Starent is working with Kapsch CarrierCom, Austria for the solution deployment.

mag is a leading mobile service provider in Central and Eastern Europe. The group connects around 18 million mobile customers in eight countries. mobilkom austria and Vipnet from Croatia will deploy the Starent solution in 2009. Other mobilkom austria group members will follow in the coming years.

mag will initially use Starent’s GGSN solution on the ST40 multimedia core platform to enable high-speed multimedia services such as video and Internet on its 3G/UMTS networks. The ability to easily migrate the Starent multimedia core platform to the 4G/LTE Evolved Packet Core (EPC) was a key element in the selection decision by mag.
