Abstract [en]

Since Mobile network operator (MNO) relies on many Business Support Systems (BSS) and Operation Support Systems (OSS) it should be assured that operator’s systems supports the requirements of the future.This thesis shall focus on the “start-to-end” aspects that must be considered to ensure that International Roaming continues to operate flawless. The thesis experience Long Term Evolution (LTE) in case of international roaming by measuring the end to end location update delay.In order to evaluate the LTE performance of international roaming, the delay time has been measured by the means of tracing tools for several different international roamers and the results has been compared with the results achieved for local user. The outcome has been compared with the respecting results in 3G network the statistical results has been provided and the graphs has been plotted to study the performance.Based on the results obtain on this thesis, it has been concluded that local user acts more stable to get attach to the network, i.e. there are less fluctuation in delay times for local user. Also the delay time in 3G networks is more than the LTE networks, however 3G networks acts more stable and there are less fluctuation to get connects to 3G networks.
