SAP And WIS TELECOM Join Forces To Deliver IPX Voice Traffic Globally

BARCELONA, Spain, Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Responding to the growing demand for IP eXchange (IPX) voice services, SAP AG (NYSE: SAP) and WIS TELECOM S.p.A., a leading telecommunications company, today announced an agreement that brings together the strengths of both parties to address the need, expressed by the mobile operators, for a comprehensive multi-service IPX solution that combines quality improvement with cost transparency. The announcement was made at Mobile World Congress 2013, being held in Barcelona, Spain, February 25-28, where SAP is located at Hall 7, 7C70.

The agreement extends the SAP ecosystem for IPX globally. WIS TELECOM demonstrates excellence in the international voice market and has extensive voice interconnection direct reach, while SAP shares experience in the rollout of IPX voice services in the Asia-Pacific region.

"Today's announcement from Mobile World Congress is befitting with this year's event theme of exploring the new mobile horizon, as our agreement with WIS TELECOM changes the game for operators," said John Sims, president, SAP Mobile Services. "Direct IPX routing of voice calls to remote regions brings demonstrable improvement of quality and cost transparency. With the roll-out of LTE networks and the launch of voice over LTE, moving to IPX is no longer a choice but a necessity."

IPX enables mobile operators to deliver operational efficiencies, cost savings and improves service quality to end users. They can do so by combining interconnects across various platforms, such as voice, data roaming, LTE roaming and diameter hub, roaming signalling and messaging. As a result of this agreement, WIS TELECOM and SAP plan to create a leading IPX voice proposition that supports end-to-end quality to meet growing demand across the globe. Compared to traditional IP-based voice services, this improvement in quality will be particularly noticeable on voice calls between dispersed geographic regions.
