“We transform emerging telco markets with our enabling strategy”
New entrants into high-growth telco markets traditionally need extensive infrastructure, technology and financial resources – but Eferio changes this.
Eferio offers a suite of technology and services covering the entire value chain from network towers to end-user handsets. We are building a new telco group – established in Scandinavia but with a primary focus on launching and managing local MVNEs and MVNOs in high-growth, Sub-Sahara African telco markets.
As our core business, we offer a combination of strategic insight, end-to-end technology, market experience and executional capacity – and through this we enable MVNOs to run their business of marketing and delivering voice, sms, data and other services to mobile subscribers.
Eferio has no direct relationship with mobile subscribers. We provide network enablement platforms and services for our MVNO partners which allows them to outsource both the initial network integration and the ongoing business and technical operations management.
We specialize in planning, implementing and managing mobile services including :
A complete suite of infrastructure-related services, such as business support systems, operations support systems, customer relationship management, and value-added services platforms.
SIM cards to match MVNO configuration requirements, including base profiles, IMSI management and reports. The MVNO activates users and manages subscriber cycles.
Business intelligence and data for regulatory needs as well as for business planning, development, and marketing purposes.
Technical support to handle issues experienced internally or by mobile subscribers.
Training of MVNO staff to manage customer services using our MVNE platforms.
Machine-to-Machine technology will reshape every aspect of the business landscape, and access to real-time, actionable data will allow organizations to better manage resources, protect assets, and respond to changing conditions. For Internet-of-Things and Machine-to-Machine providers, we offer global mobile connectivity, management system and global charging.
In recent years – after investments into networks and connectivity – many countries around the world have started deregulating their telco sectors. The goal is to increase competition in the market and to attract investors that can help modernize the existing infrastructure.
Over the coming 25+ years, the African continent will experience an exceptional demographic growth. On top of this, the markets are characterized by limited MVNO competition, strong MVNO appetite from consumer-focused brands in a variety of sectors, and strong growth in data usage and smartphone penetration.
Eferio focuses specifically on the telco markets of Sub-Saharan Africa. As these markets develop and mature, mobile subscribers will demand more diversified and segmented telco offerings and brands. Over time, the markets are expected to follow a similar path of deregulation and diversification as seen, for instance, in Scandinavia and the UK
Mobile phones are everywhere in our daily lives. The core services that MVNOs provide to mobile subscribers are likely to remain the same for the foreseeable future, but the models for delivering these services, and the customers to which they are delivered, are undergoing change and innovation.
Eferio focuses on three types of MVNO partners that we see becoming more distinct in the market:
MVNOs as marketing platforms for brands. Our focus will be on specific segments, including government, lifestyle, education, faith, sports and others. Many MVNOs already monetize the wealth of customer data they collect, and the practice of selling data to third-parties is fairly well-established.
MVNOs for the small and medium-sized enterprises. In most markets, the vast majority of businesses are small and medium-sized enterprises. We see MVNOs targeting SMEs more and more frequently.
MVNOs for the Internet of Things and Machine-to-Machine. IoT and M2M communication is becoming more and more important as enabled devices spread into every aspect of our lives. The MVNO model will enable these nascent sectors to grow.
