Aalborg, Denmark (ots/PRNewswire)
- Proximus, Belgium's largest
mobile operator, and End2End, Europe's leading managed service
solution provider for mobile data services and content, today
announced that they have further expanded their partnership to grow
the mobile games market in Belgium.
The two companies first partnered in early 2003 to deliver Java
games to Belgian mobile subscribers via Proximus' Game Zone. The
relationship was expanded in June 2004 when End2End began delivering
the Vodafone live! Games Arcade for Proximus as a managed service
Proximus has now upgraded to the latest version of End2End's
Content Delivery Solution (CDS) to power its Vodafone live! Games
portfolio, as well as outsourced related content processes to
leverage End2End's expertise in mobile content.
End2End's CDS provides a future-proof platform that enables the
delivery of any content to any device and is currently used to power
the delivery of content across 20 countries. The new version of
End2End's CDS provides a feature-rich platform that accommodates all
of the latest Vodafone live! requirements, enabling Proximus to
continue growing the market for mobile games.
In addition to the CDS upgrade, Proximus has outsourced the
commercial and operational management of the majority of its games
providers to End2End. As part of the agreement, End2End is
responsible for handling commercial contracts, testing, reporting and
settlements with respect to Proximus' games providers.
"End2End continues to demonstrate its market leadership in
providing managed service content delivery propositions," said Xavier
Huberland, Director Consumer Mobile Division, Proximus. "With
End2End, we are continuously able to leverage not only a great
technical solution, but also complementary services, such as the
outsourcing of processes around mobile games."
"Outsourcing of processes is one of the major upcoming trends in
mobile content delivery," said Soren Ravn, CEO, End2End. "Mobile
games continue to be a major growth area in mobile data and we are
pleased to be working in a more strategic relationship with Proximus
to grow the market and Proximus' revenues from mobile games."
On 30 June 2005 Proximus had 4,213,999 active customers(1) (41%
