Tata Communications extends managed services offering to support 4G migration


Tata Communications, a leading provider of A New World of Communications, today announces the expansion of its managed services for mobile network operators (MNOs) looking to grow their mobile broadband offering as 4G continues to gather pace globally. 

Tata Communications is supporting MNOs around the globe with one of the industry’s widest reaching service offerings for mobile broadband enablement. Building on its extensive 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.

With the accelerated growth in mobile data spurred by greater smartphone proliferation, MNOs are looking for ways to generate increased revenue, reduce customer churn and ensure service continuity as they migrate to 4G. Tata Communications’ managed services simplify the interconnection of MNO communities, ensuring smoother end-to-end service delivery and management across networks, resulting in quality and efficiency gains. Tata Communications’ interworking across the mobile ecosystem ensures faster time to market for new services and lower total cost of ownership for MNOs.

“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.
