BARCELONA -- Synchronica plc (AIM: SYNC, TSX-V: SYN), the international provider of next-generation mobile messaging solutions, today announces integration of new advanced transcoding and streaming functionality in Mobile Gateway 6, dramatically reducing network bandwidth consumption and allowing users to view complex email attachments even from entry-level mobile devices.

The patented transcoding technology converts and optimizes office and multimedia documents on the fly and streams the content to the mobile browser, reducing the consumption of network bandwidth by as much as 90 percent. Content is converted by intelligent adaptation to structured data formats, such as XML, FPX, or 3GPP. As the content is streamed and displayed in the mobile phone's web browser, the new technology removes the need for heavy third-party document viewers.

Carsten Brinkschulte, CEO of Synchronica, comments: "For operators, the cost of wholesale bandwidth is fast becoming a controversial issue; several operators are already ending their all-you-can-eat data plans and implementing fair use policies."

"A significant contributor to bandwidth squandering is email traffic, often associated with heavy attachments. With Mobile Gateway's new transcoding, we can reduce the total bandwidth used by up to 90 percent and at the same time provide full document viewing capabilities even on entry-level phones without the need for complex attachment viewer applications", Brinkschulte adds.

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.
