Red Chip Featured Company: Elephant Talk Communications Inc. (ETAK.OB)

Wednesday, October 1st, 2008

Elephant Talk Communications Inc. (ETAK.OB) is an international telecommunications operator and integrator in the multimedia industry. The company provides telcom services, distribution services and media streaming to business-to-business companies within the international telecommunications sector.

Elephant Talk provides system integrator and developer services for mobile telecom and content distributors. With its work as a mobile virtual network enabler (MVNE), the company has positioned itself as a premier outsourcing partner for mobile network operators (MNO’s) and Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNO’s). It also assists its MNO partners in providing a broad set of sophisticated services to their clients. Additionally, Elephant Talk is a preferred MVNE partner with several global mobile operators that operate complicated networks in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.

Elephant Talk has a presence within the telecom sector as a fully licensed carrier, but also has proprietary IN (intelligent network) and billing/CRM (client relationship management) systems designed to offer the latest solutions in the competitive global market. These systems eliminate issues with national borders and networks, therefore enabling its B2B customers to operate as independent multimedia and telecom organizations.

Elephant Talk and Blueslice Networks recently entered into an agreement to partner in a global expansion project. Elephant Talk will take Blueslice’s next-generation Home Location Registers and deploy the equipment to multiple carriers in a number of countries to create a real network infrastructure. This will deliver a unique roaming solution that provides Elephant Talk subscribers with the ability to be recognized as local callers versus roaming callers, which significantly reduces charges incurred by customers traveling outside their home country.

“Elephant Talk sees the importance of building infrastructure and becoming a network based international telecom operator,” stated Martin Zuurbier, CTO of Elephant Talk. “By using the most advanced equipment, including the Blueslice ngHLR 3000(TM), we are able to have one point to manage our entire global network.”

Even with its international presence, Elephant Talk hopes to strengthen its position in the global telecommunications sector. Through its innovative solutions, and through partnerships with other like-minded companies, Elephant Talk intends to continue to expand and become a vital player in the competitive telecom market.
