iBasis (News - Alert) is providing international 4G/LTE roaming for mobile users in Peru. The company has signed an agreement with Claro Peru to use its Hosted Diameter Routing Agent (DRA) solution and LTE (News - Alert) Signaling eXchange (LSX).
This agreement will allow worldwide subscribers to enjoy 4G LTE quality and speed while they travel to Peru. In addition, subscribers travelling to Peru will benefit from Claro (News - Alert) Peru's 4G/LTE coverage and access the iBasis global LTE footprint, which includes over 100 LTE networks worldwide.
iBasis LTE Roaming is already in use in the region as two companies, Claro Brazil and Telcel (News - Alert) Mexico, deployed the solution earlier this year.
"Our hosted DRA solution enables mobile operators to offer 4G/LTE roaming quickly and with significantly lower up-front investment in equipment and less strain on their operational resources," said Willem Offerhaus, CEO of iBasis. "As demand for 4G/LTE continues to grow, we are able to be very responsive to operators' needs and help them meet that demand very efficiently."
Operators can also leverage the hosted DRA solution from iBasis to easily implement 4G/LTE roaming without having to make heavy capital investments.
iBasis is an international voice carrier and provider of value-added services for mobile operators. The company was in news last month for signing an LTE Roaming peering agreement with Telekom Austria (News - Alert).
