Technical MVNO solution - Interconnect and roaming agreement
You can have an MVNO roaming agreement with an MNO or/and a Roaming Hub to give you access to more subscribers or for better rates.
Further, you will learn more about MVNO solutions for interconnects and network flows. The topics covered in this page are:
MVNO Roaming agreement and interconnect
First of all, the MVNO needs an interconnection with a Mobile Network Operator for using their Radio Access Network.
The other interconnect has to be with a roaming hub because the MVNO would need to have his subscribers roaming in a lot of networks all over the world.
1. Interconnect with an MNO
2. Interconnect with Roaming Hubs
A Roaming Hub can make things a lot easier for you and is a good MVNO solution for you because you have one agreement instead of thousands of roaming agreements with operators worldwide.

Types of tests to validate the interconnect
When deploying a full MVNO network you need to test every technical aspect ahead. For every service package there are multiple scenarios that need to be tested.
VoLTE Lab is a complete test suite for Voice-over-LTE, that includes the LTE LabKit, the MiniCore and two iPhone 6s. It is fully configured and intended for use as a VoLTE test bed and learning environment. With VoLTE Lab you can have a deep view into the internals of VoLTE technology, with Wireshark.
