iBasis and Turkcell Collaborate to Open an IPX Point of Presence in Istanbul

iBasis and Turkcell have collaborated to open an IPX Point of Presence (PoP) in Istanbul. The new IPX PoP builds on Turkcell's efforts to provide multiple services including 2G/3G and LTE Signaling and Roaming to enrich the customer roaming experience and is expected to stimulate growth in LTE services throughout the region. The PoP also expands the reach of the iBasis global IPX network, which already includes more than 450 LTE destinations worldwide. As a result of this collaboration, Eurasian and Middle Eastern mobile operators now have a single point of contact for global IPX reach with secure end-to-end quality of service, enabling them to offer roaming subscribers the full range of LTE services. By offering roaming services from Istanbul, the new iBasis PoP will support growth of the mobile ecosystem and accelerate the market for LTE services throughout Eurasia and Middle East. The geographical redundancy, diversity of transmission routes and high availability of the Turkcell network infrastructure will secure service stability.

UROS and ibasis Collaborate to Enable Roaming IoT Devices

UROS and iBasis have collaborated to be the first to remotely provision a user subscription in a mobile hotspot device. The new global mobile access technology allows the UROS’ Goodspeed mobile hotspots, Goodspeed Roaming-enabled smartphones and many other connected UROS IoT devices, to update to a selected local mobile operator subscription automatically as users travel across borders, all using a single SIM. The solution uses eSIM technology developed by the GSMA in cooperation with Operator Groups, leading SIM providers and OEMs. UROS has its own patented IoT platform which is capable of monitoring and provisioning connected devices in real time to facilitate selection of the most appropriate connectivity. The solution is based on the GSMA’s embedded SIM (eSIM) specification for machine to machine (M2M) connections. The standard provides a de-facto mechanism for remote “over the air” provisioning of an initial operator subscription, and the subsequent change of subscription from one operator to another. The standard is currently used to solve end-user challenges including initial provisioning of a device, profile update during device life time and profile update based on device location. Standardized technology ensures the security and reliability of the solution for all the players in the ecosystem. UROS and iBasis are associate members of GSMA.
