LUXEMBOURG -- Link2One announced today that 22 operators have signed agreements to join its Link2One Open Connectivity Hub.

Link2One has moved quickly since its inception in February 2008 to build a multilateral GSM roaming hub that includes signalling, clearing and settlement, agreement management and value added services. This multilateral approach enables operators to access networks around the world with just one link and one agreement.

With the proliferation of operators and the advent of networks that will be based on new technologies, the complexity of managing partner relationships is increasing enormously. Roaming managers are faced with coordinating hundreds of agreements and tests. Plus, the launch of new products and services to all partners is a slow and complicated process. For newer operators, the cost in time and money of developing worldwide roaming relationships is virtually prohibitive.

“Having worked in the roaming industry for many years,” said Link2One Chairman Peter Coates, “we’ve seen roaming managers under increasing competitive pressure to create a seamless roaming experience for their customers. Not only for voice, but for data, SMS and MMS as well. That’s why we started Link2One. Our goal is to help operators increase profitability by making it easy to obtain worldwide coverage.”
