Mobile operators around the world are launching Voice service over their LTE infrastructure (VoLTE) as the primary voice solution for their LTE subscribers. Unlike traditional circuit-switched voice, VoLTE exclusively uses IP packets over the LTE core network. Regardless of whether the call is domestic, international or roaming, is free of charge to the end user. Such a collective operational decision among the GSMA community simplifies the process of billing and settlement among MNOs, however it introduces a vulnerability for exploitation from some adversaries.
On August 2 2016, iBasis celebrated its 20th anniversary. Compared to our parent company KPN that counts more than 160 years of service, 20 years sound
In a recent interview with Agnes Stubbs from Capacity Magazine, Feddo provides perspective on the future of wholesale telecom and the role iBasis intends to play
Up to 50% of your subscribers are in possession of a 4G handset but do not have an LTE subscription or do not have access because of incorrect provisioning. But, you can’t fix it because you don’t know it. In fact, you can’t see it. Our new analytics monitoring solution, iBasis InVision, helps you turn this roaming challenge into active 4G roamers and additional roaming revenues.
“You can’t manage what you can’t see” is a popular axiom at the foundation of iBasis roaming management strategy: maximize visibility across all networks.
The InVision Opportunity Identifier, a new module within the InVision platform, enables you to quickly identify subscribers who own a 4G handset but either don’t have an accompanying LTE subscription or do have one, but were incorrectly provisioned in the system – depriving the user of LTE services for which he/she is paying and very possibly leading to an unhappy customer.
Better yet, avoid traffic jams by staying up to date on traffic trends and planning in advance the summer “Black Saturdays” high peak roaming traffic in Europe and ensure service continuity.
During the summer, iBasis experienced 8 to 10 fold increase in the number of unique roamers and of LTE signaling traffic compared to last year especially we observed tremendous spikes in roaming traffic during the summer “Black Saturdays” – the weekends marking the highest travel periods in Europe.
If you are concerned about VoLTE Roaming models, IMS interoperability, interconnectivity between different roaming models, end-user quality of experience, we encourage you to attend iBasis CTO Ajay Joseph’s session on “VoLTE Roaming Challenges” on Tuesday September 29th at 15.20 at the LTE Voice Summit in London.
Ajay will discuss the best way to approach VoLTE Roaming to achieve both high quality and fast time-to-market, including results of recent VoLTE trials and innovative solutions to help you achieve the benefits of taking VoLTE global.
Hot Telecom recently interviewed Willem Offerhaus, iBasis CEO to learn how iBasis is innovating as the wholesale voice market evolves to support voice in the new IP world. In the interview Willem explains how iBasis is continuing to be a leading international voice provider and innovator — among the first to launch IPX, LTE roaming, and more recently, the first to conduct successful international VoLTE roaming trials.
