LAS VEGAS -- NewStep Networks Inc., a market and technology leader in service convergence, today announced it has incorporated a social networking communications framework into its Converged Services Node (CSN) platform. These new capabilities build on NewStep’s recent introduction of a personalized communications framework that provides users with services that are tailored to their unique personas, based on NewStep’s award winning fixed-mobile convergence technology that delivers a seamless mobile experience between cellular and wireless networks and devices.

“Adding convergence capabilities to social networking applications furthers NewStep’s commitment to enabling a personalized user communications experience,” said Shannon Bell, vice president of marketing at NewStep. “Knowing when a contact is online, how they want to be contacted and the best manner to reach them delivers a rich user experience that puts the user in control.”

NewStep has developed a Facebook application that enables a converged click-to-call experience, providing user control over one’s identity, social network, and communications channels. Similarly, NewStep’s widgets for Yahoo!oneConnect and iGoogle bring convergence into a user’s own personalized mobile or web portal, leveraging all available presence, location, and behavior characteristics.

These new features are built on NewStep’s proven convergence server that is commercially deployed and delivering solutions to service providers and enterprises today.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
