Full Evolved Packet Core (EPC)

Our entirely standards-based LTE solution provides all of the features and functionality of the large network equipment providers but in compact modular form.

With data speeds of up to ten times faster than regular 3G, the LTEnet EPC scales to gigabit throughput to enable the highest speed access to information within the local network to be streamed, pushed or pulled down to LTE devices.

At the simplest level, the software installs as a single lightweight package requiring no specialised configuration. The software’s unique portability lends itself to virtualisation, with the ability to be installed on virtually any quad-core small board computer, laptop, or femtocell and even scales up to large distributed networks for mobile network operators.

Collapsed Core Network

Eliminate the traditional problem of high capacity backhaul and centralized core requirements by providing the flexibility of migrating core network functionality throughout the network, whether it be regional, local or even in the cloud. With a collapsed modular network, integration to local data services whilst having the option to maintain a link to mobile operator services, drives down operational costs and opens up new markets.

Architecture

Each module of the SiRRAN EPC is uniquely scalable allowing for flexible deployment where redundancy and capacity are required; making LTEnet the credible choice for seamless MNO and MVNO solutions.

MME (Mobility Management Entity)

The MME is the main control node for the LTE access-network. Through the Non Access Stratum (NAS) protocol, the MME is responsible for authenticating, tracking and paging procedures, generation and allocation of temporary identities to User Equipment (UE), bearer activation/deactivation process and for choosing the Serving Gateway (SGW) for a UE during the initial attach procedure.

The MME is the termination point in the network for ciphering/integrity protection for NAS signalling and handles the security key management.

PGW (Packet Data Node Gateway)

The PGW provides a termination point for tunnelled user data from a UE to an external IP data network. A PGW is typically responsible for allocating IP addresses to UE.

SGW (Serving Gateway)

The SGW is a data gateway for user data packets. The SGW routes encapsulated IP data to a PGW to access an IP network. Responsibilities of the SGW include setting up and removing bearer routes on MME request, forwarding user data and acting as an anchor for Intra E-UTRAN handover.

The SGW manages data resources by terminating the down-link data path to idle UE’s and triggering paging procedures when down-link data arrives.

HSS (Home Subscriber Server)

The HSS is a central database that contains subscriber account information. Functions of the HSS include: mobility management, call and session establishment support, user authentication and access authorization.

EPC-UI (Evolved Packet Core User Interface)

The EPC-UI is a web based application which gives the operator the ability to configure the LTE sub-system parameters, view their statuses and perform operations on each.

The main function of the EPC-UI is to provide provision and management of subscribers and to configure their access and priority profiles.

High-Speed Data

With data speeds of up to ten times faster than regular 3G, the LTEnet EPC scales to gigabit throughput to enable the highest speed access to information within the local network to be streamed, pushed or pulled down to LTE devices.

Network Flexibility

Eliminate the traditional problem of high capacity backhaul and centralized core requirements by bringing core network functionality to the application and end customer.

User Interface

SiRRAN provides the most robust and easy to use configuration interface for LTE on the market today. The entire system is configurable via an easy to use web interface, removing the need to learn or use a command line

Standard with the SiRRAN interface comes a real-time graphical data and analytics engine on a per network / subscriber basis, providing a real-time view of the individual and network performance without the need to post process any data via a third party application.
