The Facts Jack: Fact 1 - HP Enables 400M to Roam


SOE.jpg“Roam … if you want to … roam around the world …”


Are you roaming around the world? Perhaps traveling to Barcelona for Mobile World Congress next week? Making and receiving calls? Using voice and data? Without even knowing it, you are probably hopping from, between, and through multiple networks too — 2G, 3G, 4G/LTE and WiFi.


Works pretty well doesn’t it? But you aren’t thinking “Woot! Thanks, HP Home Location Register (HRL)! Thanks, HP Home Subscriber Server (HSS)!” Why would you? It is seamless to consumers if it’s working right. Yet there HP is — with its HLR/HSS hard at work, letting you take a tip from the B52s and “Roam [as] you want to … Roam around the world.” 

You’re very likely one of the 400M global mobile phone subscribers reaping the benefits of HP’s HLR. 38 global service providers use it in their networks, so you can roam from your home service area to other areas and still get appropriate voice and data services. And to be clear, we’re not just talking about place-to-place but from and to all types of networks. With patented interoperability between protocols for high efficiency, and transparent evolution, HP HLR/HSS can integrate into every carrier network. Subscribers can be migrated transparently and without service disruptions when migrating between network technologies.  


Sometimes I lose track of where I am, but it’s nice to know my carrier keeps up with my physical self.

If you want to learn more, or check out how HP leverages data to improve subscriber experiences, come see us at Mobile World Congress, February 25-28, Hall 7, #7D112!
