In Mobile telecommunications the Group began operating as a virtual operator in March 2009 through Nòverca Italia Srl, a joint venture with the Intesa Sanpaolo banking group, which owns 34% of the company.
The fact that Intesa Sanpaolo is a shareholder in Nòverca Italia is of great importance for the company, which has been set up by the two partners not only with a view to providing mobile financial services, but also with the aim of creating new uses for cell phones and, above all, new ways of accessing the services they provide.
Nòverca Italia’s proprietary technology platform represents a potent competitive advantage, enabling the company to have full control over the development of new services, to benefit from significant operational flexibility and to be able to reduce and control its costs.
The new services brought to market by the company are based on "Novità and Ricerca" (Innovation and Research), a feature that was also behind the name of Nòverca itself. The SIM Card distributed by Nòverca Italia has been called Extended SIM, reflecting the fact that it marks an important new departure for mobile telecommunications: to supply users with a growing range of services via an easy-to-use and intuitively designed menu.
The MVNE (Mobile Virtual Network Enabling) offering, born on the experience made in the development of the platform used by Nòverca Italia, is for all those who want to start new initiatives as mobile virtual operators, allowing them to focus on marketing and commercial, delegating to Acotel TLC all the technological aspects from the so-called "Mobile Core Network" to the operating systems (OSS) and business systems (SS).
