Syniverse to Provide NTT DOCOMO with Comprehensive Wi-Fi Clearing
Syniverse today announced the expansion of its relationship with the largest Japanese mobile operator, NTT DOCOMO, INC., to provide the operator with proven and comprehensive Wi-Fi data and financial clearing solutions. The announcement marks a significant milestone in the growth of Syniverse’s Wi-Fi services.
Syniverse will enable NTT DOCOMO to follow industry standards and processes for Wi-Fi roaming, relieving the operator from internal operations and conversions that would otherwise be required and simplifying both wholesale and retail billing.
Based on the joint interfaces and standards of the Wireless Roaming Intermediary Exchange (WRIX), the Syniverse Wi-Fi Clearing Solution provides the data and financial clearing necessary for end-to-end interoperator settlement between all types of wireless local area network (WLAN) providers as well as comprehensive reporting and extensive data storage. The solution also ensures full compliance with WRIX standards, processes and interfaces for Wi-Fi clearing.
“To enable the simple, interoperable, always-on experience end users demand, Wi-Fi has rapidly moved to a must-have service offering for today’s mobile service providers,” Syniverse Chief Operating Officer Alfred de Cárdenas said. “We look forward to providing NTT DOCOMO the solutions it needs to deliver on the promise of mobility.”
Syniverse’s first Wi-Fi services agreement in Asia Pacific builds on its relationship with NTT DOCOMO, to which Syniverse also provides roaming and messaging solutions. The agreement also builds on Syniverse’s fast-growing momentum in the Asia Pacific region in which it serves more than 180 customers, including a number of leading mobile service providers. In the last year, Syniverse announced major wins in Japan, South Korea, China and India.
“The Asia Pacific mobile market is one of the most advanced in the world, and we are committed to propelling innovation for our customers and their end users,” said Windy Zou Kohl, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, Asia Pacific, Syniverse. "During the first half of 2012, we have maintained a 100 percent customer retention rate in the region in addition to winning new business, a true testament to our customer focus."
