Skype Competitors Open Development Centre In Croatia

Mavenir Systems, the second fastest growing technology company in Texas, has opened a center in Zagreb which will develop technology that will enable mobile operators to compete with Skype, Viber and WhatsApp.

Mavenir Systems global director of marketing Maryvonne Tubb confirmed that the company has opened a User Experience Centre in Croatia where a team of engineers are working on the new technology.

“Zagreb is an ideal place to develop software when you take into account that Croatia is entering the EU, and that here is the academic centre of Croatia which produces high-quality and creative staff,” said Tubb, who would not confirm how many people Mavenir Systems would employ in Croatia.

Mavenir specialise in developing mobile services on device platforms such as Android, Windows, iOS and Blackberry, providing the insight needed to ensure the practicality, ease of use and efficiency of compelling new IP services.

“User experience is a key success factor in launching Rich Communications, Video, and VoIP services, and will become critical as mobile operators expand their services beyond smartphones to include any device connected via any IP network, such as tablets, Smart TVs and web browsers,” said Pardeep Kohli, Mavenir’s President and CEO. “This Centre allows Mavenir to more readily demonstrate, and quickly bring to market, new advanced offerings for VoWi-Fi, VoLTE and Rich Communication Services (RCS).”
