SEVEN Networks Wins GSMA Global Mobile Award for Technology Breakthrough

Company Awarded Best Mobile Technology Breakthrough for New, Innovative Open Channel™ Traffic Optimization Solution

REDWOOD CITY, California – February 16th, 2011SEVEN® Networks, a provider of Real Life, Real Time™ mobile solutions, today announced it has been awarded the GSMA Global Mobile Award for Best Mobile Technology Breakthrough for its Open Channel™ mobile traffic optimization solution. Award winners were announced Tuesday, February 15 at the Mobile World Congress conference in Barcelona, Spain.

Currently, applications like social networking, email, IM, weather and others randomly send hundreds of these requests daily consuming significant network bandwidth and signaling resources. Open Channel works by monitoring all requests for data made by the mobile apps and only connecting to the network if new updates are available, cutting the data consumption of smartphones and other mobile devices by up to 70 percent.

“Given the major challenges faced by the telecommunication industry, many companies introduced very innovative products this year and SEVEN is honored to be a recipient of this Technology Breakthrough Global Mobile Awards,” said Michael Luna, SEVEN chief technical officer. “We are extremely proud of the early success of our Open Channel solution and will continue to develop innovative solutions that better the mobile industry for operators, device manufacturers and users alike.”

The Best Mobile Technology Breakthrough category was first introduced for the 2009 Global Mobile Awards to recognize the very many technological advances the mobile industry sees each year outside of the core network infrastructure and radio access layers. This award recognizes the contribution that mobile operators, manufacturers and suppliers make to increase mobile usage, expand the user experience, and help expand business opportunities.

Mobile World Congress is happening now through February 17, and Open Channel is currently on display in the SEVEN booth AV31. For more information, go to, or follow SEVEN on Twitter at
