Cable & Wireless Communications Selects Funambol to Power Caribbean's Premier Operator Personal Cloud Service

LIME MyCloud to Improve the Digital Life of Caribbean People

FOSTER CITY, CA--(Marketwired - Dec 2, 2014) - Funambol, the leading provider of white-label personal cloud solutions, today announced that LIME, the Caribbean's leading telecom, from Cable & Wireless Communications, is using Funambol to power the region's premier operator personal cloud service. LIME MyCloud automatically secures peoples' rich media and personal data in the cloud, syncs it across their mobile devices and computers, and enables content to be easily shared. LIME views its personal cloud service as highly important as their subscribers are extremely mobile and it is critical that their content always be secure and easily accessed.

James McElvanna Group Product Director, Cable & Wireless Communications, said, "Our customers love to listen to music, take photos and watch video clips on the go, and LIME MyCloud will protect their most treasured files. Additionally, their lifestyle will only get more mobile as we launch 4G LTE mobile data and fibre to the home broadband services."

LIME MyCloud is based on Funambol's solution for several reasons. As a white-label solution, LIME extends its brand via an innovative mobile service that strengthens customer loyalty. LIME liked how Funambol's aim was consistent with their goal of improving people's lives rather than just being another cloud storage service. They viewed the flexibility of the Funambol personal cloud as a major plus, as this enables LIME to offer a customized and differentiated solution. LIME also appreciated the speed at which the service could be deployed and Funambol's extensive track record of delivering high-quality mobile services.

"Providing an innovative personal cloud service for highly mobile people presents unique challenges. Only a mobile solution that is time-tested in diverse conditions fits the bill," said Amit Chawla, Funambol CEO. "We are pleased that Cable & Wireless chose Funambol to power its personal cloud service and look forward to working with them to improve the digital life of their subscribers."
