Riyadh, May 21, 2012
Mobily, the leading telecom services provider in Saudi Arabia, has awarded its MVNE (mobile network voice enabler) solution and services contract to Xius Limited, the Global Delivery Center of US-based Xius.
Xius is providing MVNE/MVNO (mobile virtual network operator) infrastructure and operations managed services as well as MVNE back-office services required for the qualification and launching of MVNO on the Mobily network and MVNE platform and ultimate offering to potential MVNO subscribers in Saudi Arabia.
Xius is employing its Mobile Services Platform infrastructure and framework, currently deployed in multiple global locations, which will provide MVNO with its own separate network components and flexible capabilities for service offerings to its targeted subscribers.
"We are very proud and excited to be working with Mobily on their foray into the MVNO market in Saudi Arabia," stated GV Kumar, managing director and CEO of Xius.
"As well, our Mobile Services Platform provides Mobily, and the MVNO it serves, with a flexible suite of network components, OSS/BSS, and VAS solutions that will be leveraged by the MVNO to offer distinct, separate, and compellingly different subscriber offerings."
"We have chosen Xius Mobile Services Platform after an exhaustive selection process that includes an extensive list of vendors," said Dr Eyas Al-Hajery, Mobily's senior executive vice president for Wholesale and Carrier Services.
"The platform will enable Mobily to provide carrier class comprehensive MNO/MVNE services to potential MVNOs".
The MVNO will be able to focus on its identified market target segment, develop unique plans and service offerings, and bring new and different value added solutions without dependence on the mobile network operator, utilizing the Xius Mobile Services Platform being installed solely for the use and utilization of the MVNO. – TradeArabia News Service
