Syniverse to accelerate IoT, 5G business value creation

Syniverse has announced the launch of the Syniverse Innovation Lab, a new demonstration, development and testing center that brings together customers, partners and other technology players to trial new ways and business models to address the rapid digital transformation, the company said.

Specifically, the Lab will drive next-generation services for the Internet of things (IoT), 5G, blockchain and artificial intelligence.

Initially, trials in the Syniverse Innovation Lab will focus on the areas of IoT and 5G and will then expand this to other important emerging areas, such as blockchain.

The recently launched Syniverse Secure Global Access is a critical network underpinning the Lab providing private, secure global connectivity that enables businesses to protect their mission-critical data in an age when emerging technologies like the IoT are exposed to greater levels of risk from the public Internet.

Located at Syniverse´s global headquarters in Tampa, Florida, the Lab is launching with a variety of state-of-the-art demonstrations, including Pepper®, the humanoid robot designed by SoftBank Robotics, which will greet visitors and offer information about the Lab.

Syniverse sits at the center of the mobile ecosystem, where it connects 7 billion mobile devices and enables businesses to securely connect, communicate, and transact with their customers to drive growth in the age of digital transformation. We accomplish this by processing billions of transactions every day and settling approximately USD 15 billion annually for mobile service providers. For 30 years, Syniverse has been simplifying complexity to deliver the promise of mobility — a simple, interoperable experience, anytime, anywhere.
