iBasis announced that Telekom Malaysia’s mobile services arm webe has connected to the iBasis LTE Signaling eXchange (LSX).
With this agreement, iBasis is now providing webe with a full roaming solution for 4G services, including LTE signaling (Diameter/S6), LTE data roaming traffic (GRX/S8) and international VoLTE. iBasis says its multiservice IPX network will enable webe to offer consumers a high quality roaming experience and gain immediate access to the full iBasis LTE roaming footprint, which covers more than 480 networks in 170 countries.
iBasis is also providing a complete international VoLTE solution which responds to the growing demand of greenfield mobile operators for a globally interoperable IP-based voice solution. iBasis’ international VoLTE service provides cost-effective, high-quality and seamless VoLTE services over its global IPX network, said Feddo Hazewindus, president and CEO of iBasis.
“Our scale, combined with our robust LTE and GRX data roaming platforms, enable webe to cost-efficiently extend their offering globally and also quickly offer new services such as VoLTE,” said Hazewindus. “We are closely working with multiple 4G Asian greenfield operators on international VoLTE deployment in order to cope with the market dynamics and support the global spread of the new VoLTE technology.”
By operating both the data and voice networks over its own MPLS network, iBasis says it offers LTE customers an integral approach and clear roadmap to LTE connectivity.
