The hot project

“Medialaan Full MVNO, bound to become the 4th mobile operator in Belgium.”

Bertrand Salomon,

Transatel co-founder

Why is Transatel called upon to support Medialaan’s MVNOs?
Transatel is the technical enabler behind Jim Mobile and Mobile Viking’s transition to Full MVNO status. The two MVNOs are currently controlled by Belgian media group Medialaan. Inked in September 2016, the agreement was in preparation since the European Commission cleared the acquisition of mobile network operator Base by Liberty Global. Remedies included a commitment to ensure Medialaan could compete effectively as a Full MVNO. Transatel was chosen to take on the challenge of establishing Medialaan’s technical independence and success in delivering mobile telephony services.

What distinguishes these MVNOs?
Medialaan now controls two MVNOs with distinct offers and target audiences: Jim Mobile and Mobile Vikings, with a current total of approximately 500K users. Jim Mobile is an MVNO brand licence based on the popularity of Jim, the Flemish radio station, a household name among the young generations. Catering to this population, Jim Mobile offers extremely affordable prepaid, as well as postpaid, plans. Transatel is helping Medialaan upgrade Jim Mobile to Full MVNO by February 2018. Transatel will therefore provide Core Network and online charging systems-related functions.

Mobile Viking subscribers call themselves ‘Vikings’ in this community-driven mobile offer, geared towards tech-friendly young urban professionals. Equally a light MVNO, Mobile Vikings is currently connected to the Base Network. Migration of the current subscriber database from the Base network onto the Full MVNO architecture will be among Transatel’s technical challenges planned from February 2018 to 2019.

Why is it particularly satisfying for Transatel to help Medialaan become the 4th leading provider of mobile services in Belgium?
This project is dear to us because it feels like a homecoming. We started our activity in Belgium back in 2002, and were at the time the first Belgian MVNO. We were so successful in this country that by 2004, our revenues in Belgium were greater than those generated in France. After a boom in our development in France and the UK, it feels terrific to be back with such beautiful perspectives and important players in the market.

The Insight

WHY LAUNCH AN MVNO?

MVNOs:

  • generate incremental and recurring revenue
  • participate in brand identity
  • and strengthen customer loyalty

Data usage is exploding, whether in private or professional contexts. Voice and texts still have a bright future ahead. Public Wi-Fi will not answer everyone's needs and will increasingly be viewed –and rightly so—as poorly secured.

Your brand has resonance?
Don't pass on the opportunity to create a mobile cellular offer that will reflect your brand's positioning and your customer's interests.

HOW TO LAUNCH AN MVNO

The steps:

  • assess your market
  • define your needs
  • and let us do the rest: OSS, BSS, and core-network related capabilities

From multi-country solutions to ethnic propositions, from Fixed-Mobile Convergence to sponsored data, Transatel has always taken the client's word for technical direction.

You're unsure of your economic projections?
Transatel has over 15 years' experience in building business plans for MVNO offers, whether local or global.

WHY TEAM UP WITH TRANSATEL?

  • State-of-the-art technical infrastructure
