Starhome Mach’s LTE Accelerator Speeds Up Availability of LTE Roaming


The LTE Accelerator from Starhome Mach, the global leader in providing market-driven network and clearing services for the mobile industry, increases operator revenue by delivering LTE roaming without the need for LTE agreements.

Currently, each LTE roaming agreement can take up to four months to implement because of the differences in protocol, billing processes and testing requirements. According to 4G Americas, almost 275 operators have already deployed 4G networks and now need to implement between 50-100 LTE roaming agreements to effectively deliver roaming.

“There is no appetite in the industry to roll out LTE roaming agreement by agreement as happened for 3G,” says Guy Reiffer, VP Marketing & Partnerships at Starhome Mach. “It is too costly for the operator and would take a minimum of three to five years to achieve. We wanted to smooth the transition to LTE and speed time-to-market.”

Starhome Mach’s LTE Accelerator™ solution piggybacks onto operators’ existing 3G agreements, allowing the visited network to provide LTE services to roamers immediately. According to Informa, LTE roamers generate 14.5 times more traffic on average than a non-4G subscriber, significantly increasing revenue. Although 4G connections represent only 2.9 percent of today’s mobile connections, they account for 30 percent of mobile data traffic.

“Maximizing the customer experience is every operator’s goal,” continues Reiffer “Under the status quo, many 4G customers are forced to roam at 3G speeds. Starhome Mach’s LTE Accelerator ensures that LTE customers experience the same high quality of service – and deliver the same high ARPU - no matter their location.”
