MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- Jibe Mobile (www.jibemobile.com), a Silicon Valley cloud-based global communications provider, today announced that it has closed $8.3 million in financing with investments by Vodafone Ventures (the U.S. investment arm of Vodafone Group), Tokyo-based game creator MTI, and other investors. The investment will help Jibe to continue bridging the world of standards-based communications and agile Silicon-Valley application development to connect consumers around the world via the next generation of "rich communications" – video chat, real-time gaming, and other innovations – regardless of their location, mobile device or telecommunications plan.

Jibe will continue developing the world's first open technology platform leveraging the most advanced telecom industry standards — including GSMA joyn and RCS 5 — and enhance its open APIs enabling developers to rapidly incorporate real-time, 'rich communications' into mobile applications.
