Stockholm, Sweden, 7 July 2015 – Polystar, a leading supplier of Network and Customer Analytics, Network Monitoring, and Service Enablement solutions to the telecoms industry, today announced that it has been selected by Cirrus Core Networks (CCN) to launch a fully virtualised, managed Voice over LTE (VoLTE) service.
CCN, headquartered in Boca Raton, Florida, offers a fully managed LTE and VoLTE service from its innovative, fully virtualised infrastructure. Its customers include MNOs, MVNOs, and IoT/M2M providers that leverage CCN’s advanced infrastructure in order to capitalise on flexible deployment and commercial models.
ODIN, a recent addition to the Polystar’s innovative range of Service Enablement solutions, is a powerful, turnkey IMS application server that enables the rapid launch of VoLTE services. By implementing Polystar’s Over Data Intelligent Networking solution – ODIN, CCN’s customers will benefit from a complete LTE solution, covering both voice and data.
“As an LTE operator, delivering a rich, high quality voice service is mandatory,” commented Adam Crane, CEO of CCN. “Polystar’s ODIN provided the flexibility we required with regards to deployment options and SBC interworking, bringing greater value to our customers and their investments in our managed service portfolio. Partnering with Polystar enables us to provide rapid deployment of LTE services, such as VoLTE, allowing our customers a much faster and more economical route to market and deliver a full HD voice service that ensures our clients can differentiate themselves from other providers and in turn offer their customers a better experience.”
Based on the ETSI standards of NFV, CCN’s innovative, fully virtualised network has played a critical role in its success. The advanced infrastructure provides the flexibility and potential for rapid differentiation that has enabled CCN to deliver a rich and evolving service portfolio. Polystar’s ODIN NFV solution was designed from the outset for deployment in virtualised environments, providing the perfect extension to CCN’s infrastructure.
ODIN also provides a platform for the expansion and future evolution of CCN’s network. It offers advanced networking capabilities that ensure compatibility with CCN’s session border control layer and connectivity to peer and partner networks. Powerful multi-tenancy features mean that CCN can offer managed VoLTE services to its different partners, from a flexible and highly scalable virtualised infrastructure, deployed within rapid timelines.
“Polystar’s commitment to virtualisation means that ODIN could easily be integrated into CCN’s LTE network infrastructure,” said Göran Mannerstråle, CEO of Polystar Systems AB. “Our shared vision means that CCN will benefit, not only from VoLTE, but also from future Voice over WiFi capabilities.”
Polystar’s Service Enablement solutions allow MNOs to confidently launch new services and deploy network enhancements. ODIN enables rich voice services to be offered from an IMS core. Alternatively, ODIN can operate as a stand-alone platform, enabling MNOs to offer VoLTE and VoWiFi services without the necessity of deploying a complete IMS solution.
CCN was created by a core group of seasoned telecom executives sharing a common belief that Network Functions Virtualization heralds a paradigm shift in wireless. The company was launched to accelerate LTE and IMS network revenue through fast and cost-effective deployment of cloud based NFV solutions. With its current offering of IaaS fully managed packet core, IMS, content delivery and applications, CCN offers MNOs the most comprehensive and innovative solution. CCN’s corporate headquarters, hosting facility and NOC are in Boca Raton, FL with additional offices and hosting facilities in London, UK.
