Amsterdam, Netherlands, June 10, 2014 --(PR.com)-- NewNet Communication Technologies, B.V., a Portfolio Company of Skyview Capital, and a global leader in mobility technologies with a primary focus in mobile messaging, announced today the acquisition of NewPace Technology Development Inc.

NewPace develops mobile and wireline telecom software solutions for global carriers. NewPace’s services include professional services to telcos and development of RCS Messaging software solutions. The acquisition of the NewPace business represents a significant milestone in the evolution of NewNet’s product portfolio and market focus. The NewPace products will be a key addition to the Mobile Messaging technologies, expanding NewNet’s development initiatives. NewPace serves a range of global telecom carriers and handset manufacturers and has 28 staff based in Halifax, Canada.

NewPace’s rcsConnect family of solutions has been powering global rich communication service clients for more than three years. rcsConnect is a complete suite of GSMA 5.1 compliant services, accredited by the GSMA, including: VoIP and Video calling, Presence, Instant Messaging, Group Chat, File Transfer, Store and Forward functionality, Central Message Store, Configuration Server, Inter-operator routing and Network API solutions for mobile operators.

This will complement our current Krypton, Lithium, Mercury, and Cobalt SMS and MMS product lines. We have been working with the NewPace team since mid-2013 and see great traction for our combined product suite.”

“NewPace believes that NewNet is best positioned to capture the growing RCS market by merging our technologies, staff and services,” said Brent Newsome, the President and CEO of NewPace.

Gavin Murphy, NewPace VP and CTO said, “Our products solve an important pain-point for mobile carriers. Working with the NewNet and Skyview team, we see numerous opportunities for revenue growth and technology development.”

NewPace’s suite of products and services combined with NewNet’s existing portfolio of messaging, signaling, and secure transaction applications will enable NewNet to offer our global customers an even broader range of next-gen communication solutions. Furthermore, a key initiative for us moving forward will be to utilize our telecom and messaging experience to expand organically and inorganically into new advanced communications solutions including Voice over LTE (VoLTE),” said Alex Soltani, Chairman and CEO of Skyview Capital.
