3G and 4G Solutions

Acme Packet provides solutions to address these challenges spanning access, core, roaming and interconnect aspects of mobile service provider networks.

 

In this new decade, mobile service providers are in the early stages of a service delivery evolution encompassing both new communication services and new ways to deliver them. To goal of maximizing revenues while reducing costs is driving mobile service providers to:

 

  • Consolidate networks

  • Adopt next generation technologies

  • Innovative with new services

  • Offload legacy networks

 

Sesstion Initiation Protocol (SIP), Diameter and IP transport are the next generation technologies that are at the heart of this transition, enabling both the replacement of legacy voice and messaging services and the creation of new forms of communication.

 

SIP is a proven technology that has been transforming fixed line networks since the turn of the century. Diameter is the chosen IP signaling protocol to enable policy exchange within and between all IP Networks. Now, mobile service providers are turning to SIP and IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) architectures to benefit today and prepare for the future.

 

As 3G and 4G radio technologies increase broadband speeds, mobile service providers need to revamp their services portfolio to offset average revenue per user (ARPU) pressure and gain share in an increasingly complex and competitive marketplace. By tapping into SIP and IP, mobile service providers can realize both enhanced services and reduced costs. This can help mitigate threats from over the top providers as they aim to make service a "dumb pipe" for delivering the riches of the internet.

 

Mobile service providers are now embarking on a multi-faceted migration involving:

 

  • SIP or IMS service networks

  • Integration of WiFi access and femtocells for fixed mobile convergence (FMC)

  • Deployment of 3G and 4G broadband RANs

  • Consolidation of all services on a single IP backbone transport network

 

As mobile service providers navigate this migration they face many challenges in the delivery of these new IP voice, video and data services. These challenges are technical realities of IP networks and span the areas of:

 

  • Security

  • Service reach maximization

  • Service level agreement (SLA) assurance

  • Regulatory compliance

  • Cost and revenue management
