Roaming in LTE Network: Is it Challenge for Operators?

In the competitive edge of telecom, roaming is one of the biggest challenges for the telecom operators. They do not apply the real charging systems to the subscribers as per their network services. Generally roaming is just a concept of charging to users as they switch network area. For example if someone using any particular company SIM and visiting out of network area then it is quite complex for the operators to manage the signal and frequencies.

Earlier, so many network technologies already in the market such as 1G, 2G and 3G but these technologies are not able to manage roaming charges at effective way. In this way the new technology came in the market that is long term revolution. It also referred as 4G technology for the network management.

Few days ago when LTE was not in the existence, the operators do not able to provide the network signal to the users, so that the user experience going in narrow bottom and business as well. Suppose you are travelling somewhere and using a SIM card of Vodafone, but in the visiting area the Vodafone network is not available, in this situation LTE roaming facilitate you network coverage of available network.

There are few platforms are available in the market, that can help to manage the signal to the operators. Diameter signaling platform is one of the best solutions ever to manage the telecom network. The main benefit of LTE is high throughput, lower latency and plug and play type system. LTE can also support some previous network protocols such as GSM, CDMA and WCDMA. This system is based on packet switching and pure IP based concept which is very easy to manage the signal frequency and networking functionality. It is pure wireless network that will give more than 174 mbps.

Reliable telecom services can only keep the customers for long time and help to enhance the user experience. If users are looking to buy services, in that situation they have to make wise decision to select the best telecom service provider. Some operators are playing some fraud kind of offers, but don’t attract those kinds of services because that is not best solution. Try to track the records of previous customer satisfaction ratio and then choose the operator. At the end, long term evolution is one of the wireless revolution technologies that can enhance the user experience and it is also beneficial for the operators to keep customer happy.
