Syniverse has announced a new agreement to enable Ooredoo Oman to extend its LTE roaming reach.
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. Syniverse’s 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.
Jim Maxwell, Chief Legal, Regulatory and Wholesale Officer at Ooredoo Oman, said: “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. Syniverse’s LTE reach is critical for advanced technologies like VoLTE and Video over LTE (ViLTE), which require extremely low latency and high speed.
“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.”
