Celframe has long believed that over time companies tend to get comfortable doing the same thing, just making incremental changes. But in the technology industry, where revolutionary ideas drive the next big growth areas, we need to be a bit uncomfortable to stay relevant.

Pudur’s telecom division is in the processing of acquiring licenses in several countries in Asia and Africa. Pudur telecom operations are divided intoVirtual Network Operator, Virtual ISP and Mobile Virtual Network operator
Pudur as aVirtual Network Operator who will be primarily an operator providing various services to an end consumer by using the underlying network of an NSO (Network Service Operator). Moreover, with the rapid advancement of technology, the business model of a VNO is continuously changing. Many leading companies including Virgin Mobile operates as a VNO. In US about 300 MVNOs operate. Pudur will typically leases bandwidth at the wholesale rates from various telecom providers in order to provide solutions to their customers. The VNO concept is relatively new in the African markets when compared to the European and Asian markets.
Fully virtual VNO like Pudur Telecom does not need any technical facilities or technical support, instead we rely on support delivered by infrastructure providers. VNO concept has received a lot of traction in the wireless industry as cost of infrastructure is substantial. Recently pressure on margins caused many wireline operators to consider going with VNO model and cut capital expenditures as well as staffing requirements to maintain and upgrade the infrastructure.As the global networks have become more complex, an emerging field of telecommunications “Logistics” providers has developed. These companies assist in the management of large networks which span across multiple carriers much in the same way that the Virtual Network Operators had, but this new breed of services providers have been willing to build their own networks and own infrastructure.
As a Virtual ISP (VISP) purchases services from another ISP (sometimes called a wholesale ISP or similar within this context) that allow the VISP’s customers to access the Internet via one or more Points of Presence (PoPs) that are owned and operated by the wholesale ISP. Virtual ISPs can vary from a normal ISP buying access points off a third party to a complete white label service where the branding of the VISP is usually such as to portray the image of being an ISP in their own right.
As aMobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO), or mobile other licensed operator (MOLO), is a wireless communications services provider that does not own the wireless network infrastructure over which the MVNO provides services to its customers. We enter into a business agreement with a mobile network operator to obtain bulk access to network services at wholesale rates, then sets retail prices independently.We use our own customer service, billing support systems, marketing, and sales personnel, or it could employ the services of a mobile virtual network enabler (MVNE).
How different is Pudur MVNO?
- MVNOs are new breed of wireless network operators who do not own the wireless spectrum, or wireless infrastructure (also termed pipe, in colloquial terms) but give a virtual appearance of owning a wireless network. We lease the pipe or wireless capacity from traditional operators and then repackage it for a specific vertical industry application. This keeps our costs very low.
- Main added value that MVNO provides is billing and customer care functions. In that sense MVNOs own the customers.
- MVNOs generally provide both voice and data services to end users through a paid up subscription agreement.
- To become an MVNO, one should cobble together a partnership that consists of a connectivity of a regular telco, a customer base, and a sales channel. Most important, they need unique and compelling data services.
Pudur MVNO Services –
For now Pudur MVNO services have been limited, but expect wireless services to grow, so will the availability of our niche MVNO applications. For instance, in the future a cell phone user may be able to subscribe to a network operator plus multiple MVNOs for specific data services over the same phone. Pudur MVNO intent to provide sports news, another weather and traffic and also provide instant messaging capabilities.
Pudur MVNO’s will offer voluntary MVPN services based on the IPSec or Mobile IP VPN client to their customers, which allows to terminate the IPSec connection at a VPN gateway or HA in the MVNO data center and also supporting multiple access technologies.In this way, Pudur’sMVNO and the network operator could focus on their own niche markets and form customized detailed services that would expand their customer reach and brand.
