Steering of Roaming
TOMIA’s Steering of Roaming solution (IPN) helps MNOs to optimize roaming costs via optimal steering of outbound roaming subscribers to preferred networks in desired visited countries.
Steering of Roaming solution with rich capabilities
Our IPN covers all underling network and steering technologies which span over all mobile core generations and technologies (2G to 5G, IMS, VoLTE/VoNR, NB- IoT), signalling (MAP, Diameter, HTTP) as well Over-the-Top applications (OTA). IPN’s steering policy can be applied based on multiple criteria such as wholesale targets, quality of service, usage, deal conditions and rates.
Thanks to its flexible community mechanism and complex detection methods, the IPN can segment customers based on network technology, device capabilities, coverage, retail segment/vertical, access technology, service or application used and many more. It also combines AI as well as advanced algorithms when it comes to NB-IoT detection and a presence discovery mechanism.
TOMIA’s IPN is an open, multitenant platform, providing a full variety of deployment models, integration with other network as well as OSS/BSS components, and delivers a cost-effective solution with a short time to market

Cloud and NFV Native
TOMIA addresses market needs with a full range of deployment options –installation of physical hardware on-site, SaaS model on cloud and the industry’s first future-proof and NFV-native infrastructure offering virtual Steering of Roaming.
Hybrid Steering Methods
IPN supports hybrid steering combining signalling and OTA steering for improved accuracy, enhanced user experience, reduced signalling traffic and comprehensive support of user equipment.
IntelliGate and IPN operate naturally in a multi-tenant mode. It’s designed to run multiple OpCos on the same, shared platform. As such, OpCos can operate in complete isolation, on a shared platform if required.
IPN’s cost model enables a new operating company to utilize the hardware platform, database and IntelliGate core modules already in use by an existing IPN operating company to reduce costs.
The IPN platform components are designed to offer a system scalable to the limits of the hardware platform supporting it.
