SWEDEN: TeliaSonera International Carrier (TSIC) announced the launch of TeliaSonera IPX. Based on TSIC’s global fiber backbone with 200 Points of Presence (PoPs) worldwide, this is one of the largest IPX networks launched to date.
Available to both TeliaSonera group and external operators, at launch it carries TSIC’s roaming and signaling portfolio and VoIPX. This will be supplemented with LTE signaling services later in 2013 and a comprehensive suite of additional IPX services to follow.
TSIC's optical network is 100G-enabled throughout North America and Europe, and includes key markets in Eastern Europe. As a result, IPX now reaches new markets. It also offers all operators a new direct, high performance option to guarantee their end-user experience. This will help meet the growing end-customer demand to be able to do anything on their mobile devices from anywhere they want - the trend towards anywhereization.
As soon as end-customers experience higher quality, they demand it. And they won’t pay for anything less. The constant increase of network speeds, particularly over the past 10 years, has created a generation of end-users who expect bandwidth and mobility to just keep going up. TeliaSonera IPX has been developed to meet the demands of this generation.
Because TSIC owns its own network from end to end, it can monitor and manage IPX traffic from end-to-end. This guarantees quality of service from the optical layer up. It also provides the bandwidth needed for an elastic network that can scale to meet traffic peaks and exploding bandwidth demands.
