HP Manages Subs on HetNets
PALO ALTO, Calif. -- HP Enterprise Services today announced new solutions that enable communication service providers (CSPs) to streamline the transition to long-term evolution (LTE) networks and embrace a diversity of mobile access networks with a single subscriber management solution. As CSPs continue migrating to LTE networks, they are tasked with simultaneously managing a wide range of legacy networks accessed by subscribers during the transition. CSPs must be able to easily authenticate subscriber identity and service rights across these heterogeneous networks without interrupting service to subscribers. The new HP Integrated Home Subscriber Servers (I-HSS) bridges 2G, 3G, 4G, WiFi and Internet Protocol Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) networks to enable CSPs to centrally manage subscribers’ profiles, regardless of the network to which they are connected. By having a single application and real-time synchronized user data repository, CSPs can achieve higher reliability for this mission-critical solution while creating a secured evolution path.
