After 2G and 3G, Long Term Evolution (LTE (News - Alert)) has become the most comprehensive versatile technology to deliver Internet service to wireless devices over IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS).
In order to offer secure and reliable 4G LTE multimedia communication services, MetroPCS, a wireless communications service provider, has deployed Acme Packet's (News - Alert) Net-Net Session Director to support the world's first commercially available Voice over LTE (VoLTE) service launched in August 2012, as well as MetroPCS' recent launch of Rich Communication Services (RCS).
Acme Packet is the company in session delivery networks. This Net-Net Session Director offers extensive SIP normalization, mediation, and interworking functions that enable operators to efficiently integrate network elements supplied by multiple vendors.
"A true innovator, MetroPCS is the first service provider in the world to deploy a commercial VoLTE service and the first 4G LTE service provider in the world to offer RCS, based on the GSMA (News - Alert) RCS 5.0 standard and licensed joyn brand," said Tim Ziemer, vice president of North America and Asia Pacific Japan sales, Acme Packet, in a statement. "Our Net-Net Session Director helps MetroPCS reap all the benefits of VoLTE and RCS without compromising security or service quality."
Acme Packet's extensible Net-Net Session Director solution also supports your business growth by managing IMS services that includes VoLTE, RCS, and Voice over Wi-Fi - in a single platform, with unified administration. The Acme Packet Net-Net Session Director solution protects and controls SIP sessions between the MetroPCS service core and LTE endpoints.
The Net-Net Session Director offers security, capabilities and admission control features that protect against denial-of-service threats and non-malicious overloads. Additionally, the product also provides load balancing and quality of service policy management features that allow operators to ensure high service quality.
