Telef nica has selected Syniverse Technologies as its exclusive provider of roaming business management services for 11 of its properties across Latin America. Through Syniverse's GAIN Roaming Business Management Services, Syniverse will work directly with these operators to speed up the implementation of hundreds of roaming agreements.
Sergio Sánchez, Director of Business Development for P&S-Voice and Roaming, Telefónica LatAm, said Syniverse's status as a long-term, trusted service provider was a significant reason why it chose the organization to manage essential roaming management business processes for its Latin American properties.
"Telefónica properties in South America have worked successfully with Syniverse for more than 10 years and know first-hand how experienced and knowledgeable the company is when it comes to anything related to roaming," Sánchez said. "Our confidence in Syniverse's capabilities, its track record in this vital part of the mobile ecosystem, and the flexibility of GAIN means we have the best solution in place to get the most out of our roaming business in Latin America."
As part of the process to get roaming agreements quickly implemented, Syniverse also will ensure compliance with industry standards by conducting all required IREG and TADIG testing for the operators.
Because GAIN is fully customizable, Tony Holcombe, President and CEO, Syniverse said the company was able to assess the specific needs of Telefónica properties and tailor the solution to meet their exact requirements.
"Based on 20 years of knowledge and expertise, Syniverse offers a solution that is flexible enough to provide any operator with precisely the roaming knowledge and resources it needs at any point in the roaming process - whether that need is end-to-end roaming management or filling resource gaps in an already established roaming department," Holcombe added.
