Microsoft Azure Recognized OHGI's VoIP Cloud Service Now Has Unlimited Scalability to Expand in Global Telco Mobile Markets

LIMERICK, IRELAND--(Marketwired - Dec 16, 2015) - One Horizon Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: OHGI) a leading carrier-grade VoIP solution for mobile providers and smartphones, announced today that the Company has been featured in a Microsoft case study. The Microsoft Azure operating system seamlessly integrates with the OHGI cloud based VoIP calling platform to deliver low latency mobile VoIP on smartphones operating over 2G, 3G, and 4G mobile network. This is material as OHGI's VoIP licenses to telco's ultimately delivers a lower operating cost that translates into a lower cost-of-service per call (direct money savings) to the end mobile customers.

One Horizon Group CIO Peter Hall noted, "Without Azure and Microsoft cloud services, we would not have been able to create such a scalable business in China nor offer our customers the potential to run solutions in multiple countries around the world without hardware investment. We are delighted to have been showcased by Microsoft for our use of their services to prepare our Company, Aishuo and licensees to scale our proprietary VoIP services without limits and to position us for growth."

In the case study, Microsoft focuses on how One Horizon uses the platform for scalability, control and innovation to create operational efficiency and cost savings. The full case study can be found at: https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/smb/customer-success-stories/building-a-global-business
