India's BSNL has signed a multiyear agreement with Syniverse to expand its global data roaming capability through the Syniverse GRX Network Solution, INPack. With the agreement, BSNL's customers will have seamless access to their data network when they roam nationally and internationally, regardless of their operators’ roaming partner networks. In addition to providing the reach and capabilities their subscribers demand, operators gain the benefit of quicker implementation of roaming services and reduced cost and time to market, said Syniverse.
The agreement expands on a 10-year-plus relationship between BSNL and Syniverse that includes the use of a number of Syniverse services critical to making roaming work. BSNL currently integrates Syniverse’s Data Clearing House, Financial Clearing, Near Real-Time Roaming Data Exchange, Global Number Portability and Messaging services.
