Madrid, 18 December 2018.- Telefónica Deutschland continues its long lasting relationship with Telefónica’s wholesale business unit, Telefónica International Wholesale Services (TIWS), by signing an agreement making TIWS its main provider for all its international IPX and Roaming services. TIWS will deliver end-to end services to enable Telefónica Deutschland to provide a seamless service experience to their customers no matter in which country they visit.

The agreement includes a fully redundant 100 Gbps IPX Interconnection, delivered at 4 different locations, which supports DCH, Data Roaming, SCCP, International Messaging and LTE services. In addition, there is the commitment to jointly collaborate on the development of a new range of services designed to maximize customer satisfaction while abroad. Most importantly, as part of this agreement and in response to the year-on-year exponential twofold traffic increase, all services cited will be deployed and implemented over two diversified 100 Gbps links each equivalent to the highest Ethernet hierarchy used within the IPX industry. This agreed upgrade fully supports the future traffic growth potential for Telefónica Deutschland.

Among the new services supporting Telefónica Deutschland’s success is the new Marketing Campaigns Manager (MCM) service recently launched by TIWS. Once implemented, MCM will allow Telefónica Deutschland to target roamers based on their specific customer segment with customised offers.
