iBasis, a KPN company, announced the expansion of the iBasis Global IPX network, adding more than 100 LTE destinations in the past six months. The iBasis global LTE footprint now includes more than 290 LTE network destinations.
According to the Global Mobile Supplier Association (GSA), 422 operators have commercially launched LTE networks in 143 countries, as of July 2015, and 677 operators are investing in LTE across 181 countries. iBasis’ global LTE Roaming footprint is essential to enabling MNOs to capture new revenue opportunities from LTE Roaming offerings.
iBasis’ mobile operator customers can also have immediate visibility into their roaming traffic via InVision, iBasis’ simple-to-use but sophisticated quality monitoring and management tool. The advanced analytics help mobile operators keep control over their roaming business and enhance end–user experience.
“iBasis is proud to deliver the widest reach in the market to help mobile operators accelerate the extension of LTE end-user benefits beyond their borders, especially during the summer holiday season when international roaming volumes soar,” said iBasis CTO Ajay Joseph. “We are already experiencing dramatic growth in our roaming traffic, including 30% month-over-month growth in LTE traffic, and the summer roaming season is just getting started.”
