The Company provides traditional telecom services, media streaming, and distribution services primarily to the business-to-business (B2B) community within the telecommunications market where it has a presence. The Company's global footprint as a fully licensed carrier, supported by its propriety IN (Intelligent Network) and Billing/CRM (Client Relationship Management) Systems, has been designed to offer cutting-edge solutions to the increasingly competitive global multimedia industry. Elephant Talk's telecommunications platform eliminates the usual limitations caused by national borders, networks, devices or media and, therefore, enables its B2B customers to operate as independent telecom and multimedia distribution organizations.

At the same time, Elephant Talk assists its MNO partners to more efficiently provide a broad range of sophisticated services to their own existing base of MVNO's.
