MACH to strengthen presence in Indian telecom market by hiring 100 people

Telecom Lead India:
MACH India, a global provider of cloud-based managed communication services, is
planning to expand its presence in Indian mobile market by hiring 100 people in

“We will be looking at increasing our manpower in India to
600 this year from the present 500. Majority of the new addition will be in
areas like research and development, technical service support, service
operation, etc.” Morten Brogger, chief executive officer, MACH told Telecom

The addition of 100 jobs in India is a significant step for
MACH that provides its 650 operator customers with roaming, interconnect,
messaging and direct billing solutions. Most of the Indian mobile operators
work with MACH. Its global customers include Orange, Telefonica, T-Mobile,
Telus, Verizon, Microsoft, KLM, among others.

MACH that focuses on innovation will be increasing its
investment in India. In 2011, the hub-based mobile communication solutions
provider invested $5 million in India to set up a clearing platform. MACH
claims that it is the leading clearing and settlement partner for mobile based
transactions, with more than 50 percent of financial and data clearing services

Recently, MACH developed a new service delivery platform
that allows the company to accelerate the deployment of new mobile data monetization
solutions to operators.

The platform has already been used by the company to fast
track regulatory solutions to prevent bill shock and to deliver
revenue-generating services such as its data roaming engine, which helps the
user control of their spend when roaming, while increasing subscriber service
take up and revenues.

This is a significant platform for the Indian telecom
industry which is facing pressure to improve margins. Though mobile data usage
is growing at 97 percent, operator revenues are starting to flatten out

Through its service delivery platform, MACH is able to
deploy innovative managed data services in a fraction of the time it would take
operators to deliver the same services in-house, speeding up operators’

In March, MACH launched TerraXDR, a data retention solution
enabling network operators to reduce the cost. TerraXDR is designed to lower
the total cost of ownership for data retention by 80 percent, when compared
with commonly-used relational databases or data warehousing solutions.
