Bangalore: Roamware, a mobile roaming software and solutions company, and Sun Microsystems have partnered to lead the Indian roaming solutions market. Their joint partnership processes more than 80 percent of India's international roaming traffic, providing seamless roaming solutions to most of the country's leading mobile service operators.

Globally, Roamware and Sun Microsystems have partnered in more than 140 countries to provide roaming solutions to mobile service providers. Through this partnership, Roamware solutions will be deployed on the Sun platforms, where Sun is the hardware provider for Roamware product solutions. Additionally, the Roamware-Sun partnership also manifests in the extensive performance testing of Roamware solutions in Sun labs, which helps in optimizing Roamware solutions for Sun's hardware resulting in more efficient solutions for our customers.

Rajneesh Kapur, General Manager - SAARC, CIS and Africa, Roamware said "Coping with the speed of growth and the scale of the demands in India has been a challenge but, working in partnership, Roamware and Sun have delivered availability, reliability and coverage to satisfied clients across the sub-continent."

With international roaming calls in India expected to be worth close to $500 million this year, the Roamware and Sun partnership is expected to handle calls to the value of around $400 million, where Roamware currently enjoys a 100 percent penetration in established GSM operators.

"Roaming, while a lucrative business segment within the telecom operators is still an unsaturated market, and thereby an emerging segment which offers huge potential. At the same time it is an offering that helps telecom service providers differentiate themselves in the competitive landscape of the Indian telecom industry and assumes the role of a mission critical service. Sun's network computing infrastructure, combined with Roamware's applications, has helped operators provide high levels of service and derive operational efficiency," said Swapan Dutta, Director, Alliance, Developer Relations and TeleWeb Sales, Sun Microsystems India.

Roamware's 'Roaming Replicator' solution helps its clients leverage the strong roaming relationship and existing roaming infrastructure of other operator(s) to provide seamless coverage and accessibility to international roaming calls of their subscribers. To support these solutions, Sun offers Chip Multi threading based servers, which are high on performance and highly cost efficient at the same time, along with the deployment of Sun Storage 2540 to deliver reliability, flexibility and high-density.
