San Francisco, CA. – Nov 13, 2012 – Today Telespree Communications, a leading enabler of cloud-based wireless data services for carriers, retailers, MVNOs, and wholesale providers, , announced an agreement to provide real-time 4G data usage monitoring services to Clearwire Corporation, a leading provider of 4G mobile broadband services in the U.S. Clearwire will leverage Telespree's on-device service enablement, active session monitoring, real-time charging, and proactive alerting services to provide a broad range of capabilities to support their mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) wholesale customers across their portfolio of data devices.
"Telespree is a preferred partner and its Mobile Services Platform enables Clearwire to offer enhanced 4G mobile broadband services to our wholesale partners and their customers," said Rick Hausman, VP of Wholesale Operations at Clearwire. "Telespree's real-time capabilities increase the flexibility and competitiveness of our wholesale 4G offering in the marketplace."
By incorporating Telespree's Mobile Services Platform, Clearwire wholesale customers will be able to offer subscribers on-device real-time tracking and notification/alerts of their 4G data usage. In addition, Telespree will provide rating services that support diverse data offerings like family or share plans for use across multiple devices, pay-for-use plans that help avoid bill shock, and tiered plans that enable different consumption thresholds at different prices.
MVNOs will be able to meter 4G mobile data services, track time and data usage activity, and – if needed – cut off and redirect data sessions in real time to a self-service portal for subscribers to purchase additional sessions or receive new offers. Solutions can also be integrated into the MVNOs' loyalty or other signature programs, resulting in improved subscriber interactions and increased customer satisfaction. The real-time data services are easily configured to fit the different market segments, business models, products and budgets of MVNO customers.
"Telespree's suite of mobile data services supports Clearwire's leadership in delivering best-in-class 4G mobile broadband services," said Ellen Schwab, chief executive officer of Telespree.
