Roamware Inc., the global leader in Mobile Operator Service Solutions, announced Roamware Mobile HorizonTM, a vision and 5-phase roadmap for Mobile Operator Services through 2020. The company detailed its technology direction, including the launch of a Carrier Services Cloud that provides a full and integrated suite of capabilities to mobile operators including Roaming & Local Services, Fraud Prevention, Management and Customer Experience Management (CEM) to name a few. It also announced a number of new products including version 7.0 of its pioneering and market leading NTR traffic steering product.
“As we have seen at Mobile World Congress, the Mobile industry is under tremendous pressure to deliver technologies that enable Mobile Operators to differentiate their offerings” said Ori Sasson, Chairman and CEO of Roamware. “With Mobile Horizon we are showing the Mobile Operator community a roadmap for strategic planning and development of their services in partnership with Roamware. To do this you need a multi-year view of the technologies, which Mobile Horizon provides, versus point-in-time solutions that meet short term objectives. We have the thought leadership and delivery record across a worldwide customer community to be their partner of choice.”
Roamware Mobile Horizon outlines a vision of the industry through to 2020, and describes a future environment where new services can be designed and deployed quickly, with on-the-fly provisioning, on-demand from subscribers. The 5-phase roadmap for the industry details future Virtual Service Exchanges based on open platforms, and Roamware’s 5-phase technology roadmap aligns to this with a Mobile Open Service Interface that will allow developers industry-wide to participate in new service offerings. The result will be Greater Operator Service Value, and a linkage between the infrastructure and applications that today simply operate over-the-top.
“I speak with Operators all over the world and they tell me that having the same services as their competitors only leads to commoditization. They need the ability to innovate quickly at a speed which their current infrastructure vendors such as Ericsson, Huawei or Alcatel-Lucent cannot support,” said John Jiang, Executive Vice President and CTO of Roamware. “And with the LTE build-out consuming most of their capex, they need alternate business models to innovate and differentiate. Our response is Mobile Horizon and Roamware Carrier Services Cloud.”
Mobile Horizon and Carrier Services Cloud extend beyond Roamware’s previously announced RoamCloud offering to include Local Services, Management and Financial Services capabilities not previously available. The CSC also leverages Roamware’s Macalla MFS platform currently deployed globally and the basis of Roamware’s “Social Top Up” partnership with Facebook.
