Market for international mobile services vendor expands

Aicent surpasses its 100th carrier partnership worldwide

Mobile data services vendor, Aicent, has announced its 100th carrier partnership. It is now servicing more than one billion mobile subscribers with its data roaming and messaging exchanges.

The California-based vendor provides all of its GPRS roaming, 3G roaming, as well as international SMS and MMS services, through carriers in the Americas, Europe and Asia-Pacific. Aicent currently reaches the Australian market through a partnership with Telstra. However, according to its president and CEO, Lynn Liu, the company is in discussion with other operators locally to service a growing market.

Liu quoted figures from Informa Telecoms & Media, indicating that revenues generated from international roaming will rise from $US75.58 billion at the end of 2004 to $US211.81 billion by the end of 2010.

By comparison, data roaming exchange was still a relatively small segment of the global roaming business, she said, but it was increasing at more than 100 per cent per year based on Aicent's traffic statistics.
