SS7ware’s insights from the MVNOs World Congress

Post Syndicated from Yate Team original https://blog.yate.ro/2017/05/08/ss7ware-insights-from-the-mvnos-world-congress/

We just got back from the MVNOs World Congress, in Nice, where we did quite a good impression with our YateHSS/HLR and YateUCN solutions for MVNOs. The “not so shocking” conclusion that we came to was that our public pricing policy impacts the MVNO market at its core.

YateHSS/HLR breaks the barriers to entry into the MVNO and IoT markets

YateHSS/HLR delivers failover cluster, load-balancing and scalability features inside a cluster at an affordable price, breaking the barriers to entry the market for MVNOs and IoT products manufacturers, leading to a positive ROI from an early stage of the business.

Ditch the Online Charging System

Post Syndicated from Yate Team original https://blog.yate.ro/2016/05/30/ditch-the-online-charging-system/

YateUCN removes the need for an Online Charging System for new LTE operators by providing a minimum Guaranteed Bit Rate (GBR) for all subscribers. In a typical mobile network, the Online Charging System (OCS) sets a maximum allowed bit rate based on available credit to prevent high demand users from congesting the network. The OCS […]

Guaranteed Bit Rate per UE with YateUCN

Post Syndicated from Yate Team original https://blog.yate.ro/2016/05/30/guaranteed-bit-rate-per-ue-with-yateucn/

A minimum Guaranteed Bit Rate for the default bearer of an UE may sound unusual, but YateUCN is able to do just that. Through its MME/PGW components, YateUCN allows operators to set the Guaranteed Bit Rate, therefore the bandwidth can be divided fairly to the connected subscribers supported by the same eNodeB. This is beneficial […]

Busy 2016 for Yate SDMN products

Post Syndicated from Yate Team original http://blog.yate.ro/2016/01/21/busy-2016-for-yate-sdmn-products/

Stepping into 2016, we have exciting news. Through 2015 we continued to develop the GSM/GPRS SatSite base station, as well as our main core network products: the ​2G/2.5G/4G YateUCN core network and the ​2G/3G/4G YateHSS/HLR. We start 2016 with the release of the LTE SatSite Model 142, with software-selectable LTE or GSM/GPRS operation, generating 10-20 […]

YateUCN, the EPC cloud

Post Syndicated from Yate Team original http://blog.yate.ro/2015/11/19/yateucn-the-epc-cloud/

The YateUCN is an LTE EPC that unifies all the functions of a conventional LTE core network into a single server. A single YateUCN unit combines the MME, SGW, PGW, PCEF and PCRF functions. A pool of YateUCN servers provide seamless horizontal redundancy, scalability and load balancing in the LTE core network. The ​YateUCN also […]

YateUCN – the redundant MSC/VLR

Post Syndicated from Yate Team original http://blog.yate.ro/2015/11/10/yateucn-the-redundant-mscvlr/

Traditionally, the redundancy of the Mobile Switching Center / Visitor Location Register (MSC/VLR) is obtained through redundant dedicated hardware and software. The problem lies in the Abis + A interfaces (BSSAP protocol) which do not allow a base station to move easily to another MSC/VLR. To overcome this problem, we decided to use the SIP protocol (with […]

YateUCN – the solution for MVNO networks

Post Syndicated from Yate Team original http://blog.yate.ro/2015/11/02/yateucn-the-solution-for-mvno-networks/

With mobile consumers’ expectations on the rise, new business models proliferate. Mobile Virtual Network Operator solutions must differentiate to stay competitive and maximize their offerings. MVNOs wishing to offer subscribers high quality voice and/or data services can use YateUCN as a GMSC (voice), a GGSN (GPRS), or a PGW (LTE data). YateUCN supports billing integration […]

Modernizing GSM networks – an ever difficult feat

Post Syndicated from Yate Team original http://blog.yate.ro/2015/10/21/modernizing-gsm-networks-an-ever-difficult-feat/

GSM has turned 24 this year and throughout this time showed that it is invaluable for telephone calls and M2M applications. Many industry observers estimate that 2G will continue to be in use even after 3G is discontinued. But GSM networks are confronted with the difficult task of adapting to the new operating environments. The […]

Increasing the security of VoLTE with YateUCN

Post Syndicated from Yate Team original http://blog.yate.ro/2015/10/13/increasing-the-security-of-volte-with-yateucn/

The emergence of VoLTE-capable devices is raising new security concerns for mobile network operators, as existing IMS deployments expose vulnerabilities in VoLTE handsets to other devices in the network. YateUCN unified core network brings a solution to these concerns by isolating SIP and RTP call legs between handsets. LTE uses an IMS network to deliver […]

GSM and LTE, 2 technologies in 1 base station

Post Syndicated from Yate Team original http://blog.yate.ro/2015/10/06/gsm-and-lte-2-technologies-in-1-base-station/

LTE for bandwidth and GSM for voice are a match made in heaven for subscribers. The roll-out however, not so much. Running them both from the same radio equipment (BTS) can be the answer. SatSite can run both YateBTS (GSM) and YateENB (LTE) at the same time, in the same spectrum, using the same radio […]

A forecast on the evolution of radio access networks

Post Syndicated from Yate Team original http://blog.yate.ro/2015/09/22/a-forecast-on-the-evolution-of-radio-access-networks/

This month we participated at an active antenna workshop in Warsaw. The event was well attended by many RAN managers, strategists and planners from various mobile operators around the world. There were also a large number of radio head and eNodeB, antenna, semiconductors and materials and test equipment vendors. Crowded towers There was a lot […]

SDN and beyond

Post Syndicated from Yate Team original http://blog.yate.ro/2015/09/15/sdn-and-beyond/

Software-defined networking (SDN) and network function virtualization (NFV) are new approaches to designing and operating mobile networks, granting operators better management possibilities and better use of the network capabilities. NFV represents the virtualization of network nodes roles, which culminates in separate software implementations performing the functions typically executed by hardware components. At the other end, […]
