Mobile World Congress 2012 Write up

Just came back from Mobile World Congress 2012 in Barcelona and it was hectic. I actually didn't saw any of the shows or announcements apart from Joyn, the commercial name for RCS-e,  as I was fully booked in advance with meetings for all days which was made it so good for me, TeleStax and the Mobicents Community. If you want a good write up you can read Alan Quayle's blog post about it where he mentions that one of the companies to watch out there is Solaiemes.

Solaiemes which I was pleased to meet face to face and see live demos from  their products based on Mobicents and is also an active Mobicents contributor, contributing AS7 integration to Mobicents SIP Servlets. You can read their views on Joyn on their blog.

But first things first, I would like to THANK our partner ATES Networks who following on our recent joint press release invited us, TeleStax to join and copresent at the event with them. They were equally full of meetings where they showcased there awesome selfcare demo who lighted the eyes of many telco operators. 

Their booth was not very far away from OpenCloud, which gave me the chance to meet first time face to face with their CTO David Ferry and JAIN SLEE specification lead and discuss together TeleStax commitment to continue helping evolve both JAIN SLEE and SIP Servlets standards and sharing our views on each standard as well as a coming surprise from them ;-)

I had also the chance to meet our community, notably Solaiemes which I mentioned above, with Aayush Bhatangar from Rancore Technologies which built their SDP for 4G Networks on Mobicents, Iskratel who based their VoIP VAS on Mobicents, ElitCluster who chose to use Mobicents for their Open source Intelligent Network/SDP/BSS for Effortel, a Belgium MNVE, PeopleFone a Swiss based VoIP Provider offering their services based on Mobicents in 5 different countries, hSenid Mobile whose flagship product mChoice® SDP is based on Mobicents. I had the chance to see video conferencing demos of two video conferencing servers, one from Sergio Garcia Murillo with Medooze and their open source MCU Media Server and Naeva Tec with Kurento both fronted by Mobicents SIP Servlets. I also met with Maarten Ectors, Head of Cloud and Disruptive Innovation in Europe at Nokia Siemens Networks and influent blogger at the blog and chat about the next plans for RestComm, our Telco 2.0 SaaS

I wish I had the time to meet all the people and companies present there using/interesting in Mobicents that I couldn't meet because I was full. If I missed you feel free to ping me offline once again to meet at another telco event.

I had the time on friday before leaving to make a quick jump at the beautiful Sagrada Familia started in  1882 and still under construction with an anticipated completion date of 2026 which is probably the best piece of architecture I ever saw as you can witness below
