Tucows spins out Wavelo, new business to target CSP software

Jan. 27, 2022
The new company is Tucows's third privately owned business, along with Ting Internet and Tucows Domains.

Internet services and now SaaS provider Tucows has collected its communications service provider (CSP) software offerings together into an independent business entity called Wavelo, The new company is Tucows's third privately owned business, along with Ting Internet and Tucows Domains.

Wavelo's suite of cloud-based software is designed to simplify the management of internet and mobile network access. The Internet Service Operating System (ISOS) contains customizable tools for internet service providers (ISPs), while the Mobile Network Operating System (MONOS) provides a comparable package for mobile network operators (MNOs). The company offers additional a la carte services, including subscription and billing management, network orchestration and provisioning, developer tools, and more.

"Tucows is a global leader in internet services and SaaS solutions. We have operated in the telecoms industry for over twenty-five years and have always been baffled by the complexity of traditional software," said Elliot Noss, CEO of Tucows. "Modern software is needed to propel growth in this space, especially as CSPs tackle the last 30% of digital transformation. This is exactly what Wavelo will enable. This software has been used within the Tucows portfolio for years and we're proud to officially package these solutions under one standalone business."

Wavelo launches with a built-in client base. DISH has used Wavelo's MONOS software within its Digital Operator Platform since early 2021. More recently, Ting Fiber has also integrated Wavelo's ISOS software to enable faster subscriber growth and footprint expansion.
