Volantis Systems Increases Global Presence with new Central Asia Office in Pune, India
GUILDFORD, England, June 21, 2010 - Volantis Systems (www.volantis.com/), a provider of mobile
internet and content enablement software, today announced the next step in
its international expansion with the opening of its new office in Pune,
India. Already operational in the region for over four years, Volantis'
expansion into India and new office is driven by the increase of mobile
internet development throughout the region.
Volantis allows operators to deploy portals and browser-based
applications that leverage features of leading high-end devices, whilst also
supporting access by the wide array of older, less advanced handsets still in
use by many subscribers. This is particularly relevant in an emerging market
such as the Indian sub-continent where major mobile operators in the region
are beginning to offer increasingly compelling products and services across
the mobile internet. Volantis will work closely with its customers and
partners to enable them to meet consumer demand, maximizing the user
experience regardless of device whilst minimizing deployment costs.
As the fastest growing mobile market in the world, the opportunity for
the mobile internet in India is increasing, with recent research from the
Internet & Mobile Association of India (IAMAI) revealing that there are now
more than 127 million mobile subscribers with internet-ready phones
the recent conclusion of the 3G auctions in India, which raised $15 billion
for licenses across the country's 22 service areas, mobile operators in the
region are now aggressively rolling out next-generation services to
subscribers. As a direct result, the Value Added Services (VAS) market and
uptake of mobile subscriptions is growing at an exponential rate, with recent
forecasts from Research and Markets* reporting a 60 per cent year on year
growth rate and estimated revenues of $5.5 billion (INR 251 billion) in 2010.
"As a valued member of the Oracle PartnerNetwork (
www.oracle.com/partners/index.html), Volantis is helping Oracle to
support operators in the region with the management of third-party access to
their service delivery platforms, while enabling protected access to core
network resources including messaging, charging and location. The results of
our relationship have already been demonstrated in our success with joint
customers such as Aircel. I am delighted that Volantis is expanding its
footprint in the region," said Raghav Saghal, vice president and general
manager APAC and Japan, Oracle Communications.
"Volantis has seen a substantial increase in the demand for our software
and services across India from both new and existing customers over the past
6 months," said Mark Watson, CEO of Volantis, (
www.volantis.com/mark-watson). "We already have an in-depth
understanding of the market through a number of strong partner relationships
in the region, working with companies such as Bharti Airtel to deliver
compelling mobile internet experiences to subscribers across multiple
devices. It is our commitment to deliver local support to both customers and
partners that has prompted us to expand our presence in India, and our
expansion will help drive this market forward to its full potential."
