At MWC 2023 Syniverse, which builds and services the technologies that support human connections, will be highlighting the availability of a new key feature of Evolved Mobility, the company’s voice over LTE (VoLTE) roaming solution.
The new Outbound Roaming feature connects outbound roamers travelling from operators that have retired their 3G networks. This adds to the existing Inbound Roaming feature already available through Evolved Mobility to help mobile operators sunset legacy networks without sacrificing subscriber experience.
With the continued growth of 5G, mobile operators are looking to reallocate spectrum resources and realize opex benefits associated with the retirement of their 3G networks. Retiring these networks has become a challenge for operators looking to maintain best-in-class roaming experiences for their subscribers when they travel and must rely on operator networks that have not deployed VoLTE roaming.
Syniverse says its Evolved Mobility for Outbound Roaming is a cloud-based feature that recognizes the importance of ensuring reliable outbound roaming connectivity for operators retiring their own 3G networks. Evolved Mobility for Outbound Roaming helps mobile operators transition from their legacy network equipment without sacrificing a subscriber’s ability to outbound roam to non-VoLTE markets.
With this feature, 4G and 5G mobile devices can roam onto visited operators that do not have VoLTE roaming in place. This feature enables the subscriber to connect when they otherwise could not and delivers a multitude of benefits for the operators and their subscribers, including significant opex savings on retirement of legacy network elements and a superior customer experience that drives subscriber loyalty and revenue retention for mobile operators.
