    Mobile Money, Payments & Authentication

    Posted April 18 by Mohammed Sha Director of International Marketing Communications - Asia Info

    A month has passed since the closing of the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.  But although the event lasts less than a week, its effects reverberate around the industry for many months – before the cycle in the second half of this year begins to look towards MWC 2017. Like many othe...

    You might not stop the hackers, but you can contain them

    Posted April 13 by Rui Paiva CEO - WeDo Technologies

    Communications service providers (CSPs) have, over many years, become besotted by different forms of assurance. I’m not talking about insurance here; it’s more about making sure things work properly they way they were designed to and the way customers expect them to work. Depending on...

    BSS partnerships aren’t working, we need to change our approach

    Posted April 5 by Chun-ling Woon CEO - Etiya International

    On the face of it, you’d think that partnerships would generally - if not always - be a good thing for companies seeking new routes to market for their products and services.

    Barcelona and MWC – it’s all about partnerships

    Posted March 16 by Mohammed Sha Director of International Marketing Communications - Asia Info

    So the Mobile World Congress is over for another year. Our anticipation of easier travel thanks to the new metro stop was somewhat dampened by the transport strikes, carefully timed for maximum effect.

    Clear minds look to the Cloud

    Posted March 2 by Andy Tiller VP Corporate Product Marketing - AsiaInfo

    In Barcelona for MWC last week the outlook was all clear skies with a temperature that was very acceptable for the time of year. But it seemed as if the telco service providers at the event were more interested than ever before in looking to the Cloud, and for companies like us, that means the tempe...

    Time to join the dots in fighting fraud

    Posted February 19 by Rui Paiva CEO - WeDo Technologies

    Recent headlines and cybersecurity reports have shown how the risks are increasing. Fraudsters hack systems to extract personal data so they can bombard customers with phishing scams, or they implant malware into apps so they can access and control smartphones. We now carry networked computers wh...

    Getting in the loop: improving supply and demand relationship

    Posted February 19 by Ben Zhou CEO - ZTEsoft

    Supply and demand is the most important relationship between operators and users. It is also a relationship that is now undergoing a profound change because of one single development: the fact that today’s users are always connected to a smartphone or tablet. As well as being “always ...
