Syniverse today announced that it will add points of presence (POPs) for its IPX network in Frankfurt Germany and Marseille France in the first quarter of 2013. The new locations add to Syniverse's global IPX footprint which will include 16 POPs across North America Asia Pacific and Europe.
Syniverse Network Senior Vice President John Wick said. "Existing POPs in London and Amsterdam have helped many of our European customers access the network, and we expect the new connection points to extend these benefits to even more mobile service providers globally."
The Syniverse IPX Network Solution provides a connection to Syniverse via a global all-IP network that currently serves nearly 100 mobile service providers worldwide. Syniverse's IPX also offers one-stop access to the company's full suite of mobile solutions, facilitating a "one connection, multiple services" approach that reduces costs and boosts operational efficiencies by reducing the number of network connections a mobile service provider must manage.
Syniverse said that its solution in particular has supported mobile service providers through LTE roaming trials, and its IPX network is now being used to facilitate the first commercial LTE roaming into North America.
"In addition to the efficiency and quality benefits, our customers know IPX is the backbone for the next generation of roaming services that their end users are increasingly demanding," Wick added.
