Mobile solutions and services provider Syniverse has received approval from the European Commission to acquire telecoms clearing house Mach.
Vodafone Carrier Services intends to shake up the IPX (IP Exchange) market this year, with a view to taking third party providers out of the picture, according to the division’s CEO Brian Fitzpatrick.
Mobile solutions and services provider Syniverse has agreed to sell, almost in its entirety, Mach’s data clearing and Near Real-Time Roaming Data Exchange (NRTRDE) business within the European Economic Area.
Legislation being passed through European Court could radically change the EU roaming market and see operators competing for the business of travellers and the creation of an EU-wide “roaming marketplace”.
Mobile messaging firm Syniverse this week announced plans to acquire the messaging unit of US tech and security company VeriSign for $175m in cash.
