Ericsson to strengthen SSR 8000 platform

Telecom Lead @ Mobile World Congress 2013: Ericsson is set to strengthen its SSR 8000 family platform.

As part of upgrading the SSR 8000 family platform, Ericsson will add Service-Aware Support Node (SASN), which provides policy control solutions to ensure better quality experience for users, and Wi-Fi Gateway that integrates Wi-Fi and mobile-broadband networks for a seamless user experience when switching between access types

The two new applications will be commercially available during the second half of 2013.

Telecom operators will benefit as the addition of new applications to the Ericsson SSR 8000 family platform saves both Capex and Opex, Ericsson said in a statement.

Ericsson Service-Aware Support Node, a component in the company’s policy control solution Service-Aware Charging and Control, can be used to categorize different types of traffic to ensure better user experience while optimizing the use of network resources.

Ericsson’s Wi-Fi Gateway will support network-controlled, clientless solution for dynamic traffic steering between cellular and Wi-Fi. This capability is critical to providing superior performance and a seamless mobile-broadband user experience across Wi-Fi and licensed bands while optimizing heterogeneous-network resources.
