MNOs must be more adventurous - OpenCloud

Friday 16 November 2012 | 12:59 CET | Author: Bart Garvelink | Background
An open platform for service development reduces complexity and time-to-market, OpenCloud argues. The UK-based company supplies its Rhino platform to four mobile operators in Poland. They have developed a number of voice and messaging services, from basic prepaid offers to advanced apps such as instant messaging. Recently, the operators have begun releasing common APIs to three universities and the nascent developer community. Telcos must become more adventurous to succeed in a increasingly competitive and fast-paced market, OpenCloud spokesman Mark Windle says.
