Regional Packet Gateway: The Demand Keeps Growing
Deutsche Telekom Global Carrier’s Regional Packet Gateway Answers Industry Need
Bonn, 5th November 2020 – One year ago Deutsche Telekom Global Carrier (TGC) announced the launch of a solution for the transport requirements of mission-critical IoT and M2M: Regional Packet Gateway. It provides high speed, low latency, high-throughput and ultra-high availability. All those factors are necessary for use cases such as autonomous driving, remote surgery or real-time automation – and for upcoming applications running over 5G networks.
Regional Packet Gateway works by sending data traffic to the nearest of Deutsche Telekom’s globally positioned gateways instead of all the way back to the home country. This local routing allows faster, enhanced delivery, performing with 60% lower packet latency, 100% higher throughput volume and 50% quicker download speeds. The need of the industry for such a solution has become apparent, with demand for the service dramatically growing.
Piotr Kurpiel, Head of DT IoT Core DevOps: “I am really proud of having such IoT product as RPG. It has been built using broad DTAG expertise, including cooperation with TGC where their worldwide presence and strong experience in offering and maintaining such services with required highest quality has strongly contributed to the business success and customer satisfaction.”
Normally, transcontinental data roaming traffic is routed back to the end user’s home network, no matter where that is in the world. When that distance is great, there are delays of 300-500 milliseconds, which are unacceptable for critical uses. Regional Packet Gateway also benefits organizations operating in regions where legal restrictions require content to stay within its borders. As advancements in the telecommunication industry rapidly develop, more customers will require the extra speed local routing provides.
