With many more in deployment, that’s a rapid take up since the first 4G-LTE networks were launched in Sweden and Norway in 2009.” says Simon Dodsworth, VP Voice & Mobile, TeliaSonera International Carrier.“The key to supporting 4G-users ‘home’ network experience when visiting another mobile network when travelling abroad, is IPX. Yet there is widespread confusion about what IPX actually is.”

Bernd Hoogkamp, Director, Product Management, Voice and Mobile, speaking at the conference said, “With IPX networks and services still being defined, industry analysts have highlighted a considerable lack of understanding around IPX. TeliaSonera International Carrier is home of the TeliaSonera IPX, part of the TeliaSonera group of 17 mobile operators, and talks to interested parties about IPX every day. We want to share and raise the level of understanding to move IPX forward, assembling high quality resources and offering the ability to ask questions to an  ‘IPXpert’ panel of experts.
