Stockholm, SWEDEN—April 12, 2016 — DigitalRoute, the leading provider of data integration and management solutions globally, has announced that its MediationZone product is being deployed by The mobile operator 3 in Sweden and Denmark, Hi3G, to support the launch of the company’s innovative WiFi-Calling service across the two countries domestic markets.
DigitalRoute is delivering the ”Entitlement” component, which involves the end-user being entitled to access specific functions from within the handset.
3 is the first operator in Sweden and Denmark to offer WiFi telephony “by default”, with automatic connection to the wireless network when the mobile signal is weak. The service itself has no additional charge and is available to all customers with fixed price subscriptions.
DigitalRoute’s MediationZone software supports 3 rapid launch of the new service by providing benefits including efficient integration with the other systems involved.
DigitalRoute’s solution realizes a ”gateway” for operators that want to access individual functions for specific devices, such as synchronizing certain online services with supporting applications like CRM and Billing. It also enables tethering limitations and control for VoIP and VoWF services.
3’s new service provides an important advance in the mobile marketplace. "We know there are Swedes who have problems with their indoor coverage and therefore we have worked intensively with both technology vendors including DigitalRoute and handset manufacturers to launch WiFi- calling," said Nicholas Högberg, CEO of 3 Sweden.
DigitalRoute CEO Johan Bergh added, “Our work with 3 provides another proof point that advanced data integration and management technology is key to enabling innovation within the telco service market. Our software’s ability to converge functionality that includes aspects of traditional mediation with Policy Control and Usage Management in one horizontal solution underlines the growing value of DigitalRoute as a partner to the innovative service provider.”
