“The surge in data demand driven by smart devices has transformed the mobile world, and made connectivity more crucial than ever before for users who leave home,” said R.K. Mittal Director (CM), BSNL.

The agreement expands on a 10-year-plus relationship between BSNL and Syniverse that includes the use of a number of Syniverse services critical to making roaming work.

“Through one agreement and one connection, the Syniverse GRX Network Solution enables us to provide our customers with comprehensive data roaming coverage around the world while significantly streamlining our technical implementation and infrastructure cost,” Mittal added.

BSNL currently integrates Syniverse’s Data Clearing House, Financial Clearing, Near Real-Time Roaming Data Exchange, Global Number Portability and Messaging services.

“By offering a single-solution approach to roaming, we enable our customers to migrate easily and cost-efficiently. We look forward to expanding BSNL’s reach and ability to deliver seamless data roaming to its customers while preparing the operator for advanced IP-based multimedia service features, such as voice and video over LTE,” said Sanjay Kasturia, Vice President and Managing Director, Sales, India, Syniverse.
