Voxofon (www.voxofon.com), a provider of mobile apps utilizing over-the-top (OTT) voice and messaging services, has announced that co-founder and board member Roberto Moctezuma will present at PTC’14: New World, New Strategies conference in Honolulu, Hawaii. Moctezuma’s presentation, “The Re-imagination of the Communications Ecosystem: Your Biggest Threat and Biggest Opportunity,” will be part of this afternoon’s Monetization and Revenue Models session.
The Pacific Telecommunications Council’s three-day conference is regarded as the Asia-Pacific region's premier telecommunications event. The Monetization and Revenue Models session will be moderated by Brian Tellam, a partner with Cornerstone Capital Partners, and will also include presentations from Amandeep Mandhar of Tech Mahindra Ltd. and Robert Morse Jr. of Strattam Capital, LLC.
“Telecommunications has experienced the emergence of a new ecosystem – in which Voxofon and other OTT services are disruptors – bringing a consumer-centric approach to product and service development and an international perspective to the concept of connectivity,” said Moctezuma. “Instead of telling consumers what they should want, this new ecosystem is rooted in the development of innovative solutions by the community of consumers themselves.”
In his presentation, Moctezuma will describe the implications of these fundamental shifts for legacy telecommunications providers as their market is increasingly fragmented by OTT software vendors and tech heavyweights such as Apple, Google and Microsoft.
Voxofon recently was listed among the fastest growing technology companies in Houston by the Houston Business Journal, achieving revenue growth of 167 percent from 2010 to 2012. The company offers free app-to-app texts and calls across any iOS, Android, Windows, or Blackberry device and provides inexpensive international calling and SMS messaging to any phone number including feature phones and landlines. No other OTT provider matches Voxofon's cross-platform capabilities, broad range of functionality or exceptional user experience.
PTC’14: New World, New Strategies is bringing together technologists, thought leaders, policy-makers, and executives representing the spectrum of telecommunications interests, creating a unique forum for networking and negotiating, sharing insights and exploring the dimensions of this new world, and helping to craft new strategies.
The Monetization and Revenue Models session is scheduled for 2:00 p.m. this afternoon in South Pacific 1. The conference began January 19th and continues through January 22nd at the Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort, in Honolulu.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It doe...

In the 21st century, security on the Internet has become one of the most important issues. We hear more and more about cyber-attacks on the websites of large corporations, banks and even small businesses. When online we’re concerned not only for our own safety but also our privacy. We have to know that hackers usually start their preparation by investigating the private information of admins – the habits, interests, visited websites and so on. On the other hand, our own security is in danger bec...
