BICS Enables First Intercontinental LTE Data Roaming

BICS, a provider of wholesale carrier services, announced that its IPX platform enabled Swisscom and South Korean operators to perform the first intercontinental LTE roaming connection over IPX, between Europe and Asia.

In early July the roaming facility will be extended to customers in Canada and Hong Kong.

“We have not only taken the lead in expanding 4G/LTE in Switzerland, now we are also at the forefront internationally, leveraging on the best-in-class BICS IPX platform for LTE roaming,” says Marc Furrer, Head of International Roaming at Swisscom.

The fast expansion of LTE services is challenging for operators as it requires a brand new roll-out of technical interconnections and commercial agreements between all mobile networks to make it work, supported by a completely new all-IP international signalling infrastructure.
