Comfone records 35% annual increase in signalling traffic
With its innovative access solutions and reach to over 700 mobile operators worldwide, Comfone’s Enhanced Signalling service offers cost effective connections to global roaming destinations
Laurent Freléchoux, Product Marketing Director Signalling, commented: “This fantastic growth is the result of Comfone’s strong relationship with its customers and its successful strategy for acquiring new accounts. Comfone builds strong partnerships with operators by providing first class personalised service and support by an exceptional team of professionals. Customers are treated as individuals and provided with innovative features that continuously enhance Comfone’s Signalling service.”
Laurent Freléchoux noted further: “The signalling environment is very competitive and Comfone is aggressively extending its Enhanced Signalling service with features that help GSM operators simplify their roaming control. The broad deployment of steering of roaming as well as of number portability has both played a positive role in increasing signalling traffic.” The successful launch of Comfone’s number portability service (MNP) in Brazil, where Comfone is the signalling service provider of the four top mobile operators, is only one of many latest success stories.
The high quality of Comfone’s signalling traffic transport service along with having one of the fastest turnaround times for establishing new signalling routes in the industry are the basis for these achievements. With renowned Swiss efficiency and quality, Comfone typically opens new routes within two or three days which is significantly faster than the industry standard. As a leader in the signalling market, Comfone’s Signalling service substantially reduces operator’s operational costs while providing secure access to over 700 signalling destinations worldwide.
