TAMPA, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Syniverse, "the world's most connected company,"® has been recognized by consulting and market research firm Kaleido Intelligence as one of the best vendors to enable 5G roaming for operators in its "5G Roaming: Consumer and IoT Strategies 2023" report.
The report analyzes the 5G roaming landscape, assessing key trends, developments, and requirements. It also offers feedback from leading operator groups about 5G opportunities and revenue drivers, technical specifications for mobile network operators (MNOs), and an outlook on the market.
"Being named as one of Kaleido Intelligence's top vendors for 5G roaming solutions once again demonstrates Syniverse's unparalleled track record of successfully guiding operators through network transformations, which we have done for more than 30 years," remarked Andrew Davies, Chief Executive Officer, Syniverse. "As Kaleido's report details, more than 85% of participating MNOs plan to launch 5G standalone roaming by the end of 2025. We will continue providing best-in-class service as they build out their next-generation networks as well as facilitating uninterrupted service for their subscribers, regardless of where they may travel."
Kaleido Intelligence estimates that consumer mobile and Internet of Things (IoT) devices will exceed 5,000 petabytes of 5G data roaming traffic globally by 2028, when approximately 100 million machine-to-machine (M2M) connections will roam over 5G networks.
That data represents 78% average annual growth, and it will account for more than 70% of worldwide data roaming traffic and lead to nearly $100 billion in roaming revenues for mobile operators over the next five years.
Syniverse was one of six vendors spotlighted in the report, which singled out the company's 5G Signaling Controller as a leading 5G technology evolution. 5G Signaling Controller is an HTTP2-based solution designed specifically to efficiently enable roaming for 5G standalone networks and deliver 5G experiences and market opportunities.
The report also highlighted the value of Syniverse's voice-over-LTE (VoLTE) roaming solutions, which can be deployed by MNOs with their roaming partners to provide a seamless experience for subscribers. The most recent and first-of-its-kind capability, Evolved Mobility for Outbound Roaming, is a cloud-based feature introduced in February to complement Evolved Mobility for Inbound Roaming. Together, the products allow MNOs retiring their 3G networks to serve roamers with VoLTE-enabled devices to and from roaming partners who have not yet launched VoLTE.
