Product Assessment - Global IP Exchange

Summary

Stacks

Vodafone Carrier Services’ (VCS) IPX portfolio was ranked Very Strong in the Global IPX segment by Current analysis, based on our product portfolio’s capabilities and scale, our global fixed and mobile operations and one of the largest on-net 4G roaming footprints. As of 31 March 2016, Vodafone had 462 million mobile customers and 13.4 million fixed broadband customers.

VCS carried between 4 and 7 billion diameter signalling transactions per month, with a peak rate of more than 2,000 diameter transactions per second during 2015.

The IPX platform has achieved its forecast cost savings by internalising traffic between its 26 OpCo markets. Most of VCS’ voice traffic is still on the TDM network. Our IPX enables the exchange of voice traffic using the newly introduced International Voice (Intelligent Routing) platform. The percentage of voice traffic carried over the Vodafone IPX is still small but the growth rate of voice minutes migrated to IPX is significant, as we migrate more of our 462+ million subscribers over our IPX platform.

First and foremost, the carrier’s IPX platform is intended as a supporting pillar for Vodafone’s, and its MNO partners’, mobile strategies. VCS’ IPX represents an access point between its network and the hundreds of MNOs with which the operator interfaces. 95% of IPX prospects are likely to be colocated in telehouses used by VCS, and that VCS networks pass 70% of its prospects’ networks directly.
