Red Bend Software Receives Product of the Year Award from Communications Solutions1
Red Bend’s vCurrent Mobile® Honored for Outstanding Innovation
WALTHAM, Mass.—June 17, 2008—Red Bend Software, the leader in Mobile Software Management, today announced that Technology Marketing Corporation’s (TMC) Communications Solutions has named Red Bend’s vCurrent® Mobile a recipient of a 2007 Product of the Year Award.
Red Bend’s vCurrent Mobile client software for Firmware Over-the-Air (FOTA) updating has been adopted by the world’s leading manufacturers of mobile phones and machine-to-machine (M2M) cellular modules, and has been proven in tens of millions of accurate and secure firmware updates. vCurrent Mobile is the first FOTA solution to perform firmware updates in the background while the consumer continues to use the full functionality of the phone, without taking the device offline. This innovation completely changes the paradigm of FOTA by making irrelevant the issue of update time, which previously took 5-15 minutes.
“Red Bend’s vCurrent Mobile significantly improves the mobile user experience by updating mobile software in the background, enabling consumers to continue talking with their friends or browsing the Internet while their phone’s software is being improved,” said Yoram Salinger, CEO of Red Bend Software. “We are honored that TMCnet has recognized Red Bend with a Product of the Year Award. It is a testament to the importance of vCurrent Mobile’s Background Updating feature, particularly to ensuring a phone’s availability for E911 emergency services.”
“Red Bend Software has been recognized with a 2007 Product of the Year Award for their excellence in the advancement of mobile communications,” said Rich Tehrani, TMC President and Group Editor-in-Chief of Communications Solutions. “Red Bend has proven they are committed to quality and excellence in solutions that benefit the customer experience as well as ROI for the companies that use them. I am pleased to honor their hard work and accomplishments and look forward to more innovative solutions from them in the future.”
The eighth annual Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award recognizes the vision, leadership and attention to detail that are the hallmarks of the prestigious award. The most innovative products and services brought to market in 2007 were selected as recipients of this year’s Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award.
