TravelSIM Australia and Syniverse Deploy Data Stretcher Advantage to Optimize Mobile Users’ Global Connectivity
MIAMI, Australia; SANTA MONICA, Calif.; and TAMPA, Fla. – Feb. 25, 2020 – TravelSIM, the mobile phone service for international travelers, in partnership with Syniverse, the world’s most connected company, today introduces Data Stretcher as a service to all mobile users who purchase TravelSIM. This new data optimization feature reduces data consumption so that mobile users can enjoy their data allowances going much further.
Data Stretcher is a default-on service for all mobile subscribers and available as part of the TravelSIM App. This is a new service to support the company’s mission to reduce the cost of using mobile phones when traveling overseas while maintaining a superior mobile data user experience.
As a leader in mobile innovation, TravelSIM has partnered with Syniverse, in cooperation with Mobolize, to deploy this unique, on-device data management engine that controls the bit rate delivery speed of streaming video to right-size it for a mobile device. Additionally, the solution also caches popular content to further reduce data consumption and enhance data performance. These two data optimization techniques enable up to 80% data savings.
Syniverse deployed Data Experience Optimization as an innovation to help achieve its mission to provide products and services that drive success for its partners. TravelSIM is first to market with this Syniverse and Mobolize solution. Data Stretcher is available to all prepaid TravelSIM®+ subscribers.
