Netfuse telecom, who will be introducing their Synthesis Platform to the telecoms reseller channel Convergence South, will be demonstrating just how easy the Synthesis APIs make delivering new and unique propositions to market by inviting Convergence Summit visitors to challenge them to build a new voice and messaging application from scratch within one week of the show ending.
To make sure they build something that’s going to be useful to channel partners, Netfuse wants the channel to set them a hack challenge by using the #challengenetfuse hashtag alongside #summit_south in the run up to the event or by visiting them on Stand 61 at the event itself. The winning idea will be announced at the end of the show.
The Synthesis Platform allows channel partners to benefit from the feature set and reliability of a cutting-edge, feature-rich, robust and scalable telecoms API and management interface without investing heavily in infrastructure or development.
Netfuse managing director Peter Eyres said “we designed Synthesis as a solid foundation on which to build new and innovative voice and messaging applications; and context-rich data integrations in a matter of days. The #challengeNetfuse hackathon starting at Convergence South is about demonstrating the agility of the platform and hopefully delivering something that’s going to be of real value to the channel ongoing.”
Previous Netfuse Hackathons have turned out everything from a presence integration that uses face detection via a webcam to determine call routing; to a GPS / GSM module which will respond to an SMS asking for it’s location with a google map link.
