Wholesale 10 February 2016

Madrid (Spain), 10th of February.- Telefonica Business Solutions, a leading provider of a wide range of integrated communication solutions for the B2B market, has recently signed an IPX multiservice network alliance with TeliaSonera International Carrier, part of TeliaSonera AB, a Swedish international telecommunications- and mobile network operator.

This agreement also includes roaming services on Sigtran and Diameter signalling and IPX-based IP-payload services; GRX or S8. The alliance allows the two groups to jointly prepare other scenarios which will support other new services in the future.

Telefonica were recently awarded with the Best IPX Exchange award at Global Carrier Awards 2015 held during Capacity Europe in Paris for our pioneering IPX Suite. The accolade recognises the development of our relevant portfolio of services over IPX along with the comprehensive set of agreements we have established with key partners.

This is combined with the fact that TeliaSonera International Carrier was awarded winner of the 2015 Global Telecoms Business Innovation Award for most advanced cloud based 4G signalling service, along with being recognized as the Best Global Wholesale Data Carrier – based on their focus on innovation and customer centricity at the 2015 Global Capacity Awards.

Hence it makes perfect sense, for the two multi-award winning partners to collaborate and therefore expand their IPX-based businesses.

The agreement between TeliaSonera International Carrier and Telefonica Business Solutions will be of benefit to the customers of both parties providing an exhaustive coverage for several services and guaranteed QoS. It also ensures all our connected customers to have the best service possible.
