Hi3G ACCESS AB (Hi3G) deploys CSFB with Mavenir Systems
Stockholm, Sweden and Richardson, TX, USA – August 30, 2012 – Mavenir Systems, a leading innovator of mobile infrastructure solutions for Long Term Evolution (LTE) operators, was selected by Hi3G Access AB (Hi3G) Sweden for the deployment of Circuit Switch Fallback (CSFB).
Circuit Switch Fallback (CSFB) enables circuit-switched voice and SMS services to be delivered to LTE handsets so they "fall back" to the 3G network to complete voice calls. With CSFB, Hi3G can support the new LTE-enabled smartphones for voice and SMS.
Mavenir’s proven VoLTE IWF (InterWorking Function) has demonstrated very rapid implementation into any network, thereby providing Hi3G with an extremely fast time to market, enabling Hi3G to get the system up and the network ready quickly with minimal impact on the current network as no network upgrades are required.
“CSFB is essential to the introduction of LTE smartphones before VoLTE is introduced. We selected Mavenir because of their proven CSFB technology, their speed to market and the ease of integrating into our LTE network,” said Mr. Magnus Berg, project owner at Hi3G.
“We are happy to bring our agility and speed to Hi3G with our VoLTE IWF system.” said Pardeep Kohli, president and chief executive officer of Mavenir Systems. “We remain focused on delivering differentiated solutions for customers that enable mobile network operators to offer next generation enhanced communication services.”
Both functions supported by Mavenir’sVoLTE IWF, CSFB and SRVCC, share the same hardware and software platform, Mavenir’s carrier grade, ATCA-based, mOne® Convergence Platform.
