iBasis, a KPN company, today announced that Claro Peru, a leading mobile
operator in Peru and subsidiary of America Movil, is utilizing iBasis'
Hosted Diameter Routing Agent (DRA) solution and the iBasis
LTE Signaling eXchange (LSX) to provide international 4G/LTE Roaming
for mobile users in Peru. The service enables subscribers from around
the world to enjoy 4G LTE quality and speed while traveling to Peru and
under Claro Peru's 4G/LTE coverage. It also provides Claro Peru with
access to the iBasis global LTE footprint, which includes more than 100
LTE networks worldwide.
Claro Peru is the third America Movil operator in the region to
implement the iBasis LTE Roaming solution. Claro Brazil and Telcel
Mexico announced their participation in the iBasis LSX in May and June,
respectively. The hosted DRA solution from iBasis enables operators to
quickly implement 4G/LTE Roaming without the capital investment and
resource requirement of deploying DRAs in their own network. With DRAs
distributed strategically around the world, iBasis offers a fast and
convenient way for operators to begin offering LTE roaming
"Our hosted DRA solution enables mobile operators to offer 4G/LTE
roaming quickly and with significantly lower up-front investment in
equipment and less strain on their operational resources," said Willem
Offerhaus, CEO of iBasis. "As demand for 4G/LTE continues to grow, we
are able to be very responsive to operators' needs and help them meet
that demand very efficiently."
