announce a strategic partnership designed to expand and improve communications options worldwide. The partnership combines the respective strengths of the two companies and promises consumers the most innovative, relevant and reliable products, at the lowest possible costs, both now and for years to come. The agreement also delivers significant advantages to both companies as they expand voice and text messaging services for consumers, further bridge the web and the phone, and monetize a variety of services in the media channel.
The news comes as both companies work on significant new initiatives. As JAJAH increasingly becomes the industry's platform of choice worldwide, Jangl is developing services for several new partners, as well as Google's OpenSocial. Both companies expect to make more detailed statements soon.
Under the terms of the agreement, Jangl and JAJAH will collaborate on strategic development and emerging products, which will be announced as they become available. More immediately:
- Jangl will leverage JAJAH's telephony infrastructure to deliver phone services in 122 countries, further speeding Jangl's growth as it continues to forge partnerships with top online personals and social networking communities, where it already powers in-context calling capabilities in more than 40 million online profiles.
- Jangl and JAJAH will collaborate in serving voice advertising for mobile and landline calls. Jangl will become a publisher and begin to further monetize its traffic with audio advertising. JAJAH will supply its in-call advertising appliance to overlay audio advertising on Jangl calls.
The partnership between Jangl and JAJAH underscores the complementary strengths of both companies, as well as their product and market differences.
Jangl's voice services bridge the web and phone, and it distributes those services in social networks and online personals communities as it leverages the immense penetration and overlap of mobile devices, social networking and personal computers. Jangl now powers calling capability in more than 40 million online profiles, and has been generating revenue via partnerships and licensing for nearly a year. Jangl expects to announce significant news distribution partnerships in coming weeks.
JAJAH has built a global telephony platform that lets consumers, enterprises and telephony companies use and deploy new services whether on mobile, landline or IP-based networks. First developed for the consumer and now deployed as an open platform, JAJAH's open telephony 2.0 platform combines the best of the Internet with the best of the existing telephony infrastructure, while embracing a partnership approach with the telecommunications industry.
