aql achieve GSMA Associate Member status

aql announce associate membership of the Global Systems for Mobile Communications Association(GSMA), signifying the firm’s importance to the mobile communications landscape.

Associate membership of the GSMA is open to suppliers, carriers and open connectivity service providers serving the GSM industry and the mobile ecosystem. As a major supplier of mobile infrastructure and a mobile virtual network enabler (MVNE) in the fast-expanding machine-to-machine (m2m) space, aql have been recognised as a valuable player in the broader mobile ecosystem.

As associate members aql are eligible to attend the annual GSMA leadership summit at the Mobile World Congress, which aql attend each year, including the 2013 event at the Fira Gran Via in Barcelona, Spain.

aql Head of Sales, Ray Shephardson, said:
With over a decade of experience in providing reliable, managed mobile interconnect services including messaging, voice and also signalling services, aql can only benefit from being able to interact with other networks under the GSMA framework. Our carrier relations team is looking forward to working closely with the GSMA and their membership over the coming months and years.

Melissa Hendry, aql Operations Director, also commented:
As a technical service operator we also intend to reach out to the GSMA community and hope to host GSMA technical fora within our new, 370 seat conference facility.
