Syniverse is providing Indonesian operator Telin with 4G roaming and signalling connectivity through its IPX Network Solution.
Through the agreement, Syniverse will enable Telin to deliver seamless LTE roaming services to its sister company and Indonesia’s largest operator, Telkomsel, which has more than 120 million subscribers.
Natigor Sitorus, Director of Marketing and Sales, Telin, said: “In addition to the increased capability in infrastructure and footprint, the agreement will also enhance Telin’s portfolio in the business sector by providing an interoperable and versatile network.”
The IPX Network Solution provides a carrier-grade connection to Syniverse’s all-IP network, which currently serves more than 2,000 LTE roaming routes. The enhanced roaming reach Telin achieves through the IPX network is supported in part by Syniverse’s Diameter Signalling Service, which enables signalling routing and interoperability. Together, these solutions deliver multiple class-of-service levels to support voice, data and video with guaranteed security.
Indonesia and Asia Pacific represent a critical market for LTE roaming in the next few years, according to GSMA Intelligence. The region has half of the world’s subscribers and connections, with 1.8 billion and 3.8 billion, respectively, and smartphone adoption is forecast to rise from 40% in 2015 to over 50% by 2016, and reach 66% by 2020.
