We are excited to be one of the first operators in the world to implement an LTE roaming solution. Aicent’s extensive experience developing and integrating LTE roaming solutions made them an obvious choice to partner with.

Aicent, the world’s leading multi-service IPX of mobile data network services and solutions for mobile carriers globally, today announced that Digicel, a leading mobile operator serving markets in the Caribbean and Central America, has successfully interconnected its LTE network to one of the largest tier one mobile operators located in North America through Aicent’s LTE Roaming Exchange network.


  • Utilizing Aicent’s LTE Roaming Exchange, Digicel subscribers located in the Caribbean and subscribers of one of North America’s prominent mobile operators can now roam seamlessly between each other’s supported LTE networks while maintaining high speed connections to the data demanding applications they have become accustomed to — creating a consistent user experience both at home and while traveling abroad to North America.
  • By implementing Aicent’s LTE Roaming Exchange, Digicel is able to eliminate the complexities of interconnection and interworking associated with global LTE roaming by offering a single connection point while enabling protocol interworking across multiple global mobile operators, in addition to negating the need to separately negotiate numerous bilateral agreements.
  • Aicent’s Diameter Signaling and IPX Transport services within the LTE Roaming Exchange offers Digicel multiple Class of Service (CoS) and an end-to-end Quality of Service (QoS) commitments while managing signaling congestion and mitigating LTE’s continued growth.
