Infinite Convergence recognized as one of the most promising private companies globally.
CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Infinite Convergence Solutions, a next-generation wireless messaging and mobility solutions provider for carriers and enterprises, announces its recognition as a 2013 Red Herring Top 100 Globalcompany. The Top 100 Global recognizes leading private companies from North America, Europe and Asia for their innovations and technologies across their respective industries.
“Choosing the companies with the strongest potential was by no means a small feat”
Recognized for its work in the mobile industry, Infinite Convergence enables more than 130 million global subscribers to exchange 900 billion messages annually on its carrier-grade platform. The company features a comprehensive set of products and services, including Enterprise Messaging Service (EMS), Rich Communication Suite (RCS) and Personal Messaging Cloud (PMC).
“We’re extremely proud that Red Herring has recognized our company as a leading global innovator. Mobile operators and enterprises in countries across the globe are adopting more advanced mobility solutions, and we’ve aligned our company to support this demand,” said Anurag Lal, CEO of Infinite Convergence Solutions. “This award is testament to the hard work of our dedicated employees and our commitment to providing mobility solutions for some of the largest mobile operators and enterprises. We’re confident this recognition will continue to move the company forward on a global scale.”
A result of an alliance between Infinite Computer Solutions and Nokia Solutions Networks, Infinite Convergence leverages nearly two decades of combined experience from its leadership team to offer secure and reliable messaging for carriers and enterprises. Lal previously served as Director of the United States National Broadband Taskforce, a position appointed by the Obama administration and was a part of the Federal Communications Commission.
“Choosing the companies with the strongest potential was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across the globe to the Top 100 Winners. We believe Infinite Convergence embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Infinite Convergence should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was the strongest it has ever been.”
Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated the companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, management quality, strategy and market penetration. This assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the track records and standing of startups relative to their peers, allowing Red Herring to see past the “buzz” and make the list a valuable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the most promising new business models from around the world. Red Herring’s Top 100 Global list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising new companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype, Salesforce.com, YouTube, and eBay would change the way we live and work.
This recognition follows several other notable company accomplishments in 2013, including previously being named a Red Herring Top 100 North America technology venture, achieving GSMA certification for its RCS solution and earning top honors in the Fierce Innovation Awards: Telecom Addition for its Personal Messaging Cloud.
