Vodafone IPX Signalling
Cost savings with high-quality, committed signalling capacity
IPX Signalling supports roaming solutions and efficient, feature rich access to the Vodafone Messaging Hub
providing service aware, multilateral connectivity and hubbing services
Vodafone IPX Sigtran
It grants access to our SS7 Network, covering the need for 2G/3G signalling and roaming, enabling global, real time transport and delivery of SS7 messages (MSUs), over IP.
Vodafone has successfully completed a POC for 5G stand alone roaming (signalling). Please contact us to learn more about this future service offering.
Vodafone IPX Diameter
It supports 4G enabled MNOs by facilitating the global and reliable exchange of Diameter Transactions (DTRs), providing access to our worldwide Diameter Network. The shared interface guarantees cost savings by helping the fast rollout of 4G roaming with global, real time delivery of 4G signalling messages and interworking between mobile operators.
Vodafone IPX HTTP2
It enables 5G roaming by facilitating the global and reliable exchange of HTTP2 messages over IP, providing access to Vodafone’s HTTP2 network. As with the other IPX signalling services, the shared interface guarantees cost savings by helping the fast rollout of 5G roaming with global, real time delivery of 5G signalling messages and interworking between mobile operators.
Vodafone IPX Data
Access infrastructure simply and exchange data securely
Vodafone IPX Data offers a secure IP access to our privately managed global MPLS network for a range of
services with guaranteed quality classes. Vodafone IPX Data delivers global connectivity via peering
arrangements with other IPX providers.
Vodafone IPX Transport/GRX
Offers guaranteed and transparent data exchange with different quality classes to all service providers.
