Syniverse to Enable Wi-Fi Connectivity for Samsung in Indonesia
SHANGHAI, China – June 10, 2014 – Syniverse today announced a new relationship with Samsung Electronics Indonesia to co-develop the S Air Wi-Fi application, which will be preloaded on select Samsung devices in Indonesia and published in the Google Play store. Beginning in August, Samsung will offer complimentary Wi-Fi access in Indonesia for 90 days via S Air for users who purchase select Samsung tablets, in celebration of the launch of the new service.
“To deliver an optimal Wi-Fi experience with S Air, it was imperative that we aligned the promotion with an experienced, reputable mobile cloud enabler like Syniverse,” said Andre Rompis, IT & Mobile Business Vice President, Samsung Electronics Indonesia. “We’re confident that Syniverse can deliver on the expectation of today’s consumers for always-on connectivity and increased data speeds at their fingertips. By allowing device owners to more easily find and connect to the country’s largest Wi-Fi operators, Samsung and Syniverse are enhancing user experiences. ”
Syniverse will provide the connection management, agreement management and interoperability solutions to allow device users to simply and seamlessly access multiple Wi-Fi networks. By aggregating high-quality Wi-Fi services delivered by the country’s leading Wi-Fi providers, Syniverse will empower users with Wi-Fi coverage across the most populated regions in Indonesia.
The promotion is the latest development in Wi-Fi enablement by Syniverse, which also offers a variety of solutions that allow mobile network operators to expand their footprints and interoperate with diverse roaming partners through alternative connectivity and clearing capabilities.
By simplifying business relationships and streamlining implementation, Syniverse bridges technical gaps between new types of partners to enable Wi-Fi roaming. Once the activity has occurred, Syniverse provides settlement between all types of Wi-Fi ecosystem partners, including mobile network operators, Wi-Fi service providers and aggregators.
