The iBasis LSX provides a comprehensive solution to the complexities of international roaming across 3G and 4G (LTE) networks. The solution also leverages a complete IPX platform to enable operators to consolidate voice and data services over a single, guaranteed-quality interconnect and make the transition to all-IP networks.

“As LTE adoption spreads rapidly around the world, subscribers accustomed to the higher performance of LTE will demand consistent quality and access to their apps and data when they are roaming internationally. So, the challenges of international LTE Roaming are becoming increasingly important,” said Willem Offerhaus, CEO of iBasis. “We are the first to offer mobile operators a comprehensive and efficient LTE Roaming solution for voice and data that provides immediate global footprint and solves technical challenges to ensure a consistent experience for their LTE customers. We are very pleased to receive this recognition from Capacity and the Global Carriers Awards’ independent judges.”
