Salamanca Solutions International (SSI) was formerly a wholly owned subsidiary of wireless operator Trilogy International Partners providing products and solutions to its carrier businesses throughout the world. Trilogy and its predecessor, Western Wireless International, founded by U.S. wireless pioneers, John Stanton and Brad Horwitz, have operated carrier businesses in 14 countries typically in emerging markets and/or with 10 million pops or less.

SSI’s development started with a mediation solution that evolved into a complete suite of solutions addressing the specific needs of Trilogy’s local markets who demanded world class solutions at hyper-competitive prices. As both carriers and developers, we quickly became subject matter experts in multi-vendor integrations, migrations, support and maintenance as well as other managed services.

SSI completed its spinoff from Trilogy in July 2013 and is majority owned today by former Trilogy and Western executives, Rick Dunn, Ian Beckett and Stewart Sherriff, with Trilogy retaining a 20% minority ownership position. Trilogy also continues to be an important client of SSI today.
