MACH, The Leading Provider of Hub-Based Mobile Communications Exchange Solutions, Unveiled

Today a New Strategy

LUXEMBOURG, Oct. 15 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

    MACH, the leading provider of solutions to simplify and accelerate the creation and operation of the mobile

communications supply chain, today unveiled a new strategy which will see the company extend its

reach throughout the wireless roaming and messaging markets, and paves the way for further expansion into

the mobile content and applications market.

    At the GSMA BARG#74 event, which MACH is hosting in Copenhagen, the company announced its

intention to play a key role in the execution and analysis of every transaction in the new "connected" world,

allowing Communications Service Providers (CSP's) to build, deliver and optimise customer-centric services

and applications.

    "To be in every transaction in a connected world, MACH will be the leading global provider in all three areas

of the mobile value chain - interconnectivity, interoperability and settlement," said Lodewijk Cornelis,

MACH CMO. "We are already well-positioned within each of these areas. Our SMS services already

interconnect operators. Our Link2One hub, Inter-Standard Roaming services and Data Clearing business

enable interoperability, and our market-leading Financial Clearing services provide settlement solutions for

operators all over the world."

    CSP's serve an increasingly sophisticated mobile consumer, while managing growing supply-side

fragmentation and complexity. The new generation of mobile consumers is accustomed to immediate, low cost

and reliable communications solutions, and demands seamless, open and flexible access to the growing

constellation of mobile internet-based applications. The rapidly growing provider population, including network

operators, internet application providers, social networks, and enterprise messaging operations, complicate

service creation and delivery, and increasing technological complexity imposes a further obstacle on the

delivery of CSP business models.

    To meet the evolving demands of a burgeoning market, CSP's must establish and formalise the right

partnerships to build innovative new applications and to bring them to market. They must streamline inter-

provider business processes to deliver services reliably, seamlessly and efficiently, and they must optimise

business performance by being first to market with new opportunities and innovative delivery options.

    MACH's new strategy is founded on the industry's first hub-based mobile communications exchange, called

HUB-XC(R). HUB-XC(R) is a unique suite of integrated hubbing applications and managed services that

connect any provider of any mobile application over any technology to build, deliver and monetise customer-

centric mobile business models. It automates high volume transactions flows to accelerate time to market, to

increase service reliability and to reduce operational costs. Because MACH's hubbing applications are at the

heart of the mobile value chain, providing many-to-many hub-based interconnectivity, interoperability and

settlement services through a single connection, they can capture and analyse transactions data to provide

real-time insight that drives business optimisation.

    "The hub-based infrastructure announced by MACH today will play a key role in supporting existing

business models and in advancing the pace of innovation in the mobile market," said Angela Stainthorpe,

Senior Analyst, Informa Telecoms & Media. "By pulling together managed service solutions that allow diverse

providers to connect, do business together and settle inter-operator liabilities, MACH is building on its core

expertise to enhance both the efficiency of the market and the experience of the mobile consumer."

    HUB-XC(R) today offers hubbing applications for business processes including roaming, SMS traffic,

business intelligence, partner management, testing, clearing and settlement, revenue assurance, and network

     "MACH's long and deep experience enabling mobile operator businesses forms the foundation for the

strategy we have announced today," said Guy Dubois, President and CEO, MACH. "For the very first time, our

hub-based exchange offers providers of all kinds a conduit through which to execute innovative, customer-

focused business ideas - eliminating complexity so that they can get on with delighting their customers."

    "It is a conduit which unites providers so that they can build new services and bring them quickly to market,"

Mr Dubois went on to say. "It connects providers so that they can deliver those services to optimise the

customer experience. And it empowers providers to seek out new business opportunities, to realise those

opportunities, and to protect revenue and maximise profitability. Today marks the beginning of a very exciting

future for MACH and for the mobile market."

    MACH is the world's largest provider of clearing and settlement solutions, and serves 650 customers with

market-leading roaming, messaging, content and interconnect services. MACH already handles the

majority of the world's roaming invoices and processes the majority of all Near Real-time Roaming Data

Exchange (NRTRDE) files globally. MACH's Link2One roaming hub is the largest fully-operational, global

coverage roaming hub in the world.
