TI Sparkle Enables Euro/LatAm Roaming
ROME -- Telecom Italia Sparkle’s LTE Diameter Signaling service is the first LTE roaming solution between South America and Europe that will enable 4G roaming for TIM Brazil and TIM LTE customers when travelling between Italy and Brazil, with guaranteed top quality of service.
TIM and TIM Brazil are leading mobile players in their home markets, respectively Italy and Brazil. TI Sparkle is Telecom Italia Group’s international operator and it has developed a global IPX network with LTE roaming peering agreements spanning from Europe to North America and Asia.
TIM and TIM Brazil will make LTE roaming available to their respective end customers in 2014. Brazil is a 4G pioneer in South America and LTE roaming availability in the country gains particular relevance in view of the upcoming World’s football championship in mid-2014.
TI Sparkle has developed a top quality LTE Roaming Exchange service based on a state-of-the-art and largely interconnected global IPX platform providing seamless IP private connections among operators who are able to offer their own mobile subscribers the same quality of service as in their home network, while roaming.
IPX offers a next-generation alternative to the internet that combines the flexibility and efficiency of the IP world with the security and reliability of traditional networks. This is particularly significant for network operators as they transition to an all-IP environment to capture efficiencies and support new services such as LTE Roaming, Voice over LTE, HD voice and video, IP videoconferencing and IMS/RCS-based enhanced communication applications.
Telecom Italia Sparkle’s IPX and LTE roaming solutions offer mobile operators worldwide the following advantages:
This makes TI Sparkle’s IPX based LTE Diameter solutions the easiest opportunity worldwide for operators planning to offer 4G roaming.
