CES serves as the backdrop for big announcement from Syniverse and Samsung


    Syniverse – a Tampa company that provides services for mobile network operators and businesses – and telecommunications technology giant Samsung SDS say they want to simplify mobile payments for anyone with a phone.

    The two companies have signed a memorandum of understanding to develop a wallet-agnostic, mobile payment platform. The new platform will enable regulatory-compliant and cross-region mobile transactions for mobile operators and businesses in logistics, financial, travel and hospitality, media and entertainment, and retail markets.
