Belfast, UK – 1 August, 2012 Aepona announced today that its Network as a Service (NaaS) solution has been chosen by US mobile operator Cricket Communications (www.mycricket.com
), a leading provider of unlimited wireless services.
Cricket will use Aepona’s NaaS solution to attract application developers and content providers to their network, enabling the creation of a wide variety of exciting, differentiated applications and services, and allowing Cricket to utilize its network, billing and informational assets in new and innovative ways.
