Sponsored by Businesswire

Network Services
(TNS) has reached a major milestone with the
Competitive Carriers Association (CCA) LTE Roaming Hub. The Hub has
added key international destinations and now satisfies over 85% of the
international roaming requirements of the Hub’s member operators.

TNS’ roaming
portfolio seamlessly enables operators to expand their domestic and
international footprint while maximizing network effectiveness with a
suite of visibility and intelligence tools. TNS has recently expanded
the Hub to the top 10 international destinations including Mexico,
Canada, Dominican Republic, Italy, France, Germany, Spain, and the UK.

Paul Florack, Vice President of Product Management at TNS,
said, “We are delighted to welcome a number of new members to our Hub,
which not only widens our coverage significantly but also provides
additional inbound roaming revenue opportunities for new members. The
CCA LTE Roaming Hub is designed to be extremely cost-effective and
efficient, giving access to multiple operators through a single supplier.

“As subscribers expect
quality coverage as the norm, operators are under growing
pressure to upgrade their technological capabilities. Through the CCA
LTE Roaming
Hub, TNS provides roaming to and from 4G networks, including VoLTE
roaming, and circuit-switched fall back to Inter-Standard Roaming on 3G
voice and SMS. TNS Hub members have a competitive advantage by offering
LTE roaming to their subscribers, while simplifying their roaming

Steven K. Berry, President & CEO of CCA, said, “We are extremely pleased
to be celebrating the expanding coverage of CCA’s LTE Roaming Hub. TNS
and CCA are dedicated to continuing this vital investment in our Hub to
ensure it maintains its market leading position and realizes its full
potential. Together, these partnerships will help expand and deploy
service to more consumers across vast areas.”
