Rural and Remote Communications - Rural Village System
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. 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.
The Rural Village System from Tecore Networks provides the next generation of distributed switching technology. As the accordion of technology once again expands from first generation softswitching to localized control, the RVS implements the full scope of compliant protocols and processing for next generation localized control and processing.
Offered as an alternate to a remote media gateway reliant on centralized control hundreds of miles away, the RVS system provides a targeted solution allowing localized switching and control while maintaining operations as a cohesive part of the operator infrastructure. The RVS is scalable from hundreds of subscribers to several thousand. The solution is compliant with both the user side equipment (allowing operators to deploy commonly available handset technology) as well as connect to the local PSTN facilities, and roaming partners. Thus it is an integrated part of the network. Reach back connectivity to other networks is supported through a centralized gateway where common access to PSTN and roaming interconnectivity can be provided.
In remote installations, access to local services is driven greatly by voice services. Typical to many installations, wireline infrastructure has been outfitted and deployed previous to the arrival of wireless services.
In contrast, access to packet data and internet based services is typically driven greatly by the backhaul mechanism in place. Since the interconnect pipe is the limiting factor and the destination of the data requests typically lies elsewhere from the local village, the centralization of packet data services is the typical architecture model used in these types of installations.
In any remote installation, the situation and circumstances of connectivity and available facilities can vary greatly. A broad scope of protocols, interfaces, scalability and technology must be supported from a common platform to provide a workable solution that adapts to the surroundings. Again the RVS delivers. Offering a full scope of both IP and TDM based alternatives for signaling as well as bearer traffic, the platform provides the capability to connect with the available technology. While the RVS implements a distributed call processing model, the management and overall control of the network is maintained from a central location via an IP connection to the Network Operations Center (NOC). Call detail records and other system metrics (generated locally on the RVS) are collected at a central repository and processed as part of the overall network data.For further information, request a White Paper, or contact us at email@example.com.
