StarHub, Singapore’s fully-integrated info-communications company, has successfully launched its new virtual mobile number service based on fonYou’s carrier grade OMT-9000 service platform.
Called “2-in-1 LINE”, the StarHub service offers its customers a second mobile number on their existing phone and SIM card. After installing the 2-in-1 LINE smartphone app, customers will have access to a new range of cloud-based “over-the-top” services, such as visual voicemail, real-time call register and advanced filtering and blocking functions for incoming calls.
In a country where the mobile population penetration rate exceeds 150%, there is an obvious need for people to have a second mobile number, for example, to separate personal and business calls. StarHub’s 2-in-1 LINE service addresses this need, delivers greater value to customers and at the same time strengthens customer loyalty.
“The launch of StarHub’s 2-in-1 LINE marks the first successful operator deployment of fonYou’s cloud services in Southeast Asia”, says Fernando Núñez-Mendoza, fonYou’s CEO. “We’re excited to be working with StarHub, which is well-known to be an innovation leader in the region.”
fonYou, a global technology company based in Barcelona, provides Smart Voice and Messaging solutions for mobile carriers. The company has developed a proprietary service platform, the OMT-9000, which is connected to the mobile operators’ existing core networks and enables them to offer a wide range of smart value-added services to their end customers.
The distinctive advantages of fonYou’s service platform are short integration time with any type of operator infrastructure, platform robustness, low CAPEX needs and a range of innovative, market-tested and ready to be deployed value-added services. The OMT-9000 service platform is at the core of fonYou’s end-to-end solutions that include everything from technology and service design to smartphone apps and market entry strategy.
After its first initial deployments in its home region Europe, fonYou has recently developed a number of new smart voice and messaging services directed at carriers in developing markets with large prepaid customer bases. Together with fonYou’s advanced could-based services, such as XtraLine, these new services complete fonYou’s product portfolio to satisfy carriers’ needs for innovative value-added service anywhere in the world.
