Nex-Tech Wireless connects with United Wireless as first carriers to implement production LTE services to the TNS-powered CCA Data Services Hub.

October 2nd, 2014 Reston, VA:  Mobile operators Nex-Tech Wireless and United Wireless, premier providers offering advanced wireless solutions to residents in both Kansas and Colorado, have expanded their respective relationships with TNS to address their LTE roaming needs. Through the CCA Data Services Hub, TNS will provide IPX services enabling both carriers to utilize the hub for LTE roaming across each other’s regions.  With these new agreements in place, TNS paves-the-way for both Nex-Tech Wireless and United Wireless to leverage the hub in establishing favorable agreements for both inbound and outbound LTE roaming with strategic wireless partners in the United States and international carriers looking to access the Nex-Tech Wireless and United Wireless footprint. 

Having an extensive presence across central, western and southwestern Kansas, as well as coverage to 4 counties in Colorado, Nex-Tech Wireless and United Wireless have taken a huge step towards enhancing their subscriber’s experience by geographically expanding their roaming capabilities to include LTE. The TNS-powered CCA Data Services Hub solution will ensure that Nex-Tech Wireless and United Wireless subscribers experience the remarkable capabilities brought about by the introduction of LTE services.

“The decision by Nex-Tech Wireless to join the CCA Data Services Hub and expand their portfolio of services is a testament to their satisfaction of how these solutions work to solve the mobility needs of their subscribers,” said David Kaemmer, Vice President of Sales, Telecommunication Services Division of TNS. “We are excited to have Nex-Tech Wireless and United Wireless join the CCA Data Services Hub and to see the TNS team dedication to helping expand their LTE footprint”

Aaron Gillespie, Director of Operations for Nex-Tech Wireless, also commented, “Nex-Tech Wireless and TNS have had a long-standing relationship. When we started looking at strategically expanding our LTE roaming capabilities it made sense to pursue a vendor who has a proven track record and an established rapport with our company. We are happy to be a part of the CCA Data Services Hub and see a bright future for carriers, like ourselves, with this solution.”

Mike Laskowsky of United Wireless also noted that, “by joining the CCA Data Services Hub, we are able to significantly expand the reach and coverage of our own LTE footprint in a cost-effective and subscriber-centric way. This new model of interconnection will help to ensure that we can bring to market LTE services faster, better, and more cost-effectively than previous 3G solutions.
