TNS Delivers Next Generation Data Services Hub Including LTE Roaming Solutions for CCA Members

 

RESTON, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Transaction Network Services (TNS) will deliver a next generation Data Services Hub solution that includes LTE Roaming Services for CCA members. The TNS Data Services Hub is the only roaming hub of its kind in the industry, and this unique platform will provide participating operators the opportunity to connect for services including 4G LTE roaming, Wi-Fi access and interoperability with requisite 3G roaming fallback. CCA issued a formal request for proposal (RFP) for organizations interested in hosting the Data Services Hub, and TNS was selected by CCA’s Business Innovation Group’s steering committee, made up of carrier members of various sizes and geographies.

“For competitive carriers to continue to compete and survive in the marketplace, they must have real roaming solutions, and I am pleased that TNS will provide a platform to achieve this important goal”

The TNS Data Services Hub will provide a technical and business framework for simplifying LTE and other next generation data connectivity and roaming needs among participating operators. The solution will provide value to competitive carriers by enabling them to work more easily with one another to expand their national footprints. It will also benefit the international community by providing a single point of interconnection to the CCA community for negotiation, execution, implementation, and operation of roaming agreements for LTE and next generation data services.

“For competitive carriers to continue to compete and survive in the marketplace, they must have real roaming solutions, and I am pleased that TNS will provide a platform to achieve this important goal,” said CCA President & CEO Steven K. Berry. “The migration to next generation platforms such as LTE represents one of the most important technology shifts our industry has ever faced. TNS’s Data Services Hub will provide a unique opportunity for CCA member operators to innovate and create next generation services that are flexible, standards-based and enhance the end-user experience.”

Surendra Saboo, CEO of TNS’ Telecom Services Division, stated, “Enabling LTE roaming and next generation data services is a critical step for operators to realize high margin roaming revenues, grow ARPU, and prevent the churn of high-value subscribers. As a long-time supplier and partner to CCA operator members, TNS is committed to enhancing a vibrant wireless community and supporting their progression to LTE. We are thrilled to be selected as CCA’s Data Services Hub and take great pride in serving our customers in their successful migration to the exciting new world of next generation technologies.”

The CCA Data Services Hub solution provided by TNS is an advanced 4G roaming ecosystem that supports scale, provides interoperability across multiple vendor variants and protocols, including LTE, and preserves the flexibility of operator choice. Through the hosted solution, CCA members can optimize both capital and operational resources during the evolution, activation and implementation of next generation data services.

TNS and Raptor Trading Systems Target Latin American Financial Markets

 

RESTON, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Raptor Trading Systems and Transaction Network Services (NYSE:TNS) are strengthening their position within the Latin American (Latam) financial markets and opening up access to trade to their North American customer base.

“Using TNS’ resilient and diverse connectivity, the Latam financial community can securely trade without the need for costly infrastructure. Our solutions can be seamlessly integrated and provide a sustainable long term resolution for markets of this type.”

Raptor, the leading provider of client facing trading systems, is working primarily with TNS to allow cross-connectivity through TNS’ secure trading network to the Latam markets that are experiencing a strong growth trajectory.

The strategic partnership between Raptor and TNS will allow both companies to target a growing market that is experiencing a great deal of regulatory change as well as technological advancement being impacted by increasing levels of online trading.

Previously, regulatory requirements constrained the Latam markets, making it difficult for firms to undertake global financial trading activity. Recent changes have included firms replacing legacy vendor and proprietary systems and opting to invest in customizable, low latency trading solutions. These changes have helped them achieve greater operating efficiency and provide a strong platform to compete in.

Teddy Lardos, CEO of Raptor Trading Systems said: “The Latam markets significantly benefit from low latency solutions and our collaboration with TNS allows us to bring that service to market. The joint solution also addresses broker requirements and removes the need for them to upgrade their technology to trade. For a cautious and regulated market, flexible and transparent solutions can be the only way to reach markets such as Brazil, Chile, Columbia and Mexico.”

Alan Schwartz, President of TNS’ Financial Services Division said: “Varied regulations and fluctuating electronic market access has compelled local and international players into seeking flexible and reliable solutions. TNS has the ability to keep up with the increasing rate of change and together with Raptor, are in a favorable position to gain a rewarding position in this fast-paced market.

“Using TNS’ resilient and diverse connectivity, the Latam financial community can securely trade without the need for costly infrastructure. Our solutions can be seamlessly integrated and provide a sustainable long term resolution for markets of this type.”

TNS’ secure trading network represents buy-side and sell-side institutions, market data and software vendors, exchanges and alternative trading venues, via more than 125 points of presence. TNS’ financial services division enables end-users to connect in over 45 countries.
