Truphone has announced it will establish a Technology Center in NJ to complement its new U.S. headquarters in the Research Triangle Park in North Carolina. The company initially gained attention in 2006 with the introduction of the world’s first mobile VoIP application and has continued to launch a string of industry firsts. The center will be located in the Enterprise Development Center at the NJ Institute of Technology (NJIT) in Newark.
The Truphone technology center initially consists of a staff of 12, according to Trutower.com. The company began on a farm in Kent, U.K with a handful of people and a big idea to break down the barriers to effective global mobile communications. Now, with global headquarters in London, and additional operations in Australia, Hong Kong, the Netherlands, Portugal and the US, the company has grown to employ approximately 350 people worldwide. Truphone has expanded its offerings to include GSM-based voice, text and data mobile services, which will soon be available in the United States.
