Airspan Introduces AirCore 4G LTE Evolved Packet Core (EPC) Solution
BARCELONA, SPAIN, Feb 29, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS - Airspan Networks Inc., a leading provider
of 4G broadband wireless access networks, introduced today AirCore,
their LTE EPC solution, to assist carriers in controlling customer
access to the LTE network as well as manage the data flow, mobility
and service quality.
AirCore is a comprehensive Evolved Packet Core (EPC) solution
consisting of all core elements including Mobility Management Entity
(MME), Serving Gateway (SGW), PDN Gateway (PGW), Home Subscriber
Server (HSS), and Policy and Charging Rules Function (PCRF). All
these elements work together in a single platform to provide carriers
'network-in-a-box' functionality for an easy to manage network.
The AirCore EPC supports lower-latency, higher-throughput and
lower-cost voice and data services. AirCore enables operators to
determine the treatment of service IP packets in line with their
technical and commercial goals. This is essential to be able to
monetize and profit from the expense of mobile broadband networks, as
well as guarantee subscribers the connectivity they require for an
enjoyable user experience.
AirCore accompanies Airspan's LTE radio access network (RAN) base
station solutions (pico, micro and macro) to offer network operators
a comprehensive LTE product portfolio to ensure that the right
combination of products can be deployed to get the right coverage,
capacity and services based on their particular data traffic needs,
topographies and business plans. AirCore can support smaller
footprints and then be easily scaled to support larger networks as
the user base grows.
