International communications enabler BICS has been named by Kaleido Intelligence as the top vendor in the Roaming Hub and Analytics VAS (value added service) markets, as well as a Roaming Champion in several other roaming services categories.
The results, from the Roaming Vendor Hub – H2 2021, are part of the latest market research by Kaleido Intelligence, a leading roaming market intelligence and consulting firm. The twice-yearly Roaming Vendor Hub provides up-to-date rankings and scores for mobile roaming vendors across seven different product categories.
In addition to BICS achieving the number one vendor spot for its suite of roaming solutions and advanced analytics offering, the Roaming Vendor Hub also awarded the company Roaming Champion status for its Sponsored Roaming, Fraud Management and Security, and IPX services.
The research is the result of more than four months’ worth of research by Kaleido Intelligence, including product demos, questionnaires, and detailed interviews and briefings. The research covers 38 roaming vendors and wholesale providers and includes assessment of the service offerings and updated Kaleido scores for all companies. Organizations are categorized and ranked based on product leadership, unique market positioning, problem-solving capabilities, innovation leadership, and how well positioned they are to meet MNO/MVNO needs.
