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.
