NetNumber Expands Private LTE Network Solution Ecosystem with SiRRAN LTEnet
Smallest Form Factor Private LTE Network Live at MWC18
We are proud to announce collaboration with NetNumber, the leading provider of Centralised Signalling and Routing Control (CSRC) solutions to the global communications industry. Last year, NetNumber announced its scalable, software-based Private LTE network infrastructure delivered via the NetNumber TITAN CSRC platform and designed to integrate with radio and packet core solutions from ecosystem vendors. Today, NetNumber is integrating with the SiRRAN LTE Evolved Packet Core to enable the highest speed access to information within the local network to be streamed, pushed or pulled down to LTE devices.
“The combination of NetNumber’s TITAN architecture and our LTE EPC heralds a new generation of private LTE networking at the edge with seamless global carrier core capabilities to support it,” said Dean Parsons, CEO of SiRRAN Communications. “NetNumber’s choice of SiRRAN is further testament to the field proven reliability and resilience of SiRRAN’s evolved packet cores, and we look forward to a strong partnership moving forward.”
NetNumber TITAN provides a common, virtualised infrastructure for all signalling control, routing policy enforcement and subscriber database services in the network. The TITAN platform was designed as a distributed architecture which inherently complements most Private LTE network deployments that have many remote edge locations. The NetNumber HSS application on the TITAN platform, for example, permits a centralised, automated, subscriber provisioning database that is efficiently replicated to edge locations in real time or on demand supporting limited uplink bandwidth scenarios. At the same time, TITAN flexibly scales supporting edge locations with as little as twenty subscribers to large locations with thousands of subscribers. The SiRRAN collaboration now enables this to be done seamlessly in private networks.
The NetNumber TITAN platform also supports autonomous edge operation without the need for an active uplink to maintain non-disruptive local operations. TITAN provides the lowest Capex entry point per subscriber for Private LTE networks across various markets—from enterprises for legacy VoIP replacement and WiFi augmentation to public safety and transportation for LMR enhancement and replacement—while enabling a simple and low-cost operational model.
“The adoption of Private LTE networks has expanded beyond public safety and defense organisations to enterprises of all types, driven by the need for alternative or to augment existing wireless capabilities,” said Steve Legge, general manager and senior vice president, NetNumber. “The NetNumber TITAN platform inherently enables small, scalable and secure LTE-based signalling networks—which open up new market opportunities for our customers. We are excited to partner with SiRRAN to combine our complementary capabilities that enable our customers to fully leverage our Private LTE network solutions.”
NetNumber will showcase their Private LTE demonstration at Mobile World Congress 2018 in Barcelona.
