In 2017, LTE traffic rose to 54 percent of global outbound roaming traffic, surpassing non-LTE data, at 42 percent, for the first time. The milestone was announced in a recent study by Syniverse, a global transaction processor that connects approximately 1,300 mobile service providers, enterprises, ISPs and OTTs in nearly 200 countries and territories. According to the research, in 2017, LTE roaming volume grew 121 percent across six regions. In terms of concentration, the Americas represents 79 percent of the global LTE roaming volume.
“Our data points to the fact that while the rollout of LTE networks is advancing at a healthy rate, the mobile industry must accelerate its efforts to fully capture the 5G opportunity,” said John Wick, Senior Vice President at Syniverse. “Industry attention has been focused on the most innovative technologies of 5G. However, just as crucial for 5G adoption is integrating technologies like IPX to ensure global connectivity and security, which have been important pillars in the success of the mobile industry.”
The increase in LTE roaming has been supported by IPX infrastructure, and as LTE-5G coexistence scenarios are expected to be the norm, IPX will serve as the foundation for global 5G connectivity for billions of “things” via the Internet of Things.
