IP exchange enables LTE roaming in MENA

Operators across the Middle East and North Africa will be able to offer seamless LTE roaming services via an extension of IP exchange (IPX) services. Kuwait’s leading ISP and MPLS service provider, Zajil, has partnered with mobile interconnection specialist Sybase 365 to combine the former’s MPLS core network with the latter’s global IPX network.

John Sims, President of Sybase 365, said: “Mobile operators in the MENA region will now have access to a full suite of IPX services, which will enable them to innovate and offer customers a seamless user experience.”

Khalifa Al-Soulah, MD and CEO, Zajil, said:  “In today’s highly competitive business environment, combining the strengths of our two companies gives us the ability to offer the highest quality solutions to our subscribers across the MENA region”. 

The partnership will facilitate delivery of LTE roaming and IPX services through the MENA region, to address the rapid growth of LTE. This will enable mobile subscribers to access high-speed data services both on the latest 4G networks as well as existing 3G when travelling abroad.

LTE deployments have skyrocketed worldwide. According to Informa Telecoms & Media, LTE is commercial on 88 networks in 42 countries, with approximately 140 total networks expected by the end of 2012. There are 10 live networks in seven countries in the Middle East & Africa, with more planned to launch before the end of the year.
