The software-defined mobile network solution is based on YateENB (4G LTE) or YateBTS (2.5G GSM/GPRS) running on the SatSite base station, with the YateUCN TM unified LTE/IMS/GSM/GPRS core network. The SatSite and the YateUCN use non-proprietary software and run on commodity hardware. Together, the YateUCN and the SatSite provide a complete, redundant mobile network for cost-effective deployments.
The SatSite Model 142 LTE/GSM base station
The SatSite Model 142 is a complete 4G LTE eNodeB, containing both the radio and baseband functions. It can also be configured to operate as a 2.5G GSM/GPRS BTS+BSC (a self-contained BSS) that communicates directly with the YateUCN. Its low power consumption makes it easy to operate anywhere in the world.
A cellular network using the SatSite allows for major CAPEX and OPEX savings. The base station's lightweight design reduces installation and maintenance costs, and does not require external support for installation. It uses software-defined radio technology, enabling dynamic capacity adjustment and upgrades to future standards with a simple software change.
The YateUCN unified core network
The YateUCN replaces all of the LTE/IMS/GSM/GPRS core network functions and protocols with software and interoperates with any existing deployment. The YateUCN can be used to deploy new LTE networks and, since it integrates the GSM/GPRS layers, it delivers a seamless handover to the circuit-switched network whenever needed.
SatSite/YateUCN networks provide flexibility and ease of operation. The use of general-purpose hardware and low power consumption allow for network densification and cost reduction while serving more customers.
In addition, our complete SD mobile network solution brings higher resilience when operating in remote locations.
Extend your network
The YateUCN can be used to extend LTE mobile networks or to add LTE to GSM/GPRS networks. The unified core network replaces all of the layers of the LTE core - the EPC (Evolved Packet Core) and the IMS (IP Multimedia Subsystem) for VoLTE. It works with any standard eNodeB and Home Subscriber Server (HSS) used by the operator.
The YateUCN core network allows LTE users to be handed over to the operators' GSM or UMTS networks without requiring updates to their existing deployments. Since YateUCN supports the SS7 MAP protocol, it can also connect to HLRs in 2G/3G networks.
Extending LTE networks or upgrading to LTE calls for new infrastructure that is compatible to any current architecture. Vendor-specific support and lead time add to the costs. Because YateUCN uses commodity hardware, it minimizes the time to market and offers operators flexibility in scaling their network by adding new functions or separating existing ones.
