TNS Helps James Valley Wireless Delight Subscribers with New International Roaming Capabilities – Business Wire (press release)

RESTON, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–James Valley Wireless will use the CCA LTE Roaming Hub (Hub), powered by Transaction
Network Services
(TNS), to offer its subscribers international LTE
roaming services for the first time ever.

The new agreement extends James Valley’s use of the Hub
to cover a leading operator’s Caribbean estate which includes 15
countries across the region.

James Groft, CEO at James Valley, said: “We are delighted to be working
with TNS to enhance our subscriber experience with international LTE
roaming. When our subscribers travel to the Caribbean they can be
assured that they can continue to enjoy the same fast LTE experience
that they enjoy at home.

“Working with TNS and the CCA LTE Roaming Hub
enables us to expand our footprint and reach an area which is popular
with our subscribers as both a business and leisure destination. We
estimate around ten percent of our subscribers need to be able to roam
internationally so today’s announcement is hugely significant for our
business and helps us to meet their needs better and compete more
effectively with the national operators.”

James Valley has been a member of the Hub for over a year and has a
number of agreements in place which provide for domestic LTE roaming
outside of its South Dakota heartland.

Joe Lueckenhoff, Executive Vice President and General Manager of TNS’ Telecommunication
Services Division, said: “We are extremely pleased to see James Valley
extend its relationship with the Hub and enhance its service offering.
Subscribers increasingly expect international roaming to be included as
standard and expect the quality to be in-line with their domestic
network. This presents a significant challenge for smaller operators who
find it a complex, time-consuming and very costly task to negotiate,
manage and maintain multiple agreements with international operators
directly.

“Our Hub provides a far simpler solution which gives rural operators the
ability to satisfy subscriber roaming requirements. Subscribers are
highly mobile and will switch between operators if they are not
receiving the service they demand. High quality international roaming is
also an important requirement for attracting and servicing valuable
business customers who typically travel more frequently.”

Jason Hill, IT Manager at James Valley, added: “TNS’ talented team has
been a vital source of support as we have moved from CDMA to LTE and we
look forward to continuing to work with them. We’re confident that their
extensive technical capabilities, combined with their strong established
relationship with the international operator, will ensure that this roll
out goes smoothly.”

The CCA LTE Roaming Hub provides wireless carriers with a large,
seamless footprint via just one contract, helping to simplify an
operator’s roaming strategy and minimize operational costs. It supports
efficient VoLTE and enables roaming
to and from 4G LTE without circuit-switched fall back to 3G and the
associated quality of service impacts. Hub Break Out optimizes and
routes bearer traffic to and from the Internet without costly and
complex bilateral Local Break Out implementations. Operators can also
gain new revenues as members of the Hub by offering inbound roaming to
others.

TNS has over 500 operator customers and addresses the full needs of
wireless and wireline operators in the US and globally. TNS’ networks
