BICS Cites Rapid Rise in LTE Roaming

There has been a rapid increase in the number of operators deploying LTE roaming during the last year, with services now available in 75 countries, according to BICS, which provides wholesale carrier services.

Operators using BICS' IP exchange (IPX) platform can offer customers access to LTE roaming sessions with over 150 operators, through either direct connections or peering agreements.

Following pioneering launches in Asia, North America, Europe and Africa during 2013, last year saw widespread adoption in countries across the globe, including: Russia, South Africa, the UAE, Saudi Arabia, France, Poland and Rwanda. Carriers launching the service are able to offer their customers, and visitors roaming onto their network, access to the highest quality data services - driving revenues and increasing the quality of experience for end users.

"The growth in the number of networks offering LTE roaming services last year was astounding," said Mikaƫl Schachne, VP Mobile Data Business, BICS. "We can now expect carriers to begin utilising the whole spectrum of services enabled by IPX, including deploying next generation voice services and value added packages for subscribers, to further enhance services for their own customers and incoming roamers."
