Using network infrastructure equipment from Star Solutions, Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) around the world can cost-effectively extend their mobile coverage to rural areas. Often these areas have little or no infrastructure in place to support any telecom equipment and conventional rural connectivity solutions are inefficient and/or impractical.
To enable MNO’s to deploy mobile network services in these challenging areas, we leverage innovative technology and scaleable product platforms and solutions. We can take advantage of distributed network architecture to enable flexible deployment options and make cost-effective use of any terrestrial or satellite backhaul options.
Flexible deployment capabilities include:
- Remote Gateway Deployments – Using local gateways to deploy a distributed core network enables wireless broadband network operators to offload data traffic at the edge of the network and at multiple spots.
- “All-in-One” or Remote Core – This configuration enables RAN products to be quickly deployed with local services enabled even when backhaul connectivity might not be available or is often disrupted.
- Remote MSC Survivability – In a distributed network with several sites utilizing satellite backhaul, in the event of satellite service disruption, local mobile service is still maintained at the remote site.
Key Products to consider:
LTE broadband network operators are deploying data networks using Star Solutions’ 4G EPC core network platform, the Sonata EPC. The solution is very scaleable enabling network operators of all sizes and capacities to take advantage of LTE technology.
By supporting 3GPP standards based interfaces, network operators can deploy solutions with multiple eNodeB vendors and connect with best-in-class service enabling platforms like OCS, PCRF and post-paid billing systems.
