Syniverse to assist BTC for LTE roaming trials

Syniverse announced its agreement with Bahamas Telecommunications Company (BTC) for LTE roaming trials.

Geoff Houston, CEO, BTC, said: “Our work with Syniverse is an important step to ensure we deliver on customer expectations, enabling a seamless, trouble-free experience for our customers as they roam from one LTE network to another.”

Achieving LTE roaming is a complex challenge that requires testing to ensure the quality of roaming processes, such as diameter signaling, clearing and settlement, and customer-experience protection between one LTE network and another, said Syniverse.

Syniverse has already done a series of LTE roaming trials and deployments around the globe, including in North America where the company recently enabled the successful launch of international LTE roaming between two Tier 1 providers in the United States and Canada.

In December 2013, Syniverse announced a multi-year deal with Puerto Rican mobile services provider Open Mobile to renew existing services and add Syniverse’s IPX Network Solution and Diameter Signaling Service.

In 2013, Syniverse opened new customer support center in Costa Rica and announced it was helping 10 Telefonica operations in Latin America rapidly grow their global roaming footprints and increase traffic with Syniverse’s Managed Services.
