Deutsche Telekom launches LTE roaming service
Deutsche Telekom ICSS has launched its LTE Diameter Signaling service, enabling its customers to roam over 4G networks while abroad.
Launched via its IPX, the service aims to overcome interoperability issues and is said to enable seamless roaming across different mobile standards.
Through its IPX network, ICSS is said to be able to connect its LTE roaming customers with more than 800 mobile networks.
“Our state-of-the-art LTE Diameter Signaling service delivers extremely high-quality signalling services, consistent access to 2G, 3G, and LTE mobile networks and more than one million WiFi hotspots around the world,” said Holger Magnussen, SVP, Deutsche Telekom International Carrier Sales & Solutions.
“In fact, we are the only global Tier 1 provider that offers an integrated portfolio of cellular and WiFi technologies.”
It has been a busy month for Deutsche Telekom, which last week revealed that it had acquired GTS Central Europe for €546 million.
The German operator will now be able to deliver integrated products and services to businesses in eastern Europe, via GTS’s fixed-line, fibre-optic infrastructure.
An acquisition was rumoured in May this year, and Deutsche Telekom said in a statement that its success will strengthen the company’s position in the business-to-business segment.
The transaction is still subject to regulatory approvals.
