Qatar Telecom (Ooredoo) has launched a voice-over-IPX+ platform, gaining access to international network operator Tata Communications’ IPX+ connected mobile destinations, as part of a plan to consolidate its entire network to an IP-based backbone, supporting a suite of services such as signalling, data roaming (GRX and IPX) and LTE roaming. Allan Chan, president of Global Carrier Services, Tata Communications, said: ‘We are seeing a huge demand for our IPX+ connectivity platform from mobile network operators looking to capitalise on the mobile data explosion’, adding that more than 140 operators in 40 countries were adopting its IPX+ services.
