Openmind Networks launches App data transfer platform Golgi with $5 million in funding

  • Golgi increases app loading speeds by up to 20 times
  • Runs on Openmind's powerful Traffic Control platform

Dublin, Thursday 22nd May, 2014: Openmind Networks, the Irish mobile communications platform vendor, today announced a $5 million investment into the commercial launch of a new Software Development Kit (SDK) called Golgi (pronounced Gol-G).

Golgi leverages Openmind's powerful Traffic Control Communication platform - which is already used by mobile network operators, inter-carrier providers and social media global giants. Traffic Control is responsible for processing over one billion mobile messages every day.

Built on Traffic Control within the Cloud, Golgi provides developers with a toolkit for App to App and App to Server rich content and function transport. Developers can now focus on App features and design rather than data transport. With built in features such as type-safe native code generation, store and forward, push notifications and end-to-end encryption - Golgi is easy to use while being battery efficient, reliable, fast and secure. Golgi provides 20x acceleration times in terms of App loading and startup times.

At Openmind, the team has spent over 10 years delivering billions of mobile messages to devices every day, often in challenging wireless environments.

Brian Kelly, CTO of Openmind and Golgi, explained the SDK's origins: "During a series of app development projects starting in 2010; Openmind realized that having to re-write and fine-tune custom data, transfer code for each app was frustrating, time-consuming, error prone and lacked extensibility. Inspired by over a decade of experience in communications, we decided to automate the code-generation process and offer a platform to ensure data transfer always worked - quickly, reliably and efficiently, saving developers significant amounts of time and helping them lose fewer users to update delays and communication errors. With Golgi, applications are always fresh."

Golgi will be very relevant to Openmind's existing mobile operator customers who are creating, and nurturing, App ecosystems as part of their Telco API strategies. The adoption of Golgi as part of their API toolbox provides a consistent approach to App development; with critical elements such as scalability and security provided for - on a platform they already use within their network.

Openmind CEO, Alex Duncan commented: "the launch of Golgi enables Openmind to realize our vision of bridging the telco and IP world. Today, Golgi focuses on data transport. However, we will continue to leverage the powerful Traffic Control platform in many ways to support our customers' needs in the changing telecoms environment."

Golgi is based in Mountain View, California, U.S. with regional offices in Dublin, Ireland and, Prague, Czech Republic. Brian Kelly, Openmind and Golgi CTO, will spearhead the development of Golgi in Silicon Valley.


About Golgi
Golgi (pronounced "Gol-G") provides a data transport platform that kills the detrimental, frustrating "spinning wheel" of long loading times for connected devices and mobile apps. Developers can use Golgi's platform and code generation tools to instantly power their apps and connected devices with fast, reliable and secure data transfer. Golgi was founded in 2013 out of Openmind Networks - the communications platform powering a billion mobile moments every day through often-challenging network conditions - and is based in Mountain View, California.

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
For basic one-to-one voice or video calling solutions, WebRTC has proven to be a very powerful technology. Although WebRTC’s core functionality is to provide secure, real-time p2p media streaming, leveraging native platform features and server-side components brings up new communication capabilities for web and native mobile applications, allowing for advanced multi-user use cases such as video broadcasting, conferencing, and media recording.
