Vennetics Wins Irish Times InterTrade Ireland All-Island Innovation Award

Vennetics, an innovator of telecommunications and IT applications, has developed the new Moozler application for their successful J-Box products, based on an implementation of the new Voice Call Control interface within version 2 of the GSMA OneAPI specifications. The award winning Moozler application is provided as a multi platform client that is available today for laptops, netbooks, tablets and smart phones, running Windows, MacOS, Linux, Android and iOS.

Moozler is being deployed by mobile operators in a manner that is independent of the access network that various devices may be connected to, such as HSPA, WiFi, GSM or DSL. Many individual users already have multiple connected devices, which may at times be attached to access networks from several different providers. Consequently, in order to provide services that remain relevant across the entire connected life of their users, network operators must deliver innovative service logic onto devices that are attached to other service provider networks. This kind of ‘Cuckoo Service’ will be increasingly important in mobile markets where both devices and access networks are becoming ever more fragmented.

Kieran Dalton, Chairman of Vennetics said, “I’m delighted that the engineering team involved with the Moozler application have been recognised with this prestigious award.  The functional scope of the GSMA OneAPI specifications has been expanded significantly with the recent release of version 2 and I think that following Moozler, the evolution of this technology will see many more novel new applications launched using J-Box in the near future.”

Now in its second year, the Irish Times InterTradeIreland All-Island Innovation Awards aim to recognise and promote the best service, product or operational innovations throughout the island. Over 120 companies entered the seven categories of the competition. Twenty one of these were then shortlisted for the awards by a judging panel, before the final winners were selected.

Commenting on the awards, Liam Nellis, Chief Executive of InterTradeIreland and Chair of the Innovation Awards final judging panel said “Despite the economic situation, we have been extremely encouraged by the level and diversity of innovations represented by our finalists and winners. Not only do they have strong ideas and innovative processes, but crucially, they are market-led and market-focused. I’m delighted that these awards have managed to achieve exactly what they set out to do, which is to showcase the best examples of innovation on the island.”

The final judging panel for the event included Colm Long, Facebook, Liam Nellis InterTradeIreland, Peter Callan, The Irish Times Group, Michael Carey, Jacob Fruitfield Food Group, Tim Cody, Accenture, Ivan Coulter, Sigmoid Pharma and Deirde Terrins, Crescent Capital.

Liam Kavanagh, Managing Director of the Irish Times added, “We sometimes get caught up in the finer points of policies and strategies at a national level without appreciating the people who are putting all the fine words into practice. That’s what this event tonight – and indeed our monthly Innovation magazine – is all about.”
