MUMBAI, India -- Tata Communications, a leading provider of the new world of communications, announced today a partnership with Bharti Telesoft, a leading mobile VAS solution provider, resulting in the launch of its Intelligent CAMEL eXchange (ICX), a value-added service that enables mobile operators to significantly reduce the time frame, cost of implementing and maintaining CAMEL roaming relationships.

In August 2008, Tata Communications offered its ICX service on a limited-availability basis to four of the world’s largest mobile network operators, allowing them to open up CAMEL-based roaming to one of China’s largest mobile phone operators in time for the Beijing Olympic Games. Based on the vastly successful outcome of Beijing, the ICX service is now available to support live traffic to other destinations, opening the floodgates to destinations outside of China.

With ten operators already connected to the ICX platform, Tata Communications currently offers CAMEL roaming and connectivity to China, the United Kingdom, Romania, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Sweden, with more than 30 additional operators committed to utilizing the service globally. Tata Communications offers mobile network operators with the promise to fast track CAMEL roaming with key roaming partners worldwide.

“Tata Communications is committed to offering the most innovative services to our customers worldwide and we’re pleased with the response of our customers to the ICX service,” said Allan Chan, Executive Vice President, Mobility Services for Tata Communications. “Our trial participants are now able to open service to other destinations to help them go beyond Beijing and fast track their roaming reach around the world.”
