Tata Communications expands managed services for mobile network operators
Feb 15, 2013 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
Tata Communications Limited, a provider of wholesale international voice services, has announced the expansion of its managed services for mobile network operators, or MNOs.
Building on its portfolio of mobile services, including IPX+ connectivity, voice, messaging, and signalling, the company has introduced two new solutions - the Virtual Private Roaming Hub which consolidates roaming operations and the LTE Roaming Service to streamline roaming for 4G networks. Tata Communications is also launching the Managed SMS Firewall to protect MNOs and consumers against mobile spam, the company said.
"Mobile broadband presents unique opportunities for mobile operators to rethink their business and service delivery models in order to address the challenges of data growth and fierce competition", says Tim Sherwood, vice president, Mobile Segment Strategy, Tata Communications.
"What we bring to the market is a comprehensive, yet modular, managed services framework which efficiently empowers mobile operators to generate revenue from new services, capabilities and business models many of which are supporting evolving customer demands."
Helping to manage roaming arrangements for MNOs so they can offer best value and achieve optimal returns, Tata Communications is introducing the Virtual Private Roaming Hub and LTE Roaming Service. The Virtual Private Roaming Hub delivers increased efficiencies by consolidating roaming operations across a community of MNOs, creating economies of scale, the company added.
Tata Communications' LTE Roaming Service ensures service continuity while simplifying LTE roaming interconnection across MNOs.
Tata Communications also introduces the Managed SMS Firewall which protects MNO networks against fraud and spam generated by international SMS. With always-on SMS threat monitoring and protection, based on MNO-set policies for spam traps and content filtering, Managed SMS Firewall detects, alarms, and blocks threats to protect mobile networks and subscribers.
Tata Communications' managed solutions are delivered through an IPX+ converged interconnect platform across mobile networks to manage delivery of multiple services over IP, including voice, video, messaging, roaming and signaling, the company concluded.
