Pakistani telco Warid Telecom is deploying Syniverse's IPX diameter signaling services to enable its subscribers to access LTE services around the globe, and to provide LTE service to visiting inbound roamers throughout Pakistan. According to the Pakistan Telecommunications Authority, Pakistan had more than 26.1 million 3G and LTE subscribers at the end of February, up from just 24.7 million in January.
According to Syniverse, IPX is a crucial component of mobile networks that makes LTE possible anywhere and at any time. Syniverse says it provides operators with a comprehensive solution for global LTE enablement with a carrier-grade connection to its all-IP network, which currently serves more than 2,300 LTE roaming routes with connections that reach more than 320 operators in 66 countries.
'With GSMA projecting that LTE connections will exceed 2.5 billion and reach over 60 percent of the world by 2020, mobile service providers can't afford any mistakes in rolling out LTE,' said Mahesh Prasad, executive vice president of Sales for Europe, Middle East, Africa and India, Syniverse. The company says it has enabled global LTE for more than 130 operators.
