Germany’s stringent security and privacy regulations, among the strictest in the world.
“We’ve been working with the immmr team from the very beginning to closely align our product features and functions to their needs,” added David Hiscock, GENBAND’s SVP of EMEA Sales. “Leveraging Kandy gives them the additional flexibility of white-labeling our cloud-based, turnkey mobile apps for quick Time to Market, and developing the custom apps that best meet their users’ needs via our APIs and SDKs for continued innovation.”
