VeriSign Expands into Asia, Signs SK Telecom

VeriSign has expanded its communications network into Asia to meet customer demand for improved international roaming services. The company also announced that SK Telecom will be the first CDMA operator in the region using its new network services.

VeriSign has built network Signaling Transport Points and Signaling Control Points in Osaka and Tokyo that feature best-in-class operations methodologies that help ensure high availability, redundancy and reliability. Operators using local network capabilities can increase performance and availability for intra-Asia voice and data roaming traffic. Previously, much of that traffic has to be routed back to the United States even if it is between Asian operators.

SK Telecom will be using the VeriSign Signaling System 7 (SS7) network, IMP and Roamer View services to gain route diversity, improve network availability and support advanced roaming services.
