Comfone and Infobrain establish independent Swiss Clearing Unit

Initiative brings together both companies’ GSM proficiency to create a concentration of clearing competence in Switzerland

(PresseBox) ( Berne, )
Comfone, the Swiss-based roaming specialist and provider of roaming services to more than 300 mobile operators around the world, and Infobrain, a global market leader in providing systems for GSM/3G roaming and TAP3 data management, today announce the establishment of an independent Clearing Unit. The new unit provides Data and Financial Clearing services for mobile operators and is based on state-of-the-art Data and Financial Clearing systems, NRTRDE, RAEX and Fraud Prevention Solutions.

The announcement is in line with Comfone’s strategic initiative to become the telecoms industry’s leading, independent hub provider of integrated solutions for mobile operators. With over ten years of experience in roaming services provision, Comfone offers a wide range of in-house services, including signalling, financial clearing, hubbing, WLAN roaming, convergence and data services. Until today, Comfone relied on existing data clearing platforms to support the provision of its data clearing service. Now, with the setting up of the new Data and Financial Clearing Unit, Comfone completes its portfolio of in-house services and secures its position as a fully independent roaming, inter-carrier and hub services provider.

The new Clearing Unit, provided in partnership by Comfone and Zürich-based company, Infobrain, ensures premium quality functionality, Swiss precision in data handling and exceptional customer care. By combining Infobrain’s and Comfone’s expertise in the data and financial clearing business, customers profit from a concentration of clearing proficiency in Switzerland. The new Clearing Unit will be fully operational by the end of 2008 and is to provide Data Clearing, Financial Clearing, NRTRDE, Fraud Prevention and RAEX Services. All industry standards will be supported.

Mathias Prüssing, CEO Comfone, said, “I am convinced that the launch of our independent Clearing Unit offers mobile operators a concrete alternative in a consolidated market. Together with Infobrain, we are committed to provide dedicated services supporting the data exchange between mobile operators with the Swiss quality our customers demand.”
