Hong Kong, Oct 10, 2011 - (ACN Newswire) - One Horizon Group Plc ("One Horizon Group" or "Company"), leader in optimising communications over the internet, has announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Horizon Globex, has entered into a joint venture with Voicecom Technologies Pvt Ltd. ("Voicecom") to market and distribute its Horizon solution in the Indian market.

Horizon is the world's most bandwidth efficient VoIP platform. Based on the company's SmartPacket(TM) technology, it enables VoIP from only 2kbps compared to around 8kbps from other VoIP platforms. This extends into a range of optimised data applications, including compressed email, accelerated web browsing and optimised instant messaging. It is fully compatible with digital telecommunications standards and is capable of interconnecting any phone system over IP. The platform is deployable in the satellite, fixed and mobile markets.
Under the new collaboration, Horizon Globex India Pvt Ltd will be focusing on providing the Horizon platform to network operators and service providers in the region. Voicecom is based in New Delhi and has operations in Singapore, Thailand, Nepal and the Philippines. The company has over 200 employees serving major telcos in India and countries in the Association of Southeast Asia nations (ASEAN) region.

"By combining the resources of both companies and Voicecom's knowledge of the local market, we expect great success for Horizon in the world's second largest mobile market. We look forward to working closely with Voicecom, leveraging their two decades experience in telecoms and their expertise in marketing and engineering," said Mark White, CEO, One Horizon Group.

India's telecom sector is experiencing tremendous growth and Horizon is ideally suited to address congestion on mobile networks in crowded urban areas, resulting from rapid adoption of smartphones, increasing demand for mobile applications and the scarcity of 3G spectrum. Horizon will help Indian mobile operators to relieve pressure on theirnetworks, reduce call dropping and improve customer satisfaction by using bandwidth more efficiently.

"Horizon represents a significant opportunity for telcos and service providers to minimise the volume of data their subscribers consume. We areexcited to be partnering with Horizon Globex to launch this game-changing solution in the Indian market," noted Vijay Sharma, Director, Voicecom.
