7 Jun 2013

India’s Tata Communications and Telecom Italia Sparkle have announced the implementation of what they describe as ‘the world’s first Long Term Evolution (LTE) roaming peering between two IPX providers’. Genius Wong, senior vice president of Global Network Services at Tata Communications, commented: ‘We expect the demand for 4G services to explode within the next two years. To ensure that mobile operators are able to cope with this trend, it is crucial that the interconnection and interworking complexities of global LTE roaming are eliminated’.
