CHICAGO -- WiChorus, the Smart 4G Packet Core provider, unveiled a solution that enables mobile operators to build their 3G HSPA packet core networks with a 4G platform and provides a future-proof software upgrade path to LTE Evolved Packet Core (EPC). The exponential growth of mobile broadband data is changing the function and performance requirements of the mobile packet core for HSPA and HSPA+ networks, as well as deployment models. By leveraging its high-performance 4G packet core platform, WiChorus is addressing these new needs and enables support for GGSN, LTE PDN Gateway and Serving Gateway network functions. The mobile operators coping with an unprecedented rise of Internet traffic and adopting or enhancing HSPA networks can now future-proof their networks for LTE, with the un-matched performance and capacity of SmartCore platforms. The WiChorus HSPA GGSN is currently in trials with mobile operators.

“Mobile broadband operators are beginning to plan their initial LTE deployments in the near-term. At the same time, however, they are dealing with incredible data growth on their current 3G networks,” noted Peter Jarich, Service Director with Current Analysis. “Platforms supporting 4G networks along with the challenges of today’s 3GPP networks – such as WiChorus SmartCore – offer a compelling packet core solution promising investment protection going forward and obviating the need for hardware replacement.”
