Ground-breaking Sendboo Messaging Application Announces Launch At CES

MIAMI, Jan. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Sendboo, the newest cross-platform mobile messaging application, made its debut at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, NV. CES is the world's largest consumer technology tradeshow. As the only cross-platform, real-time messaging application to provide seamless translation into 30 languages, Sendboo opens up a whole new world for smartphone and tablet users. The instant messaging application expands the communicative abilities of users beyond those offered by alternative mobile apps currently available to users.

Sendboo supports group chat and unlimited image, video and audio media messaging. However, unlike its counterparts, this app addresses the challenges of international communications. Sendboo's interface allows users to communicate and exchange messages seamlessly, not only in the same language but also in different languages without the use of a separate translation tool. Users set the app to their preferred language, send a message and the system translates this message into the preferred language of the recipient in real-time. This works for one-on-one and group messages, as well as in the app's group chat feature.

"Sendboo is a game changer in day-to-day communications," said Alfredo Reviati, Chief Executive Officer and President of Sendboo. "Given widespread adoption of smartphones and the convergence of mobile and IP-based messaging, we recognized an opportunity to eliminate the language barrier that exists in communications. Sendboo offers an easy messaging for users looking for a better option for basic messaging, but also for users that interact in different languages. Whether for work or social interactions, Sendboo will revolutionize global communications." To celebrate its international debut, a press conference was held on the second day of CES--Wednesday, Jan. 9. Attendees received a first-hand look at Sendboo's user-friendly interface and features including contact group management, location sharing, real-time status updates, user profiles, searchable message history, broadcast messaging, group chat and a message export function.

The application will initially be compatible with the Apple iOS mobile operating system and will become available for Android devices during the first quarter of 2013. Sendboo is available in both free and premium versions. The service is free of charge. Sendboo works on a phone or tablet's Internet data plan or Wi-Fi connectivity, so users are not burdened by costs associated with SMS text messaging.

Sendboo currently supports all major languages including Arabic, Chinese (simplified), Chinese (Traditional), English, French, German, Hebrew, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Vietnamese, among others.

Sendboo and Sendboo Plus are available for download in the Social Networking section of the Apple App Store. For more information on Sendboo, please visit www.sendboo.com.

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

Featured Whitepapers

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
