Deal Expands Onvoy’s Wireless, Messaging, and OTT Voice Infrastructure via REST APIs
MINNEAPOLIS, MN – October 19, 2015 – Onvoy, LLC, a fast-growing leader in wholesale telecommunication services, just announced the acquisition of Layered Communications, a communications enabler for OTTs, voice service providers and MVNOs.
Onvoy continues its pursuit to become a next generation Global Communications Enabler. “The Layered Communication acquisition accelerates Onvoy’s ability to offer wholesale customers an API based service fulfillment and instant provisioning interface to Onvoy’s carrier class service,” said Fritz Hendricks, Onvoy President, “Layered’ s service creation platform provides immediate access to the fast growing Wireless and Over the Top (OTT) markets while providing a web based framework for continuous innovation.” The purchase of Layered Communications underscores the company’s commitment to next-generation technology and to assisting customers in continuously transforming the communication paradigm in order to keep up with consumer demand.
What Layered Communications adds to the Onvoy portfolio: an automated communications OSS based on REST APIs that enables voice, messaging and mobility service provisioning, including wireless porting; Coreview, a web-based portal built on the Layered OSS APIs; and Layered’s API-based services that support rapid deployment of mobility, mobile VoIP and messaging services.
As a result, Onvoy’s customers will soon be able to add voice, messaging and mobility services to their communication applications more quickly via APIs and carrier interfaces. These interfaces enable customers to build, provision and support more innovative communication services without adding equipment or support staff – which means faster speed to market and higher margins.
“API-based platforms providing control of the core communications infrastructure for voice, messaging and mobility are essential for our customers to innovate today and tomorrow,” said Surendra Saboo, Onvoy EVP and COO.
Cloud-based communication services coupled with Onvoy’s coast-to-coast coverage and reputation for expert, hands-on customer service help Onvoy to better serve the changing needs of their customers, large to small.
Layered Communications, CEO, Michael Remacle is energized by Onvoy’s ambitious growth strategy. “Onvoy has been a great partner of ours for many years and we are excited to join the team to help drive innovation, enhance self-service options and open new markets for our customers,” said Remacle.
