Sao Paolo, Brazil, 15th May 2023 – XConnect, a Somos Company, the provider of world-class numbering intelligence solutions has expanded its global footprint in LATAM with the launch of its point of presence (PoP) in Sao Paolo, Brazil. The PoP enables XConnect to improve its coverage and latency in the region. It will provide faster responses to an increasing number of traffic queries from Tier 1 carriers, voice and messaging providers, e-commerce, social media and fintech providers.

The launch into LATAM allows XConnect to deliver its Global Number Range (GNR), Number Portability and Home Location Register (HLR) responses with the lowest latency, highest quality, and most precise accuracy. The Sao Paolo data centre enables XConnect’s customers to benefit from the direct routing of voice and messaging traffic, precise origin-based rating (OBR) and fraud mitigation, and revenue assurance.

“Brazil is a developing telecoms market that is continuing to experience growth as consumers seek more streamlined voice and messaging interactions. Our presence in LATAM enables our expanding base of customers in the region to deliver voice and messaging traffic with accuracy, precision, and performance,” said Tim Ward, VP, Number Information Services at XConnect. “This launch is just one way we are continuing to grow our local and global presence and empower more regions to fight against the biggest telecoms challenges including OBR surcharges, robocalling and the artificial inflation of traffic (AIT).” 

Over the past year, XConnect has also introduced PoPs in Mumbai and Singapore as part of its global expansion strategy. The addition of its latest PoP in Sao Paolo enables XConnect to serve its global customers with local presence in APAC, Europe, the US and LATAM.

“Our new PoP is moving us one step closer to empowering our customers in all corners of the globe. We want them to effectively build trust, gain control over their traffic, and grow their business with confidence,” said Ward. “The addition of this PoP allows us to build on our reputation for ultra-fast, accurate query responses and deliver new value for our GNR, Number Portability and HLR solutions.”

The deployment of its latest PoP is part of XConnect’s drive to support its growing customer base in LATAM. It has recently expanded its on-the-ground presence in the region with the hiring of Jose Augusto Vilhena and the onboarding of number portability query (NPQ) data for Uruguay and Columbia.
