Syniverse, the leading global transaction provider announced yesterday a new multiyear agreement with Bharat Sanchar Limited Nigam (BSNL). The leading telecommunications company in India, has selected Syniverse SMS Interoperability Solution to provide its subscribers with greater mobile messaging reach, facilitating instant mobile delivery of P2P SMS.
According to Syniverse, its SMS Interoperability Solution enables mobile operators to rapidly establish interworking relationships with other MNOs using just one network configuration, one testing process, one financial arrangement and one contract. New SMS destinations automatically become available as they connect to the Syniverse SMS Hub, either directly or through peering agreements.
The agreement with BSNL builds on its recent momentum in India which saw more than 30 operators and enterprises in India relying on Syniverse for a variety of solutions to make mobile work for their end users, said Syniverse.
“BSNL is dedicated to serving its subscribers by leveraging technology to provide affordable and innovative telecom services. Working with Syniverse, we will optimize our messaging system to ensure our subscribers receive the highest level of reliability and excellent service on par with global telecom operators. BSNL is making focused efforts and planned initiatives to bridge the rural-urban digital divide in the ICT sector. In fact BSNL is one of the only telecom operators in India with the reach and wide network delivering services in every nook and corner of the country.”
- Anupam Shrivastava, Director, Consumer Mobility, BSNL Board
“Global reach has become a critical component of any operator’s SMS service, but establishing separate bilateral relationships among the world’s approximately 1,000 mobile operators would be costly, complex and time consuming. Syniverse’s SMS Interoperability Solution provides a comprehensive solution for MNOs to address this, and this will enable BSNL to sign a single agreement to connect to numerous MNOs worldwide instead of multiple individual commercial agreements to establish those connections.”
