In an unprecedented move within the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, Batelco, operating under the umbrella of Beyon Group, has unveiled its novel “Mobile Peering” service, which is now available for all members of the Manama Internet Exchange (MN-IX). This innovative offering marks Batelco as the first entity in the MENA region to provide such a service, positioning it at the forefront of digital connectivity and telecommunications.

Mobile Peering stands out as an open and secure interconnection solution. It has been crafted to enable mobile operators as well as Internet Packet Exchange (IPX) providers to seamlessly and securely exchange global mobile roaming data. The service paves the way for a transformation in the way mobile data is handled across borders, offering a new level of efficiency and user experience.

The advantages of Mobile Peering are multifaceted. One of the key benefits is the enhancement of network efficiency coupled with a notable reduction in latency. This is achieved through the establishment of direct connections between mobile providers on the MN-IX platform. By facilitating direct exchanges of mobile traffic, the service ensures an optimized roaming experience for end users of mobile operators.

Furthermore, the Mobile Peering service eliminates the reliance on third-party entities for the transit of mobile data traffic. This strategic bypass can significantly reduce operational costs for mobile operators, which, in turn, holds the potential for these savings to be transferred to end-users. The result is a more cost-effective and competitive mobile roaming data landscape.

Batelco’s commitment to innovation and customer-centric solutions is evident in its continuous effort to diversify and enrich its service portfolio. With the introduction of Mobile Peering, Batelco reaffirms its dedication to addressing the dynamic needs of its customers. The company’s strategic vision for Manama-IX is not just to lead the IX sphere in the MENA region but to also act as a catalyst for the enhancement of Internet connectivity services throughout the area. Batelco’s initiative reflects a significant stride towards the company’s overarching goal of fostering a more interconnected and accessible digital world.
