SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – September 4, 2018 – Voxbone’s mission — to take the complexity out of global business communications and deliver a uniform, enterprise-grade cloud service — has been bolstered by the addition of a new board member, Dr. Jens Meggers. As the CaaS (Communication-as-a-Service) leader, Voxbone powers almost every enterprise cloud communications platform with on-demand voice and messaging services via API. Meggers’ experience will be indispensable as Voxbone pushes further into the complex realm of enterprise infrastructures.
As former senior vice president and general manager for the Cloud Collaboration Technology Group at Cisco, Meggers brings deep enterprise software and services expertise to the Voxbone board. An expert in creating robust, scalable infrastructures, he was responsible for managing Cisco’s cloud-focused portfolio of voice, video and web conferencing services, which are used by millions of customers. Meggers previously held leadership positions at Symantec and currently serves as COO of exciting AI cloud collaboration play, Huddl.ai.
“Voxbone is quite possibly the best kept secret in cloud communications,” said Meggers. “The team has disrupted how communications are consumed; now, it powers the entire communication industry as well as businesses worldwide. Voxbone is changing the global communications landscape and I am excited to join a company that communications players can’t do without.”
With a Masters and PhD in Computer Science from RWTH Aachen, Germany, where he conducted research in 3G/4G mobile internet applications and video and audio transmission over networks with variable service capabilities, Meggers also has several patents in data communications and security.
“Jens is one of the rare individuals who has successfully brought complex, critical cloud services to Enterprise users on a massive scale and across several domains, such as communications and cyber security,” said Itay Rosenfeld, CEO of Voxbone. “A seasoned executive, he not only commands respect in the communications industry, but he’s also a great person to work with. We feel privileged to have him on board”.
Voxbone allows enterprise customers to completely eliminate the need for telephony services on a global scale. It handles the complexity of operating a global communications infrastructure and replaces it with a single cloud service, available on demand through web or API.
Businesses can ‘plug and play’ with on-demand voice and messaging services in 60 plus countries, together accounting for more than 92 percent of the world’s gross domestic product (GDP).
This mission to make mind-numbingly complex systems “strangely simple” for its customers is exactly why Voxbone was so attractive to Meggers.
