Across all Network Standards– Ensuring Best User Experience
BARCELONA, SPAIN – FEBRUARY 27 2012 – GSMA MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS —Sybase 365, a subsidiary of Sybase, Inc. the global leader in mobile messaging and mobile commerce services, today launched a new Diameter Routing Hub that allows roaming flexibility to global LTE subscribers. Leveraging Sybase 365® IP Exchange (IPX) backbone and enabled by Mavenir Systems’ Diameter Routing technology, the Diameter Routing Hub is the world’s first commercial service enabling comprehensive LTE network roaming.
“As an integral part of the mobile ecosystem, Sybase 365 is in a unique position to help drive seamless LTE connectivity worldwide,” said John Sims, President, Sybase 365. “This new solution not only extends our commitment to providing operators with reliable, best-in-class network solutions, it also showcases our ability to fulfil the LTE promise of genuine interoperability while creating value for consumers.”
LTE is the fastest developing mobile system technology ever; however, current deployments have had little or no roaming support. With Sybase 365 Diameter Hubbing capability for LTE Roaming, operators will be able to offer roaming to their LTE subscribers who venture to other compatible LTE networks around the world. This will enable consumers to access services and enjoy a seamless experience as they roam into other network environments.
“Roaming is a key enabler for the rapid growth and adoption of LTE,” said Pardeep Kohli, President and Chief Executive Officer, Mavenir Systems. “Our partnership with Sybase 365 will bring mobile operators more cost effective and innovative solutions to interconnection and service launch challenges.”
LTE technologies have skyrocketed in deployments and subscriptions on a worldwide basis. According to Informa Telecoms & Media, LTE is commercial on 57 networks in 34 countries with more than 100 total commercial networks expected by the end of 2012. As more devices supporting LTE networks are launched, seamless roaming will become extremely important, yet challenging for operators. To solve this issue, Sybase 365 Diameter Roaming Hub enables seamless authentication between the visited network and the subscriber’s home network, allowing the subscriber to roam onto a new network without restriction.
