Syniverse and China Telecom Global(CTG) have formed a strategic partnership to provide mobile operators in the Middle East and Africa to move to the next generation of mobile internet services like 4G, Rich Communication Services (RCS), and the Internet of Things (IoT).
A crucial part of implementing 4G in developing markets, such as in the Middle East and Africa, involves the deployment of an IPX network, the network backbone that makes 4G roaming possible, and Diameter, the industry-standard signaling protocol for messages from mobile devices.
Syniverse claims that its IPX Network decreases network complexity and ensures high-quality, end-to-end mobile services through a secure connection to more than 750 operators in over 150 countries. In parallel, the Syniverse Diameter Signaling Service provides a powerful tool for managing, simplifying, and translating data across networks, that enables 4G data to be passed between operators and devices securely. Leveraging this reach and capacity, CTG will be able to customise a cost-efficient connectivity solution for each operator while still providing the same high performance and security.
