Starhome Mach, the mobile inter-carrier network and clearing services provider, has announced the availability of its complete LTE Roaming Services Portfolio at the LTE World Summit in Amsterdam.
The portfolio includes everything operators require to quickly implement and deploy LTE roaming as well as products for efficiency, management, and revenue enhancement, the company said.
Operators are just beginning to enable LTE roaming but the process can be slow and costly if new LTE roaming agreements are needed. Requirements such as fall back to 3G for voice calls significantly increase technical complexity and reduce quality of service.
Starhome Mach’s LTE portfolio is designed to accelerate connections between networks, simplify the technology mix, ensure LTE roaming is readily available and maintain the quality of the user experience.
“Many operators are now completing domestic implementation and launch of LTE. Subscribers will expect their LTE service to continue when roaming, with its higher speeds and seamless quality of service,” says Guy Reiffer, VP marketing and partnerships at Starhome Mach.
“Operators will also need roaming value-added services that support LTE. We have upgraded our full suite of roaming products to ensure it is fully ready.”
Starhome Mach’s LTE roaming portfolio currently comprises four main aspects. The LTE Accelerator enables seamless 4G roaming while leveraging existing 3G roaming agreements, opening networks to the entire LTE world.
The LTE steering of roaming solution guarantees QoS and a better user experience by minimising service disruptions between LTE and GSM, both in visited networks and at international borders where accidental roaming may occur.
LTE campaign management maximises data usage, revenues, and customer satisfaction with personalized marketing campaigns to boost awareness of LTE capabilities, rates, and packages. The entire portfolio is integrated with business analytics and management into a synergetic, single view of the entire roaming department.
“Operators have been gearing up to offer 4G for years,” concluded Reiffer. “Now that it’s a reality, they need to make sure they can seamlessly and profitably provide all LTE benefits everywhere.”
