Hardware is only as good as the software it runs. Wireless software must optimize system performance to meet the needs of today's bandwidth-intensive applications.
With wireless technology generations updating continuously and deployment models shifting to non-proprietary multi-vendor environments, software must be highly interoperable and conform to constantly evolving standards.
Our field-proven portfolio of wireless protocol stacks and software frameworks helps Telecom Equipment Manufacturers (TEMs) jumpstart development of new products or feature enhancements. They can significantly cut down on R&D expenses compared with ground-up development, and their proven interoperability and standards compliance helps de-risk engineering efforts.
Our software has been pre-optimized for leading hardware platforms, providing TEMs with much-needed flexibility in choosing the most suitable hardware platform. Our protocol stacks and software support a wide range of contemporary and legacy wireless technologies for both access and core networks.
Creating the First eNodeB Base Station Solution
We conceptualized, developed and helped launch one of the first eNodeB base station for a leading mobile infrastructure vendor in Japan. Our software frameworks helped accelerate the launch of the solution by 6 months.
LTE is the fastest growing mobile technology ever, and over 18 customers have already chosen our 3GPP-compliant software frameworks for the LTE access and the core. We provide several software frameworks for LTE eNodeB, LTE EPC (Evolved Packet Core), and for LTE devices.
Small-cell technologies such as femtocells are fast becoming an integral part of the high speed wireless data revolution. Providing benefits such as improved coverage and data offload, these technologies are here to stay. Our femtocell software framework helps TEMs quickly develop 3G, LTE, and dual mode femtocell and femto gateway products.
WiMAX is one of the most mature 4G technologies around today. Aricent has been a pioneer in this space, with software frameworks for WiMAX base stations and ASN gateways of multiple form factors. We provide a suite of WiMAX Protocol Stacks and Software Frameworks.
Aricent's nexGen Software Framework is a hardware-agnostic, software-based signaling platform which helps ASPs to cost-effectively deliver carrier-grade VAS applications. It features an intuitive user interface and a comprehensive set of APIs to simplify development.
Signaling Protocol Stacks
We offer a wide variety of individually licensable protocol stacks for multiple technologies in the wireless domain, including stacks for 3G wireless, SS7, SIGTRAN, and DIAMETER-based networks. Learn more.
GPRS Software Frameworks
Our GSN/GSN-Lite Software Framework helps TEMs build compact, high performance GPRS Support Nodes (GSN) that can be deployed as a SGSN or GGSN or both.
Fixed Mobile Convergence
Service Continuity Server (SCS 2100L) is a software framework fully compliant with 3GPP Voice Call Continuity (VCC) specifications that facilitates Fixed Mobile Convergence (FMC).
Wireless Local Area Network
Our WLAN 802.11F, or Inter-Access Point Protocol (IAPP), stack provides wireless access point communication among multi-vendor systems using well-defined interfaces. This stack provides a ready solution for OEMs who wish to incorporate 802.11F functionality in their Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) products.
WLAN Software Protocol Stacks
We offers a portfolio of protocol stacks and software frameworks that help manufacturers bring new access point and WLAN controller products to market more quickly, and with lower costs and risks.
