SS7ware, a mobile network solutions vendor, announced today that it verified the interoperability of the new iPhone 6 with their compact solution, the Unified Core NetworkTM , by performing the industry’s first VoLTE call from a GSM mobile phone to a VoLTE capable iPhone 6, through a single unified switch.
The new iPhone 6 incorporates a Qualcomm LTE modem that has been very well received by the IT&C industry. According to “Forbes” magazine, Qualcomm’s LTE chipsets registered over 40% of the total baseband shipments in 2013 and their cellular basebands are the top choice of large industry device manufacturers like Samsung, LG, Sony or Google.1
As the recent interoperability test proved, SS7ware’s Unified Core Network is a core solution for LTE and 2/2.5G networks, adapted to the present and future needs of the telecom market as it is compatible with one of the most utilized VoLTE basebands on the market. The SS7 product simplifies the network design without impacting the scaling of the system, resulting in lower deployment and management costs, implementing all functions of a MSC/VLR, GGSN, SAE and IMS in a single unit.
“It is a great accomplishment for us to see what we have envisaged in theory getting into shape so fast. This interoperability test proves that our compact equipment provides good service on both LTE and GSM networks and that at the same time it is aligned to meet the most important requirements of the current and future telecom market: seamless service and user experience. It is definitely a step forward in our development process.”,
states Diana Cionoiu, CEO of SS7Ware, Inc.
“Not only does the Unified Core Network provide unified support for 2G and 4G networks, but it’s probably the most affordable core network on the market.”,
