FOSTER CITY, Calif., March 5, 2013 -- Funambol, the leader of white-label personal clouds, today announced that CSL has launched 1O1O MyRoom, a mobile operator digital locker using Funambol OneMediaHub. CSL is Hong Kong's first and leading mobile network operator, offering comprehensive mobile and broadband services through a multi-freestanding brand strategy, for domestic and international customers. OneMediaHub is the leading white-label personal cloud solution for mobile providers, enabling them to go-to-market quickly with their own branded digital lifestyle cloud. As CSL's brand dedicated to serving digital drivers and people seeking a total mobile lifestyle, 1O1O launched MyRoom on its 4G LTE network to provide mobile users with access to files, pictures, video, music and more across multiple devices.
"The launch of 1O1O's MyRoom is the latest service to enable Hong Kongers' increasing mobile lifestyle," said Mark Liversidge, Chief Marketing Officer of CSL. "The new MyRoom digital locker allows customers to work and live remotely on our 4G LTE network, meeting a critical need to access and share content, across multiple devices and O/S, allowing our customers a first in market opportunity. We are pleased to offer this personal cloud service using Funambol OneMediaHub."
CSL's new digital locker reflects the trend of mobile operators worldwide that are launching their own branded personal cloud service in conjunction with 4G network rollouts. This encourages customers to store data and content in the operator's cloud rather than an over-the-top (OTT) cloud, to increase customer loyalty and reduce churn. Many operators are going to market with Funambol OneMediaHub as it is the most comprehensive, flexible and easiest-to-use white-label personal cloud solution.
1O1O's MyRoom offers 8GB of free storage to customers signed up by March 31, 2013. For more information about CSL, see www.hkcsl.com.
"We are delighted that CSL has based the MyRoom personal cloud on OneMediaHub," said Amit Chawla, Funambol CEO. "We look forward to helping them increase customer loyalty."
