3G – Small Cell Framework and Core network

3G is still widely deployed across many countries and will continue to co-exist with LTE and other technologies for many years to come. 3G provides both voice and data services, and encompasses various versions that can provide transfer rates ranging from 200 KBPS to several MBPS.

Aricent offers a comprehensive suite of products and services for the 3G software,includes GSN (SGSN, GGSN) software stacks, 3GPP Iu Interface stacks, HNB Gateway, Small Cell Software Framework and a dual mode small cell framework that can simultaneously support both 3G and LTE, designed to help vendors build high-quality solutions with pre-tested and pre-optimized components.
