Deutsche Telekom upgrades to industry-leading IPX connections both for its in-house customer Telekom Deutschland and on the AMS-IX hub, enabling fast data exchange between mobile operators worldwide

When abroad, today’s mobile subscribers expect high-speed 3G or LTE data
roaming services with best user experience. As an expert provider of IPX
roaming capabilities, Deutsche
Carrier Sales & Solutions (ICSS) unit ensures fast, secure IP
exchange, especially in times of exponentially rising data volumes. It
also provides high-speed, high-quality solutions for mobile operators
around the world. In line with this strategy, ICSS has now not
only significantly increased Telekom
Deutschland’s Ethernet Link to its own IPX platform, but has also
upgraded its IPX interconnection capacity at AMS-IX, a central IP
peering hub in Amsterdam.
ICSS in-house customer Telekom Deutschland is one of the first mobile
operators to benefit from ICSS’s decision to upgrade its IPX
connections. As an indispensable partner for Deutsche Telekom Group
entities, ICSS prepared Telekom Deutschland – the biggest mobile
operator in Germany – for the summer holiday roaming peaks and the
capacity demands arising from the ongoing LTE roaming rollout by
increasing the company’s Ethernet link to 4 x 10 Gigabit via its own IPX
platform. As a result, Telekom Deutschland can continue providing its
roaming subscribers with seamless data services around the globe,
whereas ICSS is now one of very few wholesalers to offer such a
significant volume to mobile operators.
“We have seen tremendous growth in the use of our services from both
current and new customers. When abroad, they want the same high-speed,
high-quality connection they have at home. Our goal is to satisfy their
data roaming expectations, today and in the future,” says Dirk Poppe,
Vice President Mobile Wholesale Roaming, Telekom Deutschland GmbH.
ICSS provides attractive, tailored services to mobile operators around
the world, not only within the Deutsche Telekom Group. The recent
upgrade of the unit’s IPX connection at the central IP peering hub
“AMS-IX” in Amsterdam to 2 x 10 Gigabit Ethernet once again proves
ICSS’s commitment to enabling its customers to benefit from its ability
to successfully handle the rapid, continuous increase in mobile data
“Our focus is to provide our mobile operator partners with the seamless
connectivity they need to ensure superior experience to their
subscribers. The decision to upgrade our IPX connectivity at this
central IP peering hub is a further module in our strategy to offer
industry-leading IPX capacity for the benefit of our customers. They
profit from extended global reach and end-to-end quality guarantee in
times of ever-growing data volumes,” explains Holger Magnussen, Senior
Vice President International Carrier Sales & Solutions.
Job Witteman, Chief Executive Officer (CEO), AMS-IX, comments, “We are
happy to support ICSS with this capacity upgrade at our inter-IPX
peering platform. ICSS is thus well prepared to deal with the immense
growth in LTE data volumes. This shows ICSS’s dedication to the future
needs of its mobile operator partners and their subscribers – to provide
them with the full advantages of the latest, next-generation
applications for the best in user experience.”
