Scalable EPC is a flexible core network solution for deployment of 4G LTE mobile networks. It consists of a software platform capable of providing key Evolved Packet Core network component functions including the Mobile Management Entity (MME), the Serving Gateway (S-GW), and the Packet Data Network Gateway (PDN-GW). In addition to these network elements, capabilities for the Home Subscriber Server (HSS) can also be provided.
The scalable EPC is suitable for scalable deployment of 4G LTE networks by leveraging commercial computing platforms identified and selected towards a network operators particular network size and growth requirements. Public mobile networks can be deployed on high capacity computing platforms, while smaller private or remote broadband networks can be supported by enterprise server platforms or even small form factor CPU modules.
Each of the network functions within the scalable EPC can be deployed across individual and/or multiple hardware systems. The system architecture enables a deployment architecture that distribute session management, reduce backhaul traffic and offer a great Quality of Experience for its users.
- Remote & Rural Networks
- Public Safety Broadband Networks
- Private LTE Networks
- Application and device test networks
Software Licensing based on:
- Number of devices registered to MME
- Number of simultaneous sessions supported by S-GW & PDN-GW
- Number of users in the optional internal HSS
IMG provides a cost-effective, standards-compliant solution for completing calls between traditional telephone and wireless networks. This powerful platform delivers full-featured functionality and uncompromising performance in a Compact PCI form factor.
When deployed remotely at the edge of the network,our IMG enables operators to connect to TDM networks such as the local PSTN. On a distributed network, multiple IMGs can support small concentrations of traffic and offload backhaul links from carrying unnecessary voice traffic. Deployed with the RAN solution, remote IMGs enable operators to reach new coverage areas by sharing a common, All-IP switching core.
