mBlox Completes First Phase of Investment in Hosted Mobile Services

mBlox, a mobile transaction network, has completed the first phase of its multi-million dollar investment in delivering hosted mobile transaction services, including payment and billing, for its clients worldwide. Working with Savvis, a provider of cloud infrastructure and hosted IT solutions for enterprises, mBlox will deliver its mobile transaction services and related IT infrastructure from Savvis’ data centre in Weehawken, New Jersey.

“The reliability, footprint and industry reputation of Savvis’ virtualised and cloud infrastructure services and client support provide mBlox with a solid foundation to deploy additional mobile transaction and payment capabilities to our customers,” said Andrew Dark, chief executive officer (CEO) of mBlox. “In extension of this investment, mBlox intends to become certified as PCI DSS compliant to support our planned expansion of mobile payments and mCommerce, providing the integrity and reliability that our marquee clients and their consumers demand.”

Prior to this milestone, mBlox completed its own network platform upgrade during 2009 to employ the latest generation of infrastructure technologies, which enabled it to achieve over 3.5 billion application-to-person transactions in 2009, over 1 billion mobile transactions more than in 2008, representing a growth of 46% year-on-year. mBlox plans to further upgrade its IT infrastructure at Savvis’ data centres in Silicon Valley, London and Singapore as part of its investment strategy to expand in the global financial services industry.
