announced that nearly 2,000 developers have registered to get access to the Ribbit development platform -- more than triple the number (652) of developers that the company had on Monday, when the company launched. Ribbit has also experienced a great surge of interest from investors, partners, customers, and prospective employees.
At the core of Ribbit's technology offering is a sophisticated, open platform that enables developers to bridge the worlds of traditional telephony and the Web. The Ribbit SmartSwitch evolved from a Lucent-tested CLASS 5 softswitch and open Flash/Flex-based API enables non-telephony developers to quickly build innovative, rich voice applications and integrate them into Web sites, communities and applications.
By connecting voice from any Flash-enabled browser to the PSTN and new VoIP networks, over 750 million computers become the next generation of phones with developers deciding how they work. With an assortment of back-office and service delivery infrastructure, the platform also enables developers to not only build services, but sell them as well.
