As of June 15th, mobile users travelling to other countries in the EU are now able to call and surf the net without paying any extra charges. Roaming without paying surcharges, or “roam like at home” has started in all EU countries and is also expected to be be introduced in Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway shortly.
The biggest uncertainty with this transition is anticipating how quickly European customers will replicate their home use abroad and how data hungry they will be, especially with the high peak summer season approaching.
Most operators are expecting that their roaming traffic will at least triple although we have already observed that traffic was multiplied by 12 last year. And, if we closely examine high peak traffic that occurred earlier this year, like during Easter holiday, traffic reached very high peaks for multiple European operators.
We are ready to manage the unpredictability of the upcoming summer season
As of June 1st, The iBasis IPX has been upgraded to increased capacity and increased redundant capacity respectively, to ensure support for any high traffic increases without any disturbance. Over the past few months, we conducted in-depth signaling forecasts and increased planning to maintain network utilization below 40% during the peaks.
Our service management team is available to advise you on your best capacity increase options, based on traffic patterns and analysis. And when combined with our analytics solution InVision, you will immediately gain insights into numerous metrics related to inbound and outbound roamers. We will help you manage your costs while enabling secure and reliable data roaming.
