Ooredoo Enhances 4G Roaming Experience with Syniverse IPX Solution
The agreement builds on Syniverse’s 20-plus-year relationship with Ooredoo Qatar, making mobile work with the critical data clearing and financial clearing necessary to ensure efficient, reliable roaming processes.
“Ooredoo continues to invest in new solutions that enhance the customer experience and build our position as a market leader in data services. The increased bandwidth supported by the IPX Network will enable customers to enjoy the incredible speeds of our bigger, faster network even when they travel outside of Qatar,” said Yousuf Al Kubaisi, Chief Executive Officer of Ooredoo Global Services (OGS).
Syniverse’s IPX Network Solution provides a carrier-grade connection to the company’s all-IP network that currently serves nearly 800 LTE roaming routes, with LTE reach across more than 200 operators in 44 countries.

As a core component of the company’s LTE solution portfolio, the Syniverse IPX Network Solution provides a one-connection-to-multiple-services approach that aims to lower costs and boost operational efficiencies by reducing the number of network connections a mobile service provider must manage.
