With the introduction of new technologies into the network a lot of complexity has been added to the existing network architectures. Many carriers are moving to an Evolved Packet Core (EPC) and a 4G technology to simplify the architecture. This requires the integration of the existing network assets with the EPC. Carriers are also moving to a VoLTE technology to carry voice on their LTE data only assets. This requires the introduction of IMS into the network.
Scarlet Technologies utilizes best practices in project management, and experienced engineers, to help deliver integration projects on time and within budget. We have engineers who are engaged in current and past integration projects of the EPC, IMS, as well as VoLTE.
Next generation Evolved Packet Core (EPC) networks are being designed to support new value-added services and applications either enabled or optimized by the mobile operator. With the massive traffic growth from SmartPhones and other mobile devices, the multimedia packet core network has become critical to providing a superior user experience and monetizing these new services and applications.
EPC Design considerations and service modules undertaken by Scarlet Technologies include:
- An open evolved packet core (EPC) architecture migration plan
- Network optimization
- Control plane scalability and signaling
- Session-state and subscriber management
- Policy and charging control
- Voice-grade reliability
- Reporting, monitoring, accounting and charging
Self-Optimizing Networks (SON) enable mobile carriers to manage and optimize their networks automatically, utilizing real-time network feedback. Using this real-time data from the network allows the carrier to optimize spectrum utilization, alter coverage in real time and share capacity where and when it is needed enhancing the end user experience.
Scarlet Technologies has the expertise to help your company utilize this technology to bring to bear the benefits for your company and ultimately your customer.
