IP and interconnectivity

The GSMA believes that achieving two key goals will enable all stakeholders to make a viable business:

  • Seamless interoperability of IP services between all types of operators delivering secure, high quality service interworking
  • Commercial and technical frameworks that enable all parties in the interworking value chain to receive a fair commercial return

Working with operators, the GSMA has developed a managed IP network solution called the IP eXchange (IPX) that provides the commercial and technical solutions to manage IP traffic.

It follows the GSMA’s four key principles that are seen as vital for a successful and sustainable IP Interworking solution:

  • Openness
  • Quality
  • Cascading payments
  • Efficient connectivity
