WSO2 Will be Joined by Guest Presenter Two Degrees Mobile on May 17, for a Technical Webinar to Explore Mobile Services Innovations Enabled by WSO2 Carbon Middleware Palo Alto, CA – May 9, 2012 – Mobile telecommunications companies cannot afford to compete simply on cost. Instead, they need to raise the bar on innovation to attract new subscribers and encourage customer loyalty. A case in point is Two Degrees Mobile Limited (2degrees), which entered the saturated New Zealand mobile market in 2009 and now counts one-sixth of the country’s population as its subscribers. WSO2 will be joined by 2degrees to conduct a case study webinar on the implementation of a service-oriented architecture (SOA) using WSO2 Carbon middleware, which has been central to the mobile company’s success. Through the SOA, 2degrees has rolled out leading-edge services—such as service top-up via Facebook and a data plan delivered and activated via a USB drive. Additionally, the mobile company is able to respond to competitors’ offers with its own new plans in as little as a day. The one-hour free webinar entitled, “WSO2 & 2degrees Case Study – Using WSO2 Carbon to Help Convert One-Sixth of New Zealand’s Population into Mobile Telecom Customers,” will run Thursday, May 17, from 9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. PST.
