Bit6 Partners With Telerik, a Progress Company, and Releases Verified Cordova Plugin on Telerik Marketplace

Bit6 (www.bit6.com), a communications-as-a-service platform provider that helps transform the app experience by allowing developers to easily embed real-time communication features to any mobile or web application, today announced a partnership with Telerik, a Progress company, to add the Bit6 software development kit (SDK) to the Telerik Verified Plugins Marketplace. Bit6 is the first plug-in in the Marketplace that offers voice calling, video calling, text messaging and photo/video attachment sharing capabilities.

“We are proud to be included in the Telerik Verified Plugins Marketplace because Telerik is a true leader in simplifying the app development process,” said Alexey Golshubin, founder and CEO of Bit6 and parent company Voxofon. “The aim of this partnership is to make it faster and easier than ever for application developers to create great apps that integrate Bit6’s leading capabilities. We expect the community of developers using the marketplace will be very excited about how they can significantly enhance the app experience for their users with Bit6, which fully leverages WebRTC and OTT technologies.”

The Telerik Verified Plugins Marketplace is a first-of-its-kind gallery of Cordova plugins to extend and empower cross-platform hybrid mobile development. Before being added to the gallery, the Bit6 SDK was thoroughly tested and documented to help ease app development initiatives. According to Telerik, more than 40,000 organizations across 94 countries make use of Telerik products, including around 450 of the Fortune 500.

“We are excited to see companies such as Bit6 bring advanced features such as real-time voice, video and text/multimedia messaging capabilities, into the Telerik Verified Plugin Marketplace,” said Todd Anglin, VP Product Strategy at Telerik, a Progress company. “We want to provide developers with tested and validated solutions that help build one-of-a-kind app experiences for their customers and that’s exactly what Bit6 delivers.”

As with other modules on the Telerik Verified Plugin Marketplace, Bit6 built a Cordova wrapper around the Bit6 SDK, which allows developers to use a single JavaScript code base to invoke device-specific libraries for iOS, Android, and other operating systems. This provides the Telerik and Cordova communities access to the same technologies already being used to power native apps in iTunes and Google Play. The team behind Voxofon (www.voxofon.com), which supports more than 3 million users in over 200 countries, is capitalizing on its experience and expertise with communications technologies and user behavior to develop the Bit6 platform.
