A1 Wholesale Global IPX services secure and stable
Mobile operators are always as strong as their connections. Therefore, to provide a globally stable roaming service, you need absolutely reliable IPX services like those offered by A1 Wholesale. The services include a wide range for maximum connectivity, including 5G. During 2021, a 5G signaling service will also be available. And since numbers always speak for success, A1 also offers A1 Roaming Traffic Reporting and Analytics, a comprehensive analysis tool for visualizing all types of roaming traffic.
This year´s Rocco survey has put questions along the topic how prepared vendors are to provide more connectivity in an upcoming 5G scenario.
When questioned on the biggest challenges today when working with IPX services, MNOs have uttered 5G-related topics (“5G SA deployment globally”, “IPX role in pushing operator to get VoLTE and 5G”.), Cost&Pricing („Wide range of pricing and security“) and the security issue („SEPP intelligence“). Furthermore, Capacity & Connectivity were also major concerns („Capacity growth“,“Bandwidth commitment“).
Rocco has been labelled “the Michelin of the Roaming and Interconnect Industry” facilitating the rating of Vendors to understand their performance and market leadership. ROCCO does not judge the Vendors directly, it facilitate MNOs in rating them and giving opinions across the vast Vendor base. Thus creating a community for information and advice exchange on specific important Vendor decisions and along the way, some ideas for innovation MNOs would like to see and Vendors might be interested in exploring.
Over 500 MNOs each year contribute to ROCCO Research. After discarding those companies without sufficient votes we have ranked 6 vendors inside the tier one category. This year’s highest vendor rating is 4.61, which is a higher rating than in the previous report.
