The platform provides a one-connection-to-multiple-services approach, which aims to lower costs and boost operational efficiencies by reducing the number of network connections a mobile service provider must manage. According to a joint press release, the agreement provides a seamless end-to-end environment for Softbank Mobile to deliver interoperable Long Term Evolution (LTE) and LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) services, and it represents Syniverse’s first IPX customer in the country.
