Syniverse extends end-to-end LTE roaming reach for Ooredoo Oman
Syniverse has announced a new agreement to enable Ooredoo Oman to extend its LTE roaming reach by leveraging Syniverse’s IPX Network Solution and Diameter Signaling Service.
The Syniverse IPX network interconnects the world’s mobile networks to make LTE data and VoLTE roaming possible, reaching more than 270 operators through more than 2,000 LTE roaming routes.
Ooredoo Oman’s connection to Syniverse’s IPX network serves as a simplified way to reduce the number of one-to-one LTE network connections the operator must manage on its own.
“As the leader in LTE enablement, Syniverse allows us to enhance our delivery of the next-generation mobile experience that our subscribers want,” said Jim Maxwell, chief legal, regulatory and wholesale officer, Ooredoo Oman. “Through a single connection to Syniverse’s expansive IPX network, we are able to deliver LTE roaming for our inbound and outbound roamers while gaining access to a suite of hosted solutions that help us navigate roaming complexities.”
The operator also is leveraging other Syniverse solutions critical for roaming, including Syniverse DataNet to combat roaming fraud as well as its Data Clearing House for GSM and Financial Clearing Services for GSM.
“Always-evolving technology requires mobile operators to enhance network efficiency through improved connectivity and visibility,” said Nour Al Atassi, regional vice president and managing director, Middle East and Africa, Syniverse. “The interconnected global reach achieved by using Syniverse as a single connection point for greater reach and access to services positions Ooredoo Oman to meet its existing needs while smoothly transitioning to VoLTE and other advanced services.”
The agreement with Ooredoo Oman builds on Syniverse’s six-year relationship with the operator and Syniverse’s IPX momentum to enable people to enjoy the same high-quality mobile experience that they have become accustomed to at home, wherever they travel. Recent examples include Syniverse’s agreement to extend LTE Roaming Reach for Dialog Axiata, Telin and Saudi Telecom Company.
Syniverse’s LTE reach is critical for advanced technologies like VoLTE and Video over LTE (ViLTE), which require extremely low latency and high speed. As a result, Syniverse recently enabled the world’s first transoceanic VoLTE roaming call and commercial service.
