 Summa Networks, the market specialist in Subscribers, Policy, Identity and Connectivity management solutions, has announced a new release of its NextGen HSS which allows carriers to manage their subscribers seamlessly between 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G networks.

Summa Networks NextGen HSS was launched as a solution which already included a fully featured LTE HSS, IMS HSS and HLR from a single software suite. The product has seen several evolutions during the years to even better fit the requirements of mobile operators, MVNOs, MVNEs and companies working in the IoT, M2M and automotive sector.

Summa Networks now offers a Converged and Extended Control Plane which includes not only an interoperable HLR, HSS and SDM software suite, but also other mobile core network elements such as AAA, PCRF and PCF.

S6t (connection to SCEF), S6m (connection to IWF), S6n (connection to AAA) for IoT MTC

S6c for SMS over IP

Improved architecture for scalability up to tenths of millions active subscribers

“These evolutions are possible thanks to the fact that our software was developed from scratch so we have full control of our product roadmap.

The product enhancements and added scalability confirm its suitability for operators of all sizes.”

Japan – NEC Expands Open Networks Portfolio with 18 New O-RAN Radios

NEC Corporation (NEC; TSE: 6701) has dramatically expanded its open RAN Radio Units (O-RUs) portfolio with the introduction of several new products and configurations. These 18 new Radio Units help NEC maintain its leadership position in the O-RU segment as ORAN deployments gain momentum globally. The new RU products complement NEC?s existing portfolio to help meet the demands of private and public mobile networks that will drive Open RAN initiatives forward this year.

These launches add new configurations (4T4R, 8T8R, 32T32R, 64T64R) to NEC?s industry-leading portfolio of massive MIMO radios. All the new configurations are built on modular platforms, allowing fast time to market and adaptation to customer-specific needs. For instance, the majority of the new RUs are available in 5G NR and 4G LTE with dual-band versions for the most popular band combinations. Network operators will benefit from several technological advancements, including natural convection cooling, high performance digital beamforming, small volume and weight and aggressive cost-efficiency.

Patrick Lopez, NEC’s global VP for product management 5G, commented, “NEC has been at the forefront of Open RAN and massive MIMO deployments at scale in commercial urban environments. These additions to our portfolio, featuring new configurations and bands, enable us to address the overall RAN market. This is a great advancement for NEC Open Networks, our radically open approach to deliver an end-to-end portfolio of products and services, within an open multivendor ecosystem, that allows operators to pick and choose options fitting their needs and strategic objectives.”

Operators around the globe are accelerating 5G deployments to enhance coverage and network capacity in a wide range of environments, including dense, urban areas with high-rises, urban locations with mid-rise structures, rural areas, broadband hot-spots and enterprises.

Customers are looking towards Open RAN as a game-changing alternative to the closed architecture of incumbent equipment suppliers. NEC has taken an active role in driving the need for Open RAN solutions, incorporating superior radio architecture design with cost and power efficiency and using state-of-the-art silicon and RF components to achieve a smaller form factor with modular design.

NEC will be presenting its industry leading NEC Open Networks at MWC Barcelona 2022, at Fira Gran Via, Hall 2 2F10
