Tango Telecom provides operators with comprehensive solution to pending EU Roaming Regulation

Tango Telecom www.tangotelecom.com , the leading provider of Policy and Charging Control & Next Generation Messaging solutions, announced today that its Local Breakout solution will comprehensively and cost-effectively enable operators to comply with the EU Roaming Regulation due to come into effect in July 2014.

The new regulation will allow intra-European Union roamers to purchase their roaming service from a different provider to their home network service. Tango Telecom’s Local Breakout solution (LBO), which is based on its Policy Control platform, ensures that operators will be able to attract and retain valuable roamers to their networks by offering international data roaming at local data access rates.

Dr. Colm Ward, CEO Tango Telecom, comments: “We know that currently over 60% of smartphone and tablet roamers do not turn on mobile data access when roaming and that the 40% of roamers who do access data use significantly less than at home. This means that the impending EU regulation is an opportunity for operators to benefit from the huge untapped revenue potential of the data roamer. Rather than wait until 2014, operators should look to seize advantage now by being first to market. There is a very compelling business case.”

Tango Telecom’s Local Breakout solution is part of its market leading Policy Control suite and provides a complete solution on a single platform. The solution requires minimal changes to the existing network ensuring low implementation costs and rapid deployment timeframes for operators.
