Funambol Pitches White-label Personal Cloud Service

Funambol, a start-up based in Foster City, California, launched its white-label personal cloud solution for mobile providers.

Funambol's OneMediaHub enables mobile operators, device makers and other providers to offer a branded digital locker service for millions of users. Unlike simple file depository lockers, OneMediaHub automatically secures, syncs and shares content across multiple brands of devices, including PCs.

Funambol allows the carrier to offer this cloud service under their own label. The platform is based on open source, enabling it to be adapted to the carrier's needs. The company is already providing the personal cloud app to the Wholesale Applications Community (WAC).

"OneMediaHub is the only personal cloud that lets users realize the full connected device experience, as it automatically secures, syncs and shares data and content across multiple vendor devices," said Amit Chawla, Funambol CEO. "Mobile operators, device makers and other providers now have a superior personal cloud solution to better retain users and develop new revenue streams.�?http://www.funambol.comFunambol is headed by Amit Chawla (CEO), who previously led enterprise mobility specialist Agito Networks, which was acquired by ShoreTel. Prior to Agito, Amit was CEO of NexVerse Networks, where he spearheaded the merger with a division of ECI Telecom to form Veraz Networks.
