Subspace | November 19, 2021
Subspace, the dedicated network for the world's most popular real-time services, announced that its private network built for real-time applications is now available worldwide.This network-as-a-service (NaaS) enables companies to create experiences that surpass those limited by latency and other issues with the existing internet, particularly the real-time video and audio experiences that are at the forefront of modern communication and metaverse enablement. With COVID-19 revealing digital communication issues worldwide, Subspace's network is a readymade solution for a multitude of industries where "right now" demand will only increase - gaming, telemedicine, financial markets, online betting, and more - and for the onset of the metaverse.
CEO and founder Bayan Towfiq started Subspace in 2018; today, the company has 400 million users on its network. The company quickly helped gaming partners reduce lag, reach a larger audience, and increase security before realizing they'd effectively built a parallel internet that puts high-traffic applications on their own network, ensuring the fastest and most stable path for instant experiences.
Shahin Farshchi, partner at Lux Capital and a member of Subspace's board, sees the company at the forefront of the need for real-time applications.
"We're in a new phase today with real-time applications,And to go beyond that, to realize the Metaverse, there needs to be availability of real-time applications through technologies and products such as Subspace. The world now requires a new kind of internet built for instant experience and connectivity."
-Shahin Farshchi, partner at Lux Capital
Towfiq agrees and says that the demand for instant experiences is growing across industries. "We offer the only solution for contact center and BPO markets, voice/video chat in CX and UCaaS and CPaaS spaces. Research shows that the demand for a reliable, stable, and fast real-time network will explode over the next few years, particularly as we move to an increasingly metaverse world. Those who aren't looking for solutions today will be left behind."
While the average 20 millisecond delay doesn't impact tasks like the arrival of an email, every fraction of a second counts for the internet globally. Subspace's network pulls gaming traffic off the internet close to users and ensures the fastest and most stable path - and lets existing games and internet applications bring private networking to every internet connected device without changes to code, VPN clients, or on-premise hardware
With the Subspace NaaS platform, developers can build their internet application on Subspace and deploy in a matter of minutes. The below features of the dedicated network used by the enterprise companies are now accessible, self-service, by any application.
PacketAccelerator delivers latency improvements of up to 80% and reduces jitter and packet loss by 99% while eliminating DDoS, all with one simple connection.
SIPteleport provides optimization to deliver high-quality, consistent voice and video streams to users worldwide with no client or server hardware.
GlobalTURN offers edge-to-edge acceleration with DDoS protection without the expense and hassles of multiple TURN servers.
"Subspace is to the network as Akamai was to content delivery and Amazon was to compute. The massive number of real-time applications pushing non-cacheable content can now function for the first time at peak capacity, and the pace and economic efficiency with which Subspace has created one of the world's largest networks is astounding, deploying internet POPs around the world at a cost 100 times less than today's standard."
-Sam Teller, partner at Valor Equity Partners
Launched in 2018, Subspace provides real-time application developers and companies with a NaaS platform to operate, deploy, and scale their applications. Its groundbreaking network infrastructure and services platform provides the lowest latency, most reliable and secure real-time performance on a fully controllable network ready for today's internet applications. On Subspace, customers see the difference, moving toward a world with instant communications and powerful internet connections. The metaverse is coming; Subspace delivers the experience today's real-time users around the world deserve.
Xcom | November 25, 2020
Xcom, the San Diego-based startup made by a few previous high level Qualcomm chiefs, is planning to test progressed MIMO advances running on open RAN interfaces with gear from Baicell in an indoor field in Sacramento, California.
The subtleties of Xcom's tests were remembered for a recording by the organization to the FCC.
"We've built up an innovation to fundamentally improve the phantom effectiveness of frameworks that utilization sub6 [GHz] range, and this specific recording identifies with our having the option to extend our preliminary framework," clarified Matt Grob, Xcom's CTO and Qualcomm's previous CTO, in messaged reactions to inquiries from Light Reading.
In particular, the organization said it's hoping to test how its serious MIMO innovation – a recieving wire plan that has been generally promoted as drastically improving the general limit and execution of a remote organization – contrasts and the current LTE and Wi-Fi networks as of now working in the arena. The organization said its new model radios will be introduced in similar areas as Wi-Fi hotspots, and can uphold countless clients without causing impedance. The organization said its organization will run in the recently liberated 3.5GHz CBRS range band.
The improvement is essential as it gives one of only a handful few public experiences into Xcom's exercises. The organization was established in 2018 by a few prominent Qualcomm chiefs, including previous CEO Paul Jacobs, following Jacobs' bombed endeavor to fund-raise for an offer to take Qualcomm private.
Xcom last made waves around a year prior when it gained M87, a Seattle-zone organizing startup drove by previous T-Mobile leader Cole Brodman. M87 was dealing with an innovation that would permit standard cellphones to send interchanges from close by clients – for instance, a client somewhere down in the core of a structure, outside of the scope of an organization association, could bob their sign off other close by clients through a work network plan to interface with the Internet.
Syniverse | February 07, 2022
Syniverse, “the world’s most connected company”®, announced it is working with Vodafone Oman to enable 5G roaming services in the Sultanate of Oman. Vodafone is one of the world’s largest telecommunications companies and has partner operations with mobile networks in 41 countries. Syniverse is a premier global technology provider of mission-critical mobile platforms for carriers and enterprises.
Vodafone Oman will benefit from Syniverse’s Clearing and Settlement solution to drive efficiencies by using a robust set of cloud applications designed to automate and optimize all workflows needed by Vodafone Oman to address its 5G roaming business.
Vodafone Oman will also benefit from Syniverse’s Roaming Fraud Protection and Syniverse’s Universal Commerce for BCE solutions to monetize wholesale roaming traffic using the GSMA’s Billing and Charging Evolution (BCE) industry standard. Universal Commerce for BCE is an industry-leading blockchain based solution which enables new 5G enabled monetization models such as network slicing, and monetization of new 5G enabled use cases such as the internet of Things (IoT).
Universal Commerce for BCE also permits reports between Vodafone Oman and mobile operators to be exchanged upon previously agreed bilateral agreements for use in support of wholesale invoicing and settlement.
By implementing these new methods for monetizing wholesale roaming, Syniverse allows for more accurate and efficient reconciliation of network usage between Vodafone Oman and its roaming partners.
In August 2021, Syniverse announced its plan to go public through a merger agreement with M3-Brigade Acquisition II Corp. (NYSE: MBAC). On January 10, 2022, Syniverse and MBAC announced that MBAC’s special meeting of shareholders to approve the merger is scheduled to be held on February 9, 2022. On January 7, 2022, MBAC commenced mailing of its definitive proxy statement to its shareholders of record as of January 6, 2022. Upon closing of the transaction, the renamed Syniverse Technologies Corporation will be listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker “SYNV.”
“Syniverse adds value by offering Vodafone Oman streamlined workflow management tools that underpin the support of their 5G roaming services, thus making it more efficient and profitable for them to grow their business. We are excited to help Vodafone Oman prosper as the newest mobile operator in the Sultanate of Oman. Syniverse continues to invest in Middle East and Africa region as a strategic growth area with our strong market presence.”
