Digital transformation leaders Syniverse and Tata Communications extend their relationship to create the first fully-managed, end-to-end IPX network interconnection partnership. It will offer operators better visibility, customer service and control of the data flowing across their interconnected networks.
The way data travels across networks today via interconnection means that an operator’s IPX provider has no visibility or control of the data once it’s handed off to an interconnected network. This strategic IPX network partnership means that Syniverse and Tata Communications will work closely together to manage traffic so that there is higher quality service, greater global reach, increased capacity and improved connectivity for data travelling between the two companies’ networks. The partnership is backed by their network expertise and platforms that support 5G and internet of things (IoT), creating a comprehensive and reliable foundation for mobility services worldwide.
Through this agreement, Tata Communications and Syniverse will leverage each other’s IPX networks to expand the collective reach of directly connected global mobile service providers. This means that the customers of both Syniverse and Tata Communications will have access to the greatest number of IPX connections in the industry – approaching 300 directly connected IPX/GRX customers with a total reach of nearly 800 mobile operators representing more than 25,000 diameter roaming routes. Additionally, the customers of both companies will gain enhanced monitoring, reporting, redundancy and quality of service through this relationship. The policy solutions will offer full visibility and management of traffic on each network, plus transparent service level agreements.
The customers of both companies are able to leverage the Tata Communications MOVE mobility and IoT platform, which today connects 4 out of 5 mobile subscribers and carries around 30% of the world’s Internet routes. With this agreement, they will benefit from a fully-managed, end-to-end IPX network service to enhance the performance of their mobile devices, while reducing the cost of roaming. The new partnership will also free customers from the financial and tactical burden of working with different networks in different regions, while allowing them to further the reach of their connected devices.
