BICS, a leading international telecommunications enabler, helped establish the live 5G data roaming service between Monaco Telecom and an Italian telecommunications company. This marks another milestone on the road to global 5G roaming. The service leverages BICS' 5G global IPX network to provide secure, reliable, ultra-low latency 5G data connectivity to subscribers.

The announcement follows the launch of the first intercontinental 5G roaming service between Europe and Asia, which was facilitated by BICS in July. Monaco was the first in the world to enable 5G services across its entire territory, meeting the needs of its customers' growing expectations of mobile broadband.

Mikaël Schachne, CMO and VP of Mobility and IoT Business at BICS said that the successful launch of Monaco's 5G roaming services has created a blueprint for other operators in Europe and around the world. BICS is perfectly placed to support mobile operators to launch 5G roaming, considering over half of the world's data roaming traffic is exchanged via its global IPX network.

Martin Peronnet, CEO of Monaco Telecom added “5G technology is a major innovation that enables us to better serve our customers and meet their growing demand for mobility. We broke new ground last summer by rolling out the first fully nationwide 5G service, and, through our close partnership with BICS, have built on this success, meaning more end-users can benefit from borderless, next-generation connectivity.”
