Deutsche Telekom Global Carrier (DTGC) and its partners have made a giant leap forward in their mission to bring 5G standalone roaming to Europe and Asia. Through their collaboration, DTGC has connected Swiss telecoms operator Sunrise with AIS Thailand, providing the basis for intercontinental 5G roaming.The GSMA’s security edge protection proxy (SEPP) protocol is used for end-to-end confidentiality between networks. As part of the development process, DTGC is testing a range of proof-of-concepts related to 5G signalling and security, value-added services for 5G roaming, network slicing for roaming and regional and local breakout. To provide secure interconnection between 5G networks, DTGC can host SEPP on its IPX network. According to Farzin Niikrouyan, Vice President of International Network Services at Deutsche Telekom Global Carrier: “Partnerships will be key in driving innovation during the transition to fifth generation technology”. This success highlights the massive potential of collaborations between telecommunications providers in developing new technologies that will shape the future of 5G connectivity around the world.
Telecommunications companies are pioneering new technologies every day, pushing boundaries while also working together to create better global connectivity solutions that ensure both reliability and security. This latest collaboration is not only a great example of industry leaders coming together but also an indication that improved interoperability between networks is required now more than ever before as networks continue to evolve towards greater sophistication. The introduction of these new technologies into the market helps ensure data privacy and allows users access to services which would not have been possible before. It also plays an important role in helping companies stay competitive by enabling them to use the most advanced communication infrastructure available today.
With this project leading the way for future relationships between telecommunications companies all over the world, we may well be witnessing a revolution in how we communicate globally via mobile phones without having face any problems with traffic or connection issues caused by distance or border restrictions. By continuing to work together and make use of resources available, telecoms providers can ensure that 5G roaming is a success. With the right investments in infrastructure and collaboration between companies, 5G intercontinental roaming will soon become a reality for many users across Europe and Asia. The possibilities offered by this breakthrough are immense. 5G connections enable faster speeds and improved latency, allowing users to access services with greater efficiency. With more reliable connections, users can make calls over longer distances with no interruptions, have access to high-bandwidth services such as streaming and gaming, or use virtual reality applications without any problems.
