iCore 3G GSN - UMTS Packet Core
Operators are enjoying increases in demand and ARPU from a new wave of multimedia devices and applications. They’re also struggling to ensure that their networks are keeping pace with subscribers’ requirements for more, and smarter, bandwidth. Tecore’s all-IP 3G GPRS Support Node (GSN) provides a powerful, scalable and flexible packet core for UMTS services. The 3G GSN can be deployed as a Serving GPRS Support Node (SGSN), Gateway GPRS Support Node (GGSN) or both. As with all Tecore products, the 3G GSN is fully compliant with the applicable 3GPP standards to be interoperable with other vendors’ equipment, is available on a standalone basis on a range of carrier-grade hardware platforms, and can also be integrated as a blade in a complete iCore network system , Tecore’s multi-technology platform capable of evolution to 4G via software upgrades.
The 3G GSN can be deployed on a standalone basis, on a carrier-grade platform, as part of a macro 3G network. It can also be integrated into a complete, multi-technology iCore network from Tecore, allowing operators to reap revenues from 2G services while fulfilling demand for next-generation devices and applications.
Rural and Remote Systems
The challenge facing many operators today is how to provide service to rural and remote areas in an economic fashion while maintaining the same services as their main network. For these scenarios, Tecore offers the Rural Village System (RVS). The RVS turns remote build-outs that are traditional loss leaders to revenue potential. The RVS is a flexible network solution for distributed deployments in multiple wireless technologies and includes the iCore network elements and any combination of RAN elements (2G GSM or CDMA, and 3G UMTS) to meet the operator’s needs. Targeted at scenarios for hundreds to several thousand subscribers, the RVS provides a compliant solution that extends the network to previously unreachable (technically or economically) locations.
Government / Military Systems
The 3G GSN is ideal for tactical and first responder systems where the latest communication technologies, streamlined operation and mission-critical security features are essential. A complete, multi-technology voice and data-capable mobile network contained in a single ruggedized case can be operational in one hour. With scalability based on standalone or integrated operations, this system is ideal for environments ranging from embassies to the battlefield.
