New Convergent Opportunities for European MVNOs

MVNECO GmbH, a German mobile virtual network enabler (MVNE), outsourcing the end-to-end IT infrastructure-operations to CBOSS Corporation, is actively expanding its customer base by offering European MVNOs attractive high-quality services that require minimum initial investment and operating costs per customer.

Versatel, a fixed-line operator serving more than 660.000 of users, became MVNECO’s first customer. To generate new revenue streams, the operator needed mobile services to create a competitive triple play offering – including internet, telephone and mobile.

The CBOSS solution enabled MVNECO to provide Versatel with a rich portfolio of leading-edge products and guarantee superb quality of service and security. Outsourcing all mobile business processes to MVNECO allowed Versatel to concentrate on service promotion and marketing strategies. With CBOSS-driven fast time-to-market and freedom to implement innovative services, Versatel received a solid foundation for the development of a new effective business line.

Norbert Schüppler, managing director at MVNECO, comments, “The total duration of the implementation project at Versatel was less than 5 months, which, in our opinion, is quite impressive. Supported by the professionalism and expertise of the CBOSS colleagues we are bound to succeed. In MVNECO, we are committed to winning new customers in Europe and will further develop our mutually beneficial partnership with CBOSS”.

MVNECO is outsourcing the operation of the end-to-end IT infrastructure to CBOSS Corporation. From its state-of-the-art technopolis in Helsinki, CBOSS provides the MVNE with the entire range of high-performance managed services for telecommunication.
