Signaling Hub

PA-Signaling Hub

Roaming and interworking are at the center of the GSM success story. For MNOs, having a bilateral relationship is somehow a time-consuming and complex procedure. Because of the overall cost of establishing bilateral relationships, operators are reluctant to open new roaming and interworking agreements. Mobile operators are increasingly searching for ways to further improve overall business efficiencies. PA-Signaling Hub offers a scalable and innovative solution for MNOs worldwide to overcome this concern. Having a single agreement with PA-Signaling Hub consequently lets mobile operators have the opportunity to access global operators in a fully transparent manner.
