SANTA BARBARA, USA: 724 Solutions, a leading provider of next generation mobile data solutions that enable seamless access and communications in an IP-based world announced the expansion of its relationship with Xoriant, a product engineering services company focused on the independent software vendor (ISV) market throughout India, to include 724’s Seamless Access solution for India and other Asia Pacific markets.
Built upon a successful partnership with Xoriant since 2002, the expansion of the relationship to include first-line support for customers across the major cities in India will broaden the current functions of development, testing, customization, quality assurance, implementation, professional services and second-line support for Seamless Access.
Mobile internet and 2.5G data services are experiencing rapid growth throughout India. As this demand continues to grow and as 3G licenses are expected to be issued in 2010, mobile operators in India must replace incumbent older generation mobile data infrastructure to accommodate this growth. 724’s Seamless Access solution enables mobile operators to cost efficiently offer 2.5G data services today and seamlessly add on new services such as 3G and mobile broadband without disruption to existing services.
“The upcoming radical growth expected from the Indian market for 3G mobile internet and mobile broadband services will challenge the current data infrastructure and disappoint subscribers,” said John Sims, Chief Executive Officer of 724 Solutions.
“724’s Seamless Access solution coupled with our local dedicated team of Xoriant software and systems deployment expertise can dramatically improve mobile data services and the subscriber experience throughout the country. We are committed to the Indian market and believe our Seamless Access solution addresses not only the immediate growth of the 2.5G market, but also uniquely positions our customers to successfully reap the benefits offered by the explosion of growth offered by 3G and beyond.”
“We believe the highest quality solution for this market is 724’s Seamless Access Solution,” said Girish Gaitonde, Chief Executive Officer of Xoriant. “Our joint commitment to successful mobile internet and mobile broadband deployments extends beyond India into the entire Asia Pacific region.”
Throughout India and Asia Pacific, our India-based Xoriant team, under the full direction of 724 management, support 724’s installed base of customers including deployments in India, New Zealand, Philippines, Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore, Hong Kong and Taiwan.
