The Sonata EPC is a flexible core network solution for service provides to deploy 4G LTE mobile, fixed or private networks. It is a software package based solution capable of providing the following functions, individually or bundled: the Mobile Management Entity (MME), Serving Gateway (S-GW), Packet Data Network Gateway (PDN-GW), Home Subscriber Server (HSS) and Policy Control Rules Function (PCRF).
The Sonata EPC is suitable for scalable deployment of 4G LTE networks and leverages commercial computing platforms to address a network operator’s particular traffic size and growth requirements. Commercial mobile networks can be deployed on high capacity computing platforms, while smaller private or remote broadband networks can be supported by enterprise server systems or even small form factor server appliances.
The Sonata EPC is 5G ready and offers a smooth migration to support 5G network architecture via NSA Option 3. Using its 3GPP standards based interfaces, the Sonata EPC can be integrated with VoLTE/IMS infrastructure to support VoLTE services or connected to 3rd party billing/OCS solutions.
As a software based solution, it can also be deployed with Star Solutions network-in-box products enabling all-in-one stand-alone networks to be easily deployed.
