Wireless Packet Core/Evolved Packet Core (EPC)
Mobile data traffic and smartphone signaling continue to experience explosive growth. Thus, operators must continually add capacity to their networks without letting costs spiral out of control. Vendors are then tasked with delivering solutions that offer constantly improving price/performance in terms of sessions, transactions per second, bandwidth, and subscriber capacity. Moreover, LTE-based networks require a new core network architecture, namely EPC. These trends have converged to create a fast growing, dynamic, and highly competitve market.
