One Horizon developed a proprietary VoIP platform ("Horizon Platform") that enables wireless carriers around the world to provide customized and optimized voice and data services over any mobile, fixed and satellite network through an easy to install mobile app. Its SmartPacket™ technology underlying the Horizon Platform enables greater bandwidth efficiency by reducing IP overhead and optimizing packet flow, delivery and playback.

Mobile operators pay an annual software licensing fee to the Company and tiered user fee for each active subscriber using the white-label VoIP service powered by the Horizon Platform. The Company continues to expand its revenue sources to mobile advertising and mobile payments by introducing new value-added services and features.

"We are just beginning to see the benefits from years of hard work," stated Brian Collins, Founder and CEO of One Horizon. "After spending the last 6 years developing and perfecting One Horizon mobile VoIP software platform to meet the stringent demands of our customers, we remain focused on launching our unique services with our mobile carrier customers and increasing user adoption.

Second Quarter 2014 Financial Results

Revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2014 were approximately $1.30 million, up 4% from $1.25 million in the same period in 2013. The increase in revenues was primarily due to higher sales of master licenses which Management expects to continue as more companies and users sign up for the One Horizon VoIP Platform. Overall contract value for master license contracts signed from inception through June 30, 2014 was $65.4 million, of which only $9.1 million was recognized through June 30, 2014. Contracts with Tier 1 entities typically require agreed-upon fixed payments over fixed future periods extending beyond one year. Contracts with Tier 2 entities have long-term variable payment terms based on customer usage. In addition to sales of master licenses, the Company recognized approximately $0.8 million of revenue from the sale of hardware, user licenses, consultancy and maintenance services during the three months ended June 30, 2014.

Cost of goods sold and operating expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2014 were approximately $0.55 million and $1.24 million respectively. Gross margin was 57.9% for the second quarter of 2014 compared to 29.4% for the same period a year ago. The primary reason for the increase in gross profit and gross margin was lower hardware sales and corresponding cost of sales.

Business Updates

During the second quarter of 2014, the Company continued building up the LeiXin core network rollout. The Global Exchange (network control center) was placed in a high availability data center in Shanghai and eight Horizon line servers were connected to the telecommunications network. This level of rollout allowed the Company to issue a preliminary Android App to a group of Chinese students in Nanjing for them to evaluate the user Interface and the core features of our optimized smartphone App. Based on this feedback, the research and development teams in Ireland and China made some adjustments to the App look and feel service to accommodate this target user community.

One Horizon signed a global exchange agreement with a second tier telecommunications company in Hong Kong that targets U.S. citizens traveling overseas. Through a new configuration on the Horizon VoIP app called "RoamFrii," U.S. travelers can eliminate certain roaming charges while traveling internationally.

The research and development teams made further progress on technology and application upgrades. The team based in Switzerland is re-engineering the Horizon VoIP app user interface and expect to release the new version of the software in the third quarter of 2014.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and shared the must-have mindsets for removing complexity from the develop...

The next XaaS is CICDaaS. Why? Because CICD saves developers a huge amount of time. CD is an especially great option for projects that require multiple and frequent contributions to be integrated. But… securing CICD best practices is an emerging, essential, yet little understood practice for DevOps teams and their Cloud Service Providers. The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous ar...
Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
"Evatronix provides design services to companies that need to integrate the IoT technology in their products but they don't necessarily have the expertise, knowledge and design team to do so," explained Adam Morawiec, VP of Business Development at Evatronix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Jack Norris, Senior Vice President, Data and Applications at MapR Technologies, reviewed best practices to ...
Widespread fragmentation is stalling the growth of the IIoT and making it difficult for partners to work together. The number of software platforms, apps, hardware and connectivity standards is creating paralysis among businesses that are afraid of being locked into a solution. EdgeX Foundry is unifying the community around a common IoT edge framework and an ecosystem of interoperable components.
"ZeroStack is a startup in Silicon Valley. We're solving a very interesting problem around bringing public cloud convenience with private cloud control for enterprises and mid-size companies," explained Kamesh Pemmaraju, VP of Product Management at ZeroStack, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 21st Cloud Expo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Large industrial manufacturing organizations are adopting the agile principles of cloud software companies. The industrial manufacturing development process has not scaled over time. Now that design CAD teams are geographically distributed, centralizing their work is key. With large multi-gigabyte projects, outdated tools have stifled industrial team agility, time-to-market milestones, and impacted P&L stakeholders.
"Akvelon is a software development company and we also provide consultancy services to folks who are looking to scale or accelerate their engineering roadmaps," explained Jeremiah Mothersell, Marketing Manager at Akvelon, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 21st Cloud Expo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
