Telefonica Doing Better than Expected in Targets Thanks to Syniverse's Managed Services, Companies Report

By Ed Silverstein

Telefónica is performing better than expected in targets thanks to Syniverse’s Managed Services.

Syniverse is used by 10 Telefónica operations in Latin America for increased roaming footprints and increased traffic. Last year, the solution “exceeded targets for roaming service launches set by the operator, helping to extend global reach for end users and grow revenues,” the company recently announced.

“Syniverse and Telefónica have a strong history of success in delivering superior end-user experiences, and this project has played a significant role in extending reach for our subscribers,” Elena Gil Lizasoain, business development director at Telefónica Latinoamerica, said in a statement. “The expanded global footprint and improved time-to-market for launches of roaming services that Syniverse has helped realize put us in a better strategic position to continue to innovate and deliver advanced services to our customers.”

Syniverse is used by 900 mobile operators, cable and Internet providers, and diverse enterprises in some 160 countries. Syniverse’s Managed Services provide specialists in roaming to a mobile service provider. They help on such issues as implementing roaming agreements, decreasing time for services to be provided commercially and adjusting services for a provider’s unique needs as well as setting targets for service launches, according to Billing World.

Meanwhile, Telefónica recently announced at ITEXPO Miami 2013 its first U.S.-based Channel Partner Program. Telefónica resellers and partners will get new capabilities from the program such as connectivity, cloud and machine-to-machine platform services, according to MSPToday.

“This is one of the few programs that will allow our partners to sell our wide range of telecommunications and value-added solutions, from International Services to Data Center and Cloud Solutions, on a worldwide basis,” Telefónica USA CEO Marcelo Caputo said in a statement. “Together with our dedicated innovation arm, Telefónica Digital, we are constantly evolving state of the art services in high demand areas so our partners have attractive and differentiated offerings.”
