Orange launches 4G roaming service

Orange’s wholesale division has launched a new service that will allow mobile operators to provide customers with 4G roaming service.

Orange’s “LTE Signalling” offer enables operators to provide end-users with significantly improved service of 4G networks while roaming outside their home country. Today Orange is capable of offering connectivity with most LTE networks across Europe, Americas and Asia.

With  almost 20 years of experience and offering one of the largest available  footprints, Orange provides operators with complete solutions that  support all roaming technologies, including signalling, data and value  added services.

LTE Signalling is one of the a la carte services  available through Orange’s Multiservice IP eXchange solution which  provides a high-level of security and quality of service. Orange’s IPX  network offers a large footprint that comprises 30 points of presence (PoPs) worldwide. It guarantees a packet-loss ratio of less than 0.05 percent and jitter inferior to 5 ms.

LTE Signalling, based on the “Diameter”  signalling protocol, is built on dedicated platforms integrated in  Orange’s cutting-edge IPX network and provides additional security,  interoperability and enhanced routing functions.

“Orange has developed LTE Signalling for operators to allow them to build a high-quality 4G roaming service that is fully compliant with GSMA guidelines. The Group’s Open Connectivity policy and  extensive peering agreements allow us to provide wholesale clients with  the opportunity to benefit from a large coverage. LTE Signalling is a  must-have service that offers both differentiation and the ability to  generate additional revenues in an increasingly evolutive market,” said Alexandre Pebereau, EVP International Carriers, Orange.

The LTE ecosystem is growing fast and the number of LTE subscribers worldwide is forecast to exceed 1 billion by 2017.  These customers will form the core of the high-end segment and will be  characterized by high expectations in terms of services offering very  high speed and low latency, wherever they are and across a wide variety  of devices.
