Mavenir Systems is enabling seamless mobility between LTE and Wi-Fi with the release of its Evolved Packet Data Gateway (News - Alert) (ePDG) offering.
The ePDG provides a secure connection to the Evolved Packet Core (EPC) network for subscribers using Wi-Fi.
Subscribers leverage Mavenir's ePDG to maintain constant access to high-speed data and voice services.
Access to data and voice services is maintained when users are in LTE (News - Alert) coverage areas or using Wi-Fi at public hotspots.
This means a person can enjoy uninterrupted conversation when the device switches from LTE to Wi-Fi access.
Mavenir’s newly launched ePDG is part of the company’s IMS converged voice solution designed for mobile operators who use it for both Voice over Wi-Fi (VoWi-Fi) and Voice over LTE (VoLTE).
"Globally, operators are trying to manage mobile subscribers' demand for ubiquitous service access while dealing with tremendous surge in mobile data usage," said Pardeep Kohli, Mavenir's president and CEO. "We believe ePDG and converged access to IMS are logical extensions of VoWi-Fi, as mobility is becoming a key differentiator for operators."
Mavenir Systems (News - Alert) provides software-based networking solutions that enable mobile service providers to deliver next generation services over 4G LTE networks.
The company provides a comprehensive converged voice solution comprising the Telephony Application Server (TAS), Call Session Control Function (CSCF), and ePDG that is optionally integrated with Mavenir's Packet Gateway (PGW) and Session Border Controller (SBC).
Mavenir Systems was in news earlier this year when its mOne software platform was chosen by mobile service providers to introduce the industry’s first live network deployment of VoLTE, as well as the industry’s first live deployment of next-generation Rich Communication Services (RCS) 5.0 .
The company deployed its Home Subscriber Server-Front End system at Croatian telecommunications company T-Hrvatski Telekom (T-HT).
