Deutsche Telekom expands roaming capabilities with the new LTE Diameter Signaling service
Bonn, November 18, 2013 – Today, International Carrier Sales & Solutions (ICSS), the international wholesale arm of Deutsche Telekom, announced its new LTE Diameter Signaling service, which gives customers the ability to roam over 4G networks while travelling internationally.

Via its IPX network, ICSS can connect its LTE roaming customers with more than 800 mobile networks and over 1 million hotspots for global signaling roaming connectivity .
