Openwave Mobility Receives 2015 Product of the Year Award for Smart Data Federator

Smart Data Federator Honored for Innovation in Subscriber Data Consolidation

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – May 13, 2015 — Openwave Mobility announced today that TMC, a global, integrated media company, has named Smart Data Federator (SDF) as a 2015 Mobility Tech Zone Product of the Year Award winner, presented by TMC’s Mobility Tech Zone.

Working within the mobile operator’s network, Smart Data Federator (SDF) provides the means for multiple data centers to be accessed as one. SDF acts as a flexible interface between data silos that reads and writes subscriber data to existing systems, allowing for a consolidated view of all subscriber data. This consolidated view is crucial since current data repositories use varying structures, diverse access languages and different APIs. SDF allows interfacing applications and tools to access data via their own native APIs and languages. This grants operators the ability to develop and monetize new services as they utilize data from existing legacy repositories and augment it with additional information from multiple locations.

“Year after year, Openwave Mobility continues to deliver exceptional products for the industry.” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “Our judges were impressed with the Smart Data Federator. Carriers can now get a consolidated view of all subscriber data and monetize it. That’s a unique product for an all too common problem facing operators. It is our pleasure to honor Openwave Mobility for their remarkable work.”

The Mobility Tech Zone Product of the Year Award honors the development of technologies geared toward the evolution of 4G, all IP, wireless networks, including products, services, architecture and infrastructure, delivery and applications.

“We are pleased to learn that our Smart Data Federator has been recognized by TMC’s Mobility Tech Zone as a Product of the Year,” said John Giere, CEO Openwave Mobility. “Subscriber Data Federator provides operators with the crucial agility they need to add new services.”

Winners of the 2015 Mobility Tech Zone Product of the Year Award are published in the Mobility Tech Zone e-newsletter and on the Mobility Tech Zone website.
