Telefonica has announced that it will support its multinational customer requirements for wireless services in the USA with a "white label" service provided under contract with Verizon Global Wholesale. Under the terms of the mobility contract signed this week, Telefonica will manage and brand the wireless services it provides to its MNC customers in the U.S., as well as bundle the services with others it offers.
The agreement was signed by Telefonica International Wholesale Services (TIWS) on behalf of the Telefonica Group. Jose Ramon Vela, CEO of TIWS, said, "This partnership reinforces our current relationship and is key for us to support our customers in the USA." Telefonica has a number of enterprise-sized customers in the U.S., including major European banking institutions.
Verizon Global Wholesale's Mobility Service includes wireless voice, text messaging and broadband packages. It provides a choice between per minute and per megabyte bulk pricing, as well as bundled voice and data plan pricing options. Through these options, as well as the availability of a suite of BlackBerry solutions, wholesale clients can customize their offerings to address the specific needs of their customers. Verizon Global Wholesale also provides technical expertise in sales and support and carries an inventory of white-labeled handsets and aircards available for purchase and customization.
