Stoke Lands LTE Gig at DoCoMo
TOKYO and SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Net One Systems Co., Ltd. and Stoke, Inc. today announced that Stoke's mobile broadband gateway Stoke Session Exchange 3000 (SSX-3000) has been selected for NTT DOCOMO's network platform for LTE(*1) (Long Term Evolution) service.
Functional verification of the SSX-3000 as well as its proposal and sale to DOCOMO was handled by Net One Systems, Stoke's distributor in Japan. The SSX-3000, via Net One Systems, is already used as a network platform for DOCOMO's femtocell service.
In response to the rapid increase in mobile data traffic that has resulted from greater use of multimedia services in recent years, DOCOMO is building a new all-IP network infrastructure for LTE.
DOCOMO will deploy the SSX-3000 in this LTE network to aggregate eNodeB radio transmission base stations that support various mobile data such as voice, data, and video. The LTE network will enhance DOCOMO's ability to manage the growing volume of mobile broadband traffic on their RAN(*2) and backhaul(*3) infrastructure.
"We are extremely pleased to extend our relationship with DOCOMO for their LTE network with the adoption of SSX-3000," said Vikash Varma, President and CEO of Stoke. "The selection of our technology for their mobile data platform provides validation of the need for the innovative technology offered by Stoke."
