Telecom player, Tata Communications, has got into a partnership with Bharti Telesoft – a mobile VAS solution provider to launch intelligent camel exchange (ICX).
Camel exchange is a value-added service that enables mobile operators to reduce the time frame, cost of implementing and maintaining camel roaming relationships.
Last month, the CDMA major offered its ICX service on a limited availability basis to four of the world's largest mobile network operators allowing them to open up camel-based roaming to one of China's largest mobile phone operators during the Beijing Olympics Games.
Tata Communications currently offers camel roaming and connectivity to China, the United Kingdom, Romania, Malaysia, Indonesia and Sweden, with more than 30 additional operators.
"Tata Communications is committed to offering the most innovative services to our customers worldwide," said Allan Chan, executive vice president, mobile services for Tata Communications. "Our trial participants are now able to open service to other destinations to help them go beyond Beijing and fast track their roaming reach around the world," he added.
As part of the ICX offering Tata Communications manages the monitoring and troubleshooting of Camel roaming issues within ICX service-users.
