“Mobile roaming continues to grow in volume and more recently in complexity. There is a growing need for data clearing house solutions designed to handle both the large volumes of data transactions and the increasing complexity in settlement that will develop with LTE roll outs. The data clearing market has consolidated over recent years leading to fewer choices for customers. We see Aicent’s new data clearing house offering as a welcome sign that the data clearing market is gearing up to deal with the more sophisticated requirements for clearing solutions and will offer mobile operators more choices.”

MK Chang, Executive Vice President, Product Marketing, Aicent

“As the number of LTE networks continues to rise, the rapid growth of roaming traffic has increased the complexities of managing a roaming business for a mobile carrier. Aicent’s new TAP DCH product will offer MNOs around the world a new alternative in their choice of clearing partners.”
