Syniverse Extends LTE Roaming Reach for Telin
TAMPA, Fla. – Oct. 1 – Syniverse and Telin today announced that they have signed a multiyear agreement to provide Telin, one of the largest network service providers in Southeast Asia, with 4G roaming and signaling connectivity through Syniverse’s IPX Network Solution. Through the agreement, Syniverse will enable Telin to deliver seamless LTE roaming services to its sister company and Indonesia’s largest operator, Telkomsel, which has more than 120 million subscribers.
“Collaboration with Syniverse has strengthened Telin’s capability in delivering LTE roaming services to customers,” said Natigor Sitorus, Director of Marketing and Sales, Telin. “In addition to the increased capability in infrastructure and footprint, the agreement will also enhance Telin’s portfolio in the business sector by providing an interoperable and versatile network.”
Syniverse’s IPX Network Solution interconnects the world’s networks to make LTE roaming possible. The IPX Network Solution provides a carrier-grade connection to the company’s all-IP network, which currently serves more than 2,000 LTE roaming routes. The enhanced roaming reach Telin achieves through Syniverse’s IPX network is supported in part by Syniverse’s Diameter Signaling Service, which enables signaling routing and interoperability. Together, these solutions deliver multiple class-of-service levels to support voice, data and video with guaranteed security.
Indonesia and Asia Pacific represent a critical market for LTE roaming in the next few years, according to GSMA Intelligence. The region has half of the world’s subscribers and connections, with 1.8 billion and 3.8 billion, respectively, and smartphone adoption is forecast to rise from 40 percent in 2015 to over 50 percent by 2016, and reach 66 percent by 2020.
