Two leading telecommunication software companies merge to create seamless innovative solutions to successfully participate, compete, and partner within the global telecom ecosystem
Telarix, the leading global provider of Interconnect Business Optimization solutions for the international voice and SMS markets, today announced its merger with Starhome Mach, the leading global provider of SaaS wholesale and retail roaming, clearing, settlement and fraud prevention solutions. The combination of Telarix and Starhome Mach creates the first and only end-to-end technology solution provider enabling telecommunication companies to optimize global connectivity in the digital transformation era. This merger will allow communication service providers (CSPs) to better serve the needs of their market segments. The merger of Telarix and Starhome Mach will lead to a new company with a community of thousands of carriers and deployments in over 400 of the largest CSPs globally across more than 130 countries.
“This announcement marks the beginning of a very exciting journey for Telarix and Starhome Mach,” said Telarix CEO Marco Limena. “As global digitalization accelerates, the rate of connectivity and interoperability among businesses, people and devices grows exponentially, with the networks of CSPs facilitating these transactions. CSPs must manage the negotiation, traffic management, and billing and settlement requirements of their complex partner ecosystems, while at the same time, ensuring healthy and profitable business lines. The newly merged company will invest in developing new products and services to address the full range of carrier solutions required to successfully participate, compete, and partner within the global telecom ecosystem.”
“Telecommunication carriers and providers are challenged with managing the complexities of achieving seamless, ubiquitous connectivity for their customers. We are seeing demand for a single supplier who can provide fully integrated end-to-end solutions. By Starhome Mach merging with Telarix, we can bring this innovation to the market and exceed customer requirements,” said Starhome Mach’s CEO, Itai Margalit. “Our success in launching SaaS versions of our leading roaming and clearing platforms introduced a variety of other innovative solutions in real-time anti-fraud, Network Function Virtualization and Internet of Things (IoT). We are excited to bring together the complementary solutions, teams and knowledge of the two companies.”
“The telecommunications market is looking to maximize and extend its network capabilities. With the developments of 5G, cloud and IoT there is more demand than ever before for seamless connectivity,” said Steve Pusey, former Group CTO and Board Member of Vodafone and current Senior Board Advisor to Telarix. “Telarix and Starhome Mach have been very successful in their respective markets. The joining together of their relative expertise creates a unique opportunity to address the market demand for full spectrum solutions. I look forward to working closely with the combined leadership of the new company as they work to redefine this complex and ever-changing industry.”
The merged company will be headquartered in Vienna, Virginia, USA and be led by current Telarix CEO, Marco Limena. Itai Margalit will become President, Roaming and Clearing Services. – PR Newswire
