Syniverse to Enable LTE Roaming for Claro Brazil in Advance of World Cup

In advance of this summer’s FIFA World Cup, Claro Brazil is enabling LTE data roaming for its subscribers with Syniverse.

Hailed as the biggest single-event sporting competition in the world, the World Cup will attract approximately 500,000 soccer fans from around the world.

As part of the agreement, Syniverse will provide a range of interoperability solutions that enable Claro Brazil to deliver high-speed LTE data to its subscribers while travelling. Visiting mobile will be able to seamlessly receive high-speed access to data on Claro Brazil’s network, fostering the growth of new inbound roaming revenue streams for the operator. Claro Brazil was the first mobile operator to offer LTE service in Brazil with the 2012 launch of 4GMax.

“LTE roaming enablement is much more than just a short-term benefit, as it promises multiple benefits that Claro Brazil can expect to reap long after the World Cup,” said John Wick, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Mobile Transaction Services, Syniverse. “Our focus is on ensuring our customers are equipped to deliver the experiences their subscribers and visiting roamers expect anywhere, anytime.”

Claro is an existing customer of Syniverse’s IPX Network solution, which serves as the critical network foundation to enable LTE roaming. In addition, Syniverse will provide Claro with its Diameter Signalling Service, which enables 4G signalling while simplifying the process by which the operator can add bandwidth to the IPX connection in preparation for periods of increased usage.

“As mobile users grow accustomed to the speed and innovation of LTE, they will increasingly expect access to the same quality of experience with data service wherever they travel,” Wick said. “Syniverse’s LTE roaming solutions ensure that users will have a seamless, trouble-free experience as they roam from one LTE network to another, anywhere in the world.”
