With the goal of driving simplification, Telenor has centralized their roaming operations into one global setup, supporting all Telenor affiliates. Cellusys was chosen as a trusted partner to provide a steering of roaming solution that offered group control as well as flexibility for affiliates. Telenor as a Group now has a scalable, centralized approach to wholesale roaming and negotiation.
“Telenor is a pioneer in delivering managed roaming services to MNOs,” says Brendan Cleary, CEO of Cellusys. “The group has a unique position in the marketplace and are finding new ways to create value for their customers.”
The advanced roaming platform provides the strongest possible negotiating position as a group, by allowing select policies to be enforced from the Telenor Group, as well as to give centralized visibility over roaming traffic from all affiliates. Cellusys was recently named the No 1 Steering of Roaming Vendor in a user-based survey by Rocco.
“We are carefully choosing the best in class to partner with. Cellusys shares our vision of simplifying roaming for Telenor Group and has tailored their solution to address this shift toward centralizing traffic,” says Rickard Widerberg, CMO at Global Wholesale. “The Cellusys solution for Steering of Roaming as well as Welcome SMS reduces onboarding time and allows us to deliver high quality roaming services to the Telenor Group,“ Widerberg adds.
Features were added to achieve a higher level of integration with Telenor business processes, and migration from two other Tier-1 platforms was easily managed by the Cellusys team. “Our customers’ own objectives have always been a driving force in our engineering process,” explains Brendan Cleary, CEO of Cellusys. “Creating solutions to address the unique circumstances of operator groups is a complex challenge we are proud to be able to deliver.”
One year into the partnership, both Telenor and Cellusys are optimistic about further collaboration adding value to far-reaching solutions to bring trust, elegance and simplicity to the signalling marketplace.
