Syniverse today announced a new multi-year agreement for data clearing, financial clearing and fraud-prevention solutions with Idea Cellular, India’s third largest mobile operator serving more than 122 million subscribers.

“As India approaches 1 billion mobile users, Syniverse remains committed to enabling the country’s mobile service providers to deliver the best possible experiences to their customers,” said Sanjay Kasturia, Vice President and Managing Director, India Subcontinent, Syniverse. “We are pleased to expand our relationship with Idea as it extends its capabilities to deliver exceptional end-user experiences.”

Under the new agreement, Idea benefits from Syniverse’s more than 25 years of expertise enabling roaming for mobile service providers worldwide. Data Clearing House for GSM ensures that the massive volumes of incoming roaming data Idea receives are accurately and efficiently processed in accordance with GSM Association guidelines. Financial Clearing Services for GSM enable secure and controlled financial clearing and settlement between the operator and its roaming partners, relieving the burden of tedious financial processes, so the operator can focus on its end users. And Syniverse DataNet provides a robust and cost-efficient Near Real-Time Roaming Data Exchange (NRTRDE) platform that delivers immediate access to the critical information needed to combat roaming fraud.

Idea has been working with Syniverse since 2010 when Syniverse was selected by the India Department of Telecommunications (DoT) as one of two companies to enable mobile number portability (MNP) across the country.

The agreement with Idea adds to Syniverse’s recent India momentum, including the announcement of two new IPX points of presence and a new business agreement to power Vodafone India's messaging hub for routing international SMS.

“From Wi-Fi to LTE to real-time customer experience management, Syniverse is committed to developing solutions that help mobile operators stay ahead within the rapidly evolving Indian mobile market,” Kasturia said. “Our growing presence in the region reflects our commitment to deliver first-class support to our customers.”
