BARCELONA, Spain, Feb. 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- GSMA MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS -- Sybase 365, a subsidiary of Sybase, Inc. the global leader in mobile messaging and mobile commerce services, today announced that it has extended Sybase® IPX 365™ — the industry leading suite of IP services and connectivity options for mobile operators, to include support for LTE* roaming, a critical component to the success of next generation LTE networks.
The transition to LTE promises to fundamentally change the mobile ecosystem and will enable new capabilities well beyond traditional voice and data services. ABI Research estimates that LTE equipment spending will grow by 120 percent in 2011 to reach almost US $1 billion. This increase is supported by more than 185 deployments and trials around the world.
As mobile operators invest in LTE technology, they face implementation challenges both commercially and technically when integrating LTE into their existing core infrastructure, including roaming. Sybase addresses such challenges by providing high bandwidth through its IPX network and superior quality LTE roaming. The advanced engineering of Sybase IPX 365 is built on a global MPLS platform with multiple Gbps (gigabits per second) capacity and unrivaled operator grade network performance, ensuring mobile operators can seamlessly roll out roaming between their LTE networks.
"LTE's high-bandwidth and low latency significantly improves the user experience for bandwidth-hungry smartphone applications, while its all-IP architecture, spectral efficiency, and bandwidth flexibility promises to greatly improve overall network profitability," said Gregory Dunn, Vice President, Product Management, Sybase. "By extending our roaming services to support LTE rollout, Sybase continues to set the bar by delivering superior network performance and global reach, operational excellence, security, and community value for our operator customers."
Sybase IPX 365 is an industry leading comprehensive suite of IP services and connectivity options that provide global data roaming (GRX), voice transport (both on-net and off-net), roaming signaling, BlackBerry® connectivity, MMS, and SMS — offering mobile operators the advantage of obtaining all essential services through one connection.
