Syniverse Provides 5G Roaming and Immediate Global Coverage with Open Connectivity Complete

New roaming hub enables operators to quickly increase roaming footprint
while bridging to 5G

TAMPA, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”” target=”_blank”gt;#5Glt;/agt;–Syniverse
is taking another step in the 5G revolution with the launch of a roaming
hub that delivers full 5G operability and quick access to worldwide
coverage. Syniverse Open Connectivity Complete provides a hub with
multilateral roaming agreements for data, messaging, and voice services
that allow mobile operators to seamlessly bridge to the world of 5G and
offer their customers the highest-quality user experience.

The hub benefits operators by providing a “plug and play” roaming
business that allows them to reduce time to market for roaming services,
more quickly expand into new markets, and access the newest generation
of services, such as 5G, NarrowBand Internet of Things (NB-IoT), and
Long Term Evolution for Machines (LTE-M). With just one agreement and
one connection, operators are able to join multiple roaming networks in
the hub and gain coverage around the world.

”Mobile users not only want the widest roaming coverage possible, they
want the same quality of experience at all times, and today that means
4G and, soon, 5G,” said John Wick, Senior Vice President and General
Manager, Service Provider Group, Syniverse. “Our Open Connectivity
Complete hub will allow operators to meet this demand by delivering 5G
operability and the highest level of roaming service to their customers
while avoiding the significant amount of testing required for the
establishment of bilateral roaming agreements. The result is quicker
time-to-market with reduced cost and complexity.”

In addition to 5G access, simplified roaming connectivity, and worldwide
coverage, Open Connectivity Complete offers several other benefits. With
a number of operators a part of the hub, the network connections and
regional coverage areas continue to grow, allowing any new members to
connect immediately to new operators worldwide as well as migrate any
existing bilateral roaming partner relationships. Open Connectivity
Complete also provides a single financial clearing and settlement pool
with a web interface that allows operators to monitor their financial
settlement, invoicing, and debt process in real time. Moreover, because
Syniverse acts as a neutral party to both roaming access seekers and
providers, the potential of conflicts is reduced and the time needed for
negotiation and implementation planning is minimized.

“Individual roaming relationships have become the industry standard, but
establishing these relationships brings incremental cost, more
complexity, and inconsistent new-technology access for many operators,”
said Wick. “With just one agreement and one connection to the Syniverse
hub through Open Connectivity Complete, operators can gain a single
point of access to roaming coverage around the world, and a single point
of access to the latest in 5G connectivity, including NB-IoT and LTE-M.”

Operators can join the Syniverse Open Connectivity Complete hub and find
out more on other Syniverse 5G services at MWC Barcelona at the Syniverse
, in Fira Barcelona Gran Via at Stand 2G11 in Hall 2. Syniverse
will host an Innovation Theater there featuring a series of seminars and
product demonstrations on new technologies, including 5G, Rich
Communication Services (RCS), and the internet of things.
