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.

Identifying The Hallway Whistler

Post Syndicated from Alex Bate original https://www.raspberrypi.org/blog/identifying-hallway-whistler/

Becky Stern suffers from that same condition that many of us apartment dwellers are affected by: a curiosity about who is making noise outside the door.

Living within a large New York City apartment, Becky wanted to be able to see out of her peep hole without having to leave her desk. After all, the constant comings and goings of any shared property, though expected, can often be distracting.

(And seriously, whoever keeps slamming their door in my apartment block at 4am WILL suffer my wrath!)

So she decided to use a motion detector to trigger a Pi camera at her door. The camera would then stream live video back to a monitor within her apartment: a wireless peep hole, allowing her the freedom to be productive without having her eye to the door.

Peep Hole Cam

Becky used a Pi Zero for the project and took to the internet to educate herself on how to code a live streaming camera with motion detection. Tony D’s Cloud Cam tutorial gave her everything she needed to get the project working… and a handful of magnets, plus an old makeup bag, finished off the job.

Along with live streaming, the camera could be set up to take and upload photos and video to a cloud server; a handy tool to aid in home security. Taking the project further afield, she could allow remote access to the camera, allowing her to view the hallway while away from home. Did the delivery man leave your expected package? Which of the neighbours kids is the one trailing mud across the carpet?

And seriously… who keeps whistling every time they come home?!

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 […]

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 […]

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, […]
