Solutions for Mobile Operators
The mobile Internet has changed how we live and work: for some subscribers, mobile data is a welcome convenience; for others, it’s a life-changer.
Different access technologies (e.g., LTE, 3G, Mobile WiMAX) and payment models (e.g., prepaid, postpaid, pay-as-you-go) combine to create a diverse mobile market, and mobile network operators (MNOs) are always pushing technologies and services further.
For many years, we’ve worked with MNOs to help them achieve their business goals; in fact, roughly half our revenue comes from the mobile market.
Our large or multinational customers Telefonica, Digicel, Millicom, Etisalat, SMART, and others often garner the headlines, but we’re just as adept at meeting the specific needs of our regional customers C Spire Wireless, GCI, VivaCell, Econet, and more.
Success Story: Digicel Wireless Delivers Free Basics by Facebook
Free Basics by Facebook provides subscribers with free access to basic Internet services—connecting people who are otherwise unconnected.
Digicel has embraced this initiative, and is introducing Free Basics at multiple properties throughout the Caribbean and Latin America. To expedite service launches and ensure they work correctly, Digicel’s Free Basics deployments use a standardized API within Sandvine’s network policy control platform to connect directly to Facebook for service updates.
Success Story: VivaCell-MTS Offers a Zero-Rated Perk
VivaCell-MTS has been using Sandvine’s subscriber services solutions since 2009 to help them achieve their commitment to provide innovative and quality services to Armenia’s subscribers.
Success Story: Econet Knows Exactly How to Delight Their Customers
Econet Wireless Zimbabwe introduced fixed-price bundles that let subscribers use as much WhatsApp as they want per month, per week, and even per day. Subscribers can share photos, videos, voice notes, locations, and files on their favorite application—with no cost surprises.
