Telefónica signs IPX deal with BICS

Telefónica Business Solutions has signed an IPX deal with BICS to expand its LTE roaming coverage.

The agreement with BICS is said to enable an increase of approximately 10% in the number of countries where Telefónica’s LTE Diameter service is available.

“Through its leading IPX platform, BICS is facilitating a fast and easy roll-out of LTE, seamless 2G/3G/4G worldwide roaming experiences and interoperability with other networks,” said Telefonica.

Telefónica believes the partnership will provide an end-to-end quality of service (QoS) within a private IP environment. 

In February 2016, the operator signed an IPX exchange alliance with TeliaSonera International Carrier (TSIC) in a deal which included roaming services on Sigtran and Diameter signalling and IPX-based IP-payload services.

Telefónica’s IPX portfolio was awarded “Best IPX Exchange” at the Global Carrier Awards 2015 at Capacity Europe
