Over the past 25 years, cellular networks have gone through several evolutions, from 1G to 2G, 3G and then LTE. Now we are on the forefront of LTE-A, LTE-A Pro and soon 5G. Arguably, the largest disruption is to come from IoT, the Internet of Things. Many new technologies are being developed to provide low-cost connectivity for IoT devices. There are Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) technologies like NB-IoT, LTE Cat-M1/M2, and new 3GPP standards like Power Saving Mode (PSM), extended DRX cycles (eDRX) and Extended Access Barring (EAB), to name just a few.
Our company vision:
To develop products and solutions that help fulfill the IoT and 5G visions of billions of connected devices over cellular networks in a cost effective manner, and to generate new revenue opportunities for Mobile Network Operators and Mobile Virtual Network Operators.
Solutions for the Operator. Today’s MNOs and MVNOs are faced with multiple challenges. Revenue for connectivity is under price pressure – what other sources of revenue can be realized? How can IoT and 5G network evolutions be implemented cost-effectively? How can new technology be used, so it is not necessary to use expensive overprovisioning to avoid congestion? How can new services be efficiently managed and controlled? We address these issues with our Solutions, and the solutions are available using our products.
Products. Our Service Core is a carrier-class product that provides an integrated solution as an entry point for services from the Operator, and can be deployed in an Operator’s virtualization system or in a 3rd party cloud service. Our SCEF product includes many DN innovations beyond just a 3GPP SCEF. We also offer our DN Platform as a base for other vendors to produce network nodes, in particular the control-plane nodes for 5G. Refer to our Products for details.
