Struggling to deliver dynamic and flexible 4G services whilst reducing both Capex and Opex?

ADAX modular EPC provides MVNO’s with the cherry-picking option needed to reduce expenditure and increase the harvest…

Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNOs) want their vertical market service delivery to be dynamic and flexible but at the same time they need to lower both Capex and Opex to be competitive. The same applies to other vertical market operators such as those looking to deliver rural broadband services.

SCTP: A Standard But They Are Not All The Same

Service providers are struggling to provide a highly reliable transport mechanism across all network types that maintains the Five 9s reliability that telecom networks demand.

There is renewed urgency to address signaling-based threats to wireless communications networks and service providers are struggling to protect their networks. As the number of LTE subscribers grows so does the number of connected devices and as the Internet of Things (IoT) continues to snowball vast numbers of devices need to connect to the core network. The underlying transmission protocols, such as SCTP, need to be able to support the huge number of simultaneous connections trying to access the network simultaneously and security in the network is more important today than ever before. Today’s interconnected networks are vulnerable to hijacking via insecure links or rogue network nodes. Application vendors are worried that they can unknowingly allow the network to be compromised when presumably ‘secure VPNs’ invisibly transport threats within packets.

Managing the transition from legacy to LTE in the telecoms world

VanillaPlus, Nov 2016

…Network operators want to grow and adapt to the change but cannot afford to suddenly pack up their bags and leave behind their legacy interfaces. Legacy SS7 based services need to work alongside LTE protocols to ensure that both ends of the functionality spectrum meet the QoS required. Operators need a signaling gateway solution for SS7-IP interworking that they can rely on to ensure the transition from legacy to LTE is as smooth as possible.

Why Narrow Band IoT can help the ever growing concept truly take-off

Telecoms.com, Sept 2016

…With strong predictions that NB-IoT will significantly improve the power consumption of devices, system capacity and spectrum efficiency, especially for deep coverage, at a low cost, operators need to be equipped with the correct tools to make sure it’s a true success. Launches of the technology are expected soon so now is the time for the industry to prepare and ensure everything is in place to cope with the undoubted high demand on the core networks from end users.
