Today, our customers expect us to connect them to any device, anywhere, with the best quality of service, over the fastest and most reliable networks. Elise Le Lonn and Jérémy Péan, product managers at Orange Wholesale explain that “we continue to invest in our one-stop shop for roaming.” Elise Le Lonn specifies that “it includes the latest innovations in 5G, analytics, and support for IoT connectivity needs.” Jérémy Péan adds that “Orange’s Roaming Sponsor solution provides outbound roaming coverage for travelers as well as any IoT device, virtually anywhere in the world, taking advantage of permanent roaming capabilities and Orange’s trusted global network of Tier 1 and Tier 2 partners.”
Our solution provides regional local breakout for 5G with 40 PoPs in key cities across Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa with the goal of reaching 100 PoPs by the end of 2024. Any custom IoT use case can be imagined, some of which have already been adopted in automotive, asset-tracking, health services, and consumer electronics. For example, a connected car can be fitted with a single SIM card right from the assembly line, ready to work in any specific international market, or combination of destinations. In addition, IoT could help to make a positive impact on the environment. To give you an idea of the scale of what we are talking about, according to a McKinsey study, IoT is set to change the world, potentially delivering $12.6 trillion in economic value over the next decade.
MVNOs and MNOs players that benefit from Orange’s Roaming Sponsor solution may want to gain more control over their connections, monetize their inbound roaming, and also sign bilateral agreements. That’s where Orange’s Roaming Hub solution comes in. It makes it easy to open roaming routes with support for all the latest GSMA standards and a full suite of enablers. The roaming hub solution helps customers to move from a bilateral to a multilateral roaming model with a simple connection.
