Alepo Selects Parallel Wireless Technology for Public Safety LTE Network-in-a-Box

In response to the growing demand for end-to-end LTE based public safety networks, Alepo, the leading LTE solutions provider selected Parallel Wireless, the leading LTE technology provider, for a joint public safety LTE Network-in-a-box solution that can lower deployment time and costs without sacrificing performance and security.

Monday, October 23, Austin, TX –  Ahead of AfricaCom 2017, Alepo today announced the selection of  Parallel Wireless (www.parallelwireless.com) technology to provide LTE-based network-in-a-box for the global public safety market. The announcement is supported with a trial with a first responder network in the Pacific Rim region prone to earthquakes. The fire, police, and ambulance services in the region will benefit greatly from an independent, private network that doesn’t rely on the public communications networks, which can go down or be congested during an emergency.

The combined public safety solution provides an end-to-end, LTE ready, mission-critical network-in-a-box. The solution pairs Alepo’s PCRF and HSS with Parallel Wireless’s RAN hardware, microwave backhaul, HetNet gateway and embedded evolved packet core. As an end-to-end package, the solution yields significant cost-saving benefits, including a ready and rapid deployment, proven interoperability, and ease of daily operations.

According to the latest market research report published by MarketsandMarkets, the public safety LTE market is expected to be valued over USD 3 billion by 2023, growing at a CAGR of 25.7% from USD 782.9 million in 2017. As per the report, the government initiatives toward public safety, and the rising demand for unmanned operations and remote surveillance is driving the need for public safety LTE infrastructure and services.

Private LTE network-in-a-box, tailored for emergency services and tactical communication needs, can be transformative for first responders, especially in areas where there is no existing coverage or coverage is spotty. The joint public safety solution can be deployed in various tactical and multi-cast environments, from police station coverage to ad-hoc scenarios in case of emergencies. 4G LTE in public safety gives law enforcement the advantage to access information, stream video, and collaborate in real time. “LTE can allow public safety field personnel to use bandwidth-intensive applications, such as real-time video/CCTV, which narrowband data networks cannot deliver,” said Derrick Gross, Vice President of Business Development at Alepo. “The public safety LTE market is coming out of the infancy stage and has already experienced good growth trajectory in the last few years, which, in our eyes, is a sure sign of an optimistic future.”

Alepo Introduces a 3GPP Home Subscriber Server

Alepo Introduces a 3GPP Home Subscriber Server

Alepo introduces a 3GPP HSS Server to provide authentication, authorization, session and centralized identification management for 4G networks.

February 18, 2010, Austin, TX — Alepo today announced its introduction of a 3GPP Home Subscriber Server (HSS), providing OSS services to providers migrating to 4G. Based on Alepo’s record high-performing AAA Server, the HSS Server provides authentication, authorization, session and centralized identification management across all next generation services.

A 3GPP HSS is a central network element for any IMS or LTE deployment and aids in the deployment of Evolved Packet Systems (EPS). The HSS Server acts as a policy decision point, containing subscriber identity information, including plan information such as quality of service and other access parameters. The HSS helps streamline NGN networks by centralizing account information for all NGN services offered.

“Alepo is committed to helping providers migrate into 4G services with a 3GPP HSS Server that is leading the market, stated Jonathan Garini, Vice President of Products at Alepo. “Alepo recognizes that an efficient, reliable, and secure HSS Server is a core element in any 4G architecture, and has built our product with these qualities in mind,” he concluded.

Alepo’s 3GPP HSS is based on its popular AAA Server, which has been in deployment for over ten years and used by carrier-grade providers worldwide for a variety of next generation services. Praised for its high performance, it has been a core Alepo offering since the company began. As AAA functions migrate to new network elements as the industry evolves, Alepo continues to design new products with the same commitment to efficiency and reliability found in its core offerings.
