2600Hz Announces Full Integration with Innovative new “Carrier Pigeon” service.


San Francisco, CA - April 1st, 2016 - With skyrocketing demand for integrations between different services, 2600Hz is staying ahead of the competition with a unique integration named “Carrier Pigeons”. This service allows customers to place calls to a specific number/extension where you then leave a voicemail. 2600Hz seamlessly transfers the voicemail to a thumb drive. Via automated, scalable, elastic engineering robots, the thumb drive is attached to a pigeon who is dispatched automatically to the specific location determined by the extension. Using 2600Hz Mobile services, Carrier Pigeons are tracked via GPS until they reach their destination. Their progress is shown in an amazing user interface, the Monster Pigeon app.

2600Hz’s Co-Founder Darren Schreiber explains “We’ve seen what employing contract workers has done for the transportation industry, with services like Uber and Lyft. We see no reason why this can’t be adopted in the communications industry. The challenge in our industry is that people want their voicemail messages quickly - faster than a person or a car can deliver the message. We realized that Carrier Pigeons were a natural choice."

Co-Founder Patrick Sullivan expanded on the project further: "We are always on the bleeding edge. Now that we have integration with Voice, Video and SMS/MMS we had to think outside the box. When sitting in our conference room talking about the future of business communication, we noticed a vast amount of resources sitting outside our window – Pigeons. Most see dirty animals with wings. We see a way to deliver secure messages to places that might not have fiber or any other transit to get information to. We also believe everyone has a crazy uncle or aunt ‘living off the grid’ and you might want to communicate with them. We now have a way to do just that. This gives us a huge advantage over the typical CLEC/ILEC infrastructure. The opportunities are endless.”

The program is in Beta and is invite only. Project “Carrier Pigeon” will launch publicly in the next couple months. 2600hz has already received multiple Silicon Valley investment offers and hopes to display the technology live, on stage, at TechCrunch, with other successful projects such as Pied Piper.
