Through this partnership, the customers of Syniverse and Tata Communications will gain improved monitoring, redundancy, reporting and quality of service
Syniverse and Tata Communications announced that they are partnering to develop the first fully-managed, end-to-end global IPX (IP Exchange) network interconnection. Through this, they will be able to provide operators better customer service, visibility and control of the data that is flowing across their interconnected networks.
Through this association, both companies will leverage their network expertise and platforms that support internet of things (IoT) and 5G, to build a comprehensive and reliable foundation for global mobility services.
In addition, the partnership will enable Syniverse and Tata Communications to leverage IPX networks of each other to extend the collective reach of directly connected mobile service providers worldwide. This means that the customers of both companies will be able to access the greatest number of IPX connections in the industry.
Through this partnership, the customers of the two companies will gain improved monitoring, redundancy, reporting and quality of service. The policy solutions will provide complete visibility and traffic management on each network, along with transparent service level pacts.
Speaking about the development, Dean Douglas, CEO and President, Syniverse, said, “Syniverse is the world’s most connected company and the partnership will help further both our and Tata Communications’ abilities to provide improved service assurance between our respective customers that goes beyond ‘best effort’ connectivity. Our customers gain the added value of improved performance, quality and route diversity, while also gaining access to our underlying capabilities that are supporting 5G and IoT.”
“Our partnership essentially offers the market a single way to access direct reach offered by two distinct and georedundant IPX networks. It allows our customers to work with one company while gaining the benefits of each company’s strengths,” he added.
Anthony Bartolo, Chief Product Officer, Tata Communications, said, “By joining forces with Syniverse, we’re one step closer to our goal of creating an environment where everything and everyone can become seamlessly connected, anywhere in the world.
Drive digital transformation
“As our customers leverage next-generation IoT and mobility services to drive their digital transformation, they need a solid foundation to ensure that they are able to capture, move and manage information seamlessly and securely worldwide. The powerful combination of Tata Communications’ and Syniverse’s capabilities and global reach will enable them to do just that,” he said.
With this agreement, the customers of the two companies will be able to use the MOVE mobility and IoT platform of Tata Communications, which currently connects 4 out of 5 mobile subscribers and carries nearly 30 per cent of the Internet routes in the world. The customers will also benefit from the IPX network service to improve their mobile devices performance, as well as reducing the roaming cost.
