Teleena Expands Mobile Virtual Network Enabler (MVNE) Services in Europe
Teleena to Launch MVNE Services in the United Kingdom
Today, Teleena announces a significant new partnership and its next phase of expansion of MVNE (Mobile Virtual Network Enabler) services in Europe.
In a, recently concluded, long-term strategic agreement Teleena will be able to sign up mobile virtual network operators (MVNOs) in the United Kingdom, aggregating them onto the radio access network of “Vodafone UK”.
Teleena’s existing next generation MVNE platform will, therefore, also offer bespoke voice, messaging, data and billing services for both pre-paid and post-paid segments in the UK.
The availability of UK MVNE services for MVNOs are planned during the fourth quarter of 2010, with a number of parties having already shown much interest.
This arrangement will make it far simpler for MVNOs wishing to launch their services in the UK, in the shorter term. As the preferred intermediary, Teleena will handle the enhanced proposition management and technical needs of the MVNO, leaving the MVNO to focus on marketing, sales and customer management. This appeals to mobile service providers wanting to truly differentiate their proposition, as they will be able to enter the mobile market and offer mobile services whilst accessing a fast and reliable radio network. Teleena is the leader of innovative and distinctive services for successful MVNOs, launching in the past 12 months a range of new MVNOs in the Netherlands, including special products like 2 number SIMs, “seamless loyalty programme” SIM cards and macro roaming SIMs for private GSM networks using pico-cells.
Timo Smit, CEO of Teleena, commented; “Teleena’s continued success in the Netherlands and our support for the MVNO market through our exceptional core network, coupled with access to top quality radio networks, are important elements for MVNOs to choose to partner with Teleena. Due to the high level of potential customisation that Teleena’s platform can offer, we can replicate these unique and differentiated services for UK based MVNOs providing guidance and support on new propositions and applications. We are looking forward to bringing a variety of new partners into our UK MVNE activities and to continue our expansion of MVNE services into other European territories.”
Teleena UK Limited, a company incorporated in the United Kingdom, will serve the needs of the UK based MVNOs, contact details can be found below.
