OnRelay Announces US Market Entry and Scale Matrix Agreement

(San Francisco, 1 June, 2011) OnRelay today announced it has entered a distribution contract with Scale Matrix, a San Diego based Managed Service Provider that operates 12 data centers across the US.  Scale Matrix designs, deploys and manages private cloud solutions for its clients based on the CA AppLogic cloud platform.  As part of the agreement, OnRelay’s Mobile Cloud Exchange (MCX) software has been wrapped in the CA AppLogic cloud platform for plug and play implementation of new MCX server instances. MCX has also been fully verified with US 3G networks and SIP trunks from leading suppliers.

“We are very impressed with Scale Matrix, who represents exactly the type of distribution partner we are looking for in the US”, says Marie Wold, OnRelay’s President & CFO.  “Scale Matrix combines a significant experience in telecoms with state of the art cloud computing know how, and they have the datacenter facilities and operations team to back up a rapid expansion and growth of the service. We were frankly blown away by how quickly ScaleMatrix was able to wrap our server in their AppLogic cloud platform with limited support from ourselves’’.

“This partnership brings significant advantages to the customers of both OnRelay and ScaleMatrix,” said Mark Ortenzi, CEO, ScaleMatrix. “OnRelay’s packaging of world-class virtual PBX gives us something timely and important to deliver to our private-cloud.”

OnRelay is with this agreement also announcing the establishment of its new US office in San Francisco.  “As a European fixed mobile convergence pioneer, we have over the last 2 years been immensely impressed by how quickly the US has caught up and overtaken Europe in the mobile space”, says Ivar Plahte, OnRelay’s CEO. “Led by Apple and Google, US has turned the mobile market on its head into an ecosystem driven by smartphones, mobile apps, 3rd party developers and now also cloud computing. We have been betting on a more open telecom market for years, and needless to say, we are very pleased about this development and want to ensure we are right in the middle of it”.

OnRelay’s Mobile Cloud Exchange (MCX) will be available to ScaleMatrix customers and partners shortly.  Interested parties please contact:
