(OTCQB: DJAK) (OTCQB: DJAKD), a leading MVNE (Mobile Virtual Network Enabler) in the telecommunications industry has signed an MVNO deal with Sprint. This contract allows Unified Signal to enable other authorized MVNEs, MVNOs, as well as its own internal Datajack MVNO to sell wireless services using the Sprint network. Unified Signal's SaaS (software as a service) based billing and back office solution enables companies in virtually any industry sector to resell wireless service as well as other telecom services using their existing brand. Unified Signal's turnkey telecom billing solution allows its clients to sell, provision, fulfill, and care for multiple telecom services, including pre and post-paid wireless, local, long distance, Internet, and now even mobile commerce.
Unified Signal's Chief Executive Officer, Paris Holt, states; "After spending an entire day meeting with all of Sprint’s MVNO support and executive team in Overland Park, we have come to the conclusion that Sprint has positioned itself very well in the marketplace and we feel that its network build out and its current technology infrastructure investments makes Sprint a leader on many fronts in the wireless industry now and in the years to come. Unified Signal needed a carrier that will allow it to integrate deeper into its wireless switches and allow Unified Signal to deploy its new and innovative technology that it has been developing for the last 18 months. This technology will change the wireless landscape and help make Sprint’s CDMA network become significantly more appealing in the global marketplace which is predominantly GSM."
Unified Signal's technology infrastructure allows its clients to implement faster, have much more control of the system, and is far more cost efficient than competing billing and back office systems. Unified Signal also enables its clients to private label their own mobile wallet including integration into a fully featured prepaid debit card
