Don't worry, no frogs involved

High performance access to file storage

3GSM Verisign, which bought Jamba, the company behind the Crazy Frog, has bought Austrian service provider 3united Mobile Solutions for E55m.

Speaking at the 3GSM conference, Verisign vice president Vernon Irvin said the purchase would bolster Verisign’s ability to offer white label products to companies that want to offer better mobile marketing.

Irvin told The Reg 3united would help ‘Madison Avenue’ firms improve their mobile offerings. He said the company had proved its success by providing infrastructure for programmes like Ultimate Hustler, and said the company would also help Verisign in Eastern Europe. 3united has relationships with Polish and Austrian telcos as well as with SingTel(Singapore) and Malaysia's Maxis.

3united is privately owned and has offices in Austria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Romania, Russia, Ukraine and the US. Rainmaker Capital advised the firm on the takeover.®
