|By Business Wire
|July 14, 2014 02:00 AM EDT
iBasis, a KPN company, and Telekom Austria Group, 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. The new agreement
leverages the companies’ existing GRX peering agreement, as well as each
company’s IP eXchange (IPX).
A rapidly growing number of interconnected operators are leveraging the
global IPX ecosystem to add value for their subscribers by utilizing
IPX-enabled components, including Signaling/S6a and S9 (Diameter),
Data/S8 and VoLTE, to deliver a complete LTE Roaming solution.
“We are eager to accelerate the global adoption of LTE roaming, which
benefits the entire mobile communications community from subscribers to
operators to solution providers and application developers,” said Willem
Offerhaus, iBasis CEO. “Peering with qualified partners that share that
vision, like Telekom Austria Group, enables us to expand our global LTE
Roaming footprint and offer additional destinations quickly and
“Mobile customers are increasingly expecting high quality access to
their services whether they are at home or travelling,” states Stefan
Amon, Director Wholesale of Telekom Austria Group. “Through partnerships
with proven providers we are expanding our reach and making the global
LTE Roaming experience a reality. Telekom Austria Group reports a
customer base of approximately 23 million retail customers who will
benefit enormously from these enhanced services.”
The iBasis LTE Signaling eXchange
The iBasis LTE Signaling eXchange service provides a single point of
access to iBasis’ live 4G (LTE) signaling network with Diameter Routing
Agents in key locations around the world. Through direct connections to
many mobile operators’ LTE networks and through peerings with other
leading providers, the iBasis global LTE Roaming footprint reaches more
than 100 LTE networks. iBasis also offers a trial environment for
testing LTE roaming scenarios and VoLTE.
Telekom Austria Group’s LTE Signaling Service
As a group operator with wholesale and retail business and a strong
history in signaling and transport, the Telekom Austria Group has
in-depth knowledge about the needs of mobile operators. A1, the Austrian
subsidiary of the Telekom Austria Group, was the first Austrian operator
to provide 4G/LTE abroad. With its LTE Signaling Services, the group
manages the transfer of Diameter messages over its carrier grade IP
eXchange infrastructure. Based on the expertise from having access to
both retail and wholesale customers, the solution was designed for the
needs of operators to establish and maintain roaming destinations in a
fast and cost-efficient way. Customers benefit from end-to-end quality
of service, backed by cascading SLA.

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud.

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud. He showed how the immutable patterns helps developers do away with most of the complexity of config as code-enabling scenarios such as rollback, zero downtime upgrades with far greater simplicity. He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
