Live Translation During Cellphone Calls Enabled Through Combination of RingPlus and Sprint Technology
LOS ANGELES --(Business Wire)--
Inc., the most innovative wireless provider in the US prepaid
cellular market, demonstrated their newest breakthrough during the
Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas on January 9, 2013. During a
private event hosted by Sprint
(NYSE: S) at the Vdara Hotel, members of RingPlus'
executive team placed the first mobile phone call with their technology
on the Sprint (News - Alert) network that translated the initial part of the
conversation from English into Spanish and then translated the response
from Spanish back to English.
"Working with innovative carriers such as RingPlus (News - Alert) Inc. to combine
back tone software with Sprint's WMI platform and achieve
such an amazing technological breakthrough demonstrates our commitment
to ensure our resellers' success. We are very proud of the end result."
Bill Esrey, vice president, Sales - Sprint
"Seeing how smoothly our technologies integrated and the exciting
discussions we've had with Sprint has confirmed that, not only did we
choose the right provider in Sprint, but also the most inspiring. Thank
Seelig, CEO & Founder - RingPlus Inc.
RingPlus Inc. announced that it was working on this technology in
November of 2012 and that it would be available exclusively over their
network on March 11, 2013. Being able to demonstrate it so quickly shows
why they are industry leaders in Ring Back Tone Replacement technology.
Once it is live on their network, the in-call translator will be
available in 47 different languages and only one of the mobile devices
involved in the conversation will need to be on the RingPlus network,
meaning that the translator would be available from a RingPlus phone to
a landline, other carrier network, or even internationally.
