Interworking between existing 2G/3G Networks and 4G/LTE Networks is mandatory. Service Providers are keen to maximise their Mobile reach by enabling services between LTE and existing 2G/3G Networks. For smaller Operators and MVNOs, it is often a big hurdle. There is a high cost involved for upgrading the existing Network equipment (HLR) with a long time migration period to upgrade the HLR.
Introduction of a Protocol Interworking Gateway between the new 4G/LTE technology and the existing legacy HLR. This Gateway will act as a Diameter host for the 4G/LTE Network and as a SS7/MAP client for the legacy HLR. The Interworking function will work as a black box and will execute the conversion automatically according to the specifications.
Immediate availability of complete MAP-Diameter Interworking function
Our solution is available as a built-in App which applies Interworking in line with the specifications next to the possibility to manipulate the converted messages as expected.
Never a long and risky project
As there is no need to upgrade or install a new HLR/HSS, we will avoid long and expensive projects. The Interworking function can be installed as a dedicated Front-HSS, avoiding migration.
Support for Pre-Release 8 HLR
A unique feature is available that creates KASME security vector information ('KASME derivation function'), enabling connectivity with Pre-Release 8 HLRs.
Future proof with an extendable approach
New interfaces (e.g. various Diameter applications, RADIUS, XML/HTTP, SOAP, REST, LDAP, ENUM, SS7 etc.) can be used for other Interworking functions to convert any message between each of the available interfaces.
Immediate availability to enable 4G/LTE on legacy HLR
Full support for 3GPP 29.205 and Pre-Release 8 HLR
