HENDERSON, NV -- (Marketwire) -- 02/21/13 -- Ahead of the annual Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, Telecom North America launches the multi-IMSI roaming hub, a revolutionary roaming services trading platform which allows MNOs (Mobile Network Operators) and MVNOs (Mobile Virtual Network Operators) around the world to lower costs and increase revenues by selling and buying roaming services to and from one another.
The platform allows established MNOs to generate incremental income by reselling their outbound international roaming agreements to other Members of the hub, without any CAPEX expenses, while full MVNOs can generate additional income by reselling service in their home countries to other Members on the hub.
Members can also increase their roaming footprint, or reduce their outbound roaming costs by accessing lower rates for outbound roaming in dozens of countries, which allows them to provide more attractive roaming packages to their subscribers in order to compete more effectively against other operators and virtual operators in their home markets.
"Attractive roaming offers are often key to gaining and retaining the lucrative VIP or business customer segment which roams heavily and generates the highest ARPUs," says Jean Gottschalk, President of Telecom North America. "MNOs and MVNOs from North America, Europe and the Middle East have already been trading services on the hub during our pre-launch phase, proving that there is an increasing need from the industry to optimize outbound roaming costs for the benefit of consumers."
The multi-IMSI roaming hub uses advanced technology such as multi-IMSI capable SIM cards, dynamic over-the-air provisioning of IMSIs, optimal CAMEL routing and multi-MSISDN capabilities, among others.
The service is also available to CDMA operators thanks to interstandard interworking capabilities built into the hub.
