Barcelona, Spain, February 28, 2013]: Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology solutions provider, today launched a next-generation SingleEPC solution at the 2013 Mobile World Congress (MWC). The solution utilizes ultra-broadband, 6-mode atom-level convergence and a Multi-Service Engine to optimize mobile broadband (MBB) service experience enabling a smooth evolution to a telecom cloud.
The next-generation SingleEPC solution offers ultra-broadband advantages and is the only solution featuring 6-mode atom-level convergence to support a convergent PS core for multiple radio access modes, including GPRS, UMTS, LTE-FDD, LTE-TDD, CDMA and WiFi. The solution supports the dynamic implementation of traffic models for 6-mode access technologies and optimizes PS core network resources.
The next-generation SingleEPC solution enables 64 times more signaling overload control than the previous generation. The most important innovation the solution is the Multi-Service Engine, the world’s first innovation engine for web and video acceleration optimization which is integrated directly into the PS core for greater flexibility of deployment. The solution also provides an LTE voice solution that is set to be commercialized this year. Huawei’s LTE voice solution provides a superior voice experience with low setup latency, clear HD voice quality, and highly reliable voice connections.
Huawei’s SingleEPC solution provides operators with a number of technical advantages which is why so many leading operators have deployed it. For instance, during the Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca in Saudi Arabia, PS traffic has been shown to increase 24 times more than the average daily traffic, forcing a local Saudi operator to migrate users from other vendor’s PS core onto Huawei’s SingleEPC solution to maintain seamless continuity of data services. That operator has successfully utilized Huawei’s SingleEPC solution for eight consecutive years and SingleEPC is quickly becoming the go-to solution of every global operator’s long-term strategy.
SingleEPC was awarded “Best LTE Core Network Element” at the 2012 LTE World Summit. Over eight consecutive quarters, Huawei has made more PS shipments than any other vendor.
