Networks are evolving from IN to NGN, and subscribers wish to activate multiple IN and IMS services on their mobile phones (e.g. fun tone and home zone for prepaid, and IP Centrex for virtual private networks etc).
Offering customers the ability to subscribe to more than one service simultaneously requires workarounds that tend to be complex, or limits the operator to a single vendor for all services. The results are significant service restrictions, network inefficiencies and loss of potential revenue.
The Starhome® NG Service Broker™ solution combines Starhome’s IN/SIP expertise and the 3GPP standards for SCIM IMS into a core network element that enables multiple services working together. The NG Service Broker allows seamless service orchestration of any existing or future IN/CAP/SIP/IMS services.
The NG Service Broker solution overcomes the limitation of IN networks and enhances IN capabilities to enable multiple IN trigger support for a single IN service event, such as a call, an SMS or a data session.
