Vodafone is to launch its new Vodafone Carrier Services business to the telecommunications industry at this year’s International Telecoms Week (ITW), in Chicago this week.
The operator has also announced the appointment of Brian Fitzpatrick as CEO of Vodafone Carrier Services.
The creation of the new unit within Vodafone Group Enterprise follows the company’s acquisition of Cable & Wireless Worldwide plc in 2012.
Vodafone Carrier Services combines the carrier services of Vodafone’s operating companies and CWW into one integrated global carrier business. The operator said it will deliver economies of scale and give communications service providers a single interface to Vodafone, creating cost savings and efficiencies for both parties when buying and selling.
Vodafone Carrier Services will provide CSPs with adaptable voice and data services that are ready for the next generation. The business already has more than 1,000 customers and partners around the world and offers a broad portfolio of fixed and mobile services with unrivalled global and local reach.
Brian Fitzpatrick, CEO of Vodafone Carrier Services, said: ‘The industry needs to work together to solve the commercial, operational and technical challenges of delivering end-to-end telecoms services. Vodafone Carrier Services aims to promote collaboration in the global telecoms industry – bringing together carriers and service providers from the fixed and mobile worlds to deliver new services and drive innovation.’
