Shai Machnes on a cloud for SMS applications

January 15, 2010

Shai Machnes was a student at Singularity University’s Graduate Studies Program 2009 (GSP-09), representing a GSP Team Project focused on bringing the power of cloud computing to the 2G cellphone market around the world.

OneGlobalVoice is a development platform that gives access to cloud-computing resources through SMS on a basic (2G) cellphone. It demonstrates how innovations commonly carried out on computationally-and-bandwidth heavy internet subscriptions, or on fast and relatively expensive 3G networks (available to less than a quarter of mobile subscribers worldwide) can also take place on the 2G networks available to over half the worlds population.
