Tango Telecom: 20% of EU Operators on target to launch Local Breakout Roaming Services by Summer 2014

Early indications are that at least 20% of the European Union’s 100 plus operators will go live with Local Breakout Solutions for Inbound Data Roaming Capture by August 2014, according to policy and charging control market leader, Tango Telecom. Local Breakout for Inbound Data Roaming Services is permissable under the EU Roaming III regulation and enables operators to proactively attract inbound roamers to their networks. Currently, over 90% of roamers change the way they use their mobile devices to access data services due to concerns about cost transparency and control. The revenue potential for mobile operators is lost to lower quality alternative non-mobile providers such as WiFi in the visited country. Recent research has indicated that travellers spend more than €12 billion a year on alternatives to mobile data roaming including €6 billion on Hotel WiFi.

Nigel Portley, Product Strategist, Tango Telecom, explains: “The current EU legislation opens up the previously unaddressable market of the inbound roamer for EU operators. With trials and proof of concepts well underway throughout the EU28, we estimate that 20% of EU operators will have launched local breakout solutions by the end of Summer 2014. The business case speaks for itself with well over 300 million Europeans travelling each year to destinations within the continent. We know that 94% limit their mobile data usage and nearly half don’t use it at all when travelling within the EU according to a recent Eurobarometer survey. By turning these reluctant and dormant roamers into active ones, first to market EU operators have a real opportunity to capture the lionshare of this lucrative inbound roaming market.”

Tango Telecom’s Cloud LBO provides mobile operators with the ideal solution, offering a turnkey all inclusive service designed to plug into any network without the need for complex integration. The platform has been specifically developed and designed for virtualisation and cloud deployment and is compatible with operators’ LTE, NFV and SDN strategies. Tango Telecom’s Cloud LBO solution negates the need to justify significant resource and financial investment while offering the greatest potential ROI: providing a secure low-cost, low-risk solution to enable EU operators to seize inbound roaming revenues.

As pervasive as cloud technology is -- and as persuasive as the arguments are for using it -- the cloud has its limits.
