The edge – it’s where services are delivered and performance is judged – and where service providers like you need economical and simple solutions that are performance-driven and varied. Apex, our multi‑standard small cell and Axyom, our ultra‑broadband edge platform are designed to elegantly meet these challenges. Architected to distribute robust network functions where needed, our products create new revenue streams for you, while keeping costs in check.
Since you’ve invested heavily to build your subscriber base, managing that investment through continued technology advances is crucial to your ongoing success. Whether your network serves millions of metro subscribers or the most remote locations around the globe, our expert Services team can help evolve your mobile network and keep it running at peak performance. You can rely on us to enhance your network with vision, skill and efficiency.
Casa Systems provides a range of mobile access solutions to help service providers meet demands today and prepare their networks for 5G. Casa’s end‑to‑end mobile access solutions support 3G and 4G cellular as well as Wi‑Fi, LTE‑A, 3.5GHz CBRS and Multefire access. A range of indoor and outdoor small cells provide not only the coverage and capacity service providers need, but also location and presence insights which can be used toward monetization. Small cell deployment and management is made simpler and more efficient with Casa’s Axyom Small Cell Manager, which includes H(e)MS, Hybrid SON, and other key management tools that facilitate integration with existing networks and increase RAN utilization.
Ultra-broadband services will require networks that are ultra-fast, ultra-dense, ultra-low latency and ultra-secure. But today’s solutions aren’t always easy to optimize across all those dimensions. Strong security can reduce throughput speeds. Densification can introduce security risks. And applications requiring low latency can impact core network performance.
Our ultra-broadband edge platform – Axyom – is designed to address all these challenges. Axyom delivers multiple virtual mobile network functions with a new approach to NFV, enabling best-in-class performance. Our end-to-end virtualization solution addresses the inefficiencies of other solutions via a modular architecture, unique pipeline processing and intelligent control. Deployable on premise, at the network edge or at a centralized location, Axyom’s flexible architecture lets users place network functions where they make the most sense.
Our SeGW (security gateway) enables highly secure access for subscribers roaming between trusted and untrusted networks, while providing extreme density and performance. Capable of supporting millions of IPSec tunnels on a 1RU platform, our solution also scales control plane and data plane functions independently, allowing rapid adaptation to changes in bandwidth and session requirements. Engineered to push the boundaries of what’s possible, our SeGW delivers best‑in‑class number of tunnels per RU, tunnel setup rates, IPSec throughput and performance per watt.
Our highly scalable small cell manager implements H(e)MS (Home Node B / Home eNode B Management System) functionality, including auto-configuration through TR-069 standards. Accessible through a user‑friendly GUI, our H(e)MS provides full access to small cell base stations, and supports TR‑181 and TR‑196 as specified by 3GPP. Our HeMS is a powerful solution for the management of small cell networks, improving performance and reducing network operations complexity.
Our Trusted Wireless Access Gateway (TWAG) enables service providers to manage millions of Wi-Fi-enabled devices with control over the user experience, along with best‑in‑class performance that allows you to offload traffic, not customers. TWAG is a highly reliable carrier-grade solution that lets you provide IP access from trusted non-3GPP access networks to the 3GPP EPC network via the S2a interface, while acting as the default router for the WLAN UEs on its access link, and providing a softGRE data path toward the WLAN UE. TWAG also enables independent scaling of CEPs, sessions and throughput, and applies real‑time integrated subscriber, session and application intelligence for network optimization and monetization of new services.
HNB-GW (Home Node B Gateway) and HeNB-GW (Home eNode B Gateway) solutions enable simple, seamless, highly‑secure access to subscribers, and function as X2 and S1 proxy gateways. Supporting hundreds of thousands of HNBs and HeNBs and millions of UEs per chassis, we have raised the bar for performance and scalability. Working in conjunction with SeGW, our HNB and HeNB-GW deliver tightly integrated and flexible solutions to meet the evolving demands of today.
ePDG is a highly reliable carrier‑grade solution, with all the features you need to extract the benefits from untrusted Wi-Fi, without the risks. Massively scalable in terms of IPSec tunnels and throughput, ePDG enables independent scaling of CEPs, sessions and throughput. Security, encryption and authentication are applied to every packet with no degradation of performance. And real‑time integrated subscriber, session and application intelligence are applied for both network optimization and monetization of new services.
Our Axyom Evolved Packet Core (EPC) is a complete and virtualized solution that provides you with the scalability, flexibility and performance needed to deliver new services quickly and efficiently. Running on COTS X86 hardware, our Axyom EPC supports independent scaling for CEPs, sessions and throughput, and can be deployed in your network for IoT (Internet of things) applications, on-premise or at the network edge – wherever it makes sense to support network functions.
Axyom EPC functions are 3GPP compliant and include (MME) functions to support signal exchanges between the subscriber, eNB and the core network, as well as SGW and PGW functions to support bearer establishment to an external network.
