Syniverse, China Telecom Global Plan Connectivity Services to Africa for Mobile Operators

China Telecom Global (CTG), a wholly owned subsidiary of China Telecom Corporation Limited, and Syniverse, the world´s most connected company, reaffirmed their strategic partnership and pre-launched a new suite of connectivity solutions to provide services for mobile operators in Africa for quickly and cost-effectively migrating to 4G and other advanced voice, data, and video services, the companies said.

The solutions allow customers of African mobile operators to move to the next generation of mobile Internet services like 4G, Rich Communication Services (RCS), and the Internet of things (IoT).

A crucial part of implementing 4G in Africa involves the deployment of an IP packet eXchange (IPX) network, the backbone that makes 4G roaming possible, and Diameter, the industry-standard signaling protocol for messages from mobile devices. The joint IPX network decreases network complexity and ensures high-quality, end-to-end mobile services through a secure connection to more than 750 operators in over 150 countries.

In parallel, Syniverse Diameter Signaling Service provides a powerful tool for managing, routing, and mediating signaling traffic across mobile networks that enables 4G data to be passed between operators and devices securely. Leveraging this reach and capacity, CTG will be able to customize a cost-efficient connectivity solution for each operator while still providing the same high performance and security.

Syniverse pioneers innovations that take business further, with a global network reaches billions of people and devices.

China Telecom Global Limited, established in 2012 and headquartered in Hong Kong, connects the Asia Pacific region and the world by leveraging on its abundant resources in mainland China.
