iBasis, a KPN company, and International Carrier Sales & Solutions
(ICSS), the international wholesale arm of Deutsche Telekom, today
announced an LTE Roaming peering agreement that will benefit mobile
network operator (MNO) customers of both companies by enabling a
consistent, high quality LTE roaming experience for their subscribers.

components, including Signaling/S6a, Data/S8 and VoLTE, to deliver a
complete LTE Roaming solution.

leading providers like Deutsche Telekom, which helps our mobile operator
customers offer a more complete global roaming experience for their LTE
subscribers,” said Willem Offerhaus, iBasis CEO. “We’re very pleased to
partner with Deutsche Telekom ICSS to continue to fulfill the promise of

If there is anything we have learned by now, is that every business paves their own unique path for releasing software- every pipeline, implementation and practices are a bit different, and DevOps comes in all shapes and sizes. Software delivery practices are often comprised of set of several complementing (or even competing) methodologies – such as leveraging Agile, DevOps and even a mix of ITIL, to create the combination that’s most suitable for your organization and that maximize your busines...

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene.
In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited.

See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure. Storage performance in a virtualized environment is not just about IOPS, it is about how well that potential performance is guaranteed to individual VMs for these apps as the number of VMs keep going up real time.
