JSC Ingenium shortlisted for the LTE Awards

JSC Ingenium has just been shortlisted for its “MAP IWF Advanced CSFB” in the LTE Awards “Best Contribution to R&D for LTE” category organized by INFORMA.

MAP IWF Advanced CSFB provides CSFB (Circuit Switched Fall Back) voice services from 4G LTE to 3G without some of the main drawbacks of the technology.

CSFB is the currently preferred solution to provide voice calls over LTE without the need to invest in VoLTE Core while taking advantage of currently deployed 2G/3G infrastructure.

Standard CSFB deployment requires 3G MSCs/VLRs to be upgraded and GMSCs to support SGs interfaces, enforce a combined LTE/3G radio planning and combined operation via TA-LA list updates, and may provoke a bad user experience in terms of call set up delay. LTE/3G joint radio planning is typically undesirable and even impossible.

Advanced CSFB provides a gateway based on JSC Ingenium MAP IWF technology to avoid the need to make any upgrade on the 3G network and isolates 3G and LTE networks to avoid the need of combined radio planning. Additionally, it provides enablement services to communicate 3G and LTE infrastructure.

The awards will be announced on the evening on the 23rd May, during the LTE World Summit 2012 that will take place on the 22-24th May in Barcelona (Spain).
