What Barlebo's teams will be selling …
Tweakker enables MVNOs to build brand confidence and better profit from average revenues per user (ARPU). With Tweakker, MVNO's have no upfront costs; only a monthly fee is charged based on user connectivity numbers.
The Tweakker Device Intelligence Cloud solution uses highly accurate device intelligence data trusted by over 100 carriers. Accurate device data is particularly important in the MVNO segment because many customers bring their own devices into the MVNO's network (BYOD).
Spirent is the only device intelligence vendor on the market that runs a daily proven in-house verification program for device data, device settings and analytics. Each day, all Spirent's 100 plus operator customers are provided new verified data, while other device management vendors offer only monthly updates, with hot updates on separate order.
