Syniverse and Mobileum are addressing security vulnerabilities in the signaling services that support wholesale roaming across multi-generational networks, while providing an extended portfolio of solutions to grow the business and improve efficiency. The collaboration between Syniverse and Mobileum will provide an advanced and differentiated option for MNOs and MVNOs to increase revenues, improve security and protect customer experience.
The teaming agreement will build a strong value proposition for MNOs and MVNOs, providing an integrated portfolio, whereby Syniverse brings global coverage with its Open Connectivity Complete solution and Mobile Roaming services, and Mobileum brings its deep security, steering, and roaming expertise to the partnership.

Said about Mobile Roaming solutions:
- Sam Barker, Lead Analyst, Juniper Research
“Multi-generational networks will continue to be in service for years to come. The signaling interfaces they utilize will become more vulnerable to nefarious acts, leaving MNOs and their customers exposed to network data and user ID theft, especially as new IoT devices are introduced. This new teaming agreement further aligns the portfolios of two industry leaders, making it easier for MNOs and MVNOs to protect their networks and their customers, and ensure service quality is maintained while roaming.”
- John Wick, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Network, Syniverse
“Syniverse’s record of innovation in mobile roaming spans decades. In fact, we created the standards that made it possible and removed the complexity of managing roaming for mobile operators throughout the world. Our work with Mobileum will allow those mobile operators the opportunity to offer their customers a more secure mobile roaming experience.”
- Kishore Vangipuram, Chief of Roaming and Network Services, Mobileum
“The synergies between our solutions makes this teaming agreement beneficial to MNOs and MVNOs around the globe. From Mobileum’s perspective, it provides our customers with more options and a simpler way to gain access to the Syniverse IPX Network, ensuring end-to-end security and protection for their roaming traffic.” Mobile Roaming
