Following the latest trends of the telecommunications market like NFV or SDN, carriers are gradually moving to the Cloud. The need to allow a smooth transition from analogical to IP has inspired the founders of Summa Networks to develop their next generation Home Subscriber System. This software based HSS delivers significant feature and cost advantages over traditional products to both small and large service providers. Solution partner BroadForward, three-time GSMA nominee for Best Mobile Technology, provides the advanced Diameter routing and interworking technology incorporated in the NG HSS.
Javier Martin, CEO of Summa Networks explains: “Operators are facing the typical barriers of traditional HSS products. Summa provides an excellent alternative. Our combined HSS-HLR provides a cloud-ready solution that is suitable for service providers of all sizes. It delivers everything service providers need to scale and manage subscriber profiles across technologies in a cost-effective manner.”
Summa Networks’ NextGen HSS offers the most complete package of features, including:
- LTE HSS, IMS HSS and HLR in a single piece of software
- Technology based on carrier-grade open standard Jain-SLEE
- Cloud deployable and NFV/SDN ready, multi-tenancy enabled
- Software that evolves with the new industry standards and protocols
Summa Networks is a dedicated development company that focuses on research and delivery of state-of-the-art software telecom products. They rely on their technology partner BroadForward to integrate their solution on the operators’ side.
“The NG HSS delivers a solution that has a much better fit with the demands of modern networks. The solution we bring to the market with Summa is the accumulation of a highly scalable virtualized Next Generation subscriber management platform with the world’s best Diameter routing and interworking product.” says Taco Schoute, CEO of BroadForward.
Summa Networks will introduce its NextGen HSS at the Mobile World Congress, 22-25 February, in Barcelona, at its booth in the Spanish Pavillion in Congress Square, Stand CS60.
