Polaris, Telum Team on EPC, Small Cells for 4G
SAN JOSE -- Polaris Networks, a leading provider of LTE EPC to Public Safety, Rural Operators and Defence, and Telum, a Russian leader in LTE small cell solutions, today announced successful completion of inter-operability tests between Polaris’ LTE Packet Core, NetEPC and Telum’s LTE Ranberry picocell line.
The successful completion of the IOT between the two products now enables both the companies to offer a complete LTE Solution, comprising of the RAN and the EPC, to Mobile Network Operators (MNO’s) , System Integrators, and Vertical Markets (Government, Utilities, Transportation, Mining, Public Safety and Defence).
The Polaris NetEPCT is a compact EPC-in-a-box solution (EPC Lite) which combines all the key elements of the 3GPP defined Evolved Packet Core – the MME, the SGW and the PGW along with the HSS, PCRF, OCS and OFCS into a single platform. NetEPC solution’s flexible and scalable architecture makes it a good fit for wide variety of networks, both commercial and private. NetEPC is available on various COTS hardware platforms, ranging from single-board computers (SBC) to high availability MicroTCA/ATCA platforms, and can thereby meets diverse requirements with respect to portability, scalability, redundancy for different kind of networks.
Telum’s RanberryTM small cell products provide full featured 3GPP LTE base station in extremely compact integrated form factor. RanberryTM small cell solution is unique in its ability to provide high-grade radio access network performance with minimum radio planning and human intervention. Telum self-organizing network (SON) controller implements patent-pending self-organization algorithms including ANR, PCI selection, ICIC, MRO, MLB resulting in substantial cell average and cell edge throughput improvement in large, dense and mobile small cell deployments. Equipped with advanced scheduler, RRM and SON, Telum brings unmatched quality of service level increasing customer's satisfaction and operator's revenues.
